We haven't been to this restaurant in many years because we no longer live in the area. We were not disappointed.
The food was high quality. We did something we usually don't do at a restaurant and had the buffet this time. We wanted to try everything that was offered and it was delicious.
We will certainly come back when we are in this area again.
Tolerable, but nothing special. My husband had the buffet, and enjoyed the Tandoori chicken and chicken tikka masala. The vegetarian options were mostly cream based and did not appealing (I always order the Indian buffet, but passed on this one) Instead, I ordered chana masala off the menu, and was quite disappointed. The tomato base tasted like canned tomato paste.
Additionally, the $18 charge for the limited buffet (3 meat dishes, 3 veggie dishes) was way overpriced.
The good service and ambiance was great.
It was just ok, nann was fair. Tandori chicken decent but no real depth in flavor. Other diners ordered chicken tika and it was just ok.I would say overall Nelam in Middletown is superior.
Quiet ambiance. Good family run restaurant. Basic, but very tasty Indian food. BYOB!
Food full of flavor . Services staff very friendly and helpful
I have been going to Tandoor E India restaurant for over 20 years and the food continues to be consistently good. The first time I visited the restaurant I ordered from the menu, but later found that the buffet is a better choice because of the variety to sample. There are numerous appetizers. The lamb dish and the chicken tikka masala are both very tasty. They also have tandoori chicken which is always tender. Tandoor E India is a local favorite of mine and I hope they remain open for many more years.
Tandoor E is tucked away in a strip mall so you're not really going to go there for the atmosphere but, if you like Indian food, you'll be happy to dine there. This restaurant is clearly a neighborhood favorite but doesn't get overly chaotic (Indian food is still not high up on the list of dining preferences for most people). The food is standard Indian fare prepared authentically and pleasingly presented. The owners are absolutely delightful and service is very good. The buffet, while small, is varied and complete enough to satisfy vegetarians and carnivores alike. Prices are quite affordable. We'll definitely be making a return visit to this charming little restaurant.
The restaurant was clean and comfortable. The service was good. The selection of different foods was very good. Last but not least, the food was very good.
Good food, great service in a strip mall Indian restaurant. We were full after appetizers' BYOB
