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 have eaten in lots of Indian restaurants over many years and this is possibly the worst. Had butter chicken and roghan Josh. Both tasteless.

Food is alright but service very rude and its just for takeaway really. We tried to dine in once but waited for ages until all the take always were served. When ordering takeaway next time I was shouted at for being 10 minutes too early.... And that was just the tip of the iceberg regarding the manners of the staff.... More

It's taken 11 years but I have finally found a real Indian restaurant. This is it. My husband went here for a work celebration and came home raving about it. So we took the kids down the following week and I must say that we were not disappointed. My children 11 and 7 love trying different foods and they ate... More

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...
