Based on reviews and recommendations, visited here tonight for the first time and will not be going back. We mostly stuck to regular Indian favorites. The onion bhajia and vegetable samosa were standard issue and perfectly fine starters, but the chicken pakora were a sign of things to come. They were rubbery, not at all crisp, and tasted of poor quality meat. When our main course arrived, the chana masala was less than stellar, but okay. The meat dishes were absolutely abysmal. The lamb shashlik was seasoned well, but the meat was grisly, tough, and served in enormous pieces that minimized the spice. The chicken tikka was similarly cumbersome and weak. Chicken tikka normally comes sizzling with tasty cooked onions. This dish was served on an ugly garnish of greens with no onions at alland not particularly hot, either. Meanwhile, service was terribly slow. There was a very long lag before each course and our check took forever to arrive.

We were so sad when the previous location closed down. We could find no Indian in the neighbohood as good, for the price. Welcome back!

I have lived in the city for a while and I have never received such great service. They were very pleasant and it was refreshing to know that there exists such niceness in NYC. I highly recommend it.

We were regulars at the previous location. The food then was very good and the prices, particularly on the lunch buffet, were unbelievably low. Sure, the prices have gone up quite a bit with the new place but the food is even better and the decor is much nicer than the previous setting (which resembled a diner).

Well have to say this place is going down hill,the food is moderate and the service is okay,have to say the drinks are below average,they have a full bar but the servers barely know what they have in it,im not not going back there.

Because I live less than a block away, I would like to say (and believe) that this is the best Indian restaurant in the neighborhood. Unfortunately not true: that honor probably goes to Indus Valley. The food at Tandoori is, in fact, pretty pedestrian, your standard UWS vindaloos, tandoors, tikkas, etc, (The one exception is the andrak ke panje, rack of lamb, which is really tasty and unusual.) However, you will just not meet nicer people than the host and servers at this restaurant, and that goes for a lot. In addition, the atmosphere is quite nice, with pretty French doors opening out onto the sidewalk (at least until winter sets in). The noise level can get high (many people bring children), but never deafeningly so.
