The weekend lunch buffet is very affordable at $10 and has good selection of vegetarian and meat dishes. I liked the goat curry, spinach & paneer mash, chicken boti kebab and chicken tikka masala.

Went here for dinner on saturday expecting good south food but it was a disappointment when I saw that the classic south indian dishes took a back seat on a menu full of north indian dishes. However, the food served was also not very tasty.

My boyfriend and I love ordering takeout food from Tanjore, plus I have enjoyed visiting the restaurant a few times. I almost always get the chicken tikka masala. It's my favorite Indian place in the area.
