Went to this restaurant today for dinner. The food was so tasty and delicious. The Kucumber salad with their house mango dressing is to die for. The nan bread is so light and delicious. The tandoori chicken has the best flavor I have ever tried. The staff was so nice and friendly. I will be back. They also offer all... More

I went with 3 friends for their lunch buffet. $9.95 includes a variety of hot entrees, salad bar, naan, and chai tea. The food was very good and the chai tea was nice on a cool day. I especially liked the chicken saag, vegetables korma, and tandoori chicken. The only minus was the vegetable pakoras which turned about to be... More

We love this place! When we moved we must have come to this place weekly. We have taken most of our friends here. The name is now House of Curry & Grill. We always order the same thing and never tire of our Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Tandoor. When we come for brunch, we get to taste the other... More

Very nice service, a little slow, but good food takes time. We ordered mild because of the kids, made it a little bland, probably our fault. I think if we ordered medium or hot, it would have been great. Tandoori chicken was GREAT!! Juicy and very tender. Would definitely return.

We had chicken tikka masala and chicken tandoori at this restaurant. The masala was great, a new style that I never had before: delicious and with it's own character. The tandoori was not as I expected: was more like baked at normal temperature, rather than 'tandoori'.

This is now called the "House of Curry & Grill." Owned by the same people that owned Sizzling Tandoor. Typical in many ways of most Indian restaurants with the same Indian meals we've all become accustomed to. Their new sign also says "Indian & Nepalese Cuisine." However, when asking if there was anything on the menu that was indigenous to... More

This has to be one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever been to! My mother and I stopped here while on a road trip, at the recommendation of our motel. The food was amazing, the menu was extensive, and the service was wonderful. Many of the dishes were made with spices imported directly from India. Everything was delicious... More

The portion sizes are always spot on with enough to take home for lunch the next day. My favorite appetizer to get here are the veggie samosas and mango chutney...together! We took a friend... More

We stopped for lunch in Santa Rosa on our way north. We ordered the lunch buffet which was excellent. The buffet included salad, desserts, multiple entrees and sides, and an array of sauces. Hot nan bread was brought directly to our table. My wife was thrilled with the Tandoor chicken, one of her favorites. Despite ordering the buffet, we found... More
