We are committed to preserving the culture and tradition of the region with the utmost standards within culinary experiences. Our versatile menu offers a selection of fresh and natural ingredients, wholesome sauces and flavourful spices. Following the success of our first downtown location, Since opening our doors in 2012, we have been named the best Indian Restaurant three years in a row in Victoria. Tandoor means "clay oven." It is traditionally used for the baking of bread, meat, poultry and fish. The clay oven - for oil and fat-free cooking - is practical and energy-efficient. Today's taste and health conscious consumers will find Tandoor cooking truly compatible and modern. All of our food is natural and freshly-prepared daily on the premises with no additives or preservatives. Our Chef's endeavor to create a large variety of savory clay oven barbecued dishes and exotic curries for your tasting journey.
