Whilst enjoying a mini holiday to Launceston, we ventured to the AAJ Restaurant one of the evenings with our daughter and son-in-law on their recommendation. Turned out to be a most enjoyable visit. Indian food would certainly not be the primary go to food for my wife and I, but that said we thought the food at AAJ to be... More

Well, I came here on Saturday, I had butter chicken and chicken vindaloo, food was okay. Price and quantity of food were good depending on person capacity. I loved the mango lassi a lot. Overall, the service was excellent and done by beautiful ladies. It was pleasurable. I would definitely recommend it to everyone!!

Wasn't the worst experience we have had...but woman who sat us down couldn't crack a smile, nor make us feel welcome. Food was OK...I personally think the Indian place at mortys complex is tastier and better on the pocket!!!

When you walk in you are hit with fresh aroma. The food is flavoursome. The venue is roomy and classy. This place is fantastic value and the head chef came out personally to meet us and from what my friends tell me, who told me to go here, is very experienced. Thanks Karan! I will be back again.

Down from Sydney on holiday looking for some Indian takeaway, and this really fit the bill. We have had plenty of great indian in our time, but this was right up there. Meat samosas you dont see in many indians, great tandoori lamb chops with mint yoghurt, and the garlic naan and beef madras were perfect.

We had a mid-week booking Christmas function for a group of 10 at AAJ India. We all had the non-vegetarian banquet. The entrée was Lamb Seekh Kebak and Chicken Tikka. Both of which were quite nice. The main consisted of Butter chicken, lamb Rogan Josh, beef vindaloo and a mixed vegetable curry. I was disappointed in three of these dishes.... More

While in launceston and craving a good old curry I began searching for somewhere to go, shockingly most places are closed by 9pm so we ended up quickly rushing to AAJ as they was still open till 9.30pm. On the heart of the city centre, easy to walk to! Staff were really friendly on arrival even though they was near... More
