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.

Consistently delicious, authentic Indian food. Wonderful vegetarian options. Always a favorite for our family.

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

I've been going to Cafe Tandoor for years, and although I never found it to be extraordinary, I was always satisfied with the food and service and always felt comfortable there. I would recommend the restaurant to friends, especially since the West Side of Cleveland is somewhat sparse when it comes to Indian restaurant locations. I went there with friends... More

The food was OK. Smaller amounts than most Indian restaurants and we ordered medium spice and there was zero heat. Given the small portions, the food was overpriced. The several types of naan was good. Very unremarkable. We're disappointed based on the other reviews.

I have been going to Cafe Tandoor for years and it's always delicious! Last night we started with an order of the vegetable samosas which were delicious. For main course my husband and I ordered Rogan Josh and Chivken Tikka Masala. We enjoyed both with naan and saffron rice. Great meal and dining experience. We also enjoyed sitting on their... More

The food is very good. Service is friendly and attentive. It is strange to have to buy rice and naan with entrée purchase. It was all very good though and worth the few extra bucks. Will go back for sure. I definitely recommend this place if you have a hankering for Indian food.

Food was OK, hardly great, service is in need of help! S L O W. I will happily wait while the chef creates a masterpiece but having to wait for a cocktail is just plain dumb. The owners really need to work on that. Maybe this isn't fair, but charging $14 for an entree that doesn't even include rice annoys... More
