These guys are scammers! If I could give them a 0, I would.
Went there with an Entertainment Gold card and gave it to them. They tried to wriggle out of it – I have never had this issue at any other place before.
First, they tried to tell me that the discount was only valid for 2 meals or more. I showed them a copy of the actual book (which stated that the voucher was applicable for 1 person with 1 meal). They then said that the meal needed to cost more than $30 (my bill was around $25). When I stated that this wasn’t mentioned anywhere, they then turned it around and said that the maximum discount was 30% but it was pro-rata (so, the lesser the bill, the lesser the discount).
Finally, they change it again and stated that the discount would be $25 off if I buy a meal worth $50.
I was shell-shocked at their blatant lies and how desperate they were to wriggle out of this. If they do not want to give the discount, that’s fine with me, but DO NOT get into the entertainment book.
For me, the whole point of the book was to try out new places (I have never been here before), see whether the service/food was good and then, go back again regularly.
But, this is outrageous – I definitely wouldn’t go back again. I am put off these guys and will let the Entertainment guys know as well.

Went with a group for a last minute meal at the taj. Food was good. Byo is always good. Hardly anyone there on a Saturday night which is never a good sign. Only complaint and the reason for the low score is due to the bill settlement. The wait staff themselves were patient and friendly enough.

Had DineIn twice before. Last night I had 4 takeaways from Groupy Vouhure. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Lamb was very tender and spices were perfect up to standards. We will be back with another groupy vouchers.

Twice I bought takeaways. The first time, after waiting 20 minutes, when I went to the counter to get my food, they realized my order was given to somebody else, so more waiting. The second time, when I arrived home I found out they gave me something I didn’t order. The food is average, there are better Indian places around the city and their portions are STINGY!I got three pieces of paneer the size of half my pinky and that was it. Will never come back and wouldn’t recommend it.

I’ve eaten here twice and both were very different experiences…
The first time my partner and I arrived without a reservation at about 9pm on a wednesday night, the place was absolutely deserted which we thought was a bit of a bad omen but we thought we’d give it a go… suprisingly, it was amazing! the curry was absolutely delicious, creamy and rich and not a bad price either. the service was good. we left feeling pretty happy.
The second time we got a takeaway and it was AWFUL. ergh, i ate too bites and threw the rest out. it didn’t even taste like curry it was so bizarre.
I think an important part of restaurant success is having consistency. You need to know that you are going to enjoy your meal, any time, every time.
I’d be prepared to give courtney taj the benefit of doubt because the first meal was so good, but i’d have to go again to make a complete conclusion.
Try it for yourself, you might have the best curry like we did.
