“A positive experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Let me start by saying I am not a big fan of Indian cuisine. I have had it several times in the past including several times in London which is somewhat known for having top notch Indian restaurants. I ended up at Tandoori Village for a going away lunch for a coworker. We all had the lunch buffet which seemed to have a moderate selection of different dishes. Since I do not have a lot of experience I can't say whether it was authentic Indian food not, but I have to say that I rather enjoyed it. While not fancy, the buffet did have relatively small portions of each dish and the portions were replaced frequently, so the items were hot and fresh. None of the items were really heavily spiced (one of the things I don't care for). The service was good, although we were pretty much the only people in the restaurant at the time. The atmosphere is interesting - lots of ethnic items and decorations. The restaurant is actually an old house - in fact it used be Chez Marc, one of the best french restaurants in Northern Virginia. Tandoori Village isn't quite that remarkable, but it is worth a try, particularly if you are "investigating" Indian food.

“Great buffet, always well stocked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

My friend and I go to Tandoori Village for a ladies lunch about once a month. The food is well prepared and delicious. The meat entrees are always tender and all the dishes are authentic. The hostess, who also tends the tables, is dressed in traditional clothing and is always friendly and attentive. Once in a while, when the regular hostess is off duty, there are other staff who need a little reminding to check on the customers, but overall, it is a great place for lunch. This is the first place we go to for authentic Indian/Punjabi food.

“Great food, but don't forget to get your full serving of puris!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2011

Wonderful food for the value! But please, make sure to get two puris as it counts as one order of bread. If you don't, they will serve you only one puri and stop at that. They will say that they serve one puri at a time for freshness. But if you don't ask for the 2nd puri, they will not bring another one. I found that a little bit dishonest. Otherwise, everything else is great and I highly recommend this restaurant. You will absolutely love it, especially the buffet on week-ends!

“Amazing food, beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2010

The weekend brunch is a phenomenal value, so take advantage of it if you can. Tandoori Village serves amazing Indian food--their Chana Masala is my favorite. The interior of this restaurant is stunning, especially the craftmanship of the tables and chairs. (I asked the owner if it is possible to purchase them and surprisingly, you can!! Unfortunately, they're a little out of my price range...)

Service can be a little slow sometimes (especially if you go through water as fast as I do when eating spicy food) but the waitresses are always bustling around, trying to take care of everyone when it's packed--and it usually is.

“Great Indian food reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2010

The naan and tandoori mixed grill are to die for. The naan might be the best I've ever had. Service is good, decor is unique, prices are reasonable.
