Good Indian food in beef land

Good food, limited but assured vegetarian options, quick service, and friendly staff is how I will describe this place. Could not see much of a bar but was full on a week night with just two tables occupied by Indians. Rest were buenos aires locals.

The food was good, but the service was slow (only one waiter on the day we went during lunch time) and the food was pricey for the portions.

Tried a few lamb, chichen and shrimp dishes. Nice flavors, right balance of spices, not too hot. Service is slow, they should really improve it. Kitchen closes around 23:30.

This place was close to my hotel (O-Baires) so we went for dinner when we arrived, of course, tired and hungry haha. And this place was super nice!! I love indian food, but the restaurant itself it's warm and cozy, very nicely decorated, the service is good, and the food is abundant and super good. I enjoyed it a lot!!!!

We were happy to find that there was an excellent Indian restaurant close to our home in Recoleta. We ate in the restaurant quite often and with friends but I liked getting Take Away and having it at home. Everything we tried was delicious and the wait staff is wonderful and attentive. I wish I could go there tonight !

My family and I had dinner at Tandoor restaurant today. We were glad to meet the owner who catered to my mum's request of Jain food (no onion, no garlic). Food was pretty good and way better than I expected for Indian food in Argentina. We ordered butter naan, korma and paneer saag. Will definitely go back and recommend the... More

Would say in general one of the better Indian restaurants I have encountered however fell flat due to the lack of spice, unfortunately here in BA its almost impossible to find truly spicy food. As someone who enjoys spice I ordered one of the spicier dishes on the menu and would have considered it closer to mild in the US... More

Went here looking for a good Indian curry and sadly the curries were not quite up to scratch. I had the saag paneer and requested spicy but it came out and mainly tasted buttery. The naan was good as were the sauces to begin with. The service is also nice as is the general ambience. We may have chosen dishes... More

Pretty average Indian I thought. We asked for spicy but the curries came out very creamy and mild. They were tasty, but based on the prices and the reviews of Tandoor we were expecting better. Not really top notch curry and naan. More like what I might expect to get at a shopping mall food court. On the bright side,... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
