  • "The food was great. I did not feel claustrophobic in the restaurant. The materials/ ingredients tasted fresh and high quality. Everything was authentic tasting. The waiters brought rice as needed with no upcharge. Over all a nice spot. Nothing spectacular, but nice. I would definitely return again if I am looking for a good meal in Tysons."

    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Very pretty room, with polished wood floors, silk draperies, and high ceilings. Food and service live up to the setting. Tandoori lamb chops are tender, spicy. Lentil dishes are very good too."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I went with my parents and we enjoyed our meals. The chicken tikka masala my parents really enjoyed. I asked for chole (not on the menu) and they made it for me, which was great. The samosas were fabulous! And also the garlic naan and onion kulcha were really good as well."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "went on recommendation by an Indian friend. I was impressed with the food as I have not been a fan of Indian since my trip to Mumbai. Butter chicken, chicken biriyani were delicious. the mango ice cream dessert was good, even if it was frozen when served. I shall return or recommend if Indian Food is suggested in the Tysons area."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "My wife and I ordered kadhai chicken and muttar paneer. The food quality in my opinion was terrible. The muttar paneer tasted like it was freezer food. The service was great and they were very friendly. I don't know if I will ever go there again though."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Not as good as the other reviews imply. Have had better Indian food at other restaurants in DC area. Food was lukewarm and not generous servings."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "We were at BT for the lunch buffet. Overall it was very good but nothing special. The buffet selection is small, everything was tasty but nothing wow'd me, and I had to flag the waiter down several times."
    Dined on 10/10/2013
  • "Very nice lunch buffet with a good variety of food and spicing. Staff were attentive and friendly."

  • "Great find! Small but intimate strip mall restaurant with very good Indian food. Menu was large and the food was very good. Portions were ample, but not oversized."
    Dined on 2/16/2013
  • "Excellent food in fairly large portions. The Nan with garlic and onions was some of the best I have ever had. Most of all I was stunned at the reasonableness of the prices. My wife made reservations here for Valentine's Day as a last minute thing. We had never eaten there before but we found a new gem not to far from our home. We will be back!"

  • "Very gracious waitstaff, nice interior. Food was good but portions on the small side."

  • "Lovely weekend lunch/brunch. Depsite its somewhat obcure location, its worth the traffic on Rt 7."
    Dined on 2/2/2013
  • "The good was amazing! We were seated immediately because I made reservation in November 2012. The quite music played was orgin India music. The waiter was so amazing he explain each dish we chose. I had never ate lamp before in my life! And it was great. I will eat it from now on because of this restaurant. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone in the area. It was only two and hafls blocks from the hotel. It was easy to locate. We where here for the President Inguaral on Monday, January 21, 2013. The restaurant was not crowed at all. It did not overbook the place therefore you could eat in peace and not feel rushed to leave because they needed the table. When I come back I will bring my friends to this restaurant and dine!"

  • "The food was very good. The service prompt and competent but was marred by relentless upselling. The waiter told us at first that one bottle of wine could not be split among the five of us who were drinking. He urged additional bread and kept pushing us to order dessert even though we said we did not want any."
    Dined on 1/15/2013
  • "I ran across this Indian restaurant during a Google search and was looking for an Indian restaurant with ambiance. Many times Indian food comes from a take type place and it is often disappointing. Bombay Tandoor is an exception. The decor is pleasant and open. High ceilings and portraits of Indian nobility add to the simple but inviting space. The service was prompt and attentive. The menu is filled with a variety of Indian favorites and among my party, we sampled several options. All were expertly prepared and with just the right amount of spices. The naan bread was superb! I will definitely be back!"

  • "We went to Bombay Tandoor for a reunion; the staff was courteous; food was good; ambience was great as well."
    Dined on 12/14/2012
  • "Overall the food was fair, but I expected more from the restaurant. Reading the good customer reviews and viewing the website, I expected a good dining experience. I thought the price was high for the service and quality of the food. Their non-vegitarian items were slightly better. I won't go there again."
    Dined on 10/26/2012
  • "Wonderful food. Lots of spicy and complex flavors. I look forward to returning."
    Dined on 8/26/2012
  • "Very good food and service. I would definitely go back."

  • "Its an amazing place where I had a wonderful dinner with my fiance recently. The staff were very nice and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place."
    Dined on 7/29/2012
  • "This place can surprise, based on my eating there several times 1) The service is generally bad. You wait for the server, the drink you requested, the bread you want to use to eat your food, and just about everything else. 2) The food is really really quite good. The lunch buffet is rather traditional and certainly caters to the tastes of non-Indians, with features like the butter chicken, chicken tandoori, and . It's also a steal at $12. The dinner has a lot of options for those more acquainted with Indian cuisine- the chicken vindaloo is consistently delicious. The portions can be quite small, by American standards. 3) the ambiance is much nicer on the inside than the building suggests- you forget you're in an office building."

  • "The wait staff was exceptionally attentive. The food was good, although I had to return my eggplant from my "thali" as it tasted a bit off."
    Dined on 6/2/2012
  • "The food is outstanding. The chicken was prepared to perfection. The lamb chops were even better. The service is great. The ambiance is very nice. The service is top notch and very kid friendly. Can't wait to catch their lunch buffet."
    Dined on 5/6/2012
  • "Excellent food - one of the best. Service can vary...."
    Dined on 5/14/2012
  • "Food was some of the best Indian we have had locally. Lovely ambiance and noise level just enough to cover the noise of our children, while not too loud. Only "complaint" would be that it was a little pricy, but not out of line with the other Indian restaurants we have been recently."
    Dined on 5/4/2012
  • "The attentive and responsive service is notable compared to other restaurants in the price category. Our server was creative in finding small crockery that we could use to share tastes of the excellent dishes and just as quietly competent in cleaning up the ravages of a spilled drink. We look forward to more visits and further exploration of the tempting and extensive menu."
    Dined on 4/21/2012
  • "The restaurant is reliably good. Lots of Indian Americans who use is to host major events. The service is Ok. The owner took care of our table during this visit. He was responsive, just busy."
    Dined on 3/22/2012
  • "My first experience with Indian cuisine (and it was my birthday!), everything was fantastic, especially the lamb kebabs!"
    Dined on 8/30/2011
  • "Bombay Tandoor is one of the few fine vegetarian dining experiences I've experienced in the Washington, D.C. area. All of the vegetarian dishes we tried were delectable and pleasing to the eye, too. The service was attentive and timely. And it all came at a remarkable affordable rate. We'll definitely go back again!"
    Dined on 2/25/2012
  • "Good food. Service a little slow. Slow night and therefore quiet"
    Dined on 2/19/2012
  • "Food was great, service was a little slow (may have been due to holiday). I would recommend this place to all."
    Dined on 2/14/2012
  • "Hi, The food was average, but the gratuity charged for a group of 18, was just ridiculous (25% of the total biil). I am a frequent business traveller in this area since June, and have eaten much better food for less. Please make a note of this. Thanks, Sameer Shukla"
    Dined on 2/15/2012
  • "Consistent food at a fair price. Been there several times and it has delivered. Only caveat is they host many events for the Indian Community and the restaurant can be noisey. You may wish to call in advance to see if they have a large event booked"
    Dined on 12/30/2011
  • "Had the lunch buffet and it offered meat and vegetarian options. Decent Indian food."
    Dined on 11/30/2011
  • "Perhaps the best Indian food in Northern Virginia. Wonderfully fresh ingredients, great curries and chutneys, although the Vindaloo could have been a bit less tame."
    Dined on 12/26/2011
  • "Most of the restaurant was blocked off do to a reception, forcing us to sit by the door. Mid way through dinner a construction-like noise kept sounding and rattling the walls. This continued for about 5 minutes. Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken were too similar in taste. Vindaloo, Paneer, and Kabobs were good."
    Dined on 12/16/2011
  • "First visit a few months ago was approaching exceptional. Recent visit was less distinguished. Food is pretty good . . . sometimes very good. Service is okay but not notable."
