Satisfying the appetites of an estimated 5,000 customers each week, Tandoori Flame lets patrons help themselves to up to 150 individual menu items in its epic buffet offerings at one of the largest Indian buffets in North America. Hungry daytime or evening noshers can tour the buffets, which lay out kilometres of authentic snacks that include vegetable pakoras and chicken kebabs. Amid the intricate architecture and multi-coloured carpets, featured soups and tandoori pizza provide delicious opening acts for main course items such as succulent patter peneer, chicken biryani, and goat curry. Diners have ample opportunity to socialize at their sumptuous brown-clothed tables, sample various menu items, and cap off meal experiences by strolling to the dessert buffet where traditional Indian desserts and fresh fruit reign supreme. Within Tandoori Flame's brightly lit 14,000-square-foot dining space, friends and families are given plenty of real estate in which to take a second stroll through the buffet tables, examine the handsome Indian decor, or form curry-based mosh pits. Customers planning to visit Tandoori Flame should call ahead for a reservation.
Each year, more than 180,000 diners fill their plates from Tandoori Flame, which chefs refill constantly with up to 150 different buffet items prepared in a wide variety of spice to suite any palate. Soups and naan greet diners at the start of the line before they move to batter-fried vegetable and fish pakoras, as well as less traditional offerings including onion rings. Then, they traverse to the tawa and tandoor section for smoked veggies, samosas, and potato tikkis (or patties). Main courses wait down the line—including goat curry, butter chicken, and palak paneer—before diners finish their culinary voyages the same way Marco Polo ended his: with fresh fruit, pastries, and Indian desserts. Diners can linger traditional drinks such as yogourt lassis, sip on Indian-inspired cocktails or select a bottle of wine or drink from their fully stocked bar.
The restaurant’s high ceilings, cloth-draped tables, and modern decor are a fitting backdrop for the abundant feast and bold flavours. Already with seating capacities up to 500 in Brampton and over 360 in the new location in the commercial hub of Mississauga, Tandoori Flame has plans to expand further into British Columbia.
