My colleagues and I went for lunch, a group of 11 people... we all had one trip to the buffet, and drank water. Really good food, but, aside from the waiter bringing us one basket of naan, there was no service involved. Yet they charged us 18 percent gratuity!! That is a great tip for even outstanding full service... quite... More

Our group of five enjoyed the food and ambience at this Bethesda restaurant on a recent summer night. The interior is a jewel with turmeric-colored walls with saffron-colored accents and glimmering black tabletops. Service was prompt and consistent. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer though it was stingy on the calamari. A novelty was the spinach appetizer--it reminded me of kale... More

I enjoyed my dinner here. I came here with a coworker. We got a variety of kabobs and naan. We also got an eggplant vegetable dish. All dishes were delicious and enough to split between two girls. The waitress was so nice. We didn't like one waiter who was pretty standoffish. I think he just misunderstood us. Overall it was... More

A stylish restaurant with a large menu, good prices, and attentive staff. The food was ready quickly and reasonably priced. There is no children's menu, but enough variety that we could find a nice mix of dishes that satisfied everyone. Two adults and three children spent $57 (before tip) on 3 main dishes, 2 orders of Naan, and 1 order... More

It was one of our best Indian night out. We have lived in places where Indian food is the food of the nation, so we know what good Indian food taste like. We all loved the food and thought it was very close to the real thing! Will go back again! Enough to choose from, even for our vegetarian daughter!

Very good setting for festive group meal but I did not think the vegetarian food was anything special. The service was very friendly and patient, and as I said the setting was very pleasant. It also seemed rather expensive compared to local competition, that said, probably still a good choice for a mixed veg and non veg group especially given... More

Great atmosphere, clean, and most importantly the food is delish! Prices are relatively reasonable. Zaika in Clarendon is a sister restaurant and would give it the same review, though that restaurant comes across more upscale.

Although the price was a hair high, we still enjoyed the Indian feast. The service was excellent considering how busy it was and the waiter brought a steady stream of water refills when he overheard my husband complain that he felt dehydrated. I thought that was rather kind of the waiter to pay attention enough to overhear us and respond... More

This space has changed management and decor all for the better. The food is just as good as ever or better. The service is good as well. We eat here often and seldom find better Indian Food.

So it was a rainy Saturday and we were looking for a romantic place to eat outside because our baby was with us (my beautiful biewer/yorkie mix) so we decide to go to Tandoori Nights, we talk to the hostess and asked if we could seat outside she said yes and promptly brought water for my husband, my dog and...
