In Durham for 5 days and tried 5 different Indian restaurants. This place had decent food and average service. If I am in the area again, will definitely not waste my time here. I would rank this restaurant #4 out of the 5 that I...More

The food is slightly different than most Indian food I have eaten. Apparently, Indian food is slightly different depending on what part of the area the cook is from. I was surprised by how different the food tasted, but it was not bad. Good service!

This place has a buffet for lunch. The variety looks great. Beef, chicken and veggie options. They even have somosas. However, the food is all too spicy for me and the dishes just didn't taste very good. The fried chicken was too tough to stick...More

Greeted at the door in a more friendly manner than often is the case with Indian Restaurants as most tend to be very reserved (often giving an unfriendly vibe). However, the apparent proprietor was very warm and friendly as was our waitstaff. I wish I...More

I have the lunch buffet at Tandoor 3-4 times a month and it's always good. It's a large buffet with green salad, yogurt dressing, Indian pickles, onion chutney, mint chutney, tamarind sauce, tandoor chicken, 2-3 other chicken dishes, sometimes goat/lamb, several veggie dishes including sag,...More
