For anyone knowing anything about Argentina it can be hard to find anywhere that serves spicy food. We have been to a couple of the other 'Indian' restaurants in BA only to be served meat stew, without any spice. So we were really pleasantly surprised by Tandoor. A smart little restaurant, with good service and pretty good curries - at... More

Had dinner at Tandoor for a change during our 2 week trip. The service & atmosphere was fantastic and the owner is truly a nice person. He went around and made sure that everyone was having a great experience and enjoying their food. He was also kind enough to buy our group dessert which was greatly appreciated. The food is... More

Just big enough to have a varied menu, yet still small enough to allow for personal attention. Dinner was delightful and the service was terrific.

A real find in Buenos Aires (where ethnic food options are limited). The curries are decent and you can ask for spicy - another tricky thing to find in this city. Romantic, candlelit atmosphere. Great experience overall. Slightly large portions, so I probably wouldn't get appetizers again.

Just down the street from the Xul Solar museum. We stopped here for lunch....excellent chicken korma, lentils, delicate naan and tasty dip for bread. Quiet and restful, spacious and full of light. Indian couples eating here...a good sign. Gracious chef, from the south. Service slow but good. We'll return!

This was remarkably good Indian fare. Tried salmon in curry for the first time and was not disappointed. The streets outside are busy but the restaurant itself is pretty tranquil. I went for lunch on a Saturday and there seemed to have been only 3 other tables occupied. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and did his job with... More

Being an Indian and that to from North Of India, i know what to look into a Cuisine branded under TANDOOR Badge. And this is, way below average. Surprisingly the Tandoori Bread was Good however the use od Spices in the chicken Dish Offered was really not up to the mark. Too much turmeric and to less of Black Pepper... More

We had just returned from a trip to the Antarctica and were craving Indian Food. We found this place and it really hit the spot. The staff was very friendly, as was the chef who agreed to talk to us when we requested it. He recommended for us a special meal and we really enjoyed it.

After a few months of travelling without an Indian curry I was looking forward to one in BA. Being from the UK means we are spoiled with good curries! However i was disappointed - the curry just isn't that good, it is a little expensive and the beer is over priced! Pros: good service, good portions, nice building. Avoid the... More
