Decent Indian food, not enough waiters

Had dinner there before a show at the Merrill. There was only one other party seated when the three of us arrivedabout 6:15, but within 20 minutes or so every table was filled. There were about 12 tables and one, yes one, waiter. A woman did come out of the kitchen and helped with water gasses... read more

We love to eat here when we visit our kids. They have a great atmosphere, drinks & food. A different menu from the regulars. I love their sauces. Get a great meal. Family friends, but high end.

Ordered Garlic Naan, Vegetable Biriani, Mixed Grill, Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Rogan Josh. All dishes were delicious. I ordered between medium and hot, for me, it was fairly mild. Next time I'll order the food "hot". Price was very reasonable. Lots of people in the restaurant, which is usually a good sign. Friendly staff (owner)

We had a quick lunch here, driving thought Portland. Great choice! Food was amazing! And service was fast, professional and friendly. Coming from east end of long island, we thought $24 lunch for two people is a joke! Only downfall of this place is a bathroom, that needs to be updated, but I can not give this place less than...

Don't listen to the negative reviews from these ritsy individuals. This place is bottom line. Good service, decently priced, and good food. I do agree with the one comment above that it wasn't spicy enough. That was our first visit and then we asked them to kick it up a notice our second visit and it was perfect. Fresh garlic... More

Good but if you're looking for spicy look elsewhere. I asked for extra spicy and when it came out it was made mild. Smaller size portions than some indian restaurants that I've been to.

The guy who took care of us was rude. He acted like he didn't care. And the chicken we ordered was stale and stinker and when we complained he just rudely said its how it is ! What a waste of time and money and my stomach hurts too ! Such terrible quality !! Please avoid it

My spouse and I went to Tandoor for dinner. I got the mutter paneer (medium spicy) and my spouse got the channa masala (no spice). The food came...exactly as we asked. The mutter paneer left a nice light burn on the lips and the channa masala was very flavorful with no hint of heat. When we commented to the waiter... More

I eat here often, frequently in conjunction with going to the nearby movies. The food and service are both very good.The food is nicely seasoned and well prepared. Some favorites are Lamb Saag and Keema Mutter. The atmosphere is simple but quite nice.

This restaurant has been a fixture on Exchange Street for many years. I know it because my out-of-town visitors insist on visiting it very time they are in Portland. Why ? I am not sure, so in early August I joined them to check it out. It was my first visit in many years. The location is good and probably... More
