My husband and I enjoyed a dinner date at the Westlake location of Cafe Tandoor. The service was quick and very friendly. The presentation was perfect and the food had a fabulous flavor. We also found a Groupon that was perfect for our meal. Overall great experience we will be back!

We live across the street and just decided to try this place. It was a good. We ordered chicken tikka and mutter paneer kids meals. The chicken was very tender; my daughter loved it. There were large chunks of paneer and each meal came with ample rice and naan. My husband got chicken tikka masala. It wasn't the usual creamy... More

This is a local Indian restaurant and I'm so glad we have it. The food is very good and the family style dining makes it affordable. You can get the dishes made with your desired level of spice, and their mild truly is mild, so don't be afraid of Indian food! I prefer most things at a medium level because... More

Cafe Tandoor specializes in Indian food. We found the dishes to be good. Staff is ready to modify these to some extent to suit your taste. Vegetable main dishes are served with Rice. We found Paneer Makhani, Aloo Ghobi and Cucumber Raita to be good. But Tandoori Roti was average. The place is quite spacious with average ambience.

What I liked best about this Indian restaurant was that they give you a choice of how hot you want your food, from 1 mild to 10 very hot. I ordered a 4, which was easy eating. One of the others in our group ordered an 8 and he also enjoyed his food, though he was sweating! We were in... More

Tasty food at a short distance. Good ambience, which lacks in most Cleveland restaurants. Ordered masala kulcha and mushroom saag. Would definitively go back.

The food at Cafe Tandoor is just average. I love Indian food maybe more than any other ethnic choice. I've traveled to India for the sole reason of experiencing authentic Indian food. The food here is ok but it falls short and really comes across as bland. I will go back again in the hope they will kick it up... More

Excellent food in a nice atmosphere. Know that you will be dining, however. Food takes a little longer to prepare since it is fresh but it is enjoyable to "dine" and not feel rushed. Good selection of dishes, including vegetarian selections.

This was a quaint restaurant. It is relaxing and a slow pace which is stated on the menu because they cook to order, so they want time to prepare your food. Some of the Indian flavors were a little much for me, however I do like to try new food. Only tried two different curries, the lamb with cashew cream... More
