We were on our way home and stopped in Owen Sound for dinner. We tried 3 dishes, a vindaloo, a korma, and a vegetarian dish loaded with chick peas. All 3 dishes were great! The man who owns the place is very personable and friendly.

Ate here from the lunch specials menu. Good portions, with good flavours without being too spicy (I like mild rather than strong flavours). The happy, chatty owner was welcoming and helpful. The restaurant has a slightly dated decor and little atmosphere at lunchtime. We later discovered that The Taj has a good reputation for take-outs. Definitely a place to go... More

Ate here for lunch while visiting Owen Sound. We happen to love the flavors and spice of the food from India and have found the Mr. Miah has the the right touch. We have also eaten at his old location in Toronto and were excited to find his new location in Owen Sound. His portions are very generous and flavors... More

Lucky to have the Taj right across the street from my office. Take out last night was the best Baighan Bhurta I've ever had. Ridiculously awesome veg pakora I could eat every day!

My son and I decided to drop in and check the Taj out. It is a an unpretentious restaurant with a decidedly 70's decor. The proprietor recommended the lunch special ($8.95) chicken curry. It almost felt like he wanted us the prefer the special as opposed selecting from the menu but we took him up on his recommendation. Voila! In... More

Came here for dinner on a Tuesday night. The place is quite small and wasn't busy. They had a special on for less than $12 that included rice, a chicken curry, somosa and naan. The meal was quite good. For two of us to eat and one beer came to $32. Can't beat the price. The owner was quite friendly... More

Very welcoming place for two road-weary travellers. We had the "Meal for Two" which was a selection of a bit of everything -- our way to test a new place. Nice home-made samosas and deliciously soft nan, lamb, beef, veggies, fragrant basmati rice. Because it was between lunch and dinner (3 p.m.), the owner had time to chat -- he... More
