This is a great restaurant to taste excellent India food dishes. The service is friendly. We have been going to this restaurant for about a year and we have never been disappointed.

After reading so many mixed reviews on TA, I was not sure what to expect when my husband & I went for a buffet lunch at Tandoori Junction. We were greeted at the door by a polite young man. He asked where we would like to sit & said that the buffet would be ready in five minutes. We were... More

Looking for genuine Indian food is this distant outpost of the British Empire? Here you go. Wide range of menu choice and delicious preparation put Tandoori Junction (bad choice of name?) in a class with the best of ethnic Devon Avenue in Chicago. We carried out a large order one night and were impressed; eating in can only be better... More

We have been in Canada for 18 months and since then have not found a decent Indian. We have tried and been hugely disappointed. Tandoori Junction is the closest we've found to a UK standard. It is not as good as the Mogul in Bagshot but as good as we have found in BC. Definitely worth a shot.

Super friendly staff who definitely aim to please. All the traditional dishes. It was very hard to decide what to choose. I had veggie samosas, Aloo Gobi and spinach naan. My husband had chicken vindaloo and potato naan. All were absolutely delicious and true to the "hot" chart. Good portion sizes as well. Prices were VERY reasonable. I can't wait... More

I recently came for lunch and had the buffet. The food was good, but not great. The buffet had a variety of meat dishes, for example, butter chicken. Also some vegetarian dishes, rice, naan and desert. The price for a buffet is average. This is a large restaurant and could easily accommodate a large group. Service was average given that... More

Food was absolutely amazing...too bad there was barely no service. Has a very busy takeout clientele and I can see why. The place was not that busy when we arrived and there was no need for the poor service. It's too bad that they do not have a kitchen runner to deliver the food. Would order food to go the... More
