Excellent buffet, great value

I've been to the Kentlands branch of this restaurant just once, for the Sunday Buffet and I'd rate it as very good and great for the value. They offered about 20 dishes, and I sampled several. The Naan they brought to the table was delicious. The appetizers were good, the Fish Goani and Lamb and... read more

I must eat at least 6-8 Indian places around Rockville, Germantown, and Gaithersburg. I won't come here much not because it's bad but in comparison with other very good Indian places, quality and price are much better.

In November I have checked out several Chinese lunch buffets in both Frederick and in Montgomery Counties. Tandoori Nights beats them all by an overwhelmingly huge margin. Tandoori probably has the best lunch buffet in all of Montgomery County. There are always three, often four high protein dishes on the line. Tandoori chicken is a constant item. Butter chicken and...

I was at this place for Dinner with family, recently. The atmosphere was cosy and the reservation was made just while we were driving to the place. The dishes were nicely made, customized to our needs and served well. On the whole it was an enjoyable experience and would like to visit again.

I was traveling for business alone and friends suggested I try Tandoori Nights in Gaithersburg. I've also been to the one in Bethesda and both are excellent. On this visit I enjoyed their calamari appetizer and had the Lamb Masala for dinner. The lamb was awesome and I enjoyed every bite. The service was very quick and very attentive, without... More

I had the Goani fish curry and mutter paneer which came with complementary rice. I had ordered 2 tandoori rottis and all in all far too much food for 1 person, even my 6'4" frame. Anyway there was enough left over to box it up and go and I must say if it was food in the restaurant it was... More

This is a good option for those searching for Indian food in the Kentlands. Not great, but good enough to warrant a return visit.

We decided to go to Gaithersburg instead of the Bethesda location as parking is something to consider during a weekend holiday. There was a live band playing right across the plaza about 50 feet from Tandoori Nights. As always, we chose to sit by the bar.. Our bartender, Saurav, is pleasant and attentive. We tried the Masala calamari.. Fabulous.. The... More

One of my favorite Indian Restaurants in the area. It has a expansive dinner menu, excellent wait staff, food is really good and I can recommend all their dishes. The Lunch buffet is also excellent food and excellent value.

The food here is consistently good, with a good selection for meat-eaters as well as vegetarians. Restaurant is small so if going with a large group, may want to make a reservation.
