Having tried several Indian restaurants in the US, and in Latin America, I would rate Tandoor in São Paulo one of the best in this part of the world. The best part is it is taste-appropriate for both Indians and locals alike. I repeat-visited this...More

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.
