Good food, slow service

Really enjoyed the food here, it was well cooked and really tasty. However, it took nearly an hour to get our order, which wouldn't normally be a problem in a busy restaurant, but we were the only people there at the time. That being said, the food was worth the wait. I would certainly go again

Just had a soup and a fruit salad. Fruit salad- too much pineapple.. Comparing the two, the fruit salad had more taste than the soup.

The tandoor is a very quite restaurant, with good food and a nice charm. The staff are helpful and want to give you the best experience. We had the momos and a full tandoori chicken. Both well priced and nicely cooked.

After touring all the beach side restaurants and menus, avoiding the many invitations to dine, we selected the Tandoor. It was upstairs with a first floor level overlooking the sea. I asked for and got real Kerala food, I specifically asked for food as cooked at home by the Chef and not a tourist bland version. The meal was excellent... More

Ambition to be a fine Indian restaurant, but it is more affordable to eat on a regular Indian restaurant. They have free wifi but it did not work when we were there.

Our custom is to visit a different restaurant each evening to try as wide a variety as possible. However we liked the Tandoor so much we went three times in our 11 night stay! The food was brilliant and we found that one portion of rice and three vegetarian dishes made a delicious and substantial meal. We thoroughly recommend this... More
