My wife and I came here for dinner on a Tuesday night. We arrived at 5:30 and the restaurant was just opening so it was not very crowded. We started with an order of the Samosas and our server brought over complimentary pappadams with chutneys. For our entrees, we ordered the daal makhani, the channa masala, the chicken tikka masala, the saag with corn and an order of roti.
The portions were extremely generous and we really liked the food, but were not big fans of the channa masala as it was made with black tea. The spice level was just right for us- flavorful, but not too spicy.
Overall, we left with ample leftovers and we will certainly be back.
Food was very good, but not spicy even though we asked for spicy. When I caught the servers attention I asked how we could soucevit up & he brought a wonderful spicy garlic sauce. Also, we didn’t know we could not take home the thali leftovers we had not finished...that was odd...
First time eating here...we'll be back!! Loved the butter chicken!
Bombay Tandoor has a great lunch buffet with lots of vegeterian options!
Outstanding!!! Nothing else to say! Fast service, great food and great company. Finally had curry goat and it was delish!!!
The Butter Chicken is the best in the DMV area.
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.
I thought it was bad service I thought it was very loud and noisy also the food was not good at all it tasted all the same .
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.
