“Good food, Great Quick Service...”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

It was one of the best Indian food I had in Victoria.

We enjoyed sightseeing, shopping and finally made a stop in Sizzling tandoor, here in new phase of Uptown Mall. Just next door of H n M.
We had 3girls in the restaurant to serve us. They very pretty friendly. Service was quick and yes the taste…. Taste was really good.
We enjoyed our lunch here. I couldn’t find any fault in the starter or main course served. They were very much Indian taste what an Indian would look for maybe you need to advise them your preference of not making things sweet/ spicy as per your requirement.

Mukhwas after lunch was also wonderful.

We needed some direction guide they assisted us with the same by taking info out from internet.
They were very pleasing.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

When we arrived the place was packed due to lunch buffet .
We avoided it and ordered of the regular menu . Food was tasty and well prepared .
Things were little chaotic due to lunch hour rush . I would suggest avoid lunch rush hours or any time when promotional event is done to have a peaceful dining experience as the place is not so big !

“Good buffet”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We ate lunch on the weekend at this restaurant and they were serving a buffet. The restaurant was just opening so the food in the buffet was hot and fresh and was delicious. We did not get a chance to try anything on the regular menu, but I am sure it would be equally good and we did get to try some dishes in the buffet that we hadn't tried before- such as squash curry.

“Great Service, Terrible Atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Had dinner at this little restaurant downtown last week. My server, Michelle, was absolutely fantastic! She was so competent with the menu as I had many questions that she happily answered. The other girl working at the time was very friendly as well.

Unfortunately, the downside to this place is the atmosphere. The inside of the restaurant is just not very appealing to the eye. A paint job would do some good.

The food here is also excellent, some of the best Indian food I've ever tasted. Compliments to the chef.

“great food great price”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Indian food is ideally suited for buffet presentation, and this restaurant justly deserves its rating as #1 in Victoria of its type. We had the lunch buffet, and the sauces are delicately spiced, different from each other, with interesting condiments (eg tamarind sauce, mint chutney). The butter chicken melts in your mouth. The staff is pleasant and attentive. The chef takes pride in his food and the whole operation is clearly well run. An ethnic gem in "a bit of Olde Englande".
