Variety is the spice

A smart establishment, with friendly waiters who take time to have a chat and also to advise on the strengths of the various dishes. My lamb dish was spiced up a bit as requested, and the `house red` was very palatable. Generous portions, and reasonably priced.

Very nice waiter, who presented himself and brought us an appetizer with naan + 3 dips. Tasted home made and very fresh. For a starter we shared Sheekh Kebab of Lamp. 4 out of 5 in taste. Main dish: Chicken Korma and Chicken Tikka Masala. Both of these were the best Korma/Tikka we have tasted, and well spiced. The waiter... More

Tandoor is a very welcome change from Buenos Aires meat binges. The main room is simple and elegant, clean and welcoming. The staff are friendly, courteous and professional. The lunch menu offers a fine selection and the prix fixe menu is especially good value as it includes beverage and dessert. The curried chicken and curried lamb are excellent, and the... More

This used to be my favourite restaurant in the Barrio Nortre area. However, the menu have not changed in god knows how many years, and the quality of the meat - not to mention how little they serve - doesn't make it work. However - they are good at finding the right "spicy" level if you explain you are "indian... More

Nice atmosphere and very good dishes, well prepared by the Indian chefs. My 'Pollo Tikka Masala' (chicken) was delicious, as well as the wonderful dessert 'Badam-Pista Kulfi'. The only downside: the portions were very small. Five little pieces of chicken floating in a lot of sauce.

Good food, and any place that is willing to serve fiery food in Argentina should be encouraged. Tandoor has tasty food, and is willing to give you serious spice, if you ask. Drinks were tasty, I had a ginger lemonade. Wines are obviously great, since this is Argentina. Desserts are largely traditional, so a nice break from the norm. Not... More

Being an Indian and that too vegetarian, I always miss the real Indian food. After travelling to Patagonia when I and my wife landed in Buenos Aires, the first thing we did was find an Indian restaurant. We were lucky to find Tandoor, which was 5-10 minutes walk from where we stayed. We just loved the food, ambiance, service and... More

I've been eating here for years and not a single bad experience that I can remember. The owner is always there making sure the quality never falters. I've tried just about everything on the menu and its all top notch. The prices are very reasonable for the class of the place and the quality of the food. This is my... 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.
