“My favorite Indian in the Seattle area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I'm very picky with Indian food, having lived in Nepal in the past, but I love this place. Some of the most authentic Indian food I've had in the States. There are a ton of great vegetarian options and they were very accommodating of dietary restrictions (my sister is vegan and they were willing to make many of the veg entrees vegan). The service was excellent. Their saag paneer was great and not overly creamy, and their gulaab jaamen is some of the best I've had. Everything was hot and timely. Five stars.

“Tandoor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Wonderful service but most importantly, wonderful food. An abundance of flavors and smells. If you like spicy, the staff here will accomodate any palate! I could eat here 2-3 times a week!!!

“Great Indian in heart of University District”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

In town for a few days. Most of the ethnic restaurants in the university district look like a place where you will get food poisoning. Tandoor looked acceptably clean. What a nice surprise. The service was great. Food was fresh and flavorful. Indian wine was a nice option.
Order a naan and a special dinner for multiple tastes.

“The best Indian Buffet...ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

For the last couple of years, when I find myself in the University district of Seattle, I repair to a little hole in the wall place on the Ave for a delightful Indian buffet. The strip between 50th and 52nd has a myriad of small ethnic eateries (and convenient back in angle parking), but I have eyes only for Tandoor.
Many Indian lunch buffets provide food a step down in quality from their evening menu. Not here. Although you may not revel in every dish, you will find a score of first class offerings. We went again yesterday and feasted on perfect butter chicken, lamb kofta, and vegetable masala, among others. The charming staff provides nan and cool clear water. You've got to have plenty of water to wash down this feast!
Tandoor provides (gratis) sveral special touches to their buffet. For a choice in beverage they offer a nicely spiced chai. They include unlimited papadum (I adore those crunchy wafers.) And dessert! Mongo likes dessert! Look for a warm batch of glob jonums with your name on them. Yesterday they had,additionally, mango custard (to die for!), rice pudding and carrot pudding.
And the price is amazing. At the heart of lunch hour you will be treated to a variety of students chowing down on this affordable feast. If you're an old goat like yours truly, watching the students is almost as much fun as eating the papadum with spicy mint chutney..
There is not a single negative thing I can say about the buffet at this small Indian eatery. I'm already looking forward to my next foray into Seattle. No need to worry, they've got the curry!
