Really great food! Went in a group on Saturday night and the food was awesome. Wasn't all that busy, surprisingly since it was great.

Many years ago I used to often eat at The Tandoor in Chapel Street opposite the Jam Factory and then it disappeared. Driving down Commercial Road in August and stopped in traffic saw that it was now in Commercial Road not far from the Alfred Hospital. Phoned to confirm that it was the same Tandoor from years ago and assured... More

I am including the story of our whole evening so you can understand how lucky we were to find The Tandoor and have the fantastic meal that we did. I am writing this review so that more visitors to St Kilda can find The Tandoor on purpose. It was getting pretty late and we really needed dinner so Ron checked... More
