My husband and I went for a late dinner, we had just got back in town from a weekend away. We were the only people in the restaurant despite it being open an hour later than when we arrived (it was a Monday) they made us very welcome. Service was fast, lychee Martini was okay. The curry was really good.... More

I have been going to Tandoori Nights since it first opened and also since the management changed with new Indian owners. The lunch buffet has constantly improved and it is an outstandingly good buffet for a satisfying and flavorful lunch. Before you go thru the buffet line order your drinks, and try the Mango Lassi (a cold thick smoothie) or... More

Tandoori nights has very tasty Indian food. I've never had anything bad here.. .BUT it is priced on the higher side and they really skimp on the portion sizes. Others in the area give generous portion sizes at this price point with the same or better quality. I visit Tandoori Nights when there is a coupon because they do provide... More

Found out that they now offer lunch buffet. Very reasonable weekday lunch for $10.99! Appetizer, tandoori chicken, briyani, 3 veg & 3 meat dishes, 2 desserts, fresh naan brought to the table-their weekday buffet rivals other Indian restaurants' weekend buffets. Add attentive service & good ambience made it a good place for lunch in the Kentlands.

Great menu with a lot of choices . Endless vegetarian section . Wonderful nonalcoholic drinks and huge variety of custom made alcoholics drinks. It is... More

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.
