Considering other excellent options in NYC, this place falls short. We also had to deal with a busload of package tour - made for lengthy wait. There are several better options within couple blocks.

My husband, teenage son, and I ate at the Tamba Indian Grill and Bar on this past Sunday evening. Generally we do not eat out as the food that we make at our home is better than most moderately priced restaurants. However, we had a groupon and decided to give it a try. Wow- we loved the food. It was... More

The lunch package is for all you can eat buffet and every person gets a chicken-wing in addition to that, you may ask the waiter /... More

We were visiting NYC and found this place on Groupon. We had a party of 5 for 7PM on a Wed. There were on 2 customers in the dining room when we arrived. The dining area seats about 100. The host was very informative and efficient. Once we ordered, they placed a plate of crisp thin bread on the table... More

I love this place, the food is delicious and the price is reasonable. Their customer service is great. I went there last week. I bite something spicy and tears came out of my eyes. The manager saw it and asked kitchen to cook something special.. I am impressed by their great service.. I will go there often:)

I'm used going to indian restaurants in Paris, San Francisco, etc. For the first time, I tried one in NYC. I was really pleased in choosing the buffet (10 $). A great variety of main courses but the entrees were really poor. The food was excellent, tasty and flavored. As usual in indian restaurants, the servers were nice. If you're... More

I had never been to this restaurant before but couldn't pass up the opportunity to snag a Groupon being offered for a meal for two priced for one. We decided to use it as our dinner spot before seeing Rocky on Broadway. The food was excellent, well flavored and fresh. The servers were nice (I love how people say the... More

There is a lot of competition in the neighborhood for Indian food, but I wouldn't suggest going anywhere else. I ordered saag paneer (veggie) and my boyfriend ordered chicken madras. Both were tasty and filling. Also, the service was wonderful. Really. I highly recommend Tamba and will be sure to go back myself. Enjoy!
