Queen's Tandoor offers a nice quiet place to relax and enjoy some good food. Restaurant is located on Thamrin road itself in the basement of Permata plaza...takes some time to find the place initially. The food was great. The "Go Green" mocktail was really refreshing and I would definitely recommend the same.

Very attentive and helpful staff, and the food was absolutely incredible.

Personally recommend the japanese tofu with minced meat, and the lamb - best i've ever had. T

The option of the chaat bar while waiting for your table is also ingenious, serving tasty, authentic Indian chaat!!

I just finished reading a couple of recent reviews about this restaurant being a "dump" & not tasting authentically Indian & can't agree completely with the reviewers. We've been regulars to this establishment since Queen's Tandoor was located on Jl. Veteran decades ago. The food has tasted progressively better & they now serve unique Indian "fusion" dishes like pizza, in addition to Indian-Indonesian style Chinese dishes.

If compared with restaurants in India, it's true that generally food in the country of origin taste better (& sometimes a lot better) than outside its "birthplace" (Japanese, Middle Eastern, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Korean & even American comes to mind). However, Queen's Tandoor has not disappointed & has adjusted their taste to locals & expats alike while updating their menu with new tastes.

We've also rarely had a problem with service; 1 of our regular servers even has our favorite dishes committed to memory. As it's very rare that we run into smokers or have problems with smoke smells clinging to the seats/walls, I don't remember if the restaurant has separate seating areas for smokers & non-smokers but do agree that the ventilation would need to be improved if smokers were allowed to mix in the same room.

The top Indian restaurant in Jakarta used to be Hazara (now in the same site as Lan Na Thai) & Indian Mantra (closed down years ago) but Queen's Tandoor has leaped to the top with consistency, new innovative dishes & decent (if unspectacular) service.

There are many vegetarian Indian & Chinese dishes to choose from & we love many of them! We were just there again today & some of our favorite dishes continue to taste consistently good:

1. Variety of naan bread flavors
2. Rice with butter & cottage cheese in hot bowl
3. The samosas
4. Any of the lamb dishes
5. Any of the curry dishes
6. Mango lassi

By the way, the restaurant is located in the basement of a building with marble-tiled walls & floors that houses several banks & offices on a protocol street in the Central Business District so it's far from being a "dump."

It's not cheap but it's a good deal compared with some of its competitors & mid-range Indian restaurants in the area.
