Have been going here for over 10 years. The business did change hands a couple years ago but the food has remained the same. The buffet is a bargain and the service is above average. Not really sure what else one could ask for given...More

Quite limited buffet. Some dishes are ok, other have very little taste. Samosa were spongy and pakora were chewy. They do not serve beer. 12$ for the buffet, 5$ for a mango lassi, more or less the same price as Sitar, but less quality.

Very friendly staff and a typical urban neighborhood eatery. My chicken tikka masala was good but not great. Felt like it lacked salt or the depth of taste typically assoc. with this dish. The Naan was excellent. The buffet might have been a better choice?...More

I am a huge fan of Tandoor India. My "Indian Friends" used to tell me they order from a small place in University City. Finally I asked and went. The place is great. The staff loves their customers, the food is good and the renovations...More

I ate the buffet here for lunch yesterday and it was amazing. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful in getting drinks and coordinating plates. They even went so far as telling me before I asked that there are discounts for students ( on...More

They have virtually everything you'd want in a buffet. Even the vegetarian selection was great. The non veg had a chicken curry, tandoori chicken and a mutton curry (other than chicken biryani). The food was good for the price.
