You can't tell from the outside of this small restaurant that it is likely the best Indian restaurant around. The husband and wife owners are extremely caring and personable. My wife and I have dined in some of the finest Indian restaurants across Canada, and I would rate dishes at the Taj as good as or better than any of... More

This is probably my favourite Indian food place in Ottawa. The owners are always present and genuinely care about their customers and the experience. I always get the same thing every time (vegetable korma and garlic naan because I love it so much) but their lamb and chicken is also really good! It's quiet, and because of the movie theatre...

We were hoping for a buffet on Saturday but the buffets are at lunch time only during the week. We stayed for alacart and the waiter helped us with some suggestions for our first time. Butter chicken and rice with bread. We will definitely be back to try the lunch buffet for the selection of items to try.

First time there and quit pleasantly surprised by it. It is a very small place, but very cozy and welcoming. Loved listening to the Indian music. The food was great, the service was impecable. The server was very good in helping us out on what to order. We will definitely will be going back.

We ordered takeout for dinner. When the food arrived, we were surprised how little of it there was for the cost we paid. We quickly realized that they had forgotten to include the vegetable curry we had ordered. Before calling back, we even added up the cost of the dishes they had delivered to see if the vegetable curry simply... More

Hidden in a little corner on Carling ave. is a couple of Indian chefs, busy making fresh and savory plates. We went there for lunch, and it was clear to us that their focus was on quality and not quantity, as their buffet had limited choices but simply SUPERB in terms of quality, freshness and taste. Price for lunch was... More

Being from India, I used to miss the authentic taste that a local Indian restaurant would have. But here, I got that taste and enjoyed it to the fullest. I am a very picky vegetarian with restrictions such as I can't eat onion or garlic. But they were happy to customize their recipe for me whereas my wife who has... More
