We are visiting from our of town, and had eaten here before and really enjoyed it, so we had a reservation for Tuesday October 12 at 7:00. After a long day of walking around end enjoying Victoria, we were very much looking forward to our dinner. When we arrived at the restaurant it was closed. No sign on the door, no email or notice that the restaurant was going to be closed that night - NOTHING! I tried calling and the phone just rang land rang - no voicemail, no answering machine explaining why they were closed. I was very disappointing. We can understand that there may have been circumstances that caused them to be closed that night, but given that we had a reservation, we should have been made aware earlier in the day, and at the very least, a sign on the door would have been nice. We are very disappointed in our experience with Sizzling Tandoor.
Food was generally bland. One salad served with old lettuce. Naan bread was good, as was one curry, but overall just fair.
When you walk in it may not look like much but the food is fantastic. We fully enjoyed all our dishes. Icing on the cake is the friendly attentive & charming service.
The greatest service! Drinks were great. Food was excellent and a lot.
What a fantastic experience. Booked to celebrate our anniversary. Service was amazing, food was exciting and the drinks were so creative and delicious.
Huge menu and very knowledgeable staff. You feel your food is lovingly prepared. Generous portions. A bit away from the tourist restaurants. It was a good choice.
We usually order from here but we usually get it to go.
This time we decided to eat in and we really enjoyed the food experience.
Great food!! Amazing cocktails! And the service is superb!
Our table was waiting when we arrived to a very attentive service staff. The atmosphere was more urban casual then expected, but the space wasn't overcrowded nor too loud to be able to have it be personable.
Again, the service staff was really helpful with suggestion and everything ordered arrived promptly. For the price, the portions were reasonable and the flavour decent. It's not right up there with my aunt's curries but does hit the spot better than I am able to myself.
We were there many years ago, and since the renovation the place has a much nice ambience. The service was really good and the food was also really good. We'll definitely go back.
Fantastic Indian food with some fusion dishes that worked remarkably well! I never thought pasta and Parmesan would work so well with a butter chicken sauce, but it does!
The calamari pakora were also excellent. Really, everything was great.
The owner brought in a disabled lady and gave her a free meal at the buffet as well, so plus points there.
Always delicious and great service. I love and hate that it's so close to work. 10/10.
The food was delicious
Food was delicious, service was friendly and fast ⛄
Excellent as usual, server very diligent and polite and helpful
The best indian food in victoria. Service is great as well.
Overall, I found everything quite pleasant. Portions are large, so we restricted what we tried and both items were quite tasty and nicely spiced. Having spent time in South Africa and London, we’ve had some good and varied Indian experiences, so we were concerned that the local fare might not be good, but that is not the case for this restaurant. We will go back and try the Tandoor specialties next.
Great Monday deal of half off butter chicken. Delicious! This is the first time the bread did not come right away with dinner, but they were slammed in the kitchen with all the take out orders. Friendly and great waiter.
Awesome dinner! Nice ambience and great food.
Great food, prompt and friendly service. The ambiance was nice and the flavours were outstanding.
Service and food were great. It was a Saturday night so I understand how busy every staffs were :) but the service was prompt compared to it was a full house and correct orders!
Loved the butter chicken
This Indian food menu has lots of variety and new flavours as well as the standard delicious dishes. The cocktails are innovative too. Service was amazing the night we were there, our server went the extra mile.
Food was delicious and service was great. We had a wonderful dinner experience and will definitely be back!
Wow! Soooo yummy! Highly recommend.
Service was very good and friendly. I made a notation on Open Table we were celebrating our anniversary and the waitress brought us a cup of coconut ice cream to celebrate.
Everything was dirty - table, chairs, floor, dishes, silverware. Door was open so there was flies everywhere. It was gross.
We enjoyed this meal - mango chicken lamb Rogan Josh and butter chicken.
We had tandoori chicken. It was good but not great...I've had better. The naan was good. Waiter was friendly & knowledgeable. Overall, not bad, not great.
Very accommodating to our reservation for a large group. The food tasted great, and people said the food had improved since their previous visit. We will definitely be returning again soon.
The food was flavorful and delicious. Restaurant is friendly and clean. We'll go again soon.
Other than a screaming toddler for an hour at a table nearby, it was perfect :) (Out of the restaurant's control obviously.) Food was absolutely delicious and service was flawless. We come often for take out or dine in and it is always great.
Great staff excellent
Great service and DELICIOUS food. Be sure to get a sizzling dish!
We went as a party of 10 and asked for a good variety of food to be served. The server chose a wonderful selection of dishes that met our needs at a very reasonable price. Great night out thoroughly enjoyed by all ten of us, with really excellent service.
Nishant is always very pleasant to deal and he severed us this evening. All the dishes were well presented and great tasting. Comfortable setting and we enjoyed a relaxed meal with friends.
An excellent restaurant with excellent food and great service. Wish there was a bit more rice, but had enough butter chicken for leftovers and it tasted just as good the next day.
Good food, quantity good, spice level as recommended good. We,will be back.
Great venue - delicious food and great service!
