Hands down our favorite Indian place in town. From the naan with the dips,to the saffron rice. Must admit I always order the Chicken Tikka Masala. So very tasty. The portions are large, usually take home half. Staff is friendly and very accomodating, preparing to your tastes. We truly love dining here.

Cafe Tandoor offers both good food and service. While there we ordered several dishes and all were good. The only criticism is they don't really achieve the spice levels we are accustom to in an Indian restaurant. Dishes we requested medium hot came out closer to mild and the traditional dishes such as vindaloo came out closer to medium. It... More

Love Tandoor. Large dining room. Super friendly staff. Great naan. Chicken tikka masala-superb! Just right amount of spices in all dishes. Each time is always superb. Namaste

Seven family members celebrating a special occasion went for dinner on a Sunday evening. Jeremy, our waiter, was very good at communicating and meeting our needs. The food was very fresh and made according to our spice level preference. I typically do not eat Indian food at restaurants, because mostly the food turns out too oily and upsets my stomach....

We have been to this place several times, and the food is consistently good, although nothing we've had would rate as outstanding. The vegetable samosas, lamb curry, and shrimp curry, were all good. The naan was the best we've had in a while. The service was also good, but not overly attentive. They do charge for the rice, which many... More

We visited Cafe Tandoor with friends on an early Thursday evening and had a wonderful dinner. We enjoyed Rogan Josh, various naans, raita, mixed pickle, and saffron rice before desserts of chai tea and Kheer. All tasted yummy!
