I was very disappointed with the restaurant and should have taken more time to read others' reviews on here first and especially before I ordered the onion bhajias (deep fried onion rings from the freezer!). We also waited a long time for the food to arrive and people who arrived after us had their food served first, not a big... More

I felt compelled to write this as the food was exceptional. We had the Bombay beef with rice a cheese naan. The best we have ever had. The waitress by the name of Chloe was excellent and efficient. A fantastic good value night out.

Never wrote a review before but felt I had too. Worst Indian food I've had. Chicken meat all covered in skin & fat. Total waste of $80. Not recommended.

We have been regular home delivery customers of Tandoori Taj and every time we get amazing food. I remember one night whe my Wife asked me to order her the Vindaloo curry. I asked her "Are you sure?" as they are known to be really hot. Even the lady taking my order over the phone asked "Are you sure?". Long... More

Being from the UK, perhaps I'm spoilt for good Indian Restaurants - Australia typically doesn't fare so well. But I have to say this is probably the worst Indian meal I've ever experienced. My "onion bhaji" was a plate of deep fried onion rings. My Tandoori Chicken was exceptionally bland. I can't recommend it, sadly.

Went with Dad to try out the lunchtime curries. Really good Naan, very soft and flavoursome. We shared a Beef Akbami (I think that was what the second word was), its on the chef's specialties list. Really good. Very filling, very satisfying.

We're visiting Hervey Bay and a couple 'locals' we met took us here, on the recommendation of another local. We were delighted. We ordered a pre-set menu -- It appeared somewhat obscurely in the list of starters (and NOT on the take-away menu)...a banquet item for two, with a pre-set selection of starters and then each person ordering a main...

Price charged weren't the same shown on menu but weren't too bothered with a dollar or two jackup. Most unforgettable is the Chappati we ordered, it tasted, looked and felt exactly like a naan. We ordered another helping of a garlic naan at the same time. Cldnt tell the difference n hd to ask which is which. Maybe the locals... More

For an economical meal in a clean environment, this is the place. Do not go here for a romantic night out, this is more cafe than restaurant. Food is of a good standard and the staff are friendly. It is not licenced so bring your own drinks. We have had good take away from here too.

Ghosht Palakwala is the best. Check out the VERY reasonable menu: http://www.tandooritaj.com. The atmosphere could be improved but the food & service is superb.
