A really good dinner out. The Naan is warm and the sauces that come with it are always fresh and yummy. Ordered the chicken tikka masala and was not disappointed. Love how they adjusted the spiciness for me without an issue. I will be back.

as a regular diner in Portland, I thought I knew all the hidden gems. Yesterday we discovered tandoor & I'm so glad that we did. If you can overlook the 'over the top decor', you are in for a treat. Excellent authentic indian dishes, spiced to perfection. I've walked by so many times & so pleased we decided to give... More

Stopped by on the way back from Bar harbor in maine. Had looked it up in Trip Advisor and saw it had decent ratings. Food was OK, a little on the bland side. Decor was interestingly done. Small place, and had only 1 waiter, who initially was a little stiff and then warmed up. All in all, was not too... More

This was a real gem of a restaurant - the food is South Indian, and the dishes were fresh, flavourful and truly spicy upon request (not the 'fake-spicy' that you get for people whose taste buds are not yet accustomed to chili spice). I was there with 7 others, and we all raved about the different dishes we each ordered;... More

Greeted with a smile. Waiter was pleasant. Was not impressed with the food. Bland flavors. Portions were fine. Left full but like I said, not impressed.

A nice location in the Old Port; they have all of the standard fare you would want in an Indian restaurant. It is always fresh and tasty and the service is excellent. We get take out once or twice a month as well.

I was in Portland for four months, years back and I happened to stumble in on the Tandoor. I was hooked. I worked in the Old Port so I was able to come back and eat lunch just about every day. I sampled all the meat entrees on the luch menu and never was disapointed. The meals are very affordable... More
