Well presented resturant, friendly and helpful staff and wonderful food - it was almost too hard to decide. Meals are well prepared and presented. If we were to eat here again, we would reduce the number of dishes as an entree and main each, to share, was much more than we required. Large drinks list with good quality local wines... More

Luckily for us, other restaurants in Launecston were not open on Monday nights, so we went into Aaj for our final night in Tasmania dinner. We didn't choose many items but the couple we had were beautiful. The spice blend was exceptional with great balance and flavour. Staff were very courteous and helpful and the restaurant and facilities were exceptionally... More

Had a couple birthday dinners here and what I like the most is that you can order lots of little things and make a family banquet yourself. I enjoy the Tandoor Platter and the Butter Prawns. The garlic Naan is awesome! Sometimes the English is a barrier with the servers, but we managed to get everything we needed.

This placed turned out to be a really nice surprise. The "Paneer Masala" was definitely a winner. So much that I've been coming back to this place with friends. Have yet to try everything on the menu. Some notables: - Cumin rice is definitely worth the upgrade - Mango chicken is really really mangoey (for the sweet tooth) - Lamb... More

Thoroughly enjoyed dining here. Meals were fantastic and very filling. The staff were friendly and the lovely lady who served our table went above and beyond. Highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys authentic Indian.

Our group consisted of nine people, and we all really enjoyed the atmosphere and meals. The only issue was some of the dishes that were meant to be very mild, ended up being too spicy for some of the members in our party. However we were all very impressed with the atmosphere and the outstanding service from the staff. They... More

Our second visit was just as good as the first two years before. Enjoyed the Tandoori Sizzler as entree for four, followed by an excellent chicken vindaloo, lamb roganjosh and the hit of the evening being the Daal Makhini made with black lentils. The Mt Langi Shiraz went perfectly. The staff were friendly and helpful and the chef explains the... More

My chicken curry was dry and had too much seasoning. The seasoning on the chicken was overpowering and the sauce was smothered all over the chicken. The whole thing tasted bad. I could not taste the chicken at all. Much improvement is required from this place before they can charge more.

This is the third review on this restaurant I have done and possibly the last. In my opinion, over the last couple of visits the overall standard has slipped to a point verging on unacceptable. Water in a bottle was taken from a table containing a dozen or so bottles of water, sitting under the overhead heater, and placed on... More

I recently ate here with a group of around 15 and we chose to book in for the banquet style menu at $35 a head. The staff were welcoming and their service was outstanding. The dishes were delicious and there was more than enough for everyone. My personal favourites were the Beef Vindaloo, the chicken Tikka and the Garlic Naan.... More
