Loved the relaxed atmosphere, the outdoors (corner lot in Healdsburg), the fact that my grandchild could run around.... A total favorite.

They made good efforts with their food, and the decor was nice - but the food was not very tasty.

The only thing really confusing is buffet pricing as many reviewers mentions. Buffet is actually priced at $12.99 (they call it regular price). However, they put their **discount price** $8.99 at their door with a small print of **club price**. Firstly, most of people naturally thinks the price is $8.99 and most of them will be surprised their bill and leave with a bitter taste although the meals were good. Groupon discount can't be with this club price and you need to pay a regular price. It's really misleading and they can't complain if many customers say it's not an ethical business practice.

It is deceptively EXPENSIVE and this should be listed. Only offered 2 small pieces of naan with dinner and it's 2.50 for more. The server tried selling us a large rice, which is EXTRA and does NOT come with entrees. The small rice was 10 oz which was more then enough for 2 people. They never explain anything on the menu - just ask if you want things they make sound like it comes with the meal.

From Our Editors

To enliven the local, organic produce that fills his kitchen, Chef Vinay Patel welcomes monthly shipments of spices from India, such as turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, and cardamom. After seasoning his meats, he lowers them into a clay tandoor to cook over handpicked, hardwood mesquite charcoal. For all the effort that goes into each chicken dish, curry, and biryani, the Bohemian has awarded Sizzling Tandoor Indian Restaurant its Best Indian award for 22 years running.

The dishes sprawl from traditional entrees to Northern and Southern Indian specialties and Indo-Chinese fusion dishes. Chefs also tandoor-fire nearly a dozen types of bread, including naan, paratha, and gluten-free and vegan missi roti to sop up sauces. Rather than placing a miniature fire extinguisher at each table, chefs calibrate each dish's spiciness from mild to hot.

As diners expand the depth of their palate, an Indian ambiance envelops their body. At the Santa Rosa location, live belly dancers charm and entertain on Friday and Saturday night, and live musicians stop by for events such as Samosas and Sitar. While watching, guests can nurse Indian beers and specialty cocktails including the Sizzling Sunset, which ups the ante of traditional mango lassi with vodka.
