The lights are dim and the ambience 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 This restaurant carries a piece of Montreal's history with its ornate and detailed three-panel mud wall originally made for India's pavillion at Expo '67.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 all-you-can-eat lunch buffet is C$16 and the nightly "Indian feast" is C$40.
