Our local gem

We have been dining here since 1984 when we moved to Cambridge, just round the corner. The family who run it have always been extremely friendly, welcoming, helpful, and go out of their way to please. They really look after their 'regulars' and we invariably get complimentary starters.

Ordered takeaway from here as it was nearby. Chicken tikka masala, saag and fish curry were all excellent as well as the naan and paratha. On collection, staff were friendly and we were treated to free popadoms and dips. Will definitely order here again!

The people working here were very friendly, and the food was good. It was prepared quickly and the atmosphere was pleasant. I'll be returning.

Had a meal here after a lecture at Cambridge. Service excellent, food well prepared, fresh and tasty. I would definitely eat here again. If you're not sure what you want, just ask the staff, they really do want you to get a great meal and will amend their dishes so that you get exactly what you want.

Fantastic service and very good food with friendly staff who explain menu in great detail. Pub next door lets you bring glasses of beer into the restaurant and pick the glasses up later - seems tome to be the height of civilized eating and drinking!!!

Taj Tandoori is our go-to Indian restaurant for eating out and also, more often, for take away. Food is always excellent and they offer a wide range of food as well as a lot of vegetarian options. Service is always excellent and very friendly and you can see that they really care about their customers. If you order take away... More

We booked this restaurant for my dad's 80th birthday. Food was generally very good, and waiter serving us was very friendly and service was excellent. Nice place, but not a fine dining restaurant, atmosphere was lacking.

fine dining this is not . but a good old fashioned curry house with no pretence. the decor is old and tired but that does not effect the food which was very nice. not greasy , full of flavor in depth on the dishes not just the standard mix of paste that we have come across in other well decorated...

I have been eating regularly at the Taj Tandoori since 1987 and it is without doubt my favourite Indian restaurant in Cambridge. It is still owned and managed by the same family and the food quality and service has been consistently great over the years. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for good quality meal that doesn't break... More

Avid lovers of Indian food I found this restaurant caters towards the more economic end of the market and quite rightly so in a student rich location. Certainty it provides excellent value for money and the BYO facility only adds to this dimension (there is a Tesco Express nearby). I always like to try new dishes and did so on... More
