Love the food and ambiance. I've been coming here for years and would highly recommend it. There's something for everyone.

Ended up here as a fluke after driving 72 mi to nearby restaurant to find they didn’t offer the Greek dishes we wanted on Sat. & Sun. Glad we came here. Will be back for sure. The wife had a house salad & Seekh Kabab’s...(minced lamb). I had the Moglai Chicken Korma. We shared a Gulab Jamun dessert. Exceptionally flavorful. Came with a hard bread and 3 types of sauces. $54.00 with a 24% tip for Justim - a caring waiter who even offered more rice for my Korma. We opted for mild. If you like tasty Indian food, try Tandoor. You’ll be glad you didMore

I have been eating at Tandoor regularly since it was on Clark Road prior to the beautiful newer location on University by the mall. The owners are amazing people who do everything with love. The food and service is fantastic. I always take my guests...to Tandoor and have never had anything but a wonderful experience. I love the butter chicken, biriyani, madras, garlic nan, the kulfi.... pretty much everything. This is a wonderful restraurant for a romantic date, lunch with family or friends, or a birthday party. No doubt the best Indian food in Sarasota/Bradenton.More

We have been here many times. Sometimes just us, other times with family visiting and with friends. Never disappoints. We have tried other Indian places locally but always feel they never measure up to Tandoor. The ownership is always on duty and checking on customers.

We stopped here for lunch and found it reasonably good. My wife actually loved here Butter Masala dish, I tried the Tandoori Assortment Plate which was not special. The server was great, very helpful and enthusiastic. Personally, I prefer something more authentic and less Americanized....I don’t recall seeing any Indian patrons during our visit.More

fresh airy young energetic polite staff,...the food has substance,...and flavour it's presented well and they have an extensive menu with many options. everything is done very well the lamb biryani is excellent. it's exotic feeling to be there and you get a lot of family...diners so they cater to return clients. they welcome you like you're part of their family and the owners are gracious. the quality of the food is amazing and beautiful almost too pretty to eat but you'll be glad you did.More

We've been wanting Indian since moving here awhile back but just never made time for it until tonight. The food was very good and the spice levels were as desired. The Chicken Vindaloo and Tikka Masala both had their great tastes. The Chicken was a...little tough at times but almost every piece was perfectly cooked. The naan was good but not as soft as I like. The customer service was absolutely incredible. Every person was upbeat and friendly. That itself is worth mentioning. I do recommend here and would go again. It's not the best I've ever had bit overall very good.More

I'd heard good things about the place, but my dish was spectacularly poor. I had Saag with chicken. It is traditionally spicy, but the waiter asked if that's how I'd like it, which seemed good service. However, it tasted nothing like the Panjaabi Saag they...claimed. It was just SALT, so was DISGUSTING!! It didn't even taste like Saag (mustard greens). Also, it wasn't hot at all, so yet more disappointing. Other people's dishes were fine, but my meal was AWFUL. Plus, the waiter didn't check on how my meal was ever, so I wasn't very happy with the experience at all. I would NOT recommend at all.More

This is our favorite Indian restaurant in Sarasota. The owner is always kind and welcoming, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere pleasant. Our waiter, Justin, was friendly and attentive to our needs. He made great menu recommendations, checked in on us but was never...intrusive. The menu is reasonably priced for the quality of the food.More

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
