"Our group of 15 guests were pleased with the quality of Indian dishes ordered and the service provided. It is definitely one of the better class Indian Restaurants around Wash Metro area. The menu items are traditional North Indian and not too spicy and oily. Good ambiance. Menu prices are not too high and not low also."

"This place has really gone down hill. Portions were a little small (replacing meat with too much sauce), and the chicken was full of fat and gristle and was really unappealing. But the redesign was beautiful."

"Neither my companion nor I possessed any real familiarity with Indian cuisine when we visited Bombay Tandoor, but the restaurant had been recommended to us and it did not disappoint. The food (I tried the tilapia curry dish as my entree; my friend chose the butter chicken), was simply excellent. The wait staff was professional and efficient, while also managing to be both warm and welcoming; Samy, our delightful server, gently guided us through the menu) and made our visit particularly pleasant. We certainly enjoyed our evening, and we plan to return."

"Simply the best indian buffet in the metro dc area. I think its better than Bombay club even due to its more generous variety of dishes. Admirable 'modern' interior is a nice change of pace.
$12 on weekdays, $14 on weekends.

"Tried so many things. Food was all very good. Lots of variety and offerings. Service was second to none!!! Tried vegetarian and non vegetarian. All came out very quickly and the staff was also very helpful guiding through everything. Water was never empty and drinks filled. Friendly staff and great food. Perfect option for something different in Tysons."
