“Very good food but understaffed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

The food was very good. Slow service. Even with slow service I didn't hear any complaints. To quote a sign in the Calypso restaurant "FAST FOOD IS NOT GOOD, GOOD FOOD IS NOT FAST". If I am in the are I will go back.

“Excellent Clean Indian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is a great restaurant, especially during lunchtime when they have a buffet for $9.95 per adult. They have plenty of variety available and they bring fresh Indian Bread (Nan) to your table.

“No. No. No. Go ANYWHERE else.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Went based on glowing reviews here but things must have changed dramatically for the folks at Tandoor. We were told there were only a few items available from the extensive (and advertised) menu. Waited over 45 minutes for our food, and when we asked the waiter how much longer, he said "15 or 20 more minutes". Wew ere told they were very short staffed, although there were three or four waiters and a bus boy working out front. We left and found somewhere else to eat.

What a disaster. They should at least be up front and honest about the limited menu items and RIDICULOUS wait times.

Oh, and don't use the online reservation form because apparently they don't check that.

“Prepare to wait”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We went on Christmas Eve. I called ahead to make sure they were open for the night. When we entered there were about 5-6 tables occupied and a party of 8. The waiter toke our drink order which came back very soon. We then attempted to order our appetizers. there are about 10 listed bout only 2 were available, so we ordered 1 of the two (potato pancakes). What came out was 3 dried up disks that looked like they had been frozen for awhile. We then ordered our entrees. Almost 2 hours later we told our waiter we were leaving. The waiter blamed the cook. About 15 minutes later the cook came out (who just happened to be the owner). He blamed the waiter for not putting our ticket where they belonged, we were told our meal would be out soon, which they were. The entrees were very good but not worth the wait. Next time I go (if I do) I'll make sure they have more than the owner as the cook.

“Excellent!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

My family and I love this restaurant. The staff are always incredibly friendly. We had lunch today and Vinod was nothing short of awesome. The food is always fresh with robust flavor. I'd recommend this to anyone!!! It's always a pleasant dining experience.
