“A bit disappointing but good nonetheless”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

The goods:
- Tablet menus. With easy-to-see pictures, these tablet menus were different!
- Security. The door is always closed, like many others have already mentioned. Somehow it made me feel more cozy!
- Good atmosphere & interior. The restaurant is very quiet, peaceful, and full of beautiful decorations.
- Friendly people. The servers were friendly, which is always nice.

The bads:
- On the pricey side. Yes, I know the others have made it clear that this is a high-end restaurant. I mean, the fact that they use tablets as menus instead of floppy, worn-out cardboard paper clearly proves that. It's good if you're willing to spend money -- bad if you're on a budget.
- Not Indian food. While I do know that this is a fusion restaurant, and some of you may be thinking, "Indian? Where the hell does it say 'Indian'?" But we were told/recommended that this was an Indian-fusion place. As lovers of curry, naan bread, and samosas, we were pretty excited. The results? Nope. Not again.
- Food is so-so. There were a lot of elderly people in the restaurant while we were there. They seemed to be good friends with the chef. I could see that most of them came here often. I wasn't too enthusiastic about the food like they were.

We won't go there again. The food was O.K -- I really don't understand all the hype that's behind it -- and everything, overall, was just O.K. I've eaten at better restaurants with better deals (in terms of food quality, waiter service, atmosphere). The food's not enough to make me go back.

Dear Guest:

Thank you for posting your comments on TripAdvisor, following your Tandory culinary experience.

The Tandory staff was very thrilled to read you appreciated its attentive service and our decorations room.
About the cost, the price has a 18% discount if you pay with credit cards from another country, you will note it in your credit card bill.
However, our prestigious Chef Gabriel Coquel was very disappointed to reed you did not really enjoy his food that you found neither awe inspiring nor particularly innovative.

There are many different options on our menu, and there should have been a selection that would have better suited you. Our Chef’s customers ‘delight and well-being are essential, but let us remind that for a correct assessment would be good to give us another chance.
We hope to see you soon and let us know about your favorite flavors.

I will simply state, a truly amazing dining experience. The food is not merely the best I've had in Uruguay, it is amongst the best I've had anywhere. The service was top notch, the servers treated us like family. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Uruguay.

The place is very cute, tablet menu with pictures! The door is always closed and guests have to bell to get inside. Food is so good that I am going back soon.
