Went in on a quiet week night looking to have a bowel of soul and salads. We were told we couldn't just order this. We got up and left. They were rude in their approach and offered no discussion. Needless to say we won't go back. Went next door to the The Rowan and they were extremely happy to see... More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in Ottawa. Good meats and you can choose how spicy food you want. The only drawback is the shortage of parking space.

The service was ok but a bit slow (we had to get our water ourselves), most buffet dishes were already almost empty at 12:45 and were not replenished although the restaurant only clses at 14:00; fortunately the server brought us 3 dishes at the table to compensate for the lack of food in the buffet. The nan was fresh and... More

We stumbled across this Indian restaurant by accident whilst looking for another restaurant on trip advisor. We decided to give it ago despite it being a taxi ride away. We weren't disappointed. The food was just excellent, as was the service. We arrived and were given a few minutes to settle in before being approached for our drinks order and... More

We took my daughter on a Sunday night in chilly February. Received a warm welcome. The food was delicious, the menu varied and extensive. The price was a little higher than we are used to for Indian food, but we are spoiled as we live near Brampton, Ontario :-). The waiters were super friendly and we had a fabulous time.... More

We had a lovely dinner for two. Lovely atmosphere, great service, and delicious food. We had the tandoori chicken, vegetable curry, basmati, naan, Rhaita and rasmali to finish it off!! Highly recommended!

This place is so charming and their service is always excellent! The menu is diverse and has fantastic vegetarian and non-vegetarian options so you can go with any kind of group. My only complaint is that the samosas are huge and the centres of them are always frozen even though the outside is still super hot. If you skip the... More

We've lived in Ottawa since 2007 and have eaten at the Taj at least 25 times. We've eaten at several other restaurants of course, including those serving Indian cuisine, but the Taj is the best by far. We always bring out-of-town family and friends to share our love for this eatery. My kids have grown up loving it, particularly when... More

Always good food and service in this long-established Ottawa Glebe restaurant. Fine choice of dishes, well served, and lots of help offered with unfamiliar items. Good house wine, quality table linens and attentive service. We are never disappointed, even with large crowds enjoying a pre-game meal, service was smooth and efficient.
