The choice of curry houses in Cambridge is pretty good, however The Taj is quite simply the best. Not only is the food consistently superb but the customer service from management and staff is second to none. An absolute gem.

My brother visits here often and so when I moved to Cambridge this was the first place he brought me for dinner. It doesn't look like much from the outside but oh my, the food is delicious! Great service and really friendly staff, although when I visited the chefs were having a shouting match in the kitchen next to our... More

Been coming here on and off for many years now and it has only improved over time. The food is excellent and the staff friendly. A cut above your average Indian place.

I'd passed this place before but hadn't thought about trying it until reading the fantastic reviews. They are definitely deserved. The food was so delicious, especially the lamb tikka. The staff were very friendly, warm and helpful and they help create a lovely atmosphere. So whilst the outside doesn't suggest anything special, go inside to find out otherwise!

Table booked for ten. This restaurant lets you take your own drink. The food is excellent and relaxing. Not rushed at all and the staff are so friendly. The décor is plain but so clean. Such a lovely evening was had by all of us. Would recommend this restaurant as a place to eat lovely food and relax. Thank you... More

Ordered a birthday takeaway, having had good reports of the place. Told it would be 45 mins to an hour. Accepted that, although surprised it would take that long. After an hour had a phone call from a chap who seemed to be a good few streets away. Tried to direct him but his English was not good. He passed... More

Went here a couple of weeks back - what can I say ! Service fabulous, the waiters were very accommodating to our large group and great humour. Food was really good also. Definitely the best curry spot in cambridge - an absolute gem

This restaurant is getting quite popular now. It used to be a local secret among curry connoisseurs who lived around the Cherry Hinton Road area. They have some really nice and unique dishes on the menu - in particular I'd recommend their seafood specialities or if you like a really hot curry their Bengal Tiger is one of the spiciest... More

On the outside just another curry house. But when you enter this humble abode you discover a hive of activity with incredible Indian food being served to eager locals. It reminded me of a Brick Lane curry house, simple decor but outstanding quality food. I can't recommend this place enough. I asked for suggestions on a lamb dish and the... More

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.
