We had a lovely dinner for two. Lovely atmosphere, great service, and delicious food. We had the tandoori chicken, vegetable curry, basmati, naan, Rhaita and rasmali to finish it off!! Highly recommended!

This place is so charming and their service is always excellent! The menu is diverse and has fantastic vegetarian and non-vegetarian options so you can go with any kind of group. My only complaint is that the samosas are huge and the centres of them are always frozen even though the outside is still super hot. If you skip the... More

We've lived in Ottawa since 2007 and have eaten at the Taj at least 25 times. We've eaten at several other restaurants of course, including those serving Indian cuisine, but the Taj is the best by far. We always bring out-of-town family and friends to share our love for this eatery. My kids have grown up loving it, particularly when... More

Always good food and service in this long-established Ottawa Glebe restaurant. Fine choice of dishes, well served, and lots of help offered with unfamiliar items. Good house wine, quality table linens and attentive service. We are never disappointed, even with large crowds enjoying a pre-game meal, service was smooth and efficient.

Had the chicken tikka masala, prawn bhoona some basmati rice with peas and of course the naan. We passed on the samosas as were too full last visit but they are always very tasty with the sweet sauce. A... More

Usually the lunch buffet is my target, but I have also been here for dinner and eaten a la carte with never a disappointment. Exceptionally friendly people ensure a great experience. Traditional decor and Indian music (in the background) adds to the experience. Some parking in lane way beside bldg.. Reasonable prices, closed between 2:00 and 5:00. Located opposite Kettlemens...

We were welcomed into Taj Mahal without reservations, even though the restaurant was quite busy on a Saturday night. We both had a lamb dish, mine less piquant than my husband's, but complex nonetheless, and richly flavoured. The lamb was fork-tender and succulent, the sauces very different but both delicious. The server knew the menu and the preparations well and... More

Kids wanted to eat Indian, so found this neat little Indian restaurant new Carleton U. Parking is a hassle which I do not like. We were acknowledged within a minute and were seated on a table in a near empty restaurant, but it was just after 6pm. Were given three chutneys and 4 papads. The chutney that was green seemed...

Good quality food. Service good. Overall, good dining experience. And I am from the Brampton area which is an Indian mecca.
