Very authentic restaurant: the smells, the decorations, the service.... I hunk it misses the stronger tastes of India, maybe to attract more public (and that's good) but for me it was a miss.

Tastes lacking the characteristic lovely intensity of Indian cuisine. The fish and the lamp tandoori were particularly bad. The seating area at the back where we sat was extremely hot and very bad ventilated and left us with all over our clothes with fried smell... Most disturbing of all were the bamboo dishes in which they serve naan breads and... More

I've been all over this planet and unless you make it to Mumbai, you won't find better Indian food. Everything from the tandoori chicken to the daal masala -delicious!! We had a nice chat with the owner and he was genuinely glad we chose to eat at his establishment. When I return to São Paulo, I will be back.

Wow. I am always looking for great Indian food, no matter what country I'm in. This was a great choice. It was a 10 minute walk from our hotel, so it was easy to get to. The food was just fantastic. I would say it was probably the most authentic Indian food I've ever had. The service was fast and... More

Nice food with the real indian flavour! It's a piece of India in São Paulo! Very nice restaurant! Try the Tandoori chicken it's a contrast of taste!

Since 1990, Tandoor offers Indian specialties in a cozy and casual environment. Upon arrival, adventurers are invited to take a journey to India. The restaurant welcomes guests with the replica of an Indian inspired palace door, along with sounds of Bollywood movies, as well as the scents and flavors of more than 70 typical dishes offered on the menu. The owners, a couple originally from Mumbai, selected the dishes carefully considering all kinds of palates, from those who enjoy spice in large, medium and small levels. Welcome to the most Indian restaurant in São Paulo.
