It was certainly strange being in an Indian Restaurant where none of the waitstaff was Indian. And, the menu had more Steaks, Chinese, & Thai entrees than I would have expected. That said, they had my favorite Indian dish, Chicken Tikka Masala. And it was quite tasty, though different from other restaurants where I've had it before. And so were... More

Tuesday night so reservation tho late was easy to get. We did ask to be moved since the straight back boot seat is a bit uncomfortable. Indian food was great - Biriani and Rogan josh. Not as spicy as I make at home but well prepared and it looked good on the plate. We added a pint of Picaroons Best... More

I have tried Indian around the world (not yet in India) This is the best so far. Maybe I lucked out with the dishes we chose, but it was perfect and perfect the next day as well. The portions are very large. They will prepare gluten free, including a bread. Don't miss this place. Service was top notch, it was... More

We needed a place to grab a quick, smallish meal as we had an event to attend later in the evening. Knowing that the portions at Thandi's tend to be quite large, we scanned the appetizer offerings. We decided on the appetizer plate for 2 described as a "Tasty variety of Indian appetizers consisting of tandoori chicken, lamb kabab, samosa... More

What I thought was a small restaurant, actually had a second floor, which explained why the kitchen never seemed to stop. The Thai food was fresh, perfectly seasoned, with very large portions. Large bar in the front, which has a marble parsons table, is fine for a meal if you're in a rush.

We went here for a Birthday supper. The service and food was great. We needed help in deciding between the various "curries" offered and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. They recommended four assorted and complimentary dishes that we could share. The service was very friendly, the food was excellent, and the ambiance was great. We will definitely be... More

The chicken tika massalla was great. The thai sea food dish too. The pad thai was not bad. And the samosa (starter) as well. The fillet fish was very disappointing.

We didn't know what to expect when we arrived, but the space is quite large and the food is scrumptious. We ordered dishes to share and no one was disappointed, even the picky eater.
