Yummy curry

We went as a family with a 5 year old and an 11 year old. Because it was busy we had a little wait for the meal but it was definatley worth the wait. Very delicious and would definately go back.

We went to this restaurant for an evening meal. It was great!!! The waiter helped us with our choices and the food was superb. Service was excellent and we did not have to wait long before the first course was served. The main came soon after we hade finished hot flavoursome and large serves. We ate banquet style and the...

We've been to Hervey Bay twice, and we've been to Tandoori Taj twice. It's so good you have to go back. Both times we have ordered take-away and eaten in the comfort of our hotel room. Defiantly would go back again next time. The only disappointing thing was the onion bahji has been taken off the menu and has been... More

Best service & fish curry/ biryani in the bay! Don't undersell because of external appearance. Wish I'd found this gem sooner!

Simple restaurant, poor service (from staff, but great service from the owners) but brilliant Indian cooking. The low-brow surroundings don't do this food justice and you absolutely MUST eat here if you appreciate great Indian cuisine. $60 will pay for a great 2-course meal for two people with a few extras, BYO a bottle of wine and you have a...

We did a take away while our stay at Hervey Bay. Few things that disappointed me: 1. It took them few minutes to understand the order over the phone. I could say that maybe because of my Indian Australian accent but comm'on if you can't understand my proper indian accent when ordering Indian food, then you shouldn't be on the... More

The food at Tondari Taj is the best I have ever Tasted. I have traveled to many countries and always crave Indian when I am away as no one can master the flavours. I eat in and take away often and found the service, quality of food Fantastic. Guess what I'm having for tea tonight??? Yum Leanne Gillespie Number #1... More
