This is one of the best Indian restaurants we've ever been to. Hard to believe where it's located, in the hills on the coast of California way off the beaten path.

I loved the Indian rice and Marsala chicken. there was plenty for 2 and we took some home for later. not much to be said for the outdoor furniture, but the pelicans flying over head through the fog made up for it.. we were the only ones there for the entire lunch hours

Well this is bizarre ! As you drive North on Route 1 along the wonderful North California coast you pass tempting restaurant after tempting restaurant all specializing in the fresh local oysters. Then, in the middle of nowhere, just a little further than the back of beyond, you come across Sizzling Tandoor.. I nearly did not even get in the... More

Jenner is a small town, with only a few places to eat. This Indian restaurant has authentic Indian food and is situated on Hwy. 1 over the Russian River.

We always said we'd stop here one day, today was it. Allowed our choice of tables, we sat beside the window looking down at the Russian River and beyond to golden hillsides dotted with slow moving cattle. We ordered the tandoori lunch special for two and garlic naan bread. I found a suitable Sau. Blanc on the wine list and... More

Heading north from San Francisco without a dinner plans and stumble upon this Indian restaurant in the middle of nowhere. A bit skeptical we checked out the menu to make sure it was authentic. Besides a less than talkative waitress and the too salty achar our vegetarian meal was a 10. What a treat.

I'm not real big on Indian food but there are not a lot of choices around here and I was on a special get a away with my husband who got all excited at the thought of Indian food. So, I sucked it up and didn't even complain when he said that is what he wanted. Glad I didn't because... More

We got there shortly before the restaurant was due to close, so that might account for the service being some what cold. The food was good. I had tandoori chicken and naan bread. They were tasty and well prepared. I did not like the fact they charge $3.25 for a bowel of rice. I would expect the rice to come... More

This place reminds me of towns that used to put out dummy fog lights and steer ships onto the rocks --- it's all a mirage, there's no food or service here. Read other reviews - it's a bad mistake from the young ladies who cannot tear themselves away from the Bollywood on the TV, to the bad food. If you... More
