The food here was excellent. It was my first time here. I took my friend and she loved it. It was quiet, clean, and cozy. The service was impeccable. Waiters were friendly and perhaps too attentive. They refilled our water at least 6 times! The food was fantastic. We had the chicken samosas and some cheese appetizer. Then for the main dish my friend had chicken tikka masala and I had the chicken shahi korma. Both were delicious. Rice was included with the entrees. That has not been the case at other Indian restaurants. Most shocking was that the waiter served us our first portions of rice and chicken! Add some nan to the order and dinner came out to $43. So cheap! I was so thrilled with the food and service

This was my first time ever ordering delivery from this restaurant. I haven't been there, yet. I got the lunch special Chicken Tikka Masala, and requested that it be spicy. It is Excellent! Perfect! I'm eating it, right now, and already promising myself a next time! The delivery guy was very pleasant and gracious, even though I had to tip him in all coins. I'm a Southern girl, so of course I called back to thank them for my delicious meal, and he said I scared him, because New Yorkers never call if they're not complaining. Shame, shame, y'all.

I've availed myself of Tandoori's lunch buffet on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Good food, several vegetarian entrees to choose from, pleasant waitstaff and inexpensive. Super!

Not having much to eat in upper-upper west side, I decided to head down to try this all you can eat lunch special North Indian restaurant. For $8.95 (as of July 2008), this was probably the best food for the price I've had in New York. This day they had chana saag, dal makhani, a vegetable korma that were all delicious. The lamb (Lamb Rogan Josh i think) was pretty ok, I've had better lamb, but they removed the bones (maybe not good if you like to suck on marrow) so overall it was pretty delicious. I hope this place sticks around awhile. Oh, and their mango lassee is pretty solid too.

Chicken Vindaloo: Few pieces of chicken in a lot of Campbell's tomatoe soup with a little pepper Chicken Saag: The same except swimming in Seabrook Farms creamed spinach. Vegetable special: Inedible A defensive manager who, when advised of the disappointing meal, offered a free drink when we come in for dinner. There will be no such event. Avoid this restaurant. It's awful and won't be here long.

I have always been a fan of Tandoori - when it closed its previous location, I was thinking there goes the neighborhood Indian place. I was so happy to see that it's back and I can still enjoy the good food. I have to say that you have to know what's good to have a good dining experience at Tandoori. I recommend the following there to start with: Chicken Tikka Masala Reshmi Kebab Channa Masala Channa Saag Dal Makhani Palak Paneer Granted, I haven't tried many of the items on the menu, but these should get you started and you can venture to other items as you get comfortable with what's good there. Also try the Mango Lassi!

I've had lamb vindaloo at many restaurants across the city and the lamb vindaloo here was pretty good, though the portion was skimpy and the price kind of high. One of my fellow diners had tandoori chicken, which I'm not normally a big fan of (boring) but was very good. The other person I was with had a curry dish that was disappointingly bland and again a small portion for the money. Seems like the food is hit or miss, which it shouldn't be for the semi-high prices. Service was good. The room a bit loud because it was crowded with European tourists from the hotel across the street.
