“Hot and not!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

Pluses- decor, some outstanding veggie dishes
Negatives-Shrimp vindaloo sauce was mediocre at best (we asked for spicy and received a two dimensional thin sauce with very few shrimp). Food gerally overpriced. Service very inattentive on a slow night.
There are numerous better options for Indian food in DC and Bethesda.

“They pass the test”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We're consumate Indian fare aficionados. We've now been to Tandoori Nights twice and have loved the food twice. The decor is modern Indian which, actually, is refreshing. You get tired of the stereotype decor after a while. The prices are not 'cheap' but for downtown Bethesda, they fair. We'll be going back soon.

“New Indian restaurant in Bethesda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The food was good. Service was not the best. Compared to a comparable restaurant that we recently visited, Jewel Of India, I would say that Tandoori is pricier without giving anymore in the way of service, ambiance than given in Jewel of India.

“Elegant dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

This is the newest branch of the Tandoori Nights chain (total 3). It is located in busy restaurant row,close to Bethesda Row cinema. We visited prior to seeing the" Best Exotic Marigold Hotel", movie, set in India.
The decor is elegant and subdued, food tasty and cooked to perfection and our server made sure our food was delivered promptly (as well as our check) , so we would make the movie in time. We were surprised that we were able to order a bottle of wine made in India, from the SULA vineyard. It was a refreshing Chenin Blanc, a perfect accompaniment for the hot spicy delicious food. Imagine our surprise when we see that is the wine that is being served to the characters in the movie. I believe the winery was started in India, by a man who returned to India, having made money in the IT business in the USA.
