This was my first time eating food from this restaurant. I ordered my meal to go. I enjoyed the Garlic Naan and the Chicken Tikka Kebob and enjoyed eating it a lot. I look forward to returning and trying other dishes.

Whenever we have the desire for Indian food, this is where we go. We generally do take out. The staff is always very friendly and even recognize us when we phone in an order. Happy to say that the to-go plates seem to be the same as those when we decide to eat in the restaurant. The staff is always... More

I committed a random act of dining and stopped in for their lunch buffet. Pleasantly surprised as to the overall experience. Food was very fresh and loaded with flavor and the place was exceedingly clean and organized. Very staff completed a pleasant lunch experience.

Regular at this restaurant, they provide fast service, decently priced and good tasty food. Can definitely do better with the decor of the place. It looks sad and depressing more so in comparison to the nearby places. Food looks prepared with good hygiene with an open kitchen visible to customers.

Ordered takeout and when I went to pick it up, there was no greeting from the person behind the counter; after I paid and got my change, there was no, 'Thank you' or anything, so I just walked out...

If you're in the tri-valley area, this is a great place for Indian food. We've dined here many times over the years. The food has always been great. The Chicken Wraps are awesome, and so are their Shrimp and goat curries. The food may take some time to arrive, especially on weekends. But if you want to eat freshly prepared... More

Love their spicy chicken wings, certain unami to it. Biryani and even chicken pakoras are good. A little pricer than other indian restaurants in.the area, bu. The venue is cleaner and portion is bigger

I joined a group of co-workers for lunch as Indian was their food of choice. Of course as all you can eat, portions are what you choose. the tandoor chicken, mostly legs and thighs were dry and not so flavorful. Gnaan was acceptable. Other side dishes seemed to me more about residual heat rather than pleasing taste. San Ramon has... More

We have eaten many times at Cafe Tandoor and the food is great every time. Favorite dish is the butter chicken. Recently tried the spicy chaat salad. It was very spicy (as the name implies) and very good. They now have a lunch buffet 7 days a week, but have not had a chance to go during lunch yet. Definitely... More

I tried this restaurant after getting a Groupon. The food and portion size was good. I definitely had leftovers. The tandoor chicken was tasty. Just enough spices for my taste buds. Would go again.
