Mostly Northern Indian eats in a colorful room with Bollywood videos overhead, plus a lunch buffet.- Google
"Mint Indian offers a more Westernized but still delicious fine dining meal."
"We love coming to their lunch buffet!"

Soup was quite thin and watery. Three very different sauces (two with chicken and one with lamb) were uncharacteristically sweet and very similar in taste. The large cubes of chicken and lamb were very dry, despite having just been cooked (???) in a sauce. The honey coated pastry balls were soaked in the honey and tasteless (hard to do with honey). The naan was unremarkable but acceptable, as was the basmati rice. All in all the best thing served to me was the beer and water. Very few customers while I was there, and I suppose that should not be a surprise. I was asked if I wanted mild, medium or hot sauce, as if my preference should change how the sauce would properly be prepared. Part of my time was listening to the owner argue about a delivery from the phone a few feet from me. If you know nothing of Indian food, this is not the place to learn. If you enjoy properly prepared Indian food, you would not send your mother-in-law to this business.

Friends and I have been dining at Tandoor for more than 25 years! The food is cooked to order and delicious. The ambiance is attractive, comfortable, and relaxing. The owner, Bindal, and his staff are gracious and accommodating.

This is the place where I have eaten the most. A tremendous selection of authentic Indian dishes at reasonable prices keeps me coming back. The food is delicious and authentic, the waitstaffs are very helpful when making suggestions, the service is excellent, and they never let your glass go empty. Lunch buffet is a huge plus. This is by far the best Indian restaurant in Triangle in terms of food, service, location and price.

DONT WASTE YOUR TIME. Owners are FAKING OWN GOOD REVIEWS. "Tandoor cannot stand up to the competition in the area, with bland, forgettable food at inflated prices." I second that! The servers are CARELESS and remind me of cheap bag carriers in third world countries just waiting for me to hurry up so they can get "their tip". RECOMMEND TANDOOR ON HWY 55 and 54 BETTER FOOD BETTER PRICES BETTER SERVICE. THANKS!

Excellent food. Try the Mango Walla chicken or Rogan Josh; very tasty.

I've been eating here since I was a kid. The food is pretty standard indian, but I love the feeling of going down those soft stairs around the corner (though it's not even remotely handicap accessible) into a tasty-smelling room below-ground. Atmosphere is great, and the food is quite good!

Food was horrible and dis-gusting. Service was beyond poor. People were rude and pitiful. I will never go to this place again. I don't recommend anybody to go there. Save yourself the misery by picking a different Indian restaurant.
