Great food option in BA

We were sick of having steak and pasta in BA and were looking for some other options. Tandoor is in a great location, on an intersection at Barrio Norte and hard to miss. Our flight was leaving in a few hours and we wanted to be seated before they officially opened. The owner (Pali) was extremely... read more

Tandoor has an excellent menu for lunch. We each got a set menu with different mains(chicken currys), Indian lemonade, rice, and one of us got the curry cake for dessert the other got the ice cream. All of the food was amazing! Good portions, great service, and excellent food.

Good quality food. Not too heavy or oily as Indian restaurants sometimes are. Efficient and friendly service. Not particularly authentic, but that doesn't mean it wasn't good. I'd readily go here again.

Very elegant Indian restaurant. We had lamb curry with 19 spices and prawn curry, both were delicious and moderately spicy. You should try their bread called "naan", they serve it with 4 Indian sauces. Be careful about the red sauce - it is sooooooo spicy. Very big portions.

It is a fine place mainly exotic but you will probably want to eat something else afterwards. The food is good though very spicy, service is ok. I believe it all has to do with the indians beign poor people, a lot of rice, a lot of sauce but not much meat ... You may try it!

Hi, We decided to order in and were tired of the more traditional Argentine fare and decided to go with one of our at home favorites, Indian. Used an on line ordering service called BuenosAiresDelivery.com which linked through the restaurants website and it went smooth and the food was great. It arrived very quickly in spiffy individual styrofoam bowls that... More

The food was good enough... but should it really cost over 1200 pesos for three people to have an appetizer & an entrée, with either 2 beers or cokes each?? On the other hand… I spent half of that amount taking two people for a nice steak dinner at Don Julio's the other night!

I absolutely LOVE Tandoor. Its 2 blocks away from my apartment, and this week I have been there 3 times. Since leaving the States, I have been craving Indian food, and when my boyfriend and I discovered this place we were in love. Being vegetarian, I can only speak for the non-meat dishes. Also the chef's are from India, so... More

I had the chicken tikka masala and my friend had the navratan korma. both dishes were pretty tasty but a little bland. Perhaps the staff are adjusting the dishes to the palate of those who frequent the restaurant and had I asked for my dish to be created with a little more "indian" in it, I would have been more...

Started with naan and dips which were excellent. Entrée of chicken kebab and prawn kebab from the tandoor, sensational. Main of lamb curry and chicken tikka curry followed by coffee and dessert all superb. Good deep flavours the equal of most in australia. Service was fast and friendly and spoke good english.menu in English also. Well worth going. Loved it.
