One doesn't expect to find an excellent southern Indian restaurant in a relatively small New York town, so it was a real joy to have a really excellent meal at Tanjore. The menu had a cross-section of Indian food, but the restaurant specialized in the southern Indian state of Kerala. My sense is that you really can't go wrong with... More

During a recent drive to Boston from NC, we opted to spend the night in Fishkill. Lovely little town. We drove up and down the main drag trying to decide on a place to eat. After turning onto the main street and cruising down toward the end, I swung around in a parking lot and spied this place on the... More

Haven't tried full menu, but their lunch buffet is very good. Usually a chicken and/or lamb curry dish. Sometimes a fish dish and always a vegetarian curry. Great Nan and veg sides with a good dessert. Not as wide a selection as you might get in Manhattan, but enough to please everyone at a good price. All well cooked and... More

We visited Tanjore recently by the recommendation of friends. I guess I was expecting more as I have eaten at many Indian restaurants over the years, and I felt that the meals I had eaten previously were better. The garlic naan was delicious as was the rice that came with the meals. However, the shrimp with a spicy sauce was... More

So the tikka masala was good, but I asked for beyond Indian spicy- the coconut based shrimp tasted like nothing, and the mutter paneer masala- tasted like less. If you like a tikka masala? They are awesome! If you want more? Not so good.

All of our curries were very good, and came variably spiced (from mild to hot) as advertised. In contrast, appetizers (samosas and pakora) were very bland, raita was very watery and the breads were so-so. However, Indian restaurants are pretty rare in the area, and this is as good as any I have tried. PS. The Kingfisher beer served is... More

Have been a regular customer for many years. Good food, decent selection. They also have buffet in weekend. The dessert is tasty actually, worth a try. Plenty of parking, fast service. Tip : if you are unfamiliar with the dish make sure to ask for not spicy first.

Always great food. Pleasant atmosphere. Service can be a little slow when the crowds come in. Lunch buffet is a great value with many different choices. I always come with a group of frineds for the lunch buffet and we have a great time with a low cost.

There is an a'la carte menu and the all you can eat buffet. There's usually chicken, a beef or lamb, and some days a fish entree, there's always tandoori chicken, basmati rice, naan bread, several vegetarian sides, and mildly sweet deserts. The servers are always attentive; clearing the dishes away.

Went with two other people that had been here before and highly recommended. This was my first time eating Indian food and it was terrific. The wait staff were very helpful in explaining things to me and most accommodating. The fare was very tasty and the service excellent. I will return and recommend Tanjore to my friends.

Thank Richard W
