Shortly after opening on Allen Street in Buffalo in 2019, Buffalo Tikka House was hit with back-to-back blows. First, road construction on Allen Street made it hard for cars and foot traffic. Second, the COVID-19 pandemic hit Buffalo Tikka House like it hit all local restaurants and it’s a blow that the industry is just beginning to recover from.

Despite the setbacks, Buffalo Tikka House has thrived. In fact, the restaurant recently moved into a bigger location around the corner on Main Street. With better on-street parking options, a lot more seating and the Buffalo Medical Campus just across the street, the small move could have a big impact.

Fortunately, the restaurant is still serving the same Bangladeshi Indian food that won over the hearts of Allentown. Classics like tandoori chicken ($16), lamb kebab ($19) and chicken tikka masala ($16) are all expertly spiced and cooked to that signature tandoor char. Biryani is always a crowd-pleaser, and Buffalo Tikka House serves it with chicken ($15), lamb ($15), shrimp ($17), and/or vegetables ($15). There are also deep-fried classics like vegetable pakora ($6) and samosa chaat ($8).

But Buffalo Tikka House truly stands out for its baked-to-order naan. You could go with a simple butter ($3) or garlic naan ($4). But really, you should do a cheese-stuffed paneer naan ($4.50), chilies-stuffed bullet naan ($5) or the Peshwari naan, which is filled with dried fruits and coconut. Desserts and soft drinks round out the menu.

While the old restaurant only had a few seats for dine-in, the new place has plenty of seating. Simply order at the counter and a server will bring your food when it’s ready.
