Great buffet with a large selection of dishes. Lots of flavor, but could have used more spice in some items. I know they are trying to please everyone, but really, I went for the Indian food, it's meant to be spicy.

We dine out frequently, but we are regulars only at the Taj Mahal. In spite of it being 30 minutes from our home, we rely on this restaurant to provide a great experience, each and every time. There is no other place in Ottawa, at which we can combine a pleasant environment and very attentive service, with refined Indian cuisine.
Try the Prawn Puri -shrimps sautéed with spices and herbs served over a puri (a very light naan). It is our favorite appetizer. Try it and you will be coming back!
We also love the Lamb Bhuna and the Caulifflower Masala.
Whether it’s a cold snowy night, or a hot summer evening, the Taj Mahal lures us back.

Went to the Taj Mahal for our anniversary dinner, after considering other Indian options. Service was quick and attentive, food was delicious, especially the meat dishes - so tender. Will be back soon for more.

We stumbled into Taj Mahal, while looking for a place to eat on a busy Saturday, Aren’t we glad! What a great experience we had. The food was great and the service was impeccable. This is one of the best Indian Restaurants in Ottawa. Why did I rate this restaurant so high? The answer is the quality of the meat(s). Almost every Indian restaurant we have been to, served us beef Chicken or lamb that was badly trimmed and full of tendons, skin or fat... For 2 decades it was my issue with Indian restaurants as most serve poorly trimmed pieces and hope that diners (loose the quality in the sauce) as I was told candidly by one cook a while ago. At Taj Mahal, we enjoyed the amazing sauces and the quality meats. We were a group of 10 and no one ordered the same dish. This gave us a chance to sample 10 different tastes. That was a treat! We will be back.

This small restaurant on Bank Street is worth every penny. My family loved it. We live in Ottawa, which has a lot of restaurants, but this one is the best! The service is excellent and the food is delicious. We love the butter chicken and the lamb pasandra. The back of the restaurant features a plexiglass observer window where our kids love to watch the chef make naan bread in the traditional way. Don't miss the chance to eat here.
