I ordered takeout and this was the worst Chicken Masala ever (tasted watery, chalky, and starchy with a very bland taste mixed with an extremely spicy pepper aftertaste....yuck! I had to throw it out. How can you mess up this dish if you're an authentic...Indian restaurant? Also, the Shrimp Byrani was served in the smallest bowl ever compared to other Indian takeout restaurants. However, they did give a generous amount of large jumbo shrimp, but the biryani rice was very bland and mixed with a very hot spice pepper. I'm definitely use to more authentic Indian cuisines that have better quality and flavorful spices...not a spicy pepper to cover the blandness. This was awful! I've eating in numerous authentic Indian restaurants nationwide and this is the worst. I'm posting this since I really wished people were either more educated about the authenticity of the food or honest with their 5 star ratings. I am just trying to save the next Indian food fanatic from wasting their money. I wished someone had written a more accurate description of these dishes to spare me the negative experience.More

We roder dinner at least once a month from Tandav. Excellent service, food is delicious, satisfying quantity and quality of food, okay ambiance. Price per item seems a bit expensive, but most items offer way more than one serving. Been ordering for at least a...year now.More

I am so happy to live only a short walk away from this restaurant. While there are dishes I love to order again and again from Tandav (chana masala, chicken methi, aloo gobi), I have been just as delighted with their food when I try...something new. On top of the incredible food, the owners of this restaurant go above and beyond with service to make Tandav (whether picking up food or dining in) one of the best places to eat in Upper Fells.More

I live a few blocks from Tandav and am very happy to have them nearby. I have gotten takeout before and dined in last night and the food and service both times were amazing. I had the lamb kadai, which was perfect; very tender chunks...of lamb in wonderfully seasoned sauce with tomatoes, green and red peppers and onions. It is accompanied by perfectly cooked basmati rice, and I washed it down with a delicious mango lassi - you could tell how fresh it was! Service was friendly and efficent. I can't wait to go and try the lunch buffet.More

I have passed this corner many times without realizing the restaurant, let alone a treasure, was there. Inside Tandav appears more spacious than the typical Baltimore rowhouse would lead one to expect. There is plenty of room for the buffet and dining tables. The staff...are friendly and helpful in explaining the various dishes. There were several choices of lentils and chicken. The goat curry was tender. A lentil and rice pancake was a nice specialty. Various sauces ranged from tamarind to coconut to coriander. The green beans held their shape. The overall color and taste pallet was most pleasing. One could easily convince oneself to eat more knowing there would be a brisk walk back to the Johns Hopkins medical campus.More

Excellent food and service at Tandav. The food is the best Indian in Baltimore hands down, and the staff are super helpful and friendly. We live in the neighborhood and love it!

Small, pretty restaurant within walking distance of my home. Parking would be a challenge. The Tandav buffet offers just the right amount of selections and all so good. BYOB. Have also enjoyed dinner from an extensive menu. The location is somewhat hidden if you don't...know the City area, but it's worth the effort for a visit.More

Close to the Inner Harbor area. The food was delicious and the servers very courteous, going the extra mile to ensure our meal was perfect. Try the “lime mint” drink!
