Le Taj Review

The lights are dim and the ambiance is warm at Le Taj. This restaurant carries a piece of Montreal's history with its ornate and detailed three-panel mud wall originally made for India's pavillion at Expo '67. The focus here is northern Indian cuisine, which is less spicy and more delicate than that of the south. The Tandoor clay ovens seal in the delicious flavors and keep fish and meat moist. Thalis—full meal platters with a variety of different dishes—are a good way to go if you want to sample different things. Vegetarians are especially happy here, although even meat eaters love the saag paneer (Indian white cheese with spinach). The lunch buffet is C$16 and the nightly "Indian feast" is C$36.

    Le Taj Review

    Been to 40 countries. I eat local food wherever I go. Vinod Kapoor runs Le Taj, he is always there, a real gentleman. The place is spotless, the food is fresh, plentiful, tasty "Northern Style". The waiters are alert, friendly, helpful and always polite. I eat there at least 2 x a month, never had better Indian food of this style anywhere. I was in Egypt 3 years ago, would not dare eat anything outside a hotel, but I enjoy Mid-East restaurants here and elsewhere if they are clean. I have no other interest in le Taj, except to enjoy the food and the service.

    the worst restaurent

    le taj is the worst restaurent i ever went to in the whole world. i went to its lunch buffet that costed 15 dollars with taxes, the buffet was consistant of only tandori chicken, medium quality and lente. the fruit was only grapes of very low quality. the service is zero, no one if bringing you water and no one is removing empty dished. really i felt very bad after visiting that bad place. i will never go there again.

    Best naan in town

    I am a big Indian food lover and Le Taj Restaurant was the next restaurant on my list. Of all the places I have been to, I truly believe that you cannot find such deliciously handmade naan anywhere else in Montreal. If you already enjoy regular naan, wait until you try out the garlic naan: it is simply out of this world! Whatever the secret ingredient is, who needs to know when you get a generous portion of fluffy, golden, straight out the oven naan. Even after a while, the naan stays crisp in your plate and doesn’t become soggy or oily. It accompanies everything wonderfully.
