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

A friend took me here for dinner and it was wonderful. When the waiter came to take our dishes, he asked if we would like anything packed to go. I told him this was my first time here at the restaurant and he asked me which of the 2 main dishes I enjoyed more. When I got home I saw... More

We have frequented this restaurant for many years for take out. The quality and size of the orders have gone down and the price has gone up. As I write this, my husband is driving back to the restaurant to have 3 orders of burnt sheek kababs replaced. They were not edible and for $23 we were not prepared to... More

We have been coming here for years and would recommend the food, service and ambiance. Extensive menu and if you like extra spicy they will certainly co-operate and meet your needs. I love the chicken biryani - so moist and tender and the onion pakora are to die for

Thank threesharps
