Very pathetic. Very very bad experience . Food was to bad and no body was serving the food . Came out few folks without eating
Good food, the bindi was the best I ever had. Waiter talked a lot but was friendly. I would return.
So glad we visited. Very hospitable and excellent food and service. The Aloo Gobi was the best I've ever had!
Terrible, I made a reservation through Open Table, it was confirmed and then when I got there they said they were not taking customers that night as they had a tour group in.
I asked if we could do takeout and they said come back in 20 minutes, I gave them my number to call when ready, they never called, went back an hour later, was still not ready for another 10 minutes. Got it home and it was terrible and not even the right order. Very disappointing evening and it could have all been avoided if Open Table had not accepted my reservation for that night.
We arrived, party of 12. Carpets were dirty. It was dinner time and the lunch buffet was half broken down and the area was dirty. We asked for ice water and were told they were out of ice. Bathrooms were dirty. We left. I wouldn't eat there. Bad service even worse ambience.
Chicken Curry is perfection. Fresh Naan. They don't have iced tea, but the hot Indian tea is a wonderful complement to your meal.
One of the most disappointing visits to a restaurant I can remember. They took our order, we waited nearly an hour to be fed, they forgot half our dishes and claimed that the orderer had left without telling them the full range (this was 8pm), the chicken was like leather, they then didn't replace the things we had originally ordered and then came out asking to write down our credit number because their machine had broken. Just an awful comedically bad evening at a restaurant and I would strongly, strongly recommend that you don't go to it.
I was the only one in the place! Food was good, but nothing memorable. Had the full attention of the server.
The food was outstanding. We had a bit of a communication issue with the server, but overall, it was a great experience. I would definitely recommend!
It was okay, nothing to really rave about or complain about.
I chose this restaurant at random because it was close to my hotel and I wanted Indian food. Since I didn't know the area this made sense. The walk to the restaurant was easy, but I passed many others which may have been a better choice. Tandoori Mahal was quite when I got there. Only one other table had diners. Given that there was no one else there service could have been better. The food was acceptable, but nothing to write home about. I will not return.
I'm a frequent diner at the Indian Clay Oven restaurant on Clement St., SF, the original restaurant from the chain which Tandoori Mahal belongs to. Unfortunately the quality of food in these two places is totally different - while India Clay Oven is a food quality benchmark on my scale of Indian restaurants in SF, Tandoori Mahal is just an eatery, the food quality is average at best. Besides the food quality improvements the place needs remodeling or at least general cleanup.
The food was tasty and professionally served. Service was friendly and prompt. On the house desert was a nice touch!
Open on Christmas! That's why we went. Curries were excellent--rich, complex. Especially liked the salmon with spinach dish. Naan warm, buttery and satisfying. Portions were not especially generous; 1 dish=1 person. Service was so off it was comical. Maybe there was some key person missing due to the holiday. We had to order our drinks 3 times and they still got it wrong. On the other hand, when we ordered an extra naan, it came fairly quickly. I'd go back for korma and tikka masala though.
Decent buffet. The naan was good. They only had one chicken dish (with a cream sauce) and they used tandoori chicken as it's base.
