We had a good meal and enjoyed the food; the waiter was attentive, customized our order and gave us some extra rice to take home with our leftovers. We noticed that 3/4 of the patrons were of Indian ethnic extraction - presumably, a sign of a good restaurant (or, maybe the owner has a lot of relatives he feeds ;)....would... More

This restaurant has the potential to really be something special but attention from the owners is lacking. First, were welcomed for a for a dining experience with 80 degree temperature on the inside of the restaurant yesterday evening. In the hallway next to the ladies room the wall thermometer temperature read 82 degrees. This is just too hot to make... More

We eat here quite often an take out. My last visit waiter was rude, because I could not understand him. Items missing from my order even though I paid for it. Manager took my credit card to refund, never did.

I've been to the Kentlands branch of this restaurant just once, for the Sunday Buffet and I'd rate it as very good and great for the value. They offered about 20 dishes, and I sampled several. The Naan they brought to the table was delicious. The appetizers were good, the Fish Goani and Lamb and Spinach dishes were excellent. Tandoori... More

I must eat at least 6-8 Indian places around Rockville, Germantown, and Gaithersburg. I won't come here much not because it's bad but in comparison with other very good Indian places, quality and price are much better.

In November I have checked out several Chinese lunch buffets in both Frederick and in Montgomery Counties. Tandoori Nights beats them all by an overwhelmingly huge margin. Tandoori probably has the best lunch buffet in all of Montgomery County. There are always three, often four high protein dishes on the line. Tandoori chicken is a constant item. Butter chicken and...

I was at this place for Dinner with family, recently. The atmosphere was cosy and the reservation was made just while we were driving to the place. The dishes were nicely made, customized to our needs and served well. On the whole it was an enjoyable experience and would like to visit again.

I was traveling for business alone and friends suggested I try Tandoori Nights in Gaithersburg. I've also been to the one in Bethesda and both are excellent. On this visit I enjoyed their calamari appetizer and had the Lamb Masala for dinner. The lamb was awesome and I enjoyed every bite. The service was very quick and very attentive, without... More

I had the Goani fish curry and mutter paneer which came with complementary rice. I had ordered 2 tandoori rottis and all in all far too much food for 1 person, even my 6'4" frame. Anyway there was enough left over to box it up and go and I must say if it was food in the restaurant it was... More

This is a good option for those searching for Indian food in the Kentlands. Not great, but good enough to warrant a return visit.
