Good choice in a buffet but why the 15% service charge?

After a long trip to the falls, Tandoor Palace is a straightforward choice for Indians hungry and desperate for Indian food. We were lucky to find a buffet. So there was a good choice. The desserts - Carrot Halwa and Fruit Custard were also good. However, I don't know why Indian buffet makes me... read more

Great Indian food and my daughter loved the train! They even let us take a look in the traditional area of the restaurant where you can sit on the floor. I would have given it 5 stars but as with most Indian food the spices can be felt as spicy to kids. Great time.

This place is great. There is a restaurant part but we ate in the train car. What a great experience. We had kebobs of lamb, chicken and shrimp in curry and spices, along with indian spice curry chicken with basmati rice. Wow was it spicy but delicious. Nice size portions too. Even had some indian beer for the complete experience.

The atmosphere is pretty cool being in a train car, and the food is pretty good. But they charge $3 for rice and the dishes are all at least $15 even though its not really a fancy place. $6 for 3 small veggie samosas is pretty intense. If you come here you will get a decent meal, but expect the... More

I have last here many times, finally decided to give it a try after falling in love with Indian food. It's a true old fashioned poconos style place. However it is in the form of an old train car. Very much adds to the fun of the visit. Food came out piping hot and fresh. Slightly smaller portions that some... More

Came in for lunch while passing through on the interstate. The train concept is nice but they wouldn't sit our family there and instead sat us at a table that hadn't been cleaned. They brought water glasses but didn't fill them and instead put them on the table in a hurried way leaving two overturned. Not a great place for... More

Great flavors and expansive menu. Ordered the Butter Chicken and it was to die for! They brought out a few different curry sauces so I could heat it up or cool it down as I desired. Any time I an cruising by on I80 I will make it a point to stop in!!

Most pathetic Indian Restaurant. I believe menu shown on the website is just to attract customers to the restaurant as there was no a la carte available for dinner. There was only buffet for the dinner also and managers were very ignorant and unapologetic. We went there for dinner just because we saw a very decent menu on restaurant website.... More
