About Taj

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.

Due to the current situation we had our first ever takeaway from Taj. The food was just as brilliant as when served in restaurant. No drop in quality whatsoever. Always guaranteed a great meal so hopefully they don't struggle during this time! Thanks to all at Taj

Couldn’t have been more friendly welcoming and helpful - difficult time for all at the moment - support your local businesses however you can. They were doing takeaway service as well - excellent will definitely go back

This is a great Indian-food restaurant: very friendly staff, good honest food and an easy-going atmosphere. We've been coming for years - and always recommend the Taj to friends and neighbours. Very proud to support this local restaurant.

Very enjoyable restaurant with an imaginative menu. Bringing your own wine keeps cost down but the is a 12.5% service charge added to the bill.

We absolutely love the food, service and atmosphere at Taj. All of the staff are helpful, polite and genuine - making an effort to get to know their customers that regularly visit.The food is delicious and the BYOB policy is convenient and ensures that the meal is always great value for money! It's totally different to any other 'Indian' restaurant in the area. If you haven't been before, you must go!

We usually are very happy with the restaurant and the excellent and personalized service we always get. We also got appetizers on the house, but it was not clear that it was on the house which caused confusion with the main order of one of the group and left her upset. There was a lack of communication and misunderstanding.

Underwhelming. High standard of food – important – but a pretence of an experience that is not delivered on at all. Chairs too low, tables too high, some too close to the toilets, some in the thoroughfare, rules about when you can order what, staff too busy to listen, offer tap water, or take a payment, and the menus felt just a bit sticky. Might come back for a takeaway, but would never suggest sitting in for date night.

Dear Syed, Julal, and staff of the Taj, thank you for such an excellent evening meal yesterday evening. We were very impressed, and I have placed a similarly appreciative 5 **** review on TripAdvisor. I am not surprised at the awards you have won, or that your restaurant is so busy and popular. I really look forward to visiting again soon. Our warmest compliments to you all. I know it is very hard work to achieve such high standard. A lovely, pleasantly atmospheric restaurant, very kind and welcoming people, and of course, fantastic food - very varied and interesting menu too.

Very friendly. Interesting dishes to choose from. Excellent food. Be aware that a service charge is added automatically as it would be easy to double tip
