“Awesome Southern Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

I had never had southern indian food, but I was really impressed with the dosal. There were so many options on the menu but the waitstaff was very helpful, although a little slow to respond. Pretty busy, atmosphere is nothing special but clean and comfortable.

“Tower- Awesome South Indian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

My husband and I LOVE Tower. We've been a few times since relocating to Cary in early 2010, and Tower has never disappointed us. The atmosphere is a bit bland, but the service is prompt and kind. And take just one look at the clientele-- mostly Indian families-- and you'll know that the food served is high quality, authentic stuff. Tower specializes in South Indian cuisine, so be sure not to miss the phenomenal dosas. Their lassis-- both sweet and salty-- are the perfect accompaniment to your meal. And most of all, be sure to go on a weekend for dinner, so you can partake in the thali specials. SO much food, all superb, for about $12-15 per person. My husband and I both ordered thalis, which we quickly learned was a mistake-- it was too much food. The bright side-- leftovers!

“Food is good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2009

We just moved to Cary, and have been to Tower 3 times. In general, the food is good, and it is not too expensive (about $15-20 per person without alcohol). The staff is very nice and friendly, and the decor is neat and clean. Overall, a place worth going to. Food is more Indian than Saffron, where the food is the Americanized version.

“Favorite Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2009

Tower restaurant is a Southern Indian Restaurant serving a variety of vegetarian dishes. I know many of you are like me and probably are meat eaters. I am in particular a big one and always had issues with going to vegetarian restaurants before Tower. The food is great and they do not hold back on spices. Definitely try a dosai perhaps to be shared with others and if you are in a big enough group get the tower sampler. I am not a big fan of the idli which come as part of the dish - it kind of reminds me of wonder bread but you may be able to substitute it for something else. other than that everything is great.

I recommend this restaurant highly and always bring friends to it!
