Best Indian Food in Years

I walked 3 miles round-trip from my hotel to eat here and it was worth every single step. The Taj Barbeque was superb, as was the Chicken Tikka Jalfrezi. Super friendly staff as well. I will eat here at least once every time I am in Cambridge.

Was visiting Cambridge for weekend and found this place on trip advisor and was not disappointed! service was fantastic and the delivery guy even dropped us home so can't recommend this place enough. Food prices are a tiny bit pricey but is definitely worth it as the quality is good. Will definitely be going back again!

Have tried quite a few different Indian places in Cambridge and Taj Tandoori is my favourite. Have done the takeaway option and also the dine in option and both do not disappoint. The curries are delicious and the staff are friendly. And, if you are up for the challenge, definitely try the Bengal Tiger and then cure the slickness with... More

I have been living in Cambridge for over 10 years and have invariably tasted food from many Indian restaurants, of which there are many in the city. Often with these restaurants, the experience is a disappointing one and it makes me never want to go there again. This has even been my experience with the newish Navadhanya restaurant (currently ranked... More

From the outside we weren't sure if the restaurant is open - we arrived early and no one else was inside. However, after coming in and ordering we were relieved to see that the service was good and the food is very good. The restaurant soon packed out with two large group bookings.

This really is the best curry house in Cambridge and that is not just coming from a one off visit. As a local to the restaurant my friends and I eat here very regularly and thought it was about time we gave this amazing restaurant a review. The waiters are exceptionally courteous, welcoming and accommodating whenever we visit and the... More
