Sizzling Tandoor in Santa Rosa

We recently went to Sizzling Tandoor Indian Restaurant in downtown Santa Rosa for dinner and had the best time! They have been in business for over 20 years and it is easy to understand why.

One of the highlights of the evening were the belly dancers. This evening, two girls from the Black Sheep Belly Dance Company were performing. For more information on Black Sheep, check out are very good at what they do and you can see them in action in the movie below:

Our server recommended that we try a beer called 10,000 Monks. It was an excellent choice.

We decided to order a whole bunch of different things, mostly because everything looked so good. We are glad that we did. It was way more than we could eat in one sitting, that's for sure. Pictured is the Tandoori Mix Grill, Lamb Vindallo, Chicken Tikka Masala, Baigan Bharta, Palak, and the Daal Bukara and of course some rice.

You can play chess with salt and pepper shakers if you have to wait to get a table. It's a nice touch.

This is a picture of the Tandoor Mix Grill with Tandoori Chicken, Lamb Tikka, Shekh Kabab, Fish Tikka and Shrimp.

The staff was very attentive, super friendly and we highly recommend this restaurant.

Here is their website:

Thank you.

I'm Caucasian, from Los Angeles and love Indian food and have eaten at the Sizzling Tandoor for years. IF it's doable to go there for lunch it's a much better deal as it's the all you can eat buffet for $8.95, I think even less if you're a Kurry Club member (which equates to asking your server for a card). Indian food is so flavorful and I love their chutneys, the mint one and others, such as the tamarind chutney.

I always order raita, their yogurt cucumber sauce, if anything's too spicy it helps to mellow it out.

I find if you go for dinner and order lots of items it adds up, unless of course dinero is no problem.

All the best,
