Bit of a hole in the wall experience. Food was average. Service was very friendly. We went hoping for much better experience given the stellar reviews.

Food and service were great. It would have been nice to know that the restaurant was BYOB. Serving sizes exceptionally large.

This was my first time dining at Tandoor Char House. Everyone was welcoming; the restaurant, though smallish, was very clean and the staff was very good. The food was terrific and I can't wait to go back. Great place and easy street parking, too.

Its the blandest Indian food I have had in a long time. Most of the items we ordered lacked the right balance of flavors and felt tasteless. The breads were alright, but nothing special. I was most disappointed with the tandoori grilled items though, as I feel that a restaurant calling itself 'Tandoor Char House' needs to at least get tandoori food right. Very disappointed.

Decent place for byob Indian food. The sauces and curry were in point. I had the lamb tikka masala and it was pretty good, but the meat wasn’t tender enough in my opinion. Overall ok though. Price was decent for the area, and nothing beats byob!

The servers were very friendly. The wait from order to eating was 30 plus minutes. The cracker appetizer with sauces, paneer naan, tikka masala sauce and mango ice cream was good. The rice and chicken was dry. The price of the meal was definitely reasonable. However, we would not recommend this place or come back again.

The staff was very helpful and sweet! Food was flavorful and fantastic! So many options to choose from and the portions are great for their price. Would absolutely return! The tikka sauce never, never disappoints. For all things grilled Indian- this is the place to start ✨

Food was really quite good
Mistakenly chose to eat outside, this area is down the street and had I realized we were going to get takeout brought to us, I would have opted to eat inside.
So everything was packaged in paper, kind of messy and certainly very slow.
The wait staff was very nice, just overworked and since I'm sure his setup was in response to Covid I will give it a pass.
Will definitely go back again, next time inside

We ate out at the “outdoor patio” area on Schubert outside of Sapori. The food was excellent and the server our quite funny and extremely personable.
We enjoyed the Aloo Masala appetizer, the tamarind chutney, and the lamb saag. The beef samosas are a game changer. Order those with the tikka masala sauce. You’ll thank me later.
Definitely looking forward to ordering or visiting them in person again soon!
