“A Pleasant Surprise in the Grey-Bruce Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

My son and I decided to drop in and check the Taj out. It is a an unpretentious restaurant with a decidedly 70's decor. The proprietor recommended the lunch special ($8.95) chicken curry. It almost felt like he wanted us the prefer the special as opposed selecting from the menu but we took him up on his recommendation. Voila! In less than 5 minutes our chicken curry was delivered. My son and I both felt the food was good and I would return to order off the main menu.

“Good food, cheap prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Came here for dinner on a Tuesday night. The place is quite small and wasn't busy. They had a special on for less than $12 that included rice, a chicken curry, somosa and naan. The meal was quite good. For two of us to eat and one beer came to $32. Can't beat the price. The owner was quite friendly and spoke with us throughout the meal. I recommend for a great meal at a low price.

“Great Indian in Owen Sound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Very welcoming place for two road-weary travellers. We had the "Meal for Two" which was a selection of a bit of everything -- our way to test a new place. Nice home-made samosas and deliciously soft nan, lamb, beef, veggies, fragrant basmati rice. Because it was between lunch and dinner (3 p.m.), the owner had time to chat -- he even brought us (free!) basmati rice pudding for dessert -- delicious! We were stuffed and took our leftovers home for another meal. We will be back again.
