This somewhat obscure Indian restaurant offers a nice buffet with a big selection of vegetarian dishes as well as the standard Indian meat dishes.

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

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!

This place has seen better days, but still a good value for the price if you're in the mood for south Indian food.
