I just adore this place. Staff are friendly and always helpful and pleasant!! It is always clean. The food is excellent and hot. A consider the buffet to be very large and has a lot of choices. Top it off they bring you fresh Naan tableside.

Visited the buffet and loved it. Such a variety, and everything tastes great. I love the butter chicken for the sweet and the green chili chicken for the spicy. If I could make one recommendation... Change nothing👍 Will def be back.

We had dinner. Ordered the mixed tandoori grill which was good. The chicken makani was a little sweet for my taste and the chicken tika masala was a little heavy on the ginger. But overall they food was good. The mixed bread basket was excellent and plentiful. The portions are a good size and we had leftovers.

Very happy to enjoy a delicious and varied lunch buffet here. Chai tea and dessert included, along with warm naan bread. A bargain!

Staff was very nice, but a little disconnected from the non-Indian client. Food was good, but not great. Was here 5 years ago and the food was wonderful and not as expensive as it is now. Portions were average and they would serve extra rice if you asked. Thought having a Big Screen TV in the restaurant was tacky, this... More

Stuck back in a strip mall it is easy to see from the road and just as easy to pass by. But not stopping for lunch or dinner is a mistake. Their lunch buffet is extensive, fresh and delicious. Naan comes with the buffet and there are a dozen or more delicious meat and vegetarian dishes to choose. Some of... More

we love Indian food, but we have found that we love a certain style of it. Mahkani is probably our go to, and while this place has a good version, we prefer their competition a little farther down the street. That being said, that's just our opinion, and you can't lose with Tandoors buffet.

If you've never tried Indian food or don't want to eat just 1entree, try their daily lunch buffet. The restaurant is tucked into the corner of a mall and looks a little dismal and deserted from the outside but don't judge it by the outside appearance. Once inside, you are quickly greeted and seated. Fresh naan is delivered to the... More
