Yuck! STAY AWAY. Greasy food, stale and cooked three or four days ago. Bathrooms stink. Manager is rude and un-attentive. I went into the bathroom and saw that the waiter did not wash his hands before leaving, so I am not sure how they pass the basic hygiene standards. In the adjoining room, there was an event going on of some kind. Loud noise, disturbing to the other diners eating quietly outside. I noticed people were self-serving alcohol of the "hard" kind..not sure if they have a license to do so either ?, but I guess they try to get away with it one way or the other just like they do with their sub-standard hygiene standards. I wouldn't be surprised if they get close down someday. Very poor value for money.
Avoid for all the right reasons. Yes, it's in a claustrophobic basement with steep stairway. The food is mediocre, the price is high, the service is slow. Wish I had my money back. Still recovering from the whole "dining" experience.
Best Indian resturant I have ever been too. – I have been going to Tandoor for many years. This restaurant is my favorite. I travel long way just to eat here. I love the staff, manager. They are very nice. i would highly recommend this restaurant.
Triangle's Worst indian restaurant – I have tried every Indian restaurant in the restaurant by far this one is the worst.
Food is really bad. Tried lunch and dinner both... but to no avail. Dinner Buffet had frozen mixed vegetable(Carrots, beans and peas) as the only vegeterian entree.
Service was even worse. The Manager/owner? was very rude and did not care much.
Never Ever going back there again!!
Never again – Made a booking for a hall with them, but did not honor the booking. Gave it to someone else for more money and did not even bother to let me know. Terrible attitude.
Bad Attitude! – I really wish the male waiters here get some training in customer service. They have people with very bad attitude. I really couldn't tolerate their high headedness for more than 10 mins. We ordered only an appetizer which tasted okay. I dont think I am ever going bk there! THere are a lot of other gr8 options here which are all a good value for money!
Great Food, Great Service – Great Location and great Food. I have been visiting Tandoori Resturant since 1999 when I first moved to NC from Illinois. I started going to this resturant for lunch buffet that are afforadable in price and good in variety and became a loyal customer for all other occassions due to great customer service and friendly attitude at the place. I have attended several parties at the location also and all in all have been very satisfied with the quality of food and service for the price.
Never again... to get such an arrogant treatment – usually lunch buffet is reasonable here but dinner is a nightmare ..
Staff at this place are not concerned about customer satisfaction and they don't even ask if it is bad. At the end, after eating bad tasting, half cooked, pricey food if you don't hand over a handsome tip.... get ready to defend your self in a fight with them(You don't have to start it though).
I would never go there again....
By the way I am giving the two stars for the lunch .. for dinner I would give -5
Best Indian Restaurant with Excellent Service, Food and Price!!! Highly Recommended! – Fantastic restaurant! I don' know what others are referring to but this place has delicious and very authentic tasting food! The service is fabulous, the owner and waiters are very friendly, the place is very clean, the price is very good (especially the buffet) and I can't stress enough that this is definitely a place to go if you like friendly service and excellent Indian food!
P.S. We drive from the Clayton area to Durham to go to this restaurant at least once every week to 2 weeks. It's definitely worth the drive.
We are from Canada and everytime we come here (we do short 6 months stints in for work) we make it a point to come here!!!
Another point I wanted to make is in reference to some of the negative comments. I think those that gave 1 to 2 stars all stated that they have been to this restaurant several times but still don't like it. My question is why go back so many times if the food is truly that awful? Wouldn't once or twice be enough to determine whether you like the food?
Not good – Indian food is my absolute favorite, but this place wasn't that great. I went for the lunch buffet. The waitress and other staff were really nice, but the food was below average. Other places I've eaten in the area are better. Small vegetarian selection/ bland greasy dishes. I only ate 1 1/2 plates- which is rare for me at a buffet as I normally would pig out! I would not recommend this place or go there again and will be trying other Indian restuarants in the Raleigh/ Durham area! Thanks
