My best friend and I come here regularly for the buffet lunch. The service here is wonderful, always very attentive, prompt, and courteous. The food is incredibly delicious, very authentic. The buffet is affordable, and gives you a chance to try a number of different dishes, all of which are so tasty! Tara's is super-clean, beautifully decorated with lots of... More

Ordered several dishes for take out and we were very impressed with food. Excellent option for delivery especially if you're not in the mood for pizza or wings.

After having read reviews and it being the only Indian restaurant, we were disappointed in the food. Service was great and attentive, but food was just okay!

There is a reason why the restaurant is always full and many return again and again - the food is great! All of the staff were very helpful and made some recommendations based on the vast selection of choices on the menu. We will return.

What a treat! After reading some of the ratings, we were a bit leery of visiting Tara again, after about a year away. ( we live quite a distance from here). We were not disappointed. It was every bit as good as before. I am excited that we still have a wonderful Indian restaurant to come to.

Came here for dinner as it has been recommended by many people. We had the butter chicken and naan and an incredibly spicy dish which name slips my mind. They were both rich, tasty and fragrantly spiced. Good all around food but slightly expensive. We will return

VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, not even 1 person came to the table to ask for water for 20 mins!!!! When asked the owner and waiter to improve their hospitality for future - they asked us to leave if they don't like the service!! VERY BAD & EMBARRASSING EXPERIENCE

I can only comment on the lunch buffet. Visiting friends in town and decided to check it out - well located and can't miss it. Nice looking restaurant - compact but flows well. Everything at the buffet was flavourful and kept coming in fresh. Had about three plates of goodness favouring the veggie dishes. The selection in the GTA is... More

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to delivery from Tara last night. We were astounded by the prices on the menu, but we decided to go for it as a treat. I ordered chana masala. My husband ordered butter chicken. Both meals were terrible. I have tried many versions of chana masala over the years, since it is... More
