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.

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.

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...More
