  • “I love Indian Tanpura. The food might not be ultimately the most subtle Indian food around, but it is VERY tasty, delivery is fast and reliable, and the food comes hot...as in too hot to touch sometimes. And the people at the restaurant are very nice and helpful. I've only ever had one problem and they resolved in quickly. One of the best delivery experiences in the neighborhood. ”

  • “I'm not sure what the real Deal Indian food is like (I'm not Indian): However, the items I've ordered are very tasty. Mild too, so it might be great for American tastes. The Garlic Nan is awesome. Very high in Garlic (note: Skip if on a date) I like the Shrimp dishes too, none bad”

  • “I really like the food from Indian Tanpura. My favorite dishes include, Keema Nan, Aloo Paratha, Chicken Tikka Biryani, Chicken Makhni, Shaag, Vegetable Somosa. The Biryani's come with a generous amount of protein and they containers are always completely filled. The breads are whole and large. Because they aren't cut I feel they arrive warmer and fresher. My only gripe is when ordering multiple appetizers I have gotten only one set of sauces, which is often not enough. Ask for more if you think you will need them. Delivery has always been quick and usually accurate.”

  • “The food here is consistently great but more than that, they went above and beyond for me. I sent the order to my work address by mistake and they were super nice about the whole thing. They went back to my office, picked it up, and brought it to me, no charge. And they were totally "it's no problem" about it. Love this place.”

    Abdelhak

  • “Two problems with the food: 1. The saag daal was really watery and bland. Being Indian, I actually hardly eat Indian food, but I know when it is of sufficient quality to meet the needs of the mass market. And I didn't think it wasof that quality. 2. There was no cutlery provided, and I specifically selected that I wanted cutlery to be included. ”

The Mulligawtny soup, pakoras and somosas are good as well. They always pay attention to my special requests and I always get what ordered (which seems to be a rarity, for me at any rate). ”

  • “Let me start off by saying I have ordered Indian food from a lot of different restaurants, but this was my first time ordering from here. I ordered the lamb biryani, but when it came over it was nothing like I expected. Normally dishes come with a 'side' of rice - this one was first and foremost a rice dish, with some chunks of lamb (which was quite fatty) and very little sauce mixed in. Luckily I also ordered raita which kept it from being too dry - but I was overall disappointed with the meal and will not be ordering from here again. The poori was the only highlight!”
