We stumbled upon this restaurant when looking for someplace to have dinner near our hotel. The flavors were delicious, and the portions were appropriate for the price.

My favorite Indian restaurant in Phoenix by far! Food quality is great and reasonably priced. Ambience is ok as well as drink selection but adequate. Service is great! When craving Indian in Phoenix/Scottsdale only one place to go, here.

We found this Indian restaurant on a PBS show that we were watching one evening and my husband said that looks like somewhere we must visit. We have visited so many Indian restaurants in the valley and have always felt disappointed by the experience and food. Well look no more, this restaurant is the best in the Valley. The Butter...

Shame, this place had some decent food. Atmosphere was very lovely, belly-dancer entertaining, even some traditional Indian jewelry and clothing for sale. Worst wait staff I have ever experienced in Scottsdale. Not attentive, rude, snatched the check out of my hand to make sure we had the right one (as we had to get another server to assist us). Just... More

Last week Tandoori Times was featured on a local PBS show and as we love Indian food and have been exposed to very high quality on St. Maarten, we were very pleased that Tandoori Times lived up to its PBS review on our lunch visit. We had the Butter Chicken and Chicken Korma, both very good. My only concern is... More

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.
