Our assessment of Da Tandoor is based on several visits -- wonderful each time. We first saw the restaurant featured on the cover of a local magazine the day we were in Victoria, decided to take a chance, and were overwhelmed by the taste and delicacy of each dish. Perhaps the quality varies from time to time, because it's hard from our experience to imagine the lukewarm reviews of some others, if they are lovers of Indian food. Having sought out Indian restaurants in London, Chicago, and New York over the years, I would say that our best meals at Da Tandoor are the equal of the best anywhere.

Very good food, generous portions, surprisingly inexpensive.

I tried 3 Indian restaurants in 3 days and this was my favourite. Spice level of "medium" was on the mild side of medium. Garlic naan was a unique stuffed style that I haven't seen elsewhere, very good. Their plain naan was more traditionally but also good. Good service, great food, excellent price.

Fantastic food experience.
Butter chicken and saffron cooked rice were the two clear winners.
We tried a few other items, everything was seasoned perfectly
Fresh made naan bread (yum)

We will certainly go back

The service was good but the food is absolutely not worth it. I found the meal bland.
The tandoori roti was like a thin crust pizza bread.
The malai kofta was tasteless with no sign of the creamy gravy that's supposed to accompany this curry. (that's the Malai part of the dish)
Surprisingly, this is the only Indian restaurant I've ever been to that doesn't have any paneer dishes.

The only good thing about the meal was the vegetable biryani and the papad.
