Had the banquet for two. Fairly good value for money. A platter of starters to share, two good sized curries with poppadom, nan bread, raita and mango chutney . The venue was clean, modern, with an oriental feel because of the colour scheme.

Ordered a number of curries as there was a group of us (we got the deal of 4 x curries and nan bread). The flavours just weren't there. Very bland indeed. Please use more spice and balance the flavours. Took the left overs home which was a big mistake as the next day it was just disgusting and floating in... More

We have been eating from Tandoori Taj for about 3 years now, on a regular basis. Their Curries are delicious, their service is fantastic, and the owners come across as just down to earth real people who want their customers to enjoy their food.

Food was pretty good but the chick at the front counter really didn't want to be there - she was young and resented not being out with her Aussie Mates

We love our Indian and this restaurant did not disappoint. We ordered madras, vindaloo and tikka masala. All were fantastic, the right heat and roti also very good. Great prices, byo, fast no fuss service and great food. Happy holidayers!

My husband and I live in UK and are of Indian origin. We ordered chicken butter masala, amritsari fish and a prawn malabar - as a take away. Fish amritsari is a well known traditional dry fish dish coated in spice - we were provided with scant pieces of fish and potatoes floating in a sea of gravy ! The... More

We went with some friends to Hervey Bay recently. While strolling on the Esplanade we discovered this place and went in to try their cuisine. We did not have any expectations as we just wanted to have a meal. However when the food came we were pleasantly surprised...The Chicken Tikka Masala was heavenly and the Naans were the right consistency.... More

This was our second visit to the Tandoori Taj in a little over a week. Impressed by our first visit we decided to see what else this great family run restaurant had to offer. The first thing you notice upon entering the restaurant is the kitchen visible through a large viewing window. This spotless kitchen is run by the very... More
