When we first showed up they said they didn’t have our reservation even though I had made it weeks in advance and confirmed it. They sat us an extra table they had so it was fine at first. After about 10 minutes of sitting we hadn’t had anyone come to our table or even bring us menus but my date and I were just enjoying each others company and I’m not one to complain or make a fuss. Finally we got our menus and were able to order but after an hour still had not gotten our food, gotten a water refill, or even seen our waitress. We noticed some very big parties coming in so I figured they were just scrambling to get them all seated. The next time we saw our waitress was when she came over to ask us to MOVE to a crappy random table in the corner of the restaurant because a group that had come in did not need but WANTED the table we were seated at.... we got up and moved to the other desolate table for approximately 2 minutes before we realized it had been over an hour since we placed our food order, we were starving, and our water (that we finally got refills for after moving) tasted like yogurt so we got up and booked it out of there to go get In n Out instead. Wasn’t the best Valentine’s Day I’ve ever had but my date and I definitely had fun laughing about the whole horrible experience on our way to finally get some food after

Great food and a wonderful atmosphere. They have a belly dancer who performs (this was a Saturday evening) that really adds to the ambiance. Service was great.

We spent the evening in celebration of a birthday and enjoyed every minute. The food was exceptional and made to order as far as "heat" perfectly. Loved the soft music - what a change of pace from everywhere else that has music blasting so loud you can't hear conversation or a TV blaring! Our service was also impeccable - our server made the event very special in how we were treated. This will be our new "go-to" place!!

A superb blend of perfectly seasoned food and exquisite decor makes this restaurant a must go to experience. This restaurant if you're a true foodie should be on your bucket list....simply amazing. I had the lamb Briyani and my girlfriend had the Chicken Tikka Masala. Also, they have awesome little appetizers if you love lamb like me try the Lamb Kebab and the Tandoori Naan bread was perfectly paired with our dishes.

Hope to go back soon when I'm in town.

Great find. As good as the best Indian restaurants we have experienced in London,
Tokyo, or Mumbai, or New Delhi.

Our initial signal should have been the fact that our reserved table was not set up and the place was obviously bustling with patrons and a lot of take out diners waiting for orders.
The host was a lovely woman who tried to get us set up but was unable to prevent our disastrous evening.
We received drinks within the first 10 minutes, but those with cocktails had to wait 7 minutes longer and the Long Island Iced Tea looked like a Tequila Sunrise. We ordered naan initially but waited 25 minutes for a basket of 2 which was consumed between 5 hungry people within seconds. It was delicious and hot!
I had to find our server to get our order taken. There were only 2 servers and our was also bartender and helped in the kitchen too. After an hour and 15 minutes from entering we got up to leave as dinner had not yet come. Our server rushed over to tell us that it was ready and encouraged us to stay.
We did. Our food was not hot but at that point we were famished and the flavors were good. Our server was very apologetic but the damage was done.
The belly dancer was energetic and circled the room but the music was much too loud and hurt our ears.
The bussers were both hustling and tried to attend as much as they could with water refills etc. They were also apologetic.
We received a basket of naan for free because of our wait....big deal...we won't be returning.
My husband said the bathroom was not clean.
Also a good indicator of a poorly run establishment.
We heard the owner was out of the country.
No surprise!

Delicious food - best naan bread ever. Tandoori chicken and chicken tikka masala were incredible, just the right amount of spice and perfectly seasoned. Free chai tea, yum. Great place, we'll be back for sure!

Our server was not very attentive. There was another server who appeared to be more attentive to her customers. There is a woman belly dancing to 4 songs on the hour. She was dancing for tips. It was a little distracting. One song would have been cute. 4 songs was too many.
We waited 45 minutes after ordering until we got our food. The service and the food were slow. But when we got the food, it was very good. Everybody ate everything on their plates. The food is worth the wait.

If you have never enjoyed Indian cuisine, this is the place to start. The friendly, helpful staff guides you to dishes you'll like, food arrives hot (in more ways than one), and the tastes are bright and sparkling. Go with a group and dinner becomes a tasting party. Small but thoughtful wine l list, and a few beers from India make for adventurous sipping.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Tandiri Times. We did forget that the portions are quite large and ordered too much food. On the other hand Indian food makes great leftovers. We had the tandoori chicken which was very flavorful.
We were there on a Saturday evening and there was a belly dancer for entertainment.

This is a very good India restaurant and well worth the trip to find it. We love Indian food and this place really has some excellent specials from Northern India. And order the Mango lassi..one of the best I ever had as was the mango Icecream for dessert. The luncheon specials were a great value.

Went as a group of 14 ladies for a retirement evening dinner. Not our first time here, been as a group for Christmas parties and birthdays. Also my husband and I enjoy a date night here. The food is awesome, never had a disappointing meal ever. The staff are just great, friendly, helpful and accommodating. Nice evening out.

I was excited about trying another well reviewed Indian food restaurant in the valley and sadly I was really disappointed. The ambience was very bland. We were sat a a 2 top right next to the wall which was really dirty and we were right by the ice machine which is oddly located on the way to the bathroom. I almost jumped out of my seat when the machine filled due to the noise. The menu is quite extensive and they offer great descriptions, but for someone who loves Indian food I wanted to try the best dishes there and was guided to the beginner dishes. Needless to say the service was very lack luster, food was average and sadly I won't be back. My business stays loyal to a different Indian restaurant in the valley.

I love this place, this has the best Indian food I've ever had. The Korma had a good flavor, creamy and the right amount of spice. The only (minor) thing I don't like about it is that, while most Indian food places serve rice with their meals, this place charges extra for it. Mind you, the rice is excellent and has good flavor, but it would be nice if it came with the meal, not be charged extra $3 for it.
