    Weekday menu is a bummer. Very limited options. Chat counter was terrible - they just lead laid out some bhel call it chat counter - it was not a live counter as it should be. No pav bhaji, no puris, plan rice for vegetarians! And don't get started about the drinks without price tags. Oh and if it's your birthday they offer to come and sing to you at 45$!!! Never seen this level of rip off anywhere!

    The bill was shocking. We ordered fruit juice that we found that was not include and they charged us $35 for each!!!! equal the price of all food for each. So tricky and unreasonable.

    Food selection is good, too many to choose from. Buffet bar is kept clean and foods are kept hot and properly covered / protected so I feel safe they are not contaminated. Service is also good and adequate. The food tastes authentic to me but I’m no expert. My son said their butter chicken is not as good as those from his favorite restaurant but it still tastes pretty good to me. I’d go more often if I could eat a lot but I don’t so it’s a little bit pricey for me :)

    We had heard so much about the Grand Indian Buffet at Tandoori Flame. The experience can be summed up as "meh. I've had better". The food quality was sub-par, no authenticity about it, very greasy, and the stations were not filled in a timely manner. For the price you are paying, there are so many options nearby that have quality food, and fresh food. I would advise everyone to give Tandoori Flame a miss and try some other place around there.

    selection of food is quite good. also selection of desserts. the naan was so delicious and made fresh in the barrel oven. different flavours too! food areas are kept clean and bathroom was clean too. waiters were nice. most items are labeled so you know what they are. what is concerning is their ethical practice and lack of transparency. i had read other reviews before we went there so i was already aware and these complaints were confirmed when we were there in person. first, water bottles on each table are NOT free. there is no price on it, there is no sign to explicitly state it costs $$ (we didn't open it cuz other reviewers said $6 ish for the water). the waiter does not tell you it's NOT free. you can order cups of water for free. the waiter pushed the cocktails. also, NO PRICES listed. (other reviewers said if you get alcoholic cocktail, you have to pay extra for the alcohol!). we ordered chai tea (we found out we were charged $5 each for very small cups of tea). but they were tasty. huge buffet of food and desserts, even pizza, some fruit, salad bar, ice cream, soft serve, etc. but NO drinks whatsoever. so if you don't ask for cups of free water, your only other choices are overpriced cocktails/mocktails or the bottled water on your table. we went for the lunch buffet on a wednesday. there was already a small lineup at 11:30am but everyone got seated and lots of seating inside, no problem. large free parking lot. we paid $33 each. the pro is that you get to try different items but i wouldn't say it's worth the expensive price but okay for once in a while.

    Many sneaky charges. Most outrageous is 12% facilities charge...what is that for? Despite that, credit card machine still promotes for 15%, 28%, 20% tip. Drink menu very opaque. Deliberately no prices except via QR version (QR doesn't work). Virgin Mojito $12.99 + $1.99 addition for mint. Virgin KitKat drink same $12.99 + 1.99 addition for a stick of KitKat. $30 mango lassie (yes it's a pitcher but not informed.

    The table was reserved for buffet. The drinking menus with *no prices* were intentionally kept on buffet tables to mislead customers they are part of buffet. The servers were trained not to reveal the prices of the drink which are way overpriced, customers were kept in dark until the end. The service was poor. The plates were never removed during my entire stay. Bathrooms were not clean. I will not go to this restaurant again.

    The food was not very good for what was being charged. Mostly tasteless and not what I'm used to having for Indian Cuisine. It was not that hot (temperature wise) either. The food lines were disorganized and chaotic. I could go on and on but why bother I wasted enough time on this place.

    It was the first time we’ve been to what I’ve heard is the largest Indian food buffet in North America. Besides the dizzying variety, the dishes were all fresh and in some cases (like the Naan bread) made right in front of you. The Tandoori grilled chicken was, as you would expect, delicious, but a real surprise were offbeat dishes like tandoori spiced fish and goat curry. The gulab jamun desert was the best I’ve ever tasted. We felt that we had only scratched the surface of the offerings, so we’ll be back before long.

    3 adults, a 13 year old who is considered a adult so had to pay full adult price and 1 child. 2 pop, 1 beer and 2 fancy nonalcoholic drinks and the bill was almost $300. Food tasted good but way to much money for the amount we could eat. This for me is a one and done place. Service to get drinks was very slow, getting the bill was even slower.

    Our experience with Tandoori Flame was outstanding. The wide selection of food was amazing, it was hot and plenty of it. It helped to have a written board to tell you what each item was. The only thing that was missing was Indian music playing, that would have been perfect.

    I don't think it's worth for vegetarians for that price of $35 per person on a weekend. Majority of menu is meat oriented. Not vegetarian friendly in the sense of ratio of meat to vegetarian items.

    I am vegetarian and I saw people using same tongs to get veg and no veg items like pan fried paneer and potatoes. And this happened because veg and no veg items are next to each other. Also Cost of the beverages even non alcoholic is high.

    I am a regular on wkends ( sundays) at Tandoori flame. This was my 1st time dining on a week day here. The place was busy , food selection was minimal and most dishes in the buffet were empty & not being replenished to cater to the volume of customers. So it appears for a less lunch buffet price the pickings are half of the wkend lunch items and they were not producing or replacing the items. Most time was spent settling for items or waiting long period to get a plate. I would only recommend this establishment for wk day dinners or all day wkend days.

    The servers were so so so bad. They were cleaning chairs, and as we called for help, they continued cleaning the chairs. I’ve been in the food and beverage industry for several years now, and never witnessed this poor service. The staff looked dead and tired, and no will or motivation to work. Was very excited to visit this place but unfortunately the serves disappointed us
