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.

The food is ok but what really stops me going back is the ridiculous prices. I've tried it out a couple of times and while the food isn't terrible, it doesn't stand out as anything delicious either. I tried to go for a later lunch buffet but it closes late afternoon until dinner time but I've heard that the buffet... More

Great curries and everything you need in an Indian restaurant. No description necessary. Just enjoy the mouth watering korma and jalfrezi.

I love TARA! I don't live in Barrie but have no problem driving 1/2 hour to get to Tara for their wonderful Indian food. Can't say enough about the fantastic flavours or the friendly service.

I've been coming here for over 20 years. If you like spicy, they'll make it sweat-to-your-brow spicy. The lunch buffet has an adequate selection. Chicken Kormo was tasty. Excellent chicken madras.

My wife and I had a wonderful buffet lunch. We enjoyed the selection. There was a good variety of food, My favorite was the tandoori chicken. My wife loved the rice noodle crisps. There was a tasty yogurt to help reduce the heat from the spice. I for one enjoyed the level of spice. [Not for a novice ;) ]... More

Nice place, good food, just pricey. Atmosphere and decor are good also. Try the butter chicken or the Tandoori chicken. Both are great.

I cannot understand why some people enjoy eating here. I used to live in Little India in Toronto and ate authentic Indian cuisine at least twice a week. The dishes at Tara are poorly spiced and are padded out with onions, green pepper and underripe tomato. Those ingredients are not traditionally in some dishes such as vindaloo. The service is...

On a whim, we went to eat something full of spice. (What an understatement!) Our friends whose palates cannot handle "spicy" foods had no problem eating here. Additionally we went for the Dinner for Four with a fixed price menu. Fabulous is not even close to just how delicious it was!! Fabulous setting, attentive service and generally left you happy...
