Pleasing decor, family friendly, attentive service. First Indian restaurant I've seen that serves cocktails. Appetizers seemed a bit pricey, but entrees weren't too expensive and portions were more than expected.

Food was good overall, but seemed very salty, esp. the chana masala. I enjoyed the veg. biryani. Vegan and kid friendly.

The lunch buffet did not have as many choices of some others in the general area, such as Minerva, but the quality of everything was consistently very good. It is a short walk from the restaurant to the Kentland movie theatres.

Sophisticated environment matched by cuisine. My daughter and I try to visit every month or two, and we bring home the receipts so we can track what we had each visit. The menu is very deep and offers so many things I've not seen elsewhere, including many varieties of naan and some killer curries and appetizers.

We visited Tandoori Nights using a Groupon Now deal. The restaurant was buzzing with activity so that is always a good sign. One glance at the menu, and we noticed that the prices were a little higher than some other Indian restaurants, but it's not outrageous. After tasting the food, however, we forgot about prices. The curry was superb. The vindaloo was bright and spicy. It is always awesome to take a break from bland, salty American food and try something bursting with natural spices.

We've been going to this Restaurant on and off since it opened. Today we came for lunch and we were totally alone for a good 15 minutes. That made us a tad nervous as we'd read the management had changed. There was no going back, however, as we had a coupon that was expiring. Our server was very young but very knowledgeable. We ordered the Navratan Korma (my particular favorite) and two curry dishes. Everything was very tasty and the Naan was crisp and delicious. Excellent rice. We had plenty to take home for later - smaller portions all round with an extra family member - and all the entrees tasted even better. No complaints at all except for the volume level of the music. Why do restaurants insist in playing music so loud that it's hard to have a pleasant conversation. It was turned down, thankfully.
