Rated among the top 20 in Western New York, this Williamsville restaurant, located near the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, offers traditional Indian cuisine for diners looking for something different. The restaurant, in business for more than a decade, has a range of vegetarian dishes and your choice of spicing from very hot to mild. Dinner mains include murg maharaja , roasted chicken breast in an onion, poppy seed, cashew and spice gravy and vegetarian offerings like aloo tikki , grilled patties of spiced mashed potatoes mixed with green peas.
0 stars probably. The food is below average, but service sucks especially if you are from the indian subcontinent. If you have not tasted real Indian food then you probably may not have issue. The rice isundercooked and the dishes are too creamy.
Went there for for restaurant week 2010- Definantly not worth the price!!!
The vegetable dinner was 3 scoops of vegetables in sauces (you counld not find the vegatables) a scoop of rice, flat bread , dip and rice pudding. Should have been less than a $10.00 meal. The meat plate was small very dry pieces of Lamb sausage, a chicken in sauces (very little pieces of chicken) and a lentle mixture - also should have been less than $10.00. If this was a way to impress and bring back new customers, they missed by a long shot. Never again!
Went there for the lunch buffet. Bad idea! First of all the food was all mushy, the place was literly dead. (no customers) and i almost barfed right after I ate there. Will NEVER go back! I never had Indian food before this and I never will again. Thanks for the taste of India...=(
Pros: Nice atmosphere, good wait staff and manager, good naan.
Cons: Being Indian, I would have to say that this food isn't very good or authentic. The veggie pakora served as an appetizer is always soggy and overcooked. Also, the prices are high with small portions.
This was our first visit to Tandoori.
The atmosphere and the food was mediocre. The curry was cold and watery. The one redeeming quality: the bread was hot, crispy, and tasty.
The waiter, an American, who fit the sterotype of an obnoxious highschool jock, had a chip on his shoulder for some reason and served us plenty of thinly concealed disdain and attitude.
Well, that left plenty of sour taste in our mouths. We tipped a normal amount, but I wonder if we should have not tipped at all.
We won't go back there again, even if we get a different waiter. We don't need to pay to be treated like that.
The dishes are simply wonderful! I've sampled many items throughout the menu, and have found each to be distinctive and flavorful! Favorites include the Murg Kadai and the Navratan Korma. The dining room is nicely appointed and comfortable, and the service superb. Extra touches include the rose petal fingerbowl and the longstem rose for the ladies. Also, their selection of domestic and imported beers from around the world is worth mentioning! In addition, the owner will briefly visit your table to make certain that everything is entirely to your liking.
I have had the opportunity to visit many Indian restaurants in the US and Eastern Europe, and have found this one to be one of the most authentic, and absolute best!
This place gets talked up more than any other in this area. But the food is, quite frankly, not that good. Most of the food is from the tandori oven. I don't recall any decent curries at all. I go down Transit a few blocks and eat at Kabob & Curry. Much better food.
After reading all the good reviews about this place, we decided to have lunch during our trip to niagara. We decided to have buffet.
I regret that I went to this place. The food was absolutely bland. There was not much choice. Pakooras were cold and seemed like they were sitting there for couple of days.
Service was horrible too. No personality. The waiter didn't even offer the bread. Had to ask for the bread twice.
I will not recommend this place to anyone!
Tandoori's is one of the top 20 restaurants in Western NY, an area known all over the country for it's high quality international foods. Tandoori's vegetable fritters won the Best Vegetarian Food award at the 2006 Taste of Buffalo which I myself attended. They were outstanding! The restaurant itself has a quiet atmosphere filled with a deep aroma of mild spices which are both intoxicating and calming. Service is always fast and friendly. Indian food is unlike any other and in my opinion, Tandoori's is the best.
