Good, not great.

Very nice service, a little slow, but good food takes time. We ordered mild because of the kids, made it a little bland, probably our fault. I think if we ordered medium or hot, it would have been great. Tandoori chicken was GREAT!! Juicy and very tender. Would definitely return.

We had chicken tikka masala and chicken tandoori at this restaurant. The masala was great, a new style that I never had before: delicious and with it's own character. The tandoori was not as I expected: was more like baked at normal temperature, rather than 'tandoori'.

This is now called the "House of Curry & Grill." Owned by the same people that owned Sizzling Tandoor. Typical in many ways of most Indian restaurants with the same Indian meals we've all become accustomed to. Their new sign also says "Indian & Nepalese Cuisine." However, when asking if there was anything on the menu that was indigenous to... More

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.

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.
