I've been to Tandoor many times, though not so recently. Over time my experience has mostly been positive and this visit was no exception. I was with my lawyer who had done some work for me pro bono, and I was thanking him with a simple lunch. He chose the restaurant and knew a lot about this cuisine. We started... More

The atmosphere is cozy and relaxing. The food is amazing! My husband is from England so he has had his fare share of Indian food, and yet he still agreed that this place has some of the best Indian food he's ever tried.

Had dinner there before a show at the Merrill. There was only one other party seated when the three of us arrivedabout 6:15, but within 20 minutes or so every table was filled. There were about 12 tables and one, yes one, waiter. A woman did come out of the kitchen and helped with water gasses, etc, but the waiter... More

We love to eat here when we visit our kids. They have a great atmosphere, drinks & food. A different menu from the regulars. I love their sauces. Get a great meal. Family friends, but high end.

Ordered Garlic Naan, Vegetable Biriani, Mixed Grill, Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Rogan Josh. All dishes were delicious. I ordered between medium and hot, for me, it was fairly mild. Next time I'll order the food "hot". Price was very reasonable. Lots of people in the restaurant, which is usually a good sign. Friendly staff (owner)

We had a quick lunch here, driving thought Portland. Great choice! Food was amazing! And service was fast, professional and friendly. Coming from east end of long island, we thought $24 lunch for two people is a joke! Only downfall of this place is a bathroom, that needs to be updated, but I can not give this place less than...

Don't listen to the negative reviews from these ritsy individuals. This place is bottom line. Good service, decently priced, and good food. I do agree with the one comment above that it wasn't spicy enough. That was our first visit and then we asked them to kick it up a notice our second visit and it was perfect. Fresh garlic... More

Good but if you're looking for spicy look elsewhere. I asked for extra spicy and when it came out it was made mild. Smaller size portions than some indian restaurants that I've been to.

The guy who took care of us was rude. He acted like he didn't care. And the chicken we ordered was stale and stinker and when we complained he just rudely said its how it is ! What a waste of time and money and my stomach hurts too ! Such terrible quality !! Please avoid it

Thank Rummya
