My third time dining here so I tried something new :the prawn and a coconut sauce. Keep in mind that I have food allergies and cannot eat garlic or onion. So the options are limited.
The first two trips I had the butter chicken and was very pleased. So my expectations for the prawn were high. The prawn we disappointing. More like medium-size shrimp. The preparation did not allow for proper expansion joint cooking so the shrimp texture was too firm and the balance of sauce to Shrimp was off. The naan was delicious. I found myself craving vegetables I would return again to the restaurant but for the butter chicken again.

Very attentive service. Special care was taken to respect my food restrictions. The rice was fragrant and light, in contrast to the creamy texture of the butter chicken sauce which I take mild.
I carried home a VEGAN CHICK PEA dish for a client along with their delicious Naan- buttery, fresh and chewy.

Despite the dining room being sparsely attended, but with one large party that seemed to take all of the service resources. So, the service was quite slow. Yet the waiter was attentive to my food restrictions and made an excellent suggestion of “butter chicken “ cubed Breast of chicken in a rich and spicy tomato-based sauce. With a side of delicate fragrant rice and naan. A very tasty meal, save the tea Marsala which was poorly executed, thin-bodied with barely a dash of spice. I would return again for the food.

Excellent service and very good food. Very large portions - we all took extra home. Interesting mix of folks in shorts to folks in ties and dresses. This 7pm - 9pm on a Friday night. Waiters and staff very nicely dressed so I was surprised at how casual some of the diners were.

After desperately searching for a small taste of authentic South-Asian flavors in the likes of Rasika, Bombay Club, and other (in my opinion) outrageously high-end DC Indian restaurants, I stumbled onto this hidden gem in Tyson's Corner. The staff greets you with respect and maintains a high level of service throughout the experience while not being too attentive - which I've always preferred. The restaurant decor and dim lighting combined with spacious and varied seating arrangements invite conversation and comfort to your dining experience. And like the overall experience itself, the food doesn't try to do too much, but exceeds all expectations. Having now dined at many Indian restaurants not only throughout India, but also various Indian diaspora's around the world, I hold the simplicity and flavorful food of this restaurant with high regard. Oh, and the portions are very fair. If you live in DC like I do, this is worth a drive. Perhaps this overtly positive review is a result of being disconnected from proper Indian cuisine for what seems like months now. In any case, I certainly plan on visiting again.

Food was very good, service was so-so. Since when are all Tandoori dishes considered appetizers? (Seemed odd to us, but the waiter insisted... When we asked for coffee at the end of the meal, he told us "we don't have coffee"; didn't suggest any alternatives!

Service was unusually bad that day. Usually they have great service but that day wasn't their day! Server was unknowledgeable. Garlic Nan was delivered alittle bit over burned and didn't have usual parsley topping. Cocktails were awful! Too strong. And when we complained, it wasn't taken off the bill. So we had to ask for it to be taken off. To make it clear the usual manager wasn't there that day. Maybe this was the problem.

Being a person from India, it's very hard to find a truly authentic Indian restaurant that makes food like "mom used to make" bu let me tell you. Bombay Tandoor delivers. The food is fresh, hot, tasty and authentic. We went for lunch during the week and was very surprised to see goat curry on the menu, that's usually reserved for the weekend buffet. Excellent variety regarding choices of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, spicy and non-spicy food. The butter chicken was one of the best I've ever eaten and the Chicken Tikka Masala didn't disappoint either. The chana was very tasty. Only one thing I would ask yourself is, is the food really worth $14 a person for a Indian buffet lunch. For me, not so much. I will go there every few months, but I certainly won't be a regular.

This was my first time at this place. I am used to going to Rasika in DC. Rasika is still my #1 spot, but for the value and quality of service, this place was great. The butter chicken was excellent so were the appetizers as well. I give this place a solid 3 stars.

Our group of 15 guests were pleased with the quality of Indian dishes ordered and the service provided. It is definitely one of the better class Indian Restaurants around Wash Metro area. The menu items are traditional North Indian and not too spicy and oily. Good ambiance. Menu prices are not too high and not low also.
