We have not had a chance to eat here for some time although we have often spoken about returning. Tonight we found some time and were able to find a parking spot and get in. We had another wonderful meal. The spices... the flavour, the very special tastes! This is one of a few special and favorite places for us... More

I ordered food through Uber Eats tonight from Taj Mahal in the Glebe where I also reside. The driver brought out a leaking bag of mess. I looked inside and saw all 3 containers lying on their sides. The hot food was spilling out and I looked at the driver. Shawn the driver said to call the restaurant acknowledging the... More

We tried this new Indian restaurant and did not find our standard dishes on the menu, however, the cauliflowers masala that I ordered was absolutely delicious! The non-bread was not the best I've had but it was tasty.

Restaurant was warm and cozy on a cold winter's night. Even though it was a Friday evening and the restaurant was quite full already and we didn't have a reservation, we were seated promptly. The service was also prompt, helpful and courteous, despite the fact the servers were busy. The restaurant has been around for a long time in the... More

Definitely loved the ambience. It's like stepping in Taj Mahal, India. Papadum starter was a surprise. Each dish comes in a small metal bowl with naan at an extra cost. Rice is not listed on the menu but you can still order it. Portions of the rice is huge. Two orders of rice fed three of us and still have... More

My mom was in a nearby care facility and decided that she wanted butter chicken for lunch so off I went in search of an Indian restaurant take out. Service was prompt and the food was good. Mom was kind enough to share some with me :)

After reading some negative reviews I got quite worried that this elegant little Indian restaurant might have fallen off it's game. There are other Indian Restaurants in the Glebe, but, I like this one for the décor. But, I had friends in town and they wanted Indian food, so I gave our local favourite a try. We had a good...

Ugh!!! What a horrible restaurant. Nothing India about it. We visited Ottawa/Montreal/Quebec city and tried several restaurants including Indian food. But this place? I feel nauseating even thinking about it. Ordered chicken biryani and what we got was rice and chicken sautéed on lots of ghee topped with some raisins.we were furious and walked out of the restaurant just paying... More

Went in on a quiet week night looking to have a bowel of soul and salads. We were told we couldn't just order this. We got up and left. They were rude in their approach and offered no discussion. Needless to say we won't go back. Went next door to the The Rowan and they were extremely happy to see... More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in Ottawa. Good meats and you can choose how spicy food you want. The only drawback is the shortage of parking space.
