I have been enjoying this restaurant since I was a child. Very cozy restaurant, and always great food. A classic Portland establishment!

We tried this restaurant for the first time by ordering take out and spent over 60 dollars for it. The first thing we noticed once opening the bag was that the portions were very small for the price. One of the entrees we ordered was the tandoori chicken. At first bite it was obvious that the chicken had been cooked... More

The food here was rich and delicious and there were plenty of different kinds of curry to choose from. Its also cheaper than most places in town. The atmosphere is casual. A good place to get take away and they have lunch specials. I will come back here. The service could be better though. The waiter was slow to take... More

We stopped for lunch at Tandoor Restaurant and found the food to be quite tasty. The service was fast, but considering that the restaurant was empty, except for one other guest, that would be expected. Our server was very quiet, but polite and he provided some tips for navigating the city on our quick visit. All-in-all, the menu offered basic... More

I love Indian and love trying lots of new places. The food here is good overall. Having a lot of recent comparisons this is the lower end of the Indian Restaurants I have reviewed lately. The Paneer Pakora is good, though I wish it had more of the spice/salt on it, it ended up being a little bland. The Garlic... More

We stopped here for dinner and were not impressed. The decor was dated and the food was nothing special. You could get it as hot as you liked though. No problem getting a table.

This was one of the worst experience of Indian food in our trip to Portland. The food served to us was stale and rotten. Even more was the attitude of the lady owner. It seems like she has something against Indians , which is ironic looking at her. When asked for a proper bill , she shouted at us like... More

Met some friends here for lunch who had dined here before. The food was pretty good. Especially liked the naan stuffed with nuts and raisins. Also enjoyed the lentil and pea soup. Others had the coconut soup and loved it. The decor is average. Not upscale by any means. But the price is not upscale either so that is fine... More

I've been to Tandoor many times, though not so recently. Over time my experience has mostly been positive and this visit was no exception. I was with my lawyer who had done some work for me pro bono, and I was thanking him with a simple lunch. He chose the restaurant and knew a lot about this cuisine. We started... More
