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)....

Love the food and everything I've tasted there! If you're an Indian food lover, this is a real nice place. Try the typical bread with cheese, the traditional chicken with curry, the rice... All good!

I along with couple of my friends stopped for couple of days at São Paulo on our way to Rio-de-Janeiro in January 2016.

There were plenty of choices... More

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.
