Have visited several times and the service and food is always excellent. Would recommend everything. If you're feeling braves or love a hot curry go for the TINDALOO, yes that's right, and you might make it to the VIP eaters board! Not for me though.

On a very HOT Adelaide night, my husband and I decided to go for an Indian meal and chose the Chefs of Tandoori. We were warmly welcomed. We ordered a glass of Pirra Mirra Shiraz each to start ($8.50 per glass). Unfortunately, it did not smell very nice and was promptly replaced. We decided to order the "meal for one"... More

The place has a unique vibe and I really like the decor. It's not too much one thing or the other. It's reasonably modern but the art is a definite nod to mother India. Plenty of room around the tables and The place settings are nice. It's good to get a proper napkin these days. Chairs are comfortable and table... More

Went here years ago- first time in about 8yrs. The service was okay, but the food was not as good as we've had elsewhere. We had a banquet for two- heaps of food. The entree platter of pakoras were lovely, the onion a bit oily and the prawn not crisp but flavour wise it was fine. The mains- the butter... More

Have visited several times. Being from the uk I look forward to a good Indian, and this is definitely one. Good service, even when busy with friendly staff. Good wine selection and excellent food. Would highly recommend. Also seen several large group tables, which don't seem to impact on the general service, which can sometimes happen.

Our party of 11 had an amazingly good meal at Malvern's Chefs of Tandoori. I have eaten some very good Indian meals in Adelaide but this was by far the very best. The restaurant has a pleasant ambience and the staff are attentive without being intrusive but it is the food which is supremely enticing. We ordered quite a large... More

I have been to the Chefs of Tandoori more times than I can count on two hands. The thing that stands out most about Chefs of Tandoori is the freshness and lightness of the curries. I would consider them the healthiest Indian restaurant in the area. The usual curries like Rogan Josh are not as oily. My favourite curries are... More
