First Review by Miker

knowledgeable staff - Edit

I have never felt so taken care of outside a vegan cafe!
Our waiter (Austin?) was perfect. He told us how the leaf indicates vegan dishes. When I asked if they had a sampler, he said the appetizer sampler could be made vegan.
He took the time to tell me that the green sauce that came with the table bread wasn’t vegan -I couldn’t believe it!
Beware: I love spicy food-so I ordered medium spice—it was super duper spicy.

I’m giving the highest stars based on service. If you like Indian food, you’ll enjoy this place.

(Too much seasoning for my taste)

Pros: many menu selections which are maked vegan, vegan mondays, courteous wait staff

Cons: buffet selections are not marked if vegan.

10/10, will go again! - Edit

After a disappointing experience across the plaza, my entire family was out at nine on a school night, wondering if there was still a place open the picky bunch would be okay with. Before our negative experience that night I had suggested Tandoor quite a few times, but my Mom was pretty nervous.

My stepfather and I walked in and were immediately greeted not only by the employees but the warm air, the amusing aroma, and the friendly atmosphere!

I had already checked the menu online a week before when I almost went with a group of friends, and was already aware that vegan options were labeled and could be done oil-free and sometimes salt-free! I ordered the 'aloo matar ki sabz' with out oil or salt and it arrived in less than twenty minutes! My stepfather ordered the tandoor chicken and had the vegetarian sampler.

The food was perfect, and although I am usually unable to find food (even Indian) spicy enough for me I left with tears in my eyes and a clear nose.

Next time I will make sure to take pictures of what I order, as there will definitely be a next time! I would recommend this to anybody and everybody!

Pros: Vegan options- TASTES GREAT!, Great atmosphere, Family friendly

Cons: No vegan appetizers that aren't fried.

Pretty good Indian food - Edit

We eat Indian vegan food often. This place had pretty good food and is worth it if you're craving those flavors. The place itself isn't that inviting--furniture is kind of run-down. But, good for a casual meal.

Pros: Good food, Lots of vegan options

Cons: Poor ambiance, So-so service

Great food - Edit

We had a group of 11 that eat at Tandoor tonight (1/27/2013). The hostess was super. The food was tailored to our specifications - no added salt and no oil. Additionally the level of spice was adjusted to each personal preference. Everyone was so happy with the quantity and quality of the food and service that we will be back.

Pros: Quality, Quantity, Service

Vegan Menu - Edit

We enjoyed a very nice dinner at Tandoor. The owner greeted us and was very happy to help us with suggestion from their vegan menu. They made special modifications to one of our selections and were very anxious to give us what we wanted. The service was attentive and we liked the food. I'm sure we will return again.

Pros: Good selection, Friendly staff, Good Value

Cons: Large open room

Vegan Menu a Pleasant Surprise - Edit

My wife and I stopped in yesterday evening to see what dishes they might be able to prepare as vegan to take home for dinner. As we stood outside before entering, a couple of people going in shared that their food is excellent. At the takeout counter, when I mentioned that we are vegan he quickly handed us their vegan menu, with a nice variety of entrees!
It was ready in about 20 minutes, as promised, and it didn't disappoint. I have sometimes been burned (literally!) when ordering Indian food in an unfamiliar place, so I ordered it mild. It was somewhat less spicy than I prefer, but that's not their fault. It was very tasty, though - the Baingan Bharta in particular had a very nice smoky tang. Everyone on the staff was very friendly and welcoming, and we really enjoyed the food, but they fell down in one respect - one lonely piece of paneer cheese found its way into the Mix Vegetable Curry.
Aside from that hopefully isolated occurrence, Tandoor is a welcome addition to our vegan options in Sarasota.

Pros: vegan menu, good food, very friendly!

Cons: stray piece of cheese
