Went to Tandoor with Brazilian and Indians friends visiting from India. I found the food very good, authentic and out Indian friend also liked it. We had panner, butter chicken, dal and bread. Service could improve, they were not friendly but worth a visit.

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.
