The food was tasty - the kids shared butter chicken curry, hubby had chicken tikka masala, I had saag paneer and we had samosas as a starter. But we waited over 40 min for the curries and with only one alcoholic drink per adult, our tab was $78! Not really family friendly at dinner time. We will keep this one... More

We were three hungry individuals and ordered a variety of main dishes, which were all excellent; the chef's tandoori was varied, well done and can easily serve two, the eggplants delicious, as was the korma wala. The ambience was inviting, the service prompt and very friendly. Highly recommended

This is the best Indian food in Seattle, easily. The buffet is fantastic, the space is modern and classy, and the people that work there are nice. There are a couple of ridiculous bad reviews on here that make no sense. Like the guy posting from India, or the guy who claimed he visited in 2015 but didnt post a... More

I been here couple of times for lunch buffet. Not good starters. Not so much for vegetarians for sure. They have sea food options which i never had because of the smell. Overall they can do lot better. Not to miss judge. When you go for ala carte you get nice tatse food. Again not as cheap as you would... More

Informal and friendly Indian restaurant with Punjabi food that is really good! Great for takeout or eating in, or snacking at the bar. We ordered to take out and had a beer at the bar, and Chef Mohammed kept bringing us great snacks to enjoy while our food was being cooked -- great place for a pleasant and tasty meal.

Over the years we have eaten at the Bengal Tiger many times and it has always been reliably good. We ate there recently after a 2year hiatus and we're pleased to find it is still a good choice for Indian food in our neighborhood. Nice atmosphere, good service, good food. The rack of lamb earned raves from our friends, my... More

We went there for lunch one fine day and ordered our food despite the buffet which looked deprived and not worthy. The ordered food was no where near to the authentic taste it should be the amount of fresh cream on all curries were too much to handle and veggies all over the platter. The lamb was to tough to...

We tasted variety of dishes and well, very typical Indian food. I don't think there is anything specially good that can be recommended. The food wasn't bad, but wasn't greatest either.
