Checked out TripAdvisor for a local restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. Their recommendations for entree choices was spot on. Food was delicious, service was great, let us sit and chat, didn't rush. Was a great experience for a first time visit to the city!

As British people visiting the US it was so pleasing to find an Indian restaurant. The food was excellent and the atmosphere pleasant. Service was good also. Highly recommended.

I love this place, food is great, service is terrific. I highly recommend this place if you happen to be in the neighborhood and have the urge for Indian food. You get 20% off if you pay cash. Not a bad deal!

I enjoyed the food at King of Tandoor and will be back to try more! The selection of lunch specials was great and the food was delicious. I had the Chicken Saag which was very good and also recommend the mango lassi.
