I am a huge fan of Tandoor India. My "Indian Friends" used to tell me they order from a small place in University City. Finally I asked and went. The place is great. The staff loves their customers, the food is good and the renovations have made a huge improvement. Go you won't be disappointed!

I ate the buffet here for lunch yesterday and it was amazing. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful in getting drinks and coordinating plates. They even went so far as telling me before I asked that there are discounts for students ( on a buffet that was already under 9 dollars). The food was amazing and unlike many... More

They have virtually everything you'd want in a buffet. Even the vegetarian selection was great. The non veg had a chicken curry, tandoori chicken and a mutton curry (other than chicken biryani). The food was good for the price.

This somewhat obscure Indian restaurant offers a nice buffet with a big selection of vegetarian dishes as well as the standard Indian meat dishes. I especially enjoyed the goat curry which had plenty of meat with little bone, in contrast to what one usually finds in this offering at other buffets. The food can be a bit spicy and if... More

Found this on the near me now button while driving into UPenn. Was just going to get takeout since it was after 9p but the Buffett was plentiful and warm and well kept. The owners were pleasant. Very good house specialties. Definite favorite

Visited the campus after 27 years, and so many changes!! We searched for an Indian restaurant on the Tripadvisor app and found this. We enjoy Indian buffets in NY. And from the store front, we had expected rather limited number of dishes, but we were wrong. Besides many meat and veggie dishes, it was great to have samosas and other... More

Tandora is one of my favorite restaurants. The value is great for an all you can eat buffet. Oh, I forgot to mention the food. Lol. No, really the food and staff are excellent!!!!!!!!! If you want to take your family or have a nice quiet romantic dinner this the place to go for excellent authentic Indian food.

Tandoor has some of the worst customer service I have ever seen but the food is WOW!!! They are slightly cheaper than New Delhi and every bit as good, in fact certain items like dishes with eggplant are better than New Delhi. If I am ordering in, this is hands down my first pick for Indian in Univ. City/West Philly!
