Arrived with great expectations but was disappointed by the reception lad. He was using his i-phone and didn´t seem to care about us. Just confirmed we were at the right place. The waiters are in a hurry all the time and don't explain anything unless you ask. The food wasn't warm enough and the lamb tasted like red meat. The... More

Coming from London, I really miss good Indian food. There is plenty of Indian-influenced cuisine here in Sao Paulo, but that's not the same thing. Tandoor does a really good job of filling this space, and offers some classic dishes along with house specials. The spices have a slightly different taste to what I am used to, but still spicy...

In general in Latin American continent, it's difficult to find good Indian food. Tandoor provides a very good alternative. They have interesting saffron rice. Which doesn't taste amazing though. I'd strongly recommend Paneer dishes. With more spicy dishes at times they tend to find it tough balancing the tastes. One advantage that the restaurant has, is it's location. It's very... More

There aren't many Indian places in SP, but this one is worth a try. It's nice to visit the restaurant for a fresher taste, but you can also order at home. Try the Garam Tikka Masala and don't miss the naan and the paste trio.

I´m Brazilian and I have lived in England, US and Japan so I can say I have an ´international taste´ for (veggie) food. For years Tandoor has been my favourite restaurant in São Paulo, as Indian is one of my favourite cuisine. The best thing of Tandoor is that the food is authentic Indian, and there are several veggie options... More

After living two years in the curry desert of Rio, I was looking forward to a decent Indian meal in São Paulo, but Tandoor served up one of the worst I've ever had. I ordered a chicken vindaloo in the expectation of a spice attack on my taste buds. Instead the meat was tough, the sauce was bland and everything... More
