I frequent Tandoori's quite often and love many of their dishes. The spices and style of food is a refreshing change to mexican, italian, seafood places that are all over the place. The staff is extremely helpful in selecting from the menu if you have never been to an Indian restaurant before. I highly recommend this place!

Previously to visiting tandoori, I was not a fan of Indian food. We have eaten there twice in the last 2 months. I thought the quality and taste were excellent, as was the service. All of the servers were courteous, patient and not pushy at all. The highlight was the dessert, Golub Jamba. It was to die for. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Prices were fair as well.

Previously to eating at Tandooris I had only eaten Indian food on one or two occasions, so I can't comment as well on the food compared to other Indian cooking. I would say that after eating there I definitely would eat Indian food again, and that as far as food in general it was excellent and worth the price. You get to pick how spicy you want it and the tandoori chicken has a delicious charcoal flavor I found tasty. I took my wife there as a date and she and I both especially liked the curry chicken in a tomato sauce we got - the name escapes me -with rice. The appetizers are delicious and if you aren't used to Indian food- unique. We opted to get the Afgan platter , the chicken curry and one of the combination platters and then shared to get a wide variety of dishes. I think my pallet is a little more accustomed to the curry now. lol. The biggest thing I noticed was the amazing customer service. It made you feel as though you were a king. And guys, its a great place to take your wife, as the waiters were extremely courteous and will treat her with Indian style chivalry. My wife felt very special afterward - especially when they brought the rose out at the end of the meal and said , ""a beautiful rose for a very beautiful lady."" If you are looking for a place that is unique, has excellent customer service and are hoping to leave the impression with your girl that she is worth it definitely go here . It wasn't cheap but it was worth every dollar spent.

This was our first visit to Tandoori. The atmosphere and the food was mediocre. The curry was cold and watery.
The one redeeming quality: the bread was hot, crispy, and tasty.
The waiter, a non-Indian, who fit the sterotype of an obnoxious highschool jock, had a chip on his shoulder for some reason and served us plenty of thinly concealed disdain and attitude.
Well, that left plenty of sour taste in our mouths. We tipped a normal amount, but I wonder if we should have not tipped at all.
We won't go back there again, even if we get a different waiter. We don't need to pay to be treated like that.

This is another place I checked out while travelling - and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Indian food and avoids chain dining. They start you off with a free ""sample-sized"" appetizer - a nice touch. The food is good, although I think the portions are relatively small for the price. If you're dining family style, I'd recommend at least one dish per diner - unless you are light eaters. You might want to throw in an appetizer or two to share as well. A funny touch is the rose they present to each woman at the end of the meal.

I love Tandoori's lunch buffets. you get to taste a little bit of everything for much less than regular dining prices. The first time we went it cost almost $50 for a garlic nan(which is like a bread), a chicken fried rice, a chicken curry and a couple of beers. The advantage is that you can get the dishes cooked to your specification of spiciness, but if you go to the lunch buffet you can easily ask for a little dish of hot sauce to add to your food and it's the bomb. I think weekend lunch buffets are $12-$15 but if you go during the weekdays it's only $8.98 for the exact same items, and you even get free nan. All in all, the food there is awesome and the service is excellent, the staff are extremely friendly and attentive. I would definitely suggest trying the lunch buffet for first timers and once you figure out what kind of dishes you like then go for regular dining, the ladies get a fresh rose after dinner!
