This spot is one we have gone to several times in the past but not for the last year. This time we found the food to be more bland. The butter chicken was overcooked and lacked flavour, the Lamb Biriyani was one of the worst...we had - dry and lacked flavour as well - nowhere near what it was a year ago. Given the "average" quality of the food, the prices were definitely too high. I compare this to our other two favorite Indian places, and on average their main dishes were $3-5 higher! Try Haldi on Preston or Aahar in Alta Vista or Churchill. Both are less expensive and much better.More

Very disappointing dinner experience, first time visiting in a few years. Overall restaurant looked unclean , especially the floors. The food tasted good, except the server didn’t think they had any chicken tandoori, but they did. The basmati rice was dry and no added taste....The serving size of dishes were decent , but prices per dish are higher than other local Indian restaurants. We had to ask for knives . The server placed two at one setting, vs one at each place setting. Asked for my water glass to be refilled, which the server did, but she never glanced at my partner’s glass to see if it needed topping up. Our table was next to the door, which was a busy corner with the many delivery folks standing , waiting for orders. Felt like the server was rushing us out of the place. Won’t return.More

We decided to try Taj because they have two unusual items on the menu: Dhansakh, a Parsi Sunday afternoon standard at our house and Bombay potatoes. Both were very good with the meat in the former being very tender. Accompanied by fluffy naan, it was...an excellent meal.More

I had done my research. This was a special event and I was prepared to pay for one. Due to the coming and going of all the food delivery drivers, as well as the high level of lighting, this feels like a cafeteria, not a...place for fine dining. Service was basic, but water was refilled, which is always appreciated. Portions were generous, but the leftovers will not be eaten. The butter chicken felt thrown together. The chicken was cooked but did not feel like it had spent any time in the sauce. The vegetable curry felt overcooked. Would not recommend.More

Because of the pandemic our first meal from the Taj was delivered. The delivery was right in time, and the food still piping hot. Absolutely delicious, and the portions were generous enough for a second meal (or maybe I over-ordered.) We had ordered either "mild"...or "medium" for spiciness and were very pleased with the results. The vindaloo was maybe a bit less spicy than expected, but the butter chicken, shrimp and mulligatawny soup were right on! Even the steamed rice was superlative. I have never seen such long grains. We will become regulars here! I would highly recommend the Taj.More

We had a delicious meal through delivery from Taj tonight. We ordered the butter chicken; mattar paneer and saag beef plus a couple of sides. Absolutely everything was fresh and delicious and not oily. We just moved to the neighbourhood and are delighted to find...a great small business to support.More

This is a very small restaurant in Nepean, Ottawa. It takes around 40 diners by my reckoning, so booking is recommended. The food was excellent and if I lived over there I would be one of their regular customers.

The buttered chicken, with basmati rice as well the chickenTiki and vegetable samosas as an entree with mint...sauce as well another sauce so different yet wonderful. I guess you can tell it was a wonderful experience,BabliSharma went above and beyond.

Love love love the butter chicken here. I have tried about 6 Indian restaurants in the city and this has the butter chicken I like the most., All white meat super creamy sauce. I do find it to be some of the most expensive Indian...food in the city though and the service is ok.More

It was the worst experience ever. The food is not at all good and the waitress is extremely rude. The bhajji which we ordered was not even cooked properly.I would not recommend it to anyone.

Butter chicken was some of the best I’ve had! And naan bread was definitely homemade way better than anything you’d by in a store! Went for lunch with my husband and everything we had was yummy. Great atmosphere for families too. Buffet style.

This restaurant recommend by a friend. It's family owned and operated. The butter chicken was very good. The meat Biryani was not good. It tasted as if the meat cooked by itself (boiled)then mixed with rice and spices. I didn't like it. The Indian chai...(tea) was amazing. Price was a bit pricy for the quantity of the food.More
