Having lived in England as a student, then in the Middle East for a decade, I have learnt to love Indian food and have actually craved it occasionally during my South American expedition. We therefore decided to give Tandoor a try whilst in Buenos Aires, and it had the extra benefit of being conveniently located next to our apartment in... More

Best place to have Indian food in Argentina. We used to live in Uruguay and used to visit Buenos Aires very frequently. One of the must do things on trip was to have dinner at this place. They have a wonderful service and great food.

OMG! I discovered Indian cuisine five years ago in Canada, where there's A LOT of Indian immigration and REAL Indian restaurants that serve authentic dishes. I've been addicted to Indian food since! I'm a foodie and I know Indian cuisine pretty well and I have to confess that I was pretty skeptical about going to an Indian restaurant in Argentina,... More

Visited here for dinner. Menu is very much limited however taste of food reassembles Indian taste. Good for fine dining.

It was quite an enjoyable experience. The restaurant is clean and cozy. The food was excellent. I didn't have too many dishes, since I was there by myself. I tried the Chicken Masala, the Basmati Rice and some extra Naan. Everything was, as I already said it, excellent. If you are tired of the usual stuff around here, this is... More

Indian food is our favourite, we eat a lot of it back home. So when we heard of this place we just had to investigate it, we're glad we did. Right from stepping through the door we were looked after really well & made to feel welcome. Their excellent English worked better than my bad Spanish (!) and we both... More

I am really surprised to see so many glowing reviews of this place on TA. It just wasn't good.. Saturday evening dinner... The place was packed. Service was sub-optimal and wait-staff really did not know anything on the menu that well. I know Indian food and can ask some probing questions - the waitperson had a "deer in headlights" look...

We ate here for lunch on a weekday. We were surprised to find out that they don't offer butter chicken--usually a staple at all Indian restaurants. The food was pretty good and the portion sizes were generous. We had the chicken korma and the tandoori chicken tikka. It was a little on the pricey side, but I'd say fair price... More

Not being myself an enthusiastic of spicy food this will be a short post rather than a review. My friends insisted that it was "the" place for Indian food. We let the waitress to choose for us, one selection of appetizers and one for main dish, half vegetarian and the other half cordero. Food was delicious, the host (Andres) very... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
