Having complained about getting a lukewarm takeaway from here, because the delivery driver was new and incompetent, it's only fair to say that when I made the complaint, they were only to eager to apologise, to give us our money back AND to offer a free meal as well. The replacement meal (we chose to have another takeaway) was, of... More

We usually enjoy visiting this relaxed veggie friendly curry house but were disappointed to find it closed for redecoration. Hurry up and reopen soon please!

Don't be put off by the exterior, this place is awesome. You get the most amazing range of curries and all sorts of other exciting dishes at such great value! It's also BYOB with no corkage fee so you instantly save a good third of what it would cost elsewhere. The staff are all lovely and friendly and they never... More

Glad we read the reviews and very glad we accepted the exterior does not represent the interior! Food was amazing and the staff very friendly. The kids are connoisseurs of chicken tikka masal and claim it is the best they have had for some time. I took the waiters recommendation - no idea what it was called but it was... More

Absolutely delicious food and the staff were incredible and so friendly! Came here on Valentine's Day and we didn't make a reservation, they were fully booked and they had done their best to accommodate us despite being fully booked. After the amazing meal, they gave us two roses to say thank you! Amazing service and we'll be back.

Description
Since its inception in 1986, Taj Tandoori has been providing locals, students and visitors of the Cherry Hinton road area of Cambridge, with the exotic culinary delights that can only be found from the rich heritage of the Indian sub continent. Our goal is to put our customer first whether it is dining in at the restaurant, ordering a takeout meal or catering for that ever special event. Our menu offers a wide range of both traditional and contemporary dishes influenced by the many different regions of South Asia in striking yet informal surroundings. The intense flavours and pungent aromas that come from our dishes are created from the use of only the freshest of ingredients. With an abundant choice of foods ranging from street food favourites, tandoori grills and many regional curries, the only problem you will encounter is what to choose! We are one of the very few if not only restaurant in Cambridge that has a BYO alcohol policy. This gives you the freedom to choose which wine or beer to bring to your meal and also saves you from paying high restaurant prices for your alcohol! We also provide for in-house parties, banquets, buffets, weddings and various other outdoor catering events in the UK.
