Description: Sizzling Tandoor features a royal array of authentic North Indian cuisine. We are committed to preserving the culture and tradition of the region with the utmost standards within culinary experiences. Our versatile menu offers a selection of fresh and natural ingredients, wholesome sauces and flavourful spices. Following the success of our first downtown location, Since opening our doors in 2012, we have been named the best Indian Restaurant three years in a row in Victoria. Tandoor means "clay oven." It is traditionally used for the baking of bread, meat, poultry and fish. The clay oven - for oil and fat-free cooking - is practical and energy-efficient. Today's taste and health conscious consumers will find Tandoor cooking truly compatible and modern. All of our food is natural and freshly-prepared daily on the premises with no additives or preservatives. Our Chef's endeavor to create a large variety of savory clay oven barbecued dishes and exotic curries for your tasting journey.

Reviewed 23 November 2013

Woeful Indian food. The pakora's we ordered were embarrassing. Far too many onions are used in the curries to the extent that the tikka masala was just a big bowl of minced and chopped onions, dominating the flavour. The prawns were clearly cheap and recently defrosted and I had to pay $18 for 6 of them. The double portion of rice was smaller than a single serving anywhere else. The decor and atmosphere are poor and the service was no better than adequate.

Oh, and my wallet is over $50 lighter for privilege of this pathetic restaurant experience. Avoid.

“Modern decor, good service”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Food is good, service is fast, décor is more simple casual than the overtly Indian theme of many Indian restaurants.

“Very reasonable”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

I enjoyed the Indian buffet which has quite an array of well prepared dishes; I especcially enjoyed the Butter Chicken. My wife suffers from an intolerance to tomatoes which made her unable to have the buffet as most items had tomato in them. Our server was very helpful so Lynn could have something prepared with her dietary needs in mind. Tandoori Lamb was chosen and the dish was very tasty. I have been to both locations of this establishment and they both have good food reasonably priced.
