Even their mild was spicy, I thought the food was excellent and authentic. They used to be open for lunch and last time I was there it said they didn't open until.

My husband and I have this place. All the other Indian restaurants in the Springs just seem to be lacking, but their food is so flavorful. Great drink selection. Friendly service too. We love to watch the dancing on the big screen, which you can...see from Just about anywhere in the restaurant.More

Had take away. Happy to have found good food while on a trip. Only complain - the naan was a bit strange. It was flat and softer - like a white roti.. but the lachera (layered) paratha was awesome.. it Stayed soft even the next...day. Achari chicken and baingan was good too . .. oh, the (Channa masala / Chole had too much of a canned tomato gravy taste vs nice punjabi chole flavor. .. but .. generally satisfied.More

As a frequent visitor to India, my pallet is set for authenticity of flavors, diversity and excellence (humbly said & I’m married to an Indian!). UT exceeded all my expectations upon my first visit today and how wonderful for it to be so. 😁 No...need for deep descriptions of food or atmosphere, all was perfect. A gentle sense of the motherland is here as Bollywood music videos played softly played in the background. The chefs are working where one can watch them through glass. Artistry in action! Clean, spacious, private booths but parties are welcome. Food that would make Gandhi blush with pride. Now beware, this is not your fast food, Nepalese-turned-India restaurant...hot, spicy means exactly that and is not for the faint of heart or braggarts. You’ve been warned! But if you enjoy heat and yet with delicious flavor, go for it, you will not be disappointed! The location is fine but not as easy to find or enter as one would like. However, who would ever seek anything from India without some exciting exploration?! So, what are you waiting for?More

There are dishes that are worthwhile, but the majority of the dishes as well as the mango lassi were flavorless. The samosas and green chili naan were the only dishes I would recommend. There are better choices in the Springs (Indus). The service was mediocre,...and slow. The restaurant itself has nice decor and atmosphere. Was disappointed with what passes for such high ratings in the Springs. I would not recommend.More

This place had a fun and bright atmosphere. Loved the giant screen playing fun Bollywood music and videos on one side of the room. (You can sit on the quieter side, too.) Right on Academy by the Air Force academy and I-25 entrance. I can't...believe we drove past so many times and didn't go in, but we are happy that we finally did. So close to our house, and a great place to bring our big group. Dishes large enough to share. We had plenty of leftovers to take home, too.More

The food at Urban Tandoor was amazing. I tried the the vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, both were very flavorful and delicious. I tried one of the chief’s special Naan Breads (PESHAWARI NAAN - Bread stuffed with sweetened coconut and cherries), it was different but added...a great depth of flavor. I highly recommend Urban Tandoor if you like Indian Food, or would like to try Indian Food.More

When you go please say hi from Jeff and Angel from Minnesota. Upon entry we were greeted with a big smile from a very lovely young lady also from Minnesota who asked if we prefer the lounge area with a huge tv screen playing Bollywood...videos or the more intimate quiet section without noise. We took the videos. Our waiter VICKY from Punjab was at out table in less than a minute and two beers were on our table within two minutes. Vicky recommended the roasted eggplant with tomatoes and onions, spinach with panner and chicken in an amazing spicy cream sauce. All his recommendations were perfect. The surprise was the rice. It was the most perfectly cooked basmati rice I have ever eaten. I ate two bowls. All the food was great and the service and ambience were too. I highly recommend this restaurant.More

I am not the most educated on Indian cuisine, but it reminded me of the flavors I tasted when I visited India. Curry is on the menu. I really enjoyed having lunch in the lounge. The seats were interesting (little back support), but it was...not an inconvenience. I had a chacumber salad and chicken tikka marsala. I was offered a complimentary cup of soup and complimentary battered and fried zucchini bits. I passed on the soup because of how hungry I was, but the fried zucchini bits were excellent. They has a unique batter that was enough to bring me back just for them. I sat eating my salad and zucchini while listening to/watching Indian music being played on a huge big screen TV. The music wasn't what I would have expected. It was very modern. The foreign language was mixed with a good sound that made it enjoyable. The chicken tikka marsala was served with rice and nann (flat bread). I had mine with medium heat. It was a pretty good choice. THEY LIKE TO STUFF YOU FULL, so come hungry. The prices were respectable. I had water to drink. The way they serve their water is neat. It comes in a carafe. I am a water snob. If it has an unpleasant smell or taste, I won't drink it. This water was very refreshing...no smell or foul taste. Two thumbs up for this. The staff was very pleasant as well. I would go here again. The food I had this time did not resemble any of the meals I had in New Delhi, but that is what the next time is for.More
