Great Atmosphere and Food!. Compaired to most Indian restaurants, Tandoori Oven rocks! The colorful, inviting atmosphere and techo music are refreshing. In addition, the food is amazing. I recommend the vegetarian dishes.
I'm not sure why nobody has done this before. Good, healthly Indian food in a cool environment with great prices. Servers who smile and actually seem to enjoy what they're doing.
California Indian!. Great quality, casual atmosphere and reasonable prices. They've done a great job of blending cusual california eating with high quality Indian dishes. b
Unbelievable. How can people actually recommend this restaurant. I am quite fond of INdian food, any ethnic food for that matter, but this meal was crap, and the emplyees are clueless. I will never return.
My wife literally dragged me to Tandoori Oven, I have never liked Indian food or restaurants. Generally I have found Indian food to be oily, very hot and with mystery meat being the most common ingredient.
I've noticed before that the place is always packed, which is a good sign. There wasn't any of that immensely irritating Indian folk music playing, the music sounded like some kind of reggae/hip hop fusion- I'm probably too old to figure out what that is/was.
We ordered a Chicken Tikka and a Lamb Vindaloo, which they warned me was failry spicy, 2 beers and a mango lassi. The total was less than $30 incl tax and tip and we couldn't eat all of the delicious food.
Glowing reccomendations from this old timer
Just Awful!. I don't know how people can actually recommend this place. The food is awful, tastes like frozen dinners I got from grocery stores when I lived in London, except not as good. The service sucks, they act like every request is an unwanted burden. Even the naan isn't fresh despite the tandoor oven in plain view. And the prices aren't cheap given the small portions and atrocious food quality. I really don't see how the reviews on this place are so mixed. It sucks!
Major letdown. I was very disappointed with the tandoori oven. I love Indian food, eat it regularly for lunch in berkeley where there are quite a few nice places. The food here not only lacks authenticity, but is just plain bad. As stated by another "reviewer", the menu is good although conspicuously familiar, but the food and service need work. Stay Away.
Great Indian Food!. My boyfriend and I always get the Chicken Tikka Masala everytime we go there, which is phenomenal! The a la carte order comes with either rice or naan, and this is the best naan I have had... so soft and fluffy! I've also tried the Salmon Tikka before (it's offered as a daily special occasionally) and it is also fabulous! Good sized portions and the prices are fair. Service is usually quick (order at the counter and they deliver it to your table.) The ambiance is very cute. Love it!!!
Waste of money, waste of time. This seems to be a knock-off of a popular restaurant chain. They have the same menu and I think they tried to use the same name originally and were caught? Anyway, food is below par and service is spotty. It is a cozy restaurant and setup well, but that's about as far as my praise will go. Still waiting for good Indian food loacally.
