I was very impressed. The owner/manager and his wife are very hands on, congenial, engaging, and always circulating about,. The service was prompt, attentive, and very professional. The restaurant was small but decent and clean and well kept. BUT THE FOOD . . . OH MY!! The food was fantastic. The chicken tandoori, juicy, tasty, well marinated, and perfection. The... More

Natraj is absolutely one of our favorite places in Long Beach. We go there every chance we get. I haven't found a dish I didn't like. The owners are always there are very nice and friendly. If you are in the area definitely make this a stop! Try the Tikka Masala or Malia!

Good ambiance, Great service , Tasty and traditional Indian food, I tasted Garlic Naan,samosas, very tasty, affordable price. They give discount coupons occasionally. We tasted vegetarian and my friend tasted non vegetarian both tasted awesome. It is worth visiting this restaurant If you have a craving for Indian food.

My husband and I stumbled upon Natraj while shopping on 2nd Street in Belmont Shore. We tried the $9.95 buffet lunch which was fantastic. The buffet selection is slightly smaller than other Indian buffets and did not come with samosas. In addition to a salad bar, cantaloupe cubes, and watermelon cubes, there were several chicken dishes - tandoori chicken, chicken... More

If you like Indian food, this is a great place. The owners and the staff are super nice and accommodating. They have a buffet for lunch with lots of options. I enjoy the Tandoori chicken and chicken Tikki Masala. Their sauces and spinach recipes are delicious, but watch out for the green hot sauce. I enjoy coming here. You can... More

Recently raised lunch buffet price to $9.95/person, drink extra. The salad options have almost nearly disappeared. But, they still offer at least three chicken options [one is always tandoori], and at least 2 vegis, and a rice. The naan is good. The garlic naan can be salty. On the whole, a very average place to stop for a quick and... More

From the Naan to the Masala Chicken and the Biryani Rice dishes the food was very good, although I would recommend asking them to make it spicier which they will be glad to do. The Kingfisher Indian beer was also good. Very reasonable prices and good service.

This was the worst Indian meal I have ever eaten. Obviously cooked to the American taste. If you are British do not eat here. Pappadoms burnt. Rice cold. All dishes were overly salty and inedible.
