My husband and I love Indian cuisine and because we used to live in Manhattan, NY, we had the pleasure to eat in some of the best Indian restaurants. We have tried other Indian restaurants in Sarasota/ Bradenton area and we were very disappointed. A...friend suggested Tandoor and we gave it a try. Now is one of our favorite restaurants! The food is delicious and the service is great! Definitely is going to be one of our regular places to eat!More

We sat outside and watched the beautiful full moon rise. The staff are great and the food is really authentic so it’s fabulous - this could easily become one of our favorite restaurants

We love Tandoor so much! EVERY dish is cooked to order with love, and the family recipes that have been passed down through generations can be experienced in every bite. We are so happy to be able to venture out again and visit this wonderful...hard working family and are thankful that they have been able to make it through these trying times! Their food is outstanding! Anyone that has the audacity to leave negative reviews for hard-working families in our local community restaurants during this time- shame on you! please recognize that nothing is normal, everyone is doing their best to come back from this global pandemic, and if you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem. Be patient and please be understanding if your food Takes a little longer than expected. AND, say thank you!More

I admit I have a love affair with Indian food, so my friend and I chose to eat here as a no brainer when we were running errands in the UTC area anyways. And what a great choice we made! The food was just delightful-...I don’t even remember the name of what I got sadly, but it was a creamy spinach chicken dish that was phenomenal and completely passed my expectations! And their rice was cooked PERFECTLY- I mean, I love rice and I have never had rice this wonderful and well done, it was not too sticky but still so soft and moist and wow what the heck. Our waiter Andre was so nice as well and really great at explaining and recommending dishes, though he wasn’t always the most attentive at times he still definitely deserves some recognition. I’m really just overall highly impressed with this place and will 10/10 be back!More

We love their biryani dishes, but everything is good and they will adjust the "heat" to your liking. Surprisingly, they have a decent wine list as well.

We found Tandoor about eight years ago, and as my 90 year old father said today while dining, "I've never been disappointed."

This is a great restaurant. They have a diverse menu and do an exceptional job at spicy curries and specialty dishes. The butter chicken and the lamb curry were both delicious. The garlic naan is excellent. This is a great lunch option when shopping in...the area. We found the pricing quite reasonable and the manager was very friendly and helpful.More
