It says authentic Indian food and it surely is. I am a local hobartian and have traveled in India, and this is one of the best Indian restaurants in Hobart because it reminds me of the home-style local Indian food I had when traveling in India. I'm always impressed every time I have a meal in this restaurant.

Indian is my favourite cuisine (and I eat out a lot!) I have spent 6 months in India and consider myself to have a pretty good idea of what is what. This is hands down the best Indian restaurant I have eaten in. Better than anywhere in all the places I have tried in Sydney. Authentic and locally owned- I... More

Stunningly great authentic Indian flavours. We had the Maharaja platter with five sampling dishes. It was enough for two ordinary appetites. We came back a couple of days later and ordered the same again. It's a a small family run restaurant. Go there for flavour, not for frills.

Just after New Year and on arrival Taj Palace was busy and it was only 7pm. Harry was short of a waitress and under pressure but he coped well indeed. In almost 8 years of eating at Taj Palace this was the first time we gave seen Harry running. We ordered our wine and chatted a while before ordering our... More

The only Indian restaurant we could find open for a take away on Boxing Day. I ordered the Butter Chicken and my wife had the Chicken Korma. I have to say it was the best butter chicken I have ever tasted, plenty of meat in delicious sauce unlike some places where you get a few token bits of chicken in... More

We have just enjoyed a fantastic Indian meal at Taj Palace accompanied by great, genuinely caring service and a vibrant, busy atmosphere. We were lucky to arrive without a reservation and secure a table as 20-minutes later, every table was full! The food was excellent and felt quite authentic. We would definitely come here again and would recommend to our... More

Ordered the chicken briyani to takeaway. Portion was generous. Lots of chunks of well marinated chicken. Very yummy. Was longing for nice nasi briyani this whole holiday to Melbourne and Tasmania. Glad to have tried the briyani here.

Went here the other day and the service was pathetic they had no people skills at all but stayed to see how it was, Turns out the butter chicken (mild) was sticky smelly and tasted rancid, The pakora was just dough filled with potato and it wasn't even cooked.... the Naan bread was undercooked as f$&k and was inedible, Never...

This place has been consistently disappointing lately and we have finally run out of patience with it. The food is good, usually, but sometimes it isn't and the service is uniquely bad--not rude, just disorganised and haphazard. Because they blatantly prioritise take away orders you can be waiting a really long time for your food to turn up, even when... More
