Tandoor employs its namesake cooking vessel to deliver satisfying North Indian cuisine from their Jardim Paulista location. Owned and operated by Mumbai natives Lakhi and Mansha Daswani, the fare at Tandoor is far and away more traditional than almost any restaurant in Sao Paulo. Diners familiar with Indian fare will have an easy time navigating the menu of appetizers such as samosas and naan wraps, and the ordering only gets easier from there. A selection of grilled meats is available in all styles from mild masalas to spicy vindaloos. Vegetarian items are a bit more diverse, the focus on the specific ingredients rather than the level of heat. Signature items such as biryani are available, as well as a decent selection of naans and pilafs to accompany your dish. Tandoor's authenticity and dedication to traditional preparations set this Sao Paulo gem apart from the pack.
