Eh eh, there's nothing else i can say – Food was greasy. Though if you can handle a little grease in your meal, then best of luck to you. For ten dollars, I guess you really cannot expect that much out of a little buffet.

There was sufficient vegetarian dishes, but even then those were also were packed with grease. Whatever happened to nice steamed vegetables with a little sprinkling of oil being served in restaurants?

All in all, Tandoor is unexceptional, but adequate.

poor example of Indian food – The food was greasy and not-that-good...overly salted and generally disappointing. The dinner buffet at around 930 PM was pretty dismal and hardly anything was left. Not many vegetarian options either. Have had much better meals from the buffet around the corner at New Delhi, who replenish their buffet even late, have many veggie options, and things aren't soggy and overly-salted. Also had old-looking salad at their buffet. Atmosphere is dingy and nothing special. Lame. I won't go again.

Good Vegetarian indian food.... – I went to this restaurant and turned back quite satisfied with a promise to owner to visit them again in a week.The dishes were very tasty.especially vegetarian as my husbadn dint like the chicken curry much.

chats there were awesome with chatnis. I just loved the imli (tamrind) and pudhina(mint) chatni. Made an excellent chollechat with dahi(yoghurt) ,pappdhi and mashed aalu and chatnies.

Luckily it was saturday and they were serving bathura chole and samossas also.Enjoyed it.

Its comparatively cheap also with a decent ambience.I found i homely with little less preofessioanl services though.

go elsewhere for Indian – After going here with a class for dinner, I can honestly say that although our professor paid for the meal (which was very nice of him, btw ;) ), the meal in itself was vile. I chose from a meager selection of very bland options (that were all lukewarm or cold). Avoid! (Go to New Delhi, which is just around the corner :) )

good food, good value – i was pleasantly surprised when i went to tandoor. my friends and i found it by accident when we were trying to go to fatou and fama (whoops, forgot it's closed on monday!). this place is DEFINITELY better than new delhi, which is the indian buffet around the corner on chestnut. the food here is actually seasoned,unlike the extremely bland food i have been finding at so many other indian restaurants. plus, when i went, they had barfi for dessert, which is not a common find at most buffets. usually, you only get kheer (rice pudding) and oversweetened gulab jamun (when it's done right, you're not supposed to feel like you're going to go into a diabetic coma!).

i won't say it's the most amazing indian food i've ever had, but for the price, it's probably the best buffet i've been to in philadelphia. that said, i'm sure karma down in old city has a good buffet, but i've only been there for dinner off the menu (and it's not cheap!)

WORST INDIAN FOOD – I've no idea how come these guys are still in business. This is the worst indian food I've ever tasted. They probably have some non-indian chef with recipes written by their manager, who put food out on table without even tasting it. One of my friends just ate salad so I guess this explain everything.

great delivery! good food for a great price – this is the first time ive tried ordering from this place. the guy was very nice when he delivered my food. i find in contrast to the other place i frequent that you get more for you money. although the food maybe a bit more greasier, it is VERY tastey and that makes up for it. the prompt service, hot food delivered to my doorstop was more than an excuse to give him a decent tip.

i highly suggest this place for take out in the U.city area. a new place on my top 10!

Great Indian buffet! – Tandoor India is one of U. City's great buffet restaurants. If you love all the flavors of India, this is a great place to try. The Chicken Masala is especially good.

What a Buy!!! – This is a great place!! Good food on buffet, love the flavors and the tandoori chicken is wonderful. Pleasant service, though mostly is self-serve. Great place for really inexpensive lunch or after-work dinner. My husband and I and a friend and I go there often, never disappointed!! Really, if you're in the University City area, try it and be impressed!!

avoid this place like the plague – The food here is atrocious. Both dishes we got were swimming in grease. It was unbelievable how bad it was, to be honest. The garlic naan was OK, but nothing spectacular. I'm pretty sure that it was just pita bread that was, of course, covered in oil and one or two tiny pieces of garlic. All the food on the buffet looked similarly awful and sitting underneath at least a half inch of pure grease. It was a far cry from fresh naan. I can't understand how this place is recommended in Zagat's. I have eaten at many Indian restaurants in my life, in places that you would not expect to have good Indian food, and this was BY FAR the worst I have ever had. I cannot tell you how upset my stomach is right now. Once I left there I was wishing that I had my appetite back so I could eat something else just to get the taste of this place out of my mouth.
