My daughter was in from California and wanted Indian food. We are able to walk to Tandori Chef 2 from home, so off we went. A bonus, by the way, since parking has become so difficult in downtown Maplewood. I have no complaints. The service was very good as was the food. The food was plentiful. We were able to... More

I wish this place were less expensive, as I love Indian cuisine. I have been here several times and each time I am here, the buffet is advertised, but not available (not sure why). This forces us to eat off the menu, which although extensive is also quite expensive. A small bowl of vegetarian chickpeas in a yogurt sauce with... More

My family and I order from here and prefer it over the local options closer to home. We have to order more than $35 to get delivery but that's not an issue. The other night though, I ordered, told it may be up to an hour to receive food. I was fine with that to avoid packing 3 kids into... More

Welcomed like family Table area ready at 7:30PM. Reservation was 8:30PM that is service. Reservation for 20 that expanded to 25. Great tolerance for roving photographer/videographer. My family loves to practice our Indian cooking and restaurant visiting. The food was some of the best in seasoning, flavor, prepared and presented. The service was attention to detail through the entire three... More

We had eaten at this restaurant several times over the years, under two different names, and it was always poor to mediocre. This month we have eaten there twice, and it was positively brilliant both times. The food is now very spicy in an authentic way, without having to say so. With great Indian food, you continue to enjoy the... More

We had the shrimp Korma and Daal fry. The daal fry is not actually fried but is yellow lentils in a creamy sauce. It was buttery. Of the two... More
