Another outstanding meal. A real pleasure celebrating our 41st anniversary with the pleasant and attentive staff. When we had finished our meal the staff presented us with a complimentary sweet dish as an anniversary treat. The food and service is always first class.

Its taken a while for me to post this review as I was waiting on the restaurant to resolve my complaint. Back in March we dined during the Fringe having made a booking on a cool Sunday evening. First issue is that they tried to...place us outside when we had booked for inside. I had to stand my ground as we weren't dressed for the cool evening. Food and table service was satisfactory but the issue came at the end when paying the bill. I went to use my Entertainment Book Card but the manageress stated they were not accepting during Fringe. This was in clear breach of the rules of use which I pointed out but she refused to budge so I either had to walk out without paying and make a scene or pay the full bill, so I did the latter. The next week I followed up with the Entertainment Book Head Office who confirmed the breach of rules and I advised the Taj Tandoor of the same. They said it was a misunderstanding which frankly I don't believe as I have had similar issues with this restaurant previously in relation to bills. They did offer to provide a refund but then subsequently ignored my follow up emails. Given CV-19 issues then took over I decided not to pursue further, it was more the principal rather than the money. Bottom line is that we will never visit this place again and urge others to stand their ground when they are entitled to use the Entertainment Book.More

It’s so hard to go out for dinner with a 2 year old. This amazing place went over and above to accommodate, including drawing a colouring page as their printer stopped working. Then the food happened ... we ordered a butter chicken and rogan josh...plus some nan. So happy !! This food was amazing !! Again, I can’t commend the lovely lady who took care of our us and our babe, she made us feel so welcomed and comfortable. Highly recommend !More

We visited during restricted dining times but the full menu was available. What was of most interest were the dishes that aren’t typically on an Indian restaurant menu; offering a more authentic dining experience. Pickled lamb starter was exceptional , a really flavoursome dish that...was new to us. The curries were equally deep in flavour and the meat tender and juicy. This restaurant prides itself on dishes that are influenced by true Indian cuisine and does not ‘dumb down’ dishes to appeal to the Australian palate. A truly genuine and enjoyable dining experience. ... and a good wine list too!More

The food was really lovely, a good range to choose from and generally reasonably priced. Staff were friendly, attentive and while the restaurant was busy tables seemed to be reasonably spaced. Why not five starts? it's noisy, very difficult to have a conversation. And sparkling...water: $8/bottle, so overpriced for the refillable tap purezza sparkling that seems to be popular now. Other places ask X$ for the first one an inexpensive refills. If I'd known I would've stuck with tap, rather than pay $16.More

This is one of the largest "Fringe" menus I have seen. If you can't find something on this menu then you are not trying. We sat down at about 8:30 pm at one of the tables on the street. The staff didn't notice us for...a while but once we had their attention we had it all night. They were run off their feet on this Friday night but were polite, friendly and happy to see people. The food actually came in quick time and it was delicious. I expected it to be slightly slapdash as most people were in a hurry but the meals were well presented and the flavours and freshness fabulous.More

It was somewhat of a spontaneous decision for us to visit this restaurant with friends, and we are glad that we did. The atmosphere is somewhat casual, although many inside tables (if not all) were elegantly dressed in white table cloth, we sat outside. Lots...of tandoor food variety and many other specialty dishes as well as the customary curries. The menu is probably larger than most Indian restaurants and pricing range from high teens to mid twenties. Overall a good experience, although their drink service is slow, so be sure to order well in advance, otherwise you may be thirsty.More

Visited Taj Tandoor on a Friday night and although it was busy, I took that as a good sign. Well that was the only good thing about the visit! Took over 30 minutes to get somebody to take our order and then the wait and...confusion followed. Being one of 5 tables in the back corner, we were not on our own! Finally got one of our mains after an hour and a quarter and ended the night giving up on the other half after multiple attempts at enquiring about it. Sadly the other tables were all in the same boat with confusion reigning.More
