My wife and I started with the garlic naan and the tomato shorba an excellent combination for a cold damp early night out at this Bethesda restaurant.. Varun, the manager welcomed us and sat us by the window table. A perfect setting watching the foot traffic go along this busy stretch of Woodmont. Varun remembered us from our frequent visit....

Great food, great quality, not much more you can ask for. Of all the fancy restaurants to eat at in Bethesda, this is my 11-year-old daughter's favorite place.

This place is my go to for good indian food. Being an Indian, it's hard to appreciate good Indian food. But I love this place. I go here almost every month.

Tandoori Nights is a neighborhood Indian restaurant on trendy Woodmont Ave., in downtown Bethesda. Casual and comfortable. Good service by knowledgeable wait staff. Best of all, the food is really good. Three of us shared three appetizers and three main courses. For starters, we had the Aloo Chat Papri (a delicious mixture of a variety of different stuff) and Kurkure... More

While I appreciate and like Indian food, I am quite critical in terms of quality and taste. But the experience I had here was unbeatable to any Indian food I have tried in recent years or decades. It came as a total surprise but I loved the food here. And the staff were great too, especially the person names Santosh:... More

Happened to go in for an unplanned dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Good chicken tikkas. Very reasonably priced. Will definitely go again.

I loved this place. Almost skipped it based on reviews we read since there are so many great restaurants in this area. But, I am so glad we reconsidered! It was packed as we walked past and the food smelled amazing. There is indoor and outdoor dining. Sat indoor where authentic music played and the ambiance was perfect. Appetizers, dinner,... More

I went here with a friend from out of town. Although there were plenty of eating options around, she liked Indian food and this place was convenient and reasonably priced. The restaurant was attractive, the menu seemed extensive for a small place and we were seated right away, which was a plus. Although "Tandoori" seemed to be the emphasis, I... More
