Definitely wanted something the same from the other night, but in a completely different town!  Place was easy to find.  The interior not was what I expected, but I did order takeout.  Greeter was kind.   I ordered the Lamb vindaloo, rice and naan.  The rice had the key essence of cinnamon, saffaron, garlic stem.  Perfect!  The vindaloo balance of meat to sauce ratio was spot on and plentiful.  Powerfully seasoned, too.  Perfect!  Naan is naan.  Perfect.  The best part of this whole thing is I ordered there; ready in five minutes!  Awesome!  I'm going to try the chicken tikka masala tomorrow!  Great prices!

I order from this restaurant at least once a week. The food is amazing, the prices are reasonable and the portions are generous! I usually order from them via DoorDash but I have went to personally pick up the food. They are very helpful, kind and always a pleasure. If you are looking for some great Indian food, this is simply a must try! More...

Was here during a busy Sunday lunch hours, the staff was very pleasing and promptly took care of our order, waiter was very helpful with his suggestions and he gave us fair idea of serving portions which I feel was a great job ( 3 of us dine in and we ordered 2 biriyani and one appetizer, and still took some leftovers home ) and Quality of the food speaks for itself. We got our food with spice level with a great kick of taste. Must try ‘ Chiko shake ‘. Will visit again for sure and special shout out to our waiter Tony. More...

Went here for dinner last night based on a recommendation from some Indian friends. We had the Indo-Chinese entrees and a spicy chicken appetizer. This is authentic Indian cuisine so the food is very spicy... but oh sooooo good!!! The spicy chicken appetizer had me reaching for my mango lassi after every bite, but I couldn't stop eating it. We will definitely be back. we love Indian cuisine! More...

We ordered Indian Coffee with milk, and it came in two separate metal cups. You can add more milk to your coffee but I drank just by itself because it was really great. Both of us had lamb dishes. The meat was so tender and the sauce was to die for. They brought a large bowl of rice, which at first seemed too much for each person but in the end, I finished most of it even with the side order of Nan. I would strongly recommend this place.

This is my go to Indian place to eat for dinner! The only reason I give it 4 stars is because on 3 separate occasions they have forgotten parts of my food order and said they would reimburse me but never did. If you order to-go make sure you check your entire order! Other than that delicious food! More...

Very food food. The staff is very friendly, they serve food very fast. The problems we experienced was with the chicken and mutton biryani, the biryani itself was excellent, but the mutton was very dry (felt like a dew days old and was heated up and mixed in the rice and the chicken was like rubber. The chicken felt like it has been cooked a long time ago and was heated up a dew times and mixed in with the rice.A's for other stuff we had were wonderful. We will go there again but will have biryani but not with any meats. More...

The food and customer service was on point, as we were the only ones in there. I felt the chili chicken was a bit too spicy although it had a medium spiciness level. It tasted amazing, but I couldn’t eat beyond a few pieces due to the extreme heat. A slight kick to a dish is good, but when your tongue is numb and you can’t thoroughly enjoy the flavors, then it’s a bit too much. If the heat level was a bit more tolerable, then this would have been a perfect dish. I normally eat jalapeños and mango pickle as a snack, and this was beyond tolerable for me. Also, we usually don’t expect to see nuts in butter chicken. There were nuts sprinkled on top as a garnish, and since my sister only has a mild allergy to nuts, we just scraped them off the top as suggested. This should be adjusted in the menu. The masala chai did not have a masala taste to it, and I felt it could have been a bit differently made. It tasted like black tea with milk. The lassi here is my sister’s favorite. Overall, the food was pretty good. We enjoyed the samosa chaat. More...

I'm in love with this place! I think we've tried most of the vegetarian meals on the menu and they are super accommodating so anything they will work with you and help you make it vegan as Well. The place is super authentic, and the staff are friendly. I would say is between a fast food place and sit down style as well. The food is mostly already cooked ( or so it seems considering it comes out right away) and they have tables and such just not very cozy so not like a romantic/ date material type of place. But if you're in a hurry and want good food, quickly and cheap, it's the perfect place. More...

I used to go to this small Indian lunch buffet when I was working in the Westshore area. I have a general affection for Indian food and haven't been able to find a good spot in Brandon. ..until now.  I was minding my business going to my tailor when the smell of this placed peaked my interest. It's a smaller place, not something I really had noticed before in this small shopping center.When trying new places for the first time I try to stick to common dishes that I'm familiar with so I can get a true sense of if it is good or not. The curry flavor was not over powering and the sauce was creamy as expected. The spiciness was a good balance of the sweet creaminess as well. I ordered it to go and it took about 10 minutes, so I know it was fresh. My sense of smell is what drew me in, but I will return due to my sense of taste. This dish was delicious and I'm excited to go back and try others. They also had some good specials for lunch, late nights, and other random days. More...

That being said the service was great it was clean it was fresh it was authentic and again it's very very good you just need to know Indian food before you go because it's not going to have a buffet that makes everything easier.

Visited after hearing raving reviews of the bawarchi biryani and I was craving for authentic Indian biryani as well.. I was swept off with the spicy and crispy gobi manchurian . Absolutely loved it. So kind of my expectation of biryani went up . Ordered for avagayi biryani and was ok. I would say yeah had some spices but filled with huge chuncks of squash and potatoes and not soo great biryani. They have ok ambience and take a lil longer for service, though must say if the options around Tampa this is the closest you can get to indian flavours as other places I tried sucked ! More...

They try to bring authentic Telugu food taste. Sometimes it clicks and sometimes it backfires. Its good to see them not following other Indian restaurants which tune their foods to bring down spice levels which tastes so bald for Southern Indians.

Very good authentic Indian food that everyone will enjoy. Be careful of the spice levels because the Indian level medium is HOT for the average Indian. EVERYTHING we ordered was AMAZING ... great flavor. Just found our new favorite Indian restaurant. Only thing missing is they do not serve Indian beer. More...

Service was good. Atmosphere was good. I got my food within 20 minutes. They gave a generous amount of rice with my curry but it was cold which is my only complaint.  Their mango lassie easily stole the show for me. More...

This place is amazing, great service and great food. The amount of spice in the food is PERFECT! Best Indian food in the area for sure. If you want some good Indian food for affordable prices and large portions, this is the place to go. The biryani here was quite delicious and I have come back several times. I recommend this place for anyone looking to eat authentic biryani and other Indian cuisine. More...

I order from Bawarchi all the time for takeout. Their chicken fried rice is my favorite thing on the menu. The chili baby corn and the gobi are also really tasty! The few times I have eaten at the restaurant were also very enjoyable. The service is quick and the servers are very good at making recommendations based on spice tolerance and other preferences. It really is a family atmosphere and the portions of the entrees are large so go with friends or family and order lots to share! More...

We ordered bawarchi for our rehearsal dinner and everyone loved it. The spice in their food can be a bit extreme but just tell them to make it less spicy. Their samosas are pretty good! This is my second go-to Indian restaurant in Brandon, first is Tandoor Indian Cuisine on 60. More...

Delicious food! Probably one of my favorite Indian restaurants in Tampa. Haven't tried everything on their menu but I really like most of the appetizers and Chicken Tikka Masala. A lil slow but they do have delivery service. Worth the wait. More...

Wow. Just wow! I visited Clearwater beach and on our way back to Orlando my wife and I went to dine here. I ordered Hydrabadi Chicken Biryani and some chicken lollipops. Their Biryani was delicious and I haven't tasted many better dum Biryanis in the US. This place is a must try for non-veg lovers. I hope they open a shop in central Florida soon! More...

A great family style restaurant. My family and I were shopping in the Brandon, Fl area one Saturday. Parking was easy to find and the restaurant was easy to find as well. We ordered one chicken biryani and it was delicious. It was a tad bit spicy buy still tasted great! The mango lassi was watered down and small. The portion size definitely filled us up. This place is a great new addition to the restaurant game in Brandon... well done. More...

Awesome biryani. Well, I am editing my review after my second visit to them. Our first visit experience was way good, so decided to go again. But, in second visit, our hydarabadi dum biryani was not that good. We ordered mutton biryani (to go) and there were 2 small pieces of mutton. Others were some broken portion of mutton actually and taste was not up to the mark. But, lassi was too good both the time. So, loved it first time but second time we just ate it, coz we bought it.

Love the food here, the taste is so close to Hyderabad with menu that includes the wide selection of Biryani's.  I like chicken 555 the most and Vijayawada boneless chicken biryani is a must try. If your server tells you that, it's going to be spicy, you better believe him. Mango lassi is famous here , you don't want to miss it after a spicy meal. More...

Better than delicious, great services and a most revisit. The wife and I had been trying to find a location that we could acquire the taste we had grown to enjoy prior to relocating to the area. Not only did we find the taste, we found a welcoming environment that we look forward to sharing with friends and family. More...

This is one of the best indian restaurants i've ever been to. My favourite dish is chicken 555, this is the best appetizer for some one who love spicy food. Great ambience and excellent customer service.Definitely recommend this restaurant if you wanna have some authentic and delicious indian food. More...

I have eaten three times at Bawarchi and have had exceptionally good meals each time. They make special dishes on weekends which are delicious. Completely authentic indian food and good Indian music. Servers are doing their job really well. Prices are also reasonable for the quantity. Restaurant has an attractive lake view at the back side. Will surely come back ! More...

This place has some of the best Indian food I have had in a long time!! I have been there 3 times now and I keep trying new things and each dish is better than the last. Yummy, my biggest complaint is that I can't stop eating and I often overeat. :) More...

First time here. Service was immediate and friendly. The food was tasty and plentiful. There is definitely spice, so I can see someone without exposure to Indian food being surprised. I eat Indian food for the flavor and spice, so I loved it More...

One of the few Indian restaurants in the Tampa Bay Area serving authentic Indian good. Although, they specialize in biriyanis, everything on their menu is more than worth a try. My personal favorites are the Hyderabad chicken dum biriyani and the gongura chicken curry. Also, cooling down the spice levels with a glass of chikoo milkshake or mango lassi is a good idea. This is among the top of my list of places to go to when I am craving biriyani. More...

First off, so happy Brandon has it's own Indian restaurant! The Hyderbadi Chicken curry- perfect. Never had this type of curry before, it was definitely different but in a good way. The Chicken Tikka Masala- standard. Tastes like every other tikka.The Mutton Biryani- meh. Tasted bland.The mango lassi though.....yummy!Customer service was really good too. Even though they were super busy we didn't have to wait long to be seated or get our food. More...

The menu had a pretty good diversity of choices, the food was delicious and seemed fairly authentic and the prices are reasonable. Not a lot of tables. However, there are no fountain drinks, the water bottles on the table (already there when you sit) seem a bit questionable and the wait staff did not come around that often (kitchen staff was fast). Even the non spicy food has a bit of a bite (the way Indian food should be), so if you do not like spicy food be sure to state that up front (somewhat defeats part of the point, though). Most of the customers were Indian, which lends credibility to the place and will probably keep them honest in the kitchen. More...

The food here is really authentic. Chicken 555 and Chicken Fried rice are the most favorite dishes for me in this restaurant. I would say they are giving pretty good quantity for the price they sell for. Overall I have a great experience dining here....!Definitely recommend this place More...

The lunch specials/combos here are awesome, compared with the regular Indian lunch buffets.Few of you might have noticed restaurants serve different standard Biryani's in Lunch Buffets when compared to Biryani's they serve over Dinner. That is not the case with the Lunch specials here and these Combos are worth every penny. This is the closest to Hyderabadi Biryani I have ever tasted in Tampa and I relished every bit. The appetizers are good and weekend specials for sure will surprise you, of course in a pleasant way :).Food wise I have no complaints and I think they need to improve their service a bit, and again most of the Indian restaurants should do I guess. I'm definitely going to visit this restaurant again. I would suggest to try Tandoori platters and Lunch specials here. More...

Excellent Indian food, clean place and rich menu. I was really pleased !I passed by it several times, but never expected to be as good as it was.

Reasonably priced.  Around $40 for two people.  Lots of Indian customers packing the dining room.  To me that's a good sign the food is authentic.  Whole wheat roti is a great alternative to white naan.  Big menu.  I'll go back just to try the biryani. More...

Ordered it to go. Flavor was on point. Spice was perfect for my palate. I'll be eating here many more times. I've ordered take out roughly 8 times and dined in once. Dining in isn't the best just cause it is one big room. No booths. Though, take out is great, easy transactions. Food is really good. More...

LOVED LOVED LOVED the food! I ordered two kid size portions so I could try two diff dishes and oh my it was so much food! I have plenty of left overs ! Also when you order the Poori (the big puffy bread) they serve you two full size breads! I ordered a butter naan thinking it wouldn't be enough bread! The price is excellent... three pieces of bread and two entrees w two sides of rice for $17 you can not beat that! They were so busy and buzzing, but it made it interesting! I gave it a 5 star, my only complaint would be that the rice is not unlimited so I did have to buy an extra one to take home but that was fine w me because the rest of the proportions were more than plenty! Will be going back! And I recommend it! More...

So I passed by this restaurant a few times because it was in a shopping strip and looked kind of plain. Finally, I decided to give it a shot. Wow!!! The food was off the chain! I couldn't stop eating. We ordered the Lamb Vindaloo (don't ask for extra spicy it's hot enough) and the butter chicken. I was greeted with spices I was familiar with and a slew of others that tantalized my senses. I have never been so compelled to write this type of review for any restaurant, but seeming that it is not a place that would suck you in with its décor I felt the need to tell you all about it. Once your inside you will discover that it has a beautiful Lakeview in the back, yet another pleasant surprise. Don't pass this one up. You will not be disappointed and the staff is super friendly. Even if you don't live in Brandon it is worth the trip. And ha, ha, ha just promise yourself to jump on the treadmill for an extra half hour and treat yourself to the Ras Malai desert. More...

I was staying overnight in Brandon and was in the mood for Indian cuisine. This restaurant showed up and decided to give it a try. At first I wasn't sure whether I should go in because there were only 2 people eating inside. It's also located in a strip mall and the lights are a little too bright for my taste. It was 7:30 pm . Went in and ordered the Chicken Tikka Massala and the garlic naan. All were delicious and had a fresh, home cooked taste. I finished with a hot chai tea - which I had never tried- and it was fantastic. By 8:30 the place was full. Service is quick and servers are very polite. Some pop-Indian music in the background made it a pleasant experience. Great for families. More...

To start... the flavor of the food here was good, however be forewarned - if you cannot tolerate heat or spice in your food then this isn't the place for you. I asked for one of the dishes to be a zero on a scale of one to ten and it came out initially pretty spicy anyway. They tried to accommodate but I suspect that the sauces are probably premade or prepped ahead and cannot be customized.Portions were good and service was ok. Definitely tasty if you like your food spicy. More...

Had the Bawarchi Special Boneless Chicken Biryani $10.90 portion big enough for at least 4 people, the butter chicken $11. 90 which I found too spicy even though it did not have the spicy icon next to it but I was sooooo hungry and just kept eating with a tissue in my hand. It was really good once combined with the naam. The place was nice and clean. Waiter did not speak much English and only served us water and did not offer any other drinks. Make me wonder if the freezer with the sodas were for them or for sale. My daughter was like"mom they had Fanta, now why they only give us water" I don't know baby. My only suggestions to them-offer something else besides water and if something is really spicy put the icon next to it and try to offer small dinner portions because I spent $29 just on me since my daughter was sick and could not eat- side note More...

Rare Ethnic Food No. 19Indian biryanis is an beautiful like Chinese fried rice.  Chinese use the soy sauce with other ingredients. The Indian biryanis is using the Indian spice mixed with meat. The liking of how biryanis taste is up to each individual. Some like heavy spice with hot chili and some like it mild with touch of spice. The selection of biryanis here is a lot. Start with egg biryanis, boneless mutton, paneer veggies, Kheema, anthrax chicken, Avakai, ulavacharu and more. We have order regular chicken biryanis and Avakai biryanis. Tha avakai include mango pickle. Very interesting. I like it spicy hot. But if you feel is too hot, they have yogurt on the side. Service is good, the biryanis is excellent. Good enough spice. My wife said it is to hot after 5 spoon full. Love to come back to try them all. More...

I like this place for the following reasons: delicious authentic Indian dishes, big portion, extensive menu selections, great ambience, reasonable pricing, good service, easy parking.  We were there for dinner. We ordered pickle mango goat biryani. About 7 to 8 pieces of perfectly cooked  goat meat in the plate.  Rich flavor biryani rice with a hint of sour taste from the pickle mango made this dish quite interesting. It  was too spicy for me. When my mouth was on fire, a bite of the boiled egg  really helped calm down the heat. The portion was so big, enough for two people. Our waitress was friendly and patiently answering all our questions. The interior decoration was clean, new, bright and modern looking with a breathtaking water view on the back of the restaurant. It was unusual to see this kind of setting in any Indian restaurant here in Tampa. It was an enjoyable meal. I'm glad we stopped by. More...
