“Excellent East Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Every chance I get takes me back to this excellent East Indian restaurant in Stockton. The staff is friendly and family owned and they never forget a return customer. No matter what you order, Aloo Goobi, Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Vindaloo, each and every dish is has distinctively different flavors and is perfectly prepared. The naan is always freshly made for each table and each dish can be made as hot or mild as you prefer just by asking. I always feels well attended and taken care of (almost like being at moms) when I am at this restaurant. Don't let the location throw you, the area is a little run down but inside is authentically decorated and clean. If you haven't tried Indian and are nervous about investing in something you may not be familiar with, try the lunch buffet which provides a great selection of traditional Indian cuisine and daily specials. I have had East Indian food everywhere and my favorite is in Stockton at Tandoori Nites. The people are great, the food is great, the prices are reasonable, I love it. Enjoy!

“Fantastic food and owners!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This is one of our favorites in Stockton--a family owned/run East Indian restaurant with something for everyone. There are meat/poultry/fish/seafood/vegetarian entrees and you can order unspicy dishes, or you can order your meals mild, medium, or very spicy. The home made breads and sauces are delicious! Mango lattes are delicious. The steamed seasoned rice is aromatic and fabulous. I love the saags and my husband loves the vindaloos, but we often order different items. The ambiance is quiet enough so that you can hear those at your table (it is not a loud restaurant). At lunch there is a buffet. The food is authentic, and the spice blends are heavenly!
