We had heard that this Restaurant was one of the best in Owen Sound and possibly in Grey/Bruce Counties. We had been told that the food was amazing and that the takeout was certainly worth the drive because the dishes are relative masterpieces.

Now, we expected great food because locals obviously had chosen this as a city favorite, but we where pleasantly surprised by the cost and the service!

Now, it is on main street, so its a great place to have lunch when visiting some of the stores downtown. We had been Shopping, and we wanted something different then what the coffee houses offer, so we made our way over to the Taj.

We where greeted by the delicate smells of Indian spices in the air, and a warm smile from the owner "Miah," who obviously knew what he was doing!

I had to try the lunch special and I spotted that Butter Chicken was on the menu. Now, i have to add that I love this dish, and I have even bought the spices and I have made it myself before, but I was thrilled at what I received!

I was handed a sensational Butter Chicken, perfect rice to mix with the creamy sauce, a very tasty Samosa, and some Nan bread that was recently heated on a grill, or in an oven.

I loved it!

My girlfriend is a vegetarian, and she went for the vegetable curry, rice, and it also came with a samosa, and Nan bread. Now, she is very particular, and has been a vegetarian for over 17 years, so she knows her veggie cuisine. The verdict?............Awesome! Smiles, cheek to cheek, and a promise to return!

I fully recommend the Taj Indian Restaurant, and will return again.

Since opening earlier in 2012, have visited the Taj several times (never often enough!) and love the service, value and of course the food.
My favourites on the menu are the Baigan Bhartha and Pakora. Also really like Channa, Korma, samosa's...well pretty much everything on the menu.
Very very happy to have the Taj in Owen Sound !!!

We’ve eaten here on several occasions and frequently drive 45 minutes just to get take-out. The food is incredible, the service is friendly and helpful; we’ve never been disappointed. The chicken korma and the vindaloo are two of our favourites. I highly recommend the Taj to anybody.

Yesterday my husband and I found this terrific spot while doing errands in Owen Sound.
We both LOVE Indian cuisine. Since leaving Montreal last year, we've really missed our Indian food fixes so we are thrilled that the Taj is now on the Bruce Peninsula.
I had the Daal Tarka and Doug had the lunch special - Chicken Korma. Our meals were awesome. We also ordered the Garlic Chilli Chicken to take away for later.

In a word, the three dishes we had were "Yum". Maya, the Owner and Chef, does a great job with the food, making his patrons feel welcome, and the prices are reasonable.

We are both so excited that the Taj is now in town and will be recommending to our friends and guests! If you're in the area, do visit them!

Check this place out today!

My wife and I ate dinner here.
The selection is great and the owner Miah is very friendly and personable.
I had lamb vindaloo which was excellent as was my nan bread with coconut and spices. My wife had a vegetable korma dish which was just okay - we'll skip that one next time. Her Chicken Biriyani was perfect. Atmosphere is funky Indian (not fancy at all - low budget). Not sure if they have a real tandoori oven.
