My favorite Indian place to eat at or order from in New Jersey!

Decent. Not great. Charging for papadums. Really?

The food was much more spicier than expected, especially since we requested mild for both dishes. more

Excellent food, wonderful service and priced just right. \r \r If you love authentic North Indian food filled with all the proper spices and full of flavor then this is the place for you. My favorites are Dal Makhani, Biryani and hot Tandoori Chicken. I have always catered from Tandoori Chef for all my events ever since I discovered this restaurant. \r \r Can more

Great food! 6/2/2011

So we usually go to the sister restaurant - Madras Bistro - which is right next door. It's pretty much the same menu as Tandoori Chef, but only the vegetarian part. Everything on the menu in MB is available at TC. My parents dont really like the smell of meat and all, so we try to go all veg restaurants. While MB and TC share a kitchen, it feels like a separate restaurant. I'm told they keep utensils separate for the Veg dishes, but I still have to confirm that.\r \r Madras Bistro is very casual and simple, with great food. Their indo-chinese is fantastic, and the dosas are amazing. They have this red chutney that they give along with the dosa - sooo good. Totally brings out the flavor of the masala dosa. And the ""masala"" in the masala dosa was perfect.\r \r If you want a proper restaurant feel with veg and non veg options, TC is better. MB is not fancy at all, but it's a nice, clean place, and the food is fantastic. To me, that's what counts. I've tried the north indian, south indian, and indo-chinese and everything I've ordered was great. I don't even LIKE sambhar much, but their's was really good. \r \r Madras Bistro/ Tandoori Chef has become my family's # 1 indian restaurant option around. And it's not even expensive! more

GUD FOOD WITH CONFUSED STAFF 5/15/2011

Poor service......was very turned off by the service, or lack thereof. We felt invisible, even though the place was swarming with employees. There was no coordination between the employees. A restaurant at this price level should be attentive to detail -- I think one employee is enough to take care of a table....too many employees popping up at the table caused disturbance -and finally the servers could not even remember who ordered what at our table......entrees had the perfect combination of portion, height and taste...used to love tandoori items at tis place......gud but not great taste in tandoori appetizers as it used to be before.... I am guessing the chef left... .. more

Tandoori Chef 5/9/2011

You have to go here, their food is AMAZING!!! I have had my share of Indian Cuisine, but at Tandoori Chef, the staff are professional and polite, the food is always fresh and nothing is overpriced. I find myself eating something from there atleast once a week, (usually their Na'an and Paneer). I am completely addicted. I have finally found my happy place! Keep up the great work!! :-) more
