Great food. The best Indian restaurant in Sao Paulo. I recommend it for lovers of spicy food and a great price too.

The selection of the buffet is small but the food is good. The restaurant has a cosy atmosphere, the service is good, parking was surprisely easy for a Friday night, they have vallet in case you go for that. Price was a bit higher than I would expect, but I will be back.

It's been a while since I ate at Tandoor for the last time (which is a shame, I really want to go again). I loved the atmosphere and the food, I have nothing bad to say about it. I've never had indian food in India, but I don't think it's fair to compare. Indian food made in Brazil is obviously... More

This is easily the worst Indian food I have had outside India. We ordered mixed vegetable, paneer makhani, and chapatis. While the paneer was sour or spoilt, the chapatis were nothing but warmed up ready-to-eat frozen roti. Big thumbs down for this one!

Dear Friend, Many times Indians compare Indian food outside India with what is available in India. In Brazil,many spices are not available & the quality of milk is very different then what you get in India & also in other countries.Paneer is not the same nor is yogurt nor is wheat flour. More

The place has one of the worst indian food I have tasted in all my travels across the world... The veg kolhapuri was runny... If you don't know about indian food, the first thing to look for is that the curry should not have water running over the plate, if you want to see a example of runny curry, please... More

We were just in São Paulo for 2 nights and we ate here both nights. Good atmosphere , very friendly staff and good food. Not too spicy, but that suits me, although there are spicy options on the menu. Menu in English too.

Visited this restaurant after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. Tucked away in a residential area. It was very surprising. Service was very quick and the good was very good, maybe not as spicy as UK Indians, but still very tasty. Would recommend to any one

We were in SP for a day and we were longing for good Indian food. This was the closest and hence we arrived here. The owner greeted us very well. He was very friendly and kind. Ambiance was very good but the food was moderate. We ordered briyani, Naan and chicken curry. Service was good and quick.
