    Food was very good and service fine but we wished we had skipped the cocktails, and the guy who mixed the drinks was sneezing and not obviously washing his hands.

    I had the most amazing Indian cuisine here. I live 1.5 hours away and drove to the area to visit a great friend. I plan to return with my husband for a date night. I absolutely loved the ambiance, service and atmosphere.

    Made a reservation for 8:30. When I showed up, staff dithered before allowing us to sit. When we were seated, we were told to hurry up because the kitchen closes at 9. A restaurant’s hours is its business, but don’t seat me and tell me to rush. I left 4 stars on food because their food is good, but the staff needs to step up its game. I was not looking for a fast food experience.

    The ambiance in Tikka Masala is bright, modern and clean and recommended Covid protocols were followed. The service was very attentive. While the spicy cauliflower appetizer and grilled salmon was delicious, the chicken tikka masala was rather bland and uninspiring. More tasteful sauce could have been had from a jar at Giant.

    Yummy food. Enjoyed our lunch. Not very busy. We ordered the butter chicken and chicken Tika. The butter chicken was much more flavorful. I usually love chicken Tika. But from here it was very ok.

    Had an early lunch, so very quiet. Of course we ordered too much and had to take him leftovers! Everything was very good, but you must listen to the servers when choosing your spices. We will definitely return.

    Had a reservation made through Open Table. I arrived on time and was refused service. Was told they were closed and that I could only order to-go. If I wanted to-go I would've ordered on Postmates rather than driving 35mins to Bethesda.

    Tikka MasalaResponded on 31 March 2021Hello there sorry you had a unpleasant experience I talked with my staff and as per restaurant hours we close the kitchen at 8.45 and restaurant at 9pm ,we understand the effort made by you to enjoy dining at our establishment and apologize for the inconvenience thanks ...

    I ordered the Goat Biryani - it was excellent. The goat pieces are traditionally bony and at times have small fragments of bones in the dish. The entree I was served did not have small fragment but manageable bone pieces and the rice was done with a succulent sauce. The goat did not have a gamey taste. My wife had the salmon tikka. Both entrees were really good. The owner Ricky waited in us and he is very person and gave good advice on the entree selections
