General Info
Tamba is a new style of indian restaurant. It is authentic yet innovative, with a menu that both honors and reinvents tradition. Elegant and comfortable, hip and accessible, tamba is home to a sumptuous decor awash in the hues of india's signature spices. We like to say that if bollywood had a rat pack, this is where they'd hang out. The restaurant has seating for 300. Private parties up to 75 can relax in the hip, vibrant lounge where sophistication meshes seamlessly with style.

great tasty food and fast service‎

I have read the older reviews and I disagree with some of the comments. The day I was there 09/21/2010 the restaurant was busy. people were lining up out side. We were in hurry so we inform the waiter to sit us anywhere, two of us and he gave us a table for six. Thats taking care of a customer.my second day in Vegas 09/21/2010 tried another Indian restaurant after my attempt with another Indian restaurant failed yesterday . This palace is on the Las Vegas Strip across from CV Pharmacy and city Resort Center. The place was very busy. The service was very good, quick, the food was also very good, tasty and the garlic naan tasted like what they should.

DISAPPOINTMENT

Hey, all of you out there if you think you can enjoy a single day at that depressing hotel, well don't have high hopes, I had the terrible experience with bad service, very bad food The food was never fresh in fact re-heated leftovers were served frequently, the meat needs power teeth to deal with. …BETTER PLACE TO EAT IS MOUNT EVEREST INDIAN CUISINE. ITS REALLY THE BEST , ENJOY AS ITS THE BEST AND YOU GET GOOD FOOD.

WOW Clear it UP

Wow, after reading all the reviews it seems that someone is out for a vendetta against this place. The food has always been good for years, probably the busiest indian restaurant iv seen. Please go check it out yourself and see.

Also id like to see who they're being compared against in las vegas.

FIRST EXPERIENCE IS THE LAST EXPERIENCE

Don't get me wrong, I know allyou can eat is not the quality road, but this place takes the cake as far as being sub par goes. It really sucks man. I try not to judge the place on one visit, although my first time to Tamba indian restaurant was a bad experience. I gave them the benefit of the doubt. I can say I will never do back again. I don't know how they can feel its OK to serve food of such poor quality. The managers are so funny.. and the food it smells man. Don't think its fresh. Place looks good with decoration and all but when comes to food part it so so ..worst. I love indian food so i went to eat with my friends and they just treated us as we don't know anything about indian dishes.

Really no proper parking... no good food, its just a worst and worst restaurant. I HOPE NO ONE SHOULD GO THERE MY PERSONAL SUGGESTION.

THE WORST RESTAURANT

I would like to say if you are hungry AND DIYING don't even go to ""TAMBA INDIAN CUISINE. I AND MY FAMILY VISITED THIS RESTAURANT, as we were on a trip staying in nearby hotel. i should say it was the biggest mistake of my life. I ever took this decision to eat in such a worst hotel, such a worst food. i just came out and started vomitting, same time we met one of the old cook who left the job from there.. he told that these people keep food for 3 days and it is not the freshone its all left over.. they serve this in buffed. OH MY we eat the spolied and 3days leftover it was disgusting. how can these people do this... it was really horrible service and the food.

Never going here again

First of all, I hate writing reviews, but i had to write one. After reading some of the other negative reviews, this review will reinforce it a little more.

1. Parking: These guys need to advertise or at least put up signs on parking. Las Vegas BLVD is not the friendliest place especially when you are new in town and on top of that a tourist.

2. Service was generally good, but not the best. I think Sushi restaurants do a far better job that these guys.

3. Food quantity: I had some Nan(?) and some Chicken Makanni (I can't spell the name correctly) and it was more sauce than meat. The rice was decent, especially the flavored one (Starts with a B). Lentils was a little overcooked.

Overall, not too impressed. I was in the mood for some Indian food and I was totally disappointed.

Indian Food Gone Bad

First of all, the location: How the hell does one park in this restaurant. There aren't any parking signs so i had to park somewhere in a casino across the street to get to this place in this blistering Vegas heat.

When I got there, I thought the place would be amazing based on the looks. WRONG..!

The food was horrible, there was more sauce than meat. Granted the only thing they have going is their buffet which is probably the only variety they have. Totally disappointed. My uncles own restaurants around the world and they would laugh at how they operate.

The Mango lassi, which I have had a ton elsewhere, was nowhere close to being good. Customer service sucked as does their ""Tap Water"" glass...!

Bottom line, don't go here if you are from out of town. I am from New York and we have restaurants that are far superior than here. I don't know how the locals can rave about this place.

Not a Good Place to Eat

I was totally unhappy with their service. The decor look decent, but not the best. Parking was ridiculous and I can't believe I had to park a ways in order to get to their place. What disappointed me the most was their timing for lunch where you only have a few hours.

The food on a scale of 1-10 is a 3.
I got an upset stomach after I went to their place and that's the first sign of food that isn't great. I've been to many restaurants around the west coast and these guys are definitely not the best.

Outsiders, Please avoid this place, unless you are up for an upset stomach and hours in the ""Hole"".

Not happy

Did not like at all , the service was very very poor. I will not ever send someone to eat their. Also the Food is not that great , my chicken curry , the chicken was not even cooked.
I also asked for a glass water and it took them like 25mins too get it , and the glasses were dirty and smelly.

I would not tell any of my family or friends there.

They use earlier day party left-over for buffet

IF YOU EVER GO TO LAS VEGAS AND HUNGRY ,STAY HUNGRY BUT DO NOT EVEN THINK OF TRYING THIS RESTRUANT.
FIRST OF ALL THEY WILL CHARGE YOU TOO MUCH BEYOND YOUR EXPECTATIONS ONCE YOU ARE IN THE RESTRUANT.
IMPORTANT
They use earlier day party left-over for buffet, (ONE OF THE COOK TOLD US THIS WHO IS NO MORE WORKING THERE)ONE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS PLATE WE FOUND BEER CAP AND WHEN WE ASKED THE MANAGER SUNNY WAS VERY RUDE,UNFORTUNATELY ALL OF OUR FAMILY MEMBERS WILL THINK THOUSAND TIMES BEFORE GOING TO ANY OF THE INDIAN RESTRUANT

Stay Away!

This restaurant was recommended to me by the concierge at my hotel upon my request for Indian dining. To my dismay, this turned out to be THE WORST indian dining experience I've had. There's more sauce than meat served in the dishes. The curries are extra greasy with low quality fattty meat. Unfortunately, I took some colleagues with me and I was embarrassed with my choice of dining. Try Gaylord at the Rio instead because Tamba or Gandhi's (sister properties I found out) are low grade, poor quality eateries.

Worst Experience Ever

I am not the type of person that writes reviews, I've worked in restaurants before, so I can understand and sympathize with servers and managers when something goes wrong. My experience is one that no diner can sympathize with, and deserves to have this review written. Tamba came highly recommended by the concierge at MGM so my husband and I decided to check it out. The place looked beautiful, and the restaurant was almost completely occupied with Indians, so we knew the food had to be good. Several servers took care of us that night, a little unusual but everyone was very nice and helpful. The problems started when we attempted to order drinks. We wanted bottled water, but they could only provide sparkling bottled water (fine), we stuck with tap water. We ordered a wine; and they happened to out of it. (understandable). A second wine was ordered; and again out of it. (still understandable). After 4 or 5 attempts (unusual) of jumping back and forth with wine and beer they kept denying us, the server apologized and suggested a nice wine they did have. We denied the Indian beer because we knew it was the only one they had, of course they will say it tastes good. At this point we were a little bit annoyed. We then attempted food. I requested eggplant, and guess what; they were out of eggplant. I settled for what was suggested which was ok. Next we attempted dessert. The one i wanted to try; they were out of as well, and they were out of coffee. This was ridiculous. Despite everyone being so nice and helpful; how can you run a business if you can't provide anything? Why do they even have a menu? Might as well have a fixed menu; because it was so annoying . They had nothing we asked for all night. I've never been to any restaurant that was out of everything in their ""full"" bar, or out of something as little as coffee. If you go to Tamba, just have the server order for you, because you are not going to get anything you ask for. I wanted to speak to a manager and in front of me was a kid. He said his uncle owned the restaurant. I just said forget about it and we left. I guess I would expect the lack of management if i put the responsibility of my restaurant on a kid. I suggest going to the Mcdonalds next door... at least they have everything on the menu.
