Honest a -C rating on the food served. The dishes didn’t even taste anywhere near the real india food. The staff was courteous but the that does not serve the purpose.

I certainly don't agree with this review.With 24 years of existence & nearly 900 reviews on trip advisor including many Indians praising our food the review is certainly aimed at harming our restaurant.I hope you re consider your review. Namste

Although a little pricey, the food is very good and seems pretty authentic. The atmosphere and decorations are also nice.

I would have given 5 stars if the price of the beer was bot that outrageous. Everything great, excellent quality food, prices were quite reasonable, however the beer was really expensive. Next time I'll order water.

Since 1990, Tandoor offers Indian specialties in a cozy and casual environment. Upon arrival, adventurers are invited to take a journey to India. The restaurant welcomes guests with the replica of an Indian inspired palace door, along with sounds of Bollywood movies, as well as the scents and flavors of more than 70 typical dishes offered on the menu. The owners, a couple originally from Mumbai, selected the dishes carefully considering all kinds of palates, from those who enjoy spice in large, medium and small levels. Welcome to the most Indian restaurant in São Paulo.
