one of our long-time favorites

For the past decade and a half, Cafe Tandoor has been one of our long-time favorites in Aurora. We often go with our friends and share a veggie and non-veggie mixed platter as appetizers. Our friends usually order the veggie specials and biryanis, while my wife orders the veggie grill and I order... read more

Small Indian restaurant. They serve the best Indian food in the Cleveland area. We have taken many Indian friends to eat there and they tell us it is very authentic. If yo do not like very hot-spicy food, they will adjust the level of the heat in the food, you just have to tell them.

Just went there tonight. First off, the service was awful. We sat without anyone coming to our table for over 20 minutes. We were (obviously) ready to order both drinks and meals when the server came (with no apologies for the wait). He then took 35 additional minutes to bring our drinks out- another 20 minutes after that for our... More

We've been enjoying Cafe Tandoor in Aurora since the first opened here years ago. We mostly get take out with our order being saag gosht hot (won't kill you but it's flavorful with a decent amount of heat), butter chicken medium (my wife gets this and Frank's or Crystal hot sauce is the most heat she can handle), saffron pulao,...

Experienced this restaurant via a delivery service to our hotel room. Very generous rice portion and nice sized pieces of naan but were left hungry with the small portions for their tandoori mixed grill ($20!).

The ambience is good, neat and clean and well maintained unlike their sister restaurant in Cleveland Heights! Ugghhh.. that one is a disaster! Food quantity and quality - Food was really good :) It was fresh, tasty and well presented.. and in enough quantities :) Service - Very very good service! Over all experience - Very good!

I liked the Tandoori Salmon. My wife like the Chicken Tikka Masala. Then we switched plates! This was a very tasty surprise for us.

We started with the onion and garlic pan, my adult son had the mixed grill which was tandoor lamb, chicken and shrimp with tandoor vegetables. My wife had vegetarian rice dish with cheese and I had the Chicken Tikki Masala. All the... More

This cozy restaurant is always reliable: the food is tasty and served steaming hot, and the servers are attentive. The nans and curries are my favorites, as well as the specialty drinks, both alcoholic and non-. And it's usually quiet -- good for a nice escape.
