The food here is very good and you can't beat the location. It's a nice atmosphere and you can see the bay from most tables. We came here for dinner and I just couldn't get past the prices. You'll pay $20 for a curry dish and then they charge you $5.50 for a bowl of rice. I might try the... More

We recently tried Tara's and were quite impressed. We went during Barrielicious and were rather impressed. I had Mulligatawny (chicken based soup), butter chicken and rice pudding and my boyfriend had the samosas, curry beef and coconut cake, our entrees came with rice and naan bread. The owner came to our table multiple times to see how we were enjoying... More

Excellent restaurant, our go-to Indian food for lunch on the weekend. Great value, and the food is consistently top notch. Dinner is also great, but you'll pay more. Still worth it, though.

I eat here once in a while when I get the urge for Indian food. I stopped going to the buffet as I am far from a lover of green pees and the three times there were almost no dishes without them. Service has always been between poor and mediocre. "I haven't seen you in a long time boss" tends... More

Thought that the food was below average and on the expensive side. I didn't like the owner that took our order. Something not just right with his approach ( kind of slimy). Kept trying to push more dishes on us after we said no a few times. After being fans for a few years, we are unlikely to go back... More

Terrible ambience, just the worst table service which was rushed and rude despite the place being empty. Takeout service is even worse and they shut down when they feel like it and don't tell you they won't be delivering the food you ordered! Arrogant because they were the only Indian restaurant now they are getting killed by Taj down the... More

Went to Tara's on a Saturday night for dinner with my wife. Very disappointed with our experience at Tara's. We would not go again, and would discourage anyone else from going. High price for inauthentic Indian food. Ambiance of the restaurant and service were lacking. We both lived in Brampton for a number of years, and know what Indian food... More

Food and atmosphere is good, a bit cramped but acceptable. Very expensive, we had 2 beers and a half liter of wine 2 rice dishes and 4 curry's total...$ 200.00. Way too much, acceptable food but very costly.
