Sit back and relax and enjoy a variety of flavors

Delicious food; nice atmosphere. All food is prepared fresh so be prepared to "dine" and not "eat and run"

This was a quaint restaurant. It is relaxing and a slow pace which is stated on the menu because they cook to order, so they want time to prepare your food. Some of the Indian flavors were a little much for me, however I do like to try new food. Only tried two different curries, the lamb with cashew cream... More

CAFÉ TANDOOR 30030 Detroit Road Westlake, Ohio We happened to pass by an Indian restaurant in the West Bay area of Crocker Park in Westlake. I believed the place was quite adequate for a group of 100 guests or more. It is spacious and tables are set apart for a good conversation without upsetting other diners. A small bar at... More

I like to try new dishes each time I go. Each new dish seems to become a new favorite. I'm not an expert on Indian food, but this restaurant may change that. Usually not busy at all at lunch. Service very friendly and helpful for a customer with lots of questions. The ambience is nothing special. I am becoming a... More

We stop here at least once a week for dinner. The food is always wonderful, the service is friendly, prompt and very attentive. Rani is the chef, he has never made us a dinner we didn't totally love. My kids have eaten here, my daughters first food was the lentil soup! Always a great bet for a great dinner!

I have found that sometimes their curry tastes good and sometimes it is very bland. I have a favorite Indian restaurant in Utah that serves up quite the delicious flavors and sadly Café Tandoor does not compare. But because there are not many Indian restaurants around, I find myself giving it multiple chances. One negative thing for me is that... More

We have been going to Cafe Tandoor for more than three years on a regular basis and the food is consistently high quality. The service is also always good. The prices are slightly higher then average for good Indian cuisine.

I hope this place stays open! I say that not because of anything negative, other than I am surprised it isn't busy very often (which can be good if you are in a hurry or want take-out). I was in India for 5 weeks and when I came back was hooked, but trying to create it at home is a... More

I've eaten a lot of indian food in my life because I have a lot of indian friends! This place is pretty consistent and the food is fresh and tasty. I think they had a chef change because a couple of years ago I thought the food was a little Meh. The chicken cubes were not tender in the chicken... More
