This is a great restaurant off the beaten path. We especially liked the lamb tika passanda and the fish meal they have just introduced. The staff is very friendly and provided us with some great suggestions. Highly recommended!

The staff are incredibly friendly and the food is just great! I feel really lucky that this is at the end of my road. All the curries I have tried are great (I would particularly recommend anything with fish - just so moist and delicious) and I go on about their naans to anyone who will listen to me. The... More

Have been many times to this restaurant either with my wife or with friends. The food is more than perfect. The staff is always polite and eager to serve you at best level. Have never left this restaurant with any complaints.

This unpretentious curry house is a local secret. It's our favourite for a well-priced decent meal, and you can bring your own bottles with no corkage fee. Don't be put off by first appearances, the takeaway section is in the front and the restaurant at the rear. The food has always been really great here, served with a smile and... More

Love this place - we are lucky to have it locally. Really lovely, friendly staff and the best curries and daals in Cambridge! The well-presented and nicely-organised menu boasts a good variety of dishes. Feels unpretentious and relaxing. We have organised two birthday parties here as well for roughly 20 people and we had a great time! Everyone loved the... More

We visited here on recommendations through this website. We were visiting Cambridge for the day, Addenbrookes to be more precise and it was a lovely 20 minute walk from the hospital. We arrived early at 6pm this Tuesday. It's a large restaurant with lots of tables and as time went on you could see it was popular for takeaways and... More

if I was on my own looking at this restaurant from the outside I would have walked on and inside could do with a bit of a facelift. However walked in and warmly greeted by local staff and just got better and better. Another chirpy member of staff actually took the trouble to advise us on certain dishes recommended different...

From the outside this looks a bit uninviting. On the inside its a bit shabby. Don't ever let that stop you from eating here though! The food is outstanding with a huge variety of choice. The staff service is exceptional with a great blend of speed, courtesy and humour. We had good banter with Sadiq who made us feel really... More

Whilst we simply ordered a takeout my 9 year old and 5 year old were engaged by the waiter and he was genuinely interested in what we wanted and liked, he talked to me about just how spicy I like my dishes, he pointed out simple things that I might have overlooked such as the dish included a naan but...

Since its inception in 1986, Taj Tandoori has been providing locals, students and visitors of the Cherry Hinton road area of Cambridge, with the exotic culinary delights that can only be found from the rich heritage of the Indian sub continent. Our goal is to put our customer first whether it is dining in at the restaurant, ordering a takeout meal or catering for that ever special event. Our menu offers a wide range of both traditional and contemporary dishes influenced by the many different regions of South Asia in striking yet informal surroundings. The intense flavours and pungent aromas that come from our dishes are created from the use of only the freshest of ingredients. With an abundant choice of foods ranging from street food favourites, tandoori grills and many regional curries, the only problem you will encounter is what to choose! We are one of the very few if not only restaurant in Cambridge that has a BYO alcohol policy. This gives you the freedom to choose which wine or beer to bring to your meal and also saves you from paying high restaurant prices for your alcohol! We also provide for in-house parties, banquets, buffets, weddings and various other outdoor catering events in the UK.
