After reading reviews on trip advisor and seeing that this was the highest rated Indian restaurant in Cambridge, my partner and I were very keen to try out Taj Tandoori. We ordered butter chicken and paneer curries for ourselves. The paneer was heavily sweetened with...More

A fantastic variety of brilliant, tasty dishes. The service was attentive and polite. The restaurant was warm and tastefully decorated, if a little plain, but the food, service and price more than make up for that.

We have visited previously but it is overdue for me to praise the excellent food and friendly service.Good quality and reasonably priced. There is a lot of choice in Cambridge however the Taj is for me the best I have experienced.Booking essential,need I say more?

This place is obviously very popular, they had to turn away people without a booking. They were very helpful with my wife as she finds it difficult to order in places that specialise in spicy food, but as the waiter said there are lots of...More

After a mishap with our booking (bad communication between friends) the staff made every effort to accommodate us which was really appreciated. The food was excellent. This is my 4th visit in as many months and I’ve not been disappointed on any occasion. Very friendly...More

Food was superb! Good service! The atmosphere was nice and well ventilated. I think every penney you spend here is worth it.

We are blessed - or maybe that should be "cursed" - with dozens of Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi restaurants, but many are not really very good. This is one of the best of them: fresh, interesting food with decent service.

We always seem to stick to the same Indian restaurant for takeaways and have paid the price for trying elsewhere with bad food/service. After reading some of the review we though we give these guys a try and I am glad we did. Excellent service...More

Family midweek outing and enjoyed this whole-heartedly. Albeit we had to wait for the food, it was well worth it. Husband is difficult to impress in terms of food and he said this was one of the best curries he had ever had.

We don't sell alcohol only soft drinks, but you can bring in your own beer or wine. We charge a corkage of £1 per head for large parties otherwise it is free to do this.

Description
Since its inception in 1986, Taj Tandoori has been providing locals, students and visitors of the Cherry Hinton road area of Cambridge, with the exotic culinary delights that can only be found from the rich heritage of the Indian sub continent. Our goal is to put our customer first whether it is dining in at the restaurant, ordering a takeout meal or catering for that ever special event. Our menu offers a wide range of both traditional and contemporary dishes influenced by the many different regions of South Asia in striking yet informal surroundings. The intense flavours and pungent aromas that come from our dishes are created from the use of only the freshest of ingredients. With an abundant choice of foods ranging from street food favourites, tandoori grills and many regional curries, the only problem you will encounter is what to choose! We are one of the very few if not only restaurant in Cambridge that has a BYO alcohol policy. This gives you the freedom to choose which wine or beer to bring to your meal and also saves you from paying high restaurant prices for your alcohol! We also provide for in-house parties, banquets, buffets, weddings and various other outdoor catering events in the UK.
