Sao Paulo is humongous so it is 100% sure you will find many ways of restaurant serve the same cuisine. But remember when you go to a restaurant the food MUST be 100% delicious; it is their duty; no exceptions. What will improve your experience is the service! Tandoor has a very nice atmosphere. The owner (I guess) was the... More

Great food, resoanable prices, freindly staff and a beautiful ambience. It is easy to reach and we had a great time there. The food is authentic indian and the spice levels can be customised to your taste.

I went there with an Indian friend. I ordered Murg Makhani which was delicious. Naans were very good as well, and then I had Julab Jamun. Reasonable prices for visitors (but a bit expensive for locals).

Tandoor is a rarity in Brazil: an Indian restaurant that serves reasonably authentic Indian cuisine. That said, it is the details that let it down. While the food is reasonably tasty, it lacks a certain zing that great tasting Indian food has. In terms of heat, having opted for a murg (chicken) vindaloo, the dishes are very mild; in Indian...

Tandoor was the closest Indian restaurant decided to have lunch there. Ordered Vegetarian Thalli. Looked good while it was served but taste was ok. Samosas in the thalli were cold as if they were cooked much earlier. curries were sort of ok, Nan was good. Comparatively service was good but price was almost US$ 27/- equivalent. Overpriced for quality of... More

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.
