This has to be one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever been to! My mother and I stopped here while on a road trip, at the recommendation of our motel. The food was amazing, the menu was extensive, and the service was wonderful. Many of the dishes were made with spices imported directly from India. Everything was delicious... More

Thanks again Sizzling Tandoor for ANOTHER great meal...I order the Veggie Shaslik and they are SOO accommodating to make it without oil, and it is DELICIOUS. The portion sizes are always spot on with enough to take home for lunch the next day. My favorite appetizer to get here are the veggie samosas and mango chutney...together! We took a friend... More

We stopped for lunch in Santa Rosa on our way north. We ordered the lunch buffet which was excellent. The buffet included salad, desserts, multiple entrees and sides, and an array of sauces. Hot nan bread was brought directly to our table. My wife was thrilled with the Tandoor chicken, one of her favorites. Despite ordering the buffet, we found... More

$8.99 lunch buffet is fantastic. Salad bar, multiple main dishes with 2 kinds of rice and dessert. A great deal and really good quality and variety. Dinner has a large menu but is much more expensive and I did not like what I ordered, nor did my husband, twice now. Stick to lunch buffet, and you are safe.

I have been eating at the Sizzling Tandoor for 18 years now and still love it as much today as I loved it the very first time I ate there. First of all, their chai is phenomenal. Its spicy and wonderful. Their nan is a great texture and the sauces they serve are flavorful and distinct. I really love their... More

If you're craving authentic Indian food, this is your destination! The menu is huge and yet everything is made to order, and totally authentic, plus they use local free-range chickens, kosher lamb - all excellent quality foods. At lunch they make it quick for you with a wonderful buffet - and they always have many vegetarian selections. But the best... More

For a long time I'd been curious to try the lunch buffet. My daughter and I did last week. Wonderful!!! She is vegetarian and had many choices. Everything was just great! Price was very fare for the selection and quality. Looking forward to going back.
