Taj first opened its doors to the people of Cambridge in 1986. The moment you walk into the Taj you get the feeling you are entering a business crafted with love, care and passion. The restaurant has built up an enviable reputation and a loyal fan base for both the quality of its food and its friendly service. Customers are welcomed with enthusiasm and made to feel like they are part of the family.
Taj was ranked as the number 1 restaurant in Cambridge and holds onto the position of the best Indian restaurant in Cambridge on TripAdvisor in 2019. The restaurant has also been shortlisted for Awards on the national stage and won the Takeaway of the Year Awards at the Cambridge News Food & Drink Awards 2018.
Brothers Syed & Julal manage the front and back of house respectively. The British born Bangladeshi boys are an amalgamation of the two rich and influential cultures they grew up with. The menu they have created is a true and honest reflection of their upbringing and personalities. You will find authentic Bangladeshi dishes, good old British curries as well as fusion dishes with Indian, British & even Chinese twists.
Even though I booked. Poor greeting, they wanted to seat me where people collected the take aways. On asking to move they sat me next to a curtain next to the kitchen. Bare table, no table cloth sat for 10 mins till I got a waiter. Poor starters , poor tasteless main, naan thrown into a what looked like a cutlery holder hanging over the side. No social distancing between tables customers walking about no masks. Worst experience of any meal out and £32 wasted. Does not in any way relate to the trip advisor reviews!! Craig 07862997444
A superb place, friendly staff with a fantastic menu of fresh food with a twist of unexpected..go prepared to be surprised !!
When we arrived we were seated at the front and I mentioned in passing I thought we were going to sit in the middle. It absolutely wasn't a problem and in fact, we enjoyed the space at the front! We were incredibly surprised to be given onion bhajis on the house to make up for this. Totally unexpected and such a lovely thing to do. As ever, wonderful service, amazing food and we ways just feel part of the family. Definitely Recommended and deservedly always busy 😊
Loved going to the restaurant after months of ordering delivery! Discovered some lovely new flavours!! Taj always gives me an excellent dining experience...love it!!
The Taj is my favourite restaurant. Syed is the warmest host and the food is excellent. If you are undecided about trying it, just go. You will not be disappointed.
Excellent food and service. The curries are very tasty and have lots of flavour. The best curry we have found in Cambridge. If you want to try something tasty I highly recommend the Chicken Tikka Burger. I have been going here for almost 3 years and never had a bad meal or service!! The staff is very friendly and I would highly recommend.
Fantastic fusion of Indian and British food along with traditional dishes.
Loved it! Great service and the food was delicious...will definitely be going back soon!😊 Thank you!
Amazing food.. amazing people..
Great selection incl for children - very friendly service. Best curry in Cambridge.
Fantastic food with great service. Very nice family business, we will be back
As soon as you walk in the restaurant the whole experience is second to none
Delicious Indian meal. Great service. Good atmosphere even in these COVID times. Only complaint was that meal came slowly on account of all the takeaways going out the door. Understand the takeaways have kept them afloat during these difficult times though.
Great food, lovely service, good value for money. We’ll be back.
My husband and I had an amazing time at Taj’s. We were particularly impressed with the hospitality and attention to personal details such as the fact that it was my husband’s birthday meal out. The food was a very high standard and we were impressed with the range of exciting dishes!
We regard our visits to you as real treats and we certainly miss you if you are not allowed to open. It's always like being among old friends. We look forward to seeing you again, soon.
Another amazing night at the Taj. I’ve been a regular for 12 years & always have a great time. Syed & the rest of the Taj family take great care over every customer & every dish. I highly recommend this restaurant for all things food.
Had an excellent curry the night before lockdown began, and the staff were all very attentive and pleasant. They even threw in some complimentary bhajis, which we were really impressed by considering the financial strains that restrictions will be putting on the restaurant. If you're a fan of hot curries, Taj is definitely a must-visit!
Another fantastic meal with the most welcoming team. Highly recommended - sensational food that is addictive!
I had a great time here! My friends and I really enjoyed the food and the service. We are always given the best service with friendly, lovely waiters/waitresses. The boss is so lovely and always makes our time there even better. Highly recommend it
Delicious food as always and great service
Great to be back eating at the Taj. We have been coming here for many years and always have a warm welcome and delicious food. Thank you
An absolutely brilliant restaurant. Food, service and welcome are all exceptional. Love going here.
The food here is exceptional and the staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. Probably the best Indian I’ve been to and I’ve been to many around the country. Thank you and will be back next time in Cambridge.
Great tasting food that has that authentic taste. Starters are particularly good. The attention to detail makes them special. The food tastes homemade and that is unique to only a few curry houses and this is one of them. Will always dine here.
