Portions are small, a la carte everything, very expensive. It's as if they are exploiting those who do not have the opportunity to go to the GTA to experience not only authentic, excellent quality but far more reasonably priced Indian food. Although I can now...More

I have eaten at Tara's many times as it was just a block away from my work prior to my retirement. The food is excellent as is the service. Highly recommend this restaurant.

All you look for in an Indian buffet is on this small lunch hot bar. Missing is Gulab Jamun desert. Very reasonable price and good service.

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...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...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.

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...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....More
