It is in a basement of a small hotel , the food is really really good and authentic, we had different plates of appetizers and main courses which we shared and everything was very delicious and well prepared.

This was below the hotel where I was staying, and the food was fantastic! Food was really spicy, indian style. A lot of people come to this restaurant because is the oldest in Tehran. Staff was a little distant but they did their job, saddly english was not their forte. Eating in the outside area in the night is beautiful,... More

This resturant is one the oldest indian resturant in Iran. The foods are really good and the staffs are nice. The taste of the foods are matched to Persian sapor. The place of Tandoor is not very proper specially for lunch but I think the foods quality is worth.

As my opinion, this restaurant is the best of Indian restaurant in Iran. The taste of foods are very likely the originals. Also this restaurant has a very small yard which is very beautiful in night of summer and spring. I suggest to everybody to go and try "sizllar".

First the food was tasty! And the courtyard dining venue was really nice. It was a relief to eat something different (sick of kebabs) in Tehran. It was a good price quality choice!

This is the very first time I ve been to Tandoor and Indian is the cuisine I have at home twice a week as well as eating out once a month. Tandoor's meals are rather authentic yet do lack hotness. We ordered two vegetarian dishes, spinach paneer and gobi alloo. The first dish was cooked properly, it was light and... More

We went there to have small birthday party, therefore the only good thing about it was the part that they brought the cake that we bought earlier. Food was not good in general and out of five dishes we ordered, one returned to kitchen and others taste normal or bad. Despite number of people they have, service is poor. They... More

Our last visit was very unpleasant. Food was on the verge of awful, rice was cheap Indian rice - not the lively tasting and smelling Iranian rice they used to serve, even the Indian tea tasted horrible. I would not at all recommend going there. Try Taj Mahal instead.
