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

We had an amazing diner at Tandoor. Is the best tradicional indian restaurant of Sao Paulo. The owners are so kind and gave us lots of tips of indian vegetarian food. I absolutely recommend. Wish I could come back there soon.

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!

If you intend to have a real Indian Cuisine experience that's the right place. Excelent and affordable option for vegetarians and non vegetarians with a menu plenty of choices. Confortab;e place with 3 dinning rooms but all the time they are taking care of you. Awesome experience for a quick lunch or even a relaxing dinner. If you are lucky... More

What a pleasure to go out and eat and find people who speak English in SP. The owner is genuine India and clearly knows his food. His staff speak English too. The food was perfect and my wife and I will certainly return. If you are in Sao Paulo but are English and used to English food then you will... More

Very tasty food, charming hosts and great down-to-earth atmosphere. I will show up again! Try murg makhani (chicken) or Jhinga naryal (shrimp) and the mango icecream (and you will probably stop eating any other one)....

Description
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.
