A great night for a special celebration!

My son chose this restaurant for his 21st birthday celebration, based on a recent previous visit. When we arrived, the balloons I had ordered were placed on the table that I had particularly requested which set the tone for a great night. I hosted a banquet for nine guests for $35 pp. This... read more

My wife and I walked passed this restaurant and while it only had a few tables occupied, called in for a meal that we both thought was the best Indian food we have had. We ordered the chicken korma which was very tender with creamy nutty sauce, lamb vindaloo, spicy and hot with the lamb falling apart, the vegetable rice... More

For someone who once loved Aaj, I am incredibly disappointed with the service I received last time I went there. The waiter seemed as though they wanted to be anywhere else but at work that night. Being one of three groups in the restaurant there is no excuse for the poor service, not being offered more drinks, asking how our... More

Only in Launceston a few days and saw from TripAdvisor there were several Indian restaurants here. Menu was pretty standard. I ordered chicken madras saffron rice and a roti. Firstly the chicken had obviously been cooked in tandoor first then heated up with some sort of curry-type sauce. I could tell this from the red coating on the chicken pieces... More

To our surprise we were lucky to find Aaj Indian restaurant in Launceston. Authentic flavors, made fresh and truly worth a try. This place was must better than most Indian cuisine in Sydney. Enjoyed main course curry and freshly made tandoor roti(flat bread)

We were the only in the restaurant, probably we entered the restaurant a bit early in the evening. We did not like the way we were received. Took very long to serve the food. The food was not tasty, half of the rotis were over cooked and burnt with black charcoal appearance. We never visited this place again during our... More

Ordered meat samosa to start dry dry and dry and lettuce on plate was soaked in vinegar not salad dressing.

No one except us and even then the owner could not be friendly to his only customer! Lady was friendly. Food was very salty and tasted horrible. Please dont visit this place
