We purchased the gluten free Chicken Tikka Masala, GF Saag Paneer, Saag paneer, Aloo Gobi, Samoas, and both regular and garlic/jalapeño naan. All of our entrees were delicious, but none included rice with them. 🙁

My wife & I tried Tandoori Times last week and were both very pleased. When visiting from out of town, one can always feel assured of the quality and value of an ethnic restaurant that is popular with the local folk of it's own ethnicity and Tandoori Times attracts the locals who know how Indian food should be served. We... More

So you know it's good!! We ordered a whole host of stuff, nihaari, tandoori chicken, seekh kabobs, biryani, garlic naan. My favourite was the biryani. It was kind of like a Pakistani biryani. Not the usual saucy biryani that we are used too, that we make in our culture. The food was very nice. I have to say though, it... More

One of the best Indian food I have had in Phoenix (I am of Indian origin). The tandoori and Tikka are very authentic. The ambience was very nice. However, the service was terrible. We had to wait for atleast an hour to get our food, which was a wrap. It wasn't very crowded initially either. If it wasn't for the... More

Authentic Indian food, super fresh, spicy, and scrumptious. If you prefer not spicy or not so spicy meals make a clear note of it to the waitresses. The original naan was a real treat, and the wine was perfect. The total cost was beyond fair. In conclusion: an outstanding and pleasant experience.

This is the best Indian restaurant I have been to. It's really clean. The food is amazing. The chicken tikka masala is so tasty I might be able to live on that alone! We got it very hot which wasn't all that hot. It's more of a slow burn anyway, but makes it so flavorful. It doesn't set your mouth... More

Good indian food. A fairly standard offering - apart from the pesto naan nothing that seemed unusual or particularly inventive - but it was none the less enjoyable. Saag Ghosht was particularly good.

Went there during june and july 2015 with family. They have a great value lunch buffet on the weekend though it has very limited choices. For a family of 4(2 adults and 2 childrens) - one can have the entire meals with deserts within $40. We asked for matar paneer and malai kofta along with naan, steamed rice and Mango... More

Yum -- try the chili paneer and the exquisite Indian based drinks like the "Tar-Booze" - with watermelon and vodka.
