There is a good reason this restaurant has been in business since 1991. It has an extensive menu to satisfy the pickiest eater. The service is very efficient and friendly. All the dishes we had were fantastic. I have visited India many times and the food here is as genuine as you'll get here in California. A wonderful meal and... More

I was referred to this restaurant by the concierge at the hotel was staying in LAX. The 4 stars is for the service. Extremely attentive people, cozy atmosphere, and good food. We ordered Vegetable Samosas (good w/ the tamarind sauce), Aloo Gobi (good), Dal (didn't enjoy this one) and Saag Paneer with naan which was my absolute favorite. I'm glad... More

I've never been disappointed when visiting Tandoor A India - not with the food anyways. The dining areas are "quaint." The restaurant is located in what appears to be an old house of some kind. As long as it's not too busy, you will likely find the environment very friendly. Highly recommended!

The nan was good as well as the basmati rice. However the chicken tika masala was average to less. It was a bit heavy on the oil (puddle on top of food) and lacking in flavor. More cream and bland than most places I have been to. If I try this place again, I will pick a different entree.

Both, veg & non veg Indian food is available. Quality of food, service & ambience are average. You may opt for this place, if any other better option for Indian food is not available in nearby vicinity.

I ate here three times while in the area on business. Very small restaurant in Playa del Rey which looks like a converted house. Food was well prepared and authentic. I experienced prompt service (usually around 8 in the evening), but with only one waiter, I can see why some other reviewers have complained about slow service when they are... More

I loved everything about this place. The restaurant is built on a hillside with a very steep driveway up to a small parking lot. (Lots of parking on the street) Split into two separate dining areas with the kitchen in between, the inside was just adorable! We ate upstairs. The wait staff doesn't work specific tables, but all work together... More

We located Tandoor A India Restaurant through the GPS locator - pleasantly surprised that it was hardly a couple of miles away from our place. Had an awesome quick lunch - very much Indian. The staff were very courteous - even spoke to one of us in Hindi!!!
