    I'm a frequent diner at the Indian Clay Oven restaurant on Clement St., SF, the original restaurant from the chain which Tandoori Mahal belongs to. Unfortunately the quality of food in these two places is totally different - while India Clay Oven is a food quality benchmark on my scale of Indian restaurants in SF, Tandoori Mahal is just an eatery, the food quality is average at best. Besides the food quality improvements the place needs remodeling or at least general cleanup.

    Open on Christmas! That's why we went. Curries were excellent--rich, complex. Especially liked the salmon with spinach dish. Naan warm, buttery and satisfying. Portions were not especially generous; 1 dish=1 person. Service was so off it was comical. Maybe there was some key person missing due to the holiday. We had to order our drinks 3 times and they still got it wrong. On the other hand, when we ordered an extra naan, it came fairly quickly. I'd go back for korma and tikka masala though.

    Decent buffet. The naan was good. They only had one chicken dish (with a cream sauce) and they used tandoori chicken as it's base.

    My brother passed away recently and we gathered for a memorial service in San Francisco. We lived in India as children and Indian food was one of his favorite cuisines so I looked for for an Indian restaurant that could accomodate a crowd. (We were a group of about 40.) Not only could they handle the crowd, they helped me with the planning, advising me on the menu. The food and service were both excellent. My husband commented that he never thought he liked tandoori chicken until he ate the chicken at Tandoori Mahal. Other very good dishes included dal makhani, mattar paneer and rogan josh. The pakoras were heavenly. We were served family style and the staff paced the serving of the food just perfectly. An excellent meal all around!

    The food was really good...some of the best indian I've had. We ordered mild and it was spicy, but not too spicy. The ambiance wasn't fantastic, but we wanted good food and definately got that. It was very reasonably priced.

    The food was excellent, we didn't actually get what we thought we ordered, but we were quite happy with the food we were served. The restaurant itself is pleasant, quiet and causal. We enjoyed our dinner there.
