Down from Sydney on holiday looking for some Indian takeaway, and this really fit the bill. We have had plenty of great indian in our time, but this was right up there. Meat samosas you dont see in many indians, great tandoori lamb chops with mint yoghurt, and the garlic naan and beef madras were perfect.

We had a mid-week booking Christmas function for a group of 10 at AAJ India. We all had the non-vegetarian banquet. The entrée was Lamb Seekh Kebak and Chicken Tikka. Both of which were quite nice. The main consisted of Butter chicken, lamb Rogan Josh, beef vindaloo and a mixed vegetable curry. I was disappointed in three of these dishes.... More

While in launceston and craving a good old curry I began searching for somewhere to go, shockingly most places are closed by 9pm so we ended up quickly rushing to AAJ as they was still open till 9.30pm. On the heart of the city centre, easy to walk to! Staff were really friendly on arrival even though they was near... More

Really nice atmosphere when you walk in.. candles at tables with dimmed lighting. Very calm and relaxing. Food is offered to eat in or take away. Butter chicken was very authentic and sizes of meals are great! Overall we would return. Thanks!

The reviews said this place would be great. They were wrong. The place at the atmosphere of a barn. I ordered take away- they said pick up in 20-25. I was there in 15, and it was ready, getting cold, :(. The butter chicken was ok, but the naam must be avoided. Ok for price, ok for taste. I won't... More
