An Indian Restaurant with all the care and genuine heart of a family business. It's a wonder that such friendly place with such good prices remains in such premium and convenient location. Recommend visits during saturday. Their meat samosa is best (my vegetarian mother vouches for the veggie ones). Order some of their mint sauce (not on the menu) to... More

Fantastic authentic Indian cuisine. Owner met us at our table and gave us an detail explanation of his restaurant and food craft. The food was very good left the restaurant extremely satisfied.

Fantastic non-veg Indian food, especially the kebabs as starters. Great Tandoori chicken and Naans. One of my favorites!

Living in Rio, we were craving for some good and spicy Indian food. We found it, not so far away in Sao Paulo. We were a party of three, had two curries, nan, raita and saffron rice. It was delicious and satisfied our needs until our next opportunity for good indian food. Service was friendly but not always attentive.

I've finally managed to find a very good Indian food restaurant in São Paulo. Being used to what they have in Europe, the scenery in Brazil had always been too plain. But this place surprised me. Very good food, tasty and spicy the way it should be!

The food could have been better for the price charged. The restaurant is small and need more lighting.

The samosas are among the best we have had with a flaky crust and tasty filling. The kabobs came hot and piping on skillet plates over a bed of onions. The meat was tender, well marinated... More

I visited the restaurant with my family on a Sunday noon. The restaurant had no waiting line, and the service was very fast. Both the chicken and vegetable samosas were really tasty, and the mango, pineapple and maracuja lassis were also very good. The chicken and rice plate was enough for two people in my opinion (I took home some... 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.
