For some time now, my wife has been badgering me to go to Tandoori Flame for Indian food. She had been to Tandoori Flame before and loved the food. It is also a favorite of her boss. Finally, over the Holidays, the whole family went for a belated birthday celebration for our son and daughter-in-law, who were visiting from New Brunswick.
We went on a Friday night and as expected, the place was rammed. We were told that there would be a ten minute wait to be seated and directed to the bar area. Some forty minutes later my wife inquired when we might expect to get a table. We were finally seated after waiting for forty-five minutes.
Tandoori Flame is like an Indian version of The Mandarin, only without the friendly welcome and attentive service from the staff. As advertised, the food was delicious, with an expansive variety of dishes. There were dancers and a drummer wandering the restaurant, in traditional Indian garb, which added a touch of authenticity to the ambiance.
Unfortunately, the service was indifferent, bordering on rude, when it came to the servers. In addition to the long wait for a table, we tried repeatedly to get the attention of our waiter to get the bill. We finally went to the front to leave, which got the attention of our server and prompted him to get our bill. This is a shame, because it tainted the rest of the experience, which was quite good.
