Welcome to Tandoor: Serving the Best Indian Food in Ho Chi Minh City Since 1997
Welcome to Tandoor! For over 20 years our goal has been to provide the best, authentic Indian cuisine to visitors and residents of Ho Chi Minh City. Our team of talented chefs have come to Vietnam from across India, bringing with them the knowledge and traditions of a variety of regional cuisines. If you love Indian food, and are living in or visiting Ho Chi Minh City, Tandoor is the best Indian restaurant for you to try!
In 1997, the founder of Tandoor, Mr Subhash, realised that there were no Indian restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City. Deciding that the restaurant should be well located for everyone to enjoy, he opened Tandoor Indian restaurant in District 1 and started serving authentic Indian food as the first Indian restaurant in Saigon! Nowadays, of course, there are many more Indian restaurants in the city, but Tandoor stands just a few metres from Nguyen Hue, and continues to follow Mr Subhash’s dream of serving the best, authentic Indian food to the people of Ho Chi Minh City!
When you arrive at Tandoor you may be surprised by the stylish, modern interior of this beautiful restaurant. The large windows that run the whole length of the restaurant make Tandoor a wonderful spot for watching the hustle and bustle of downtown Ho Chi Minh City, in the comfort of an air-conditioned dining room. The clean, minimalist interior is decorated with stylish accessories and decorative features that introduce a taste of Indian art and culture to the restaurant, whilst fresh flowers and simple table settings create an elegant atmosphere where you can relax and enjoy your favourite Indian dishes.

North Indian highlight: Chicken Butter Masala
Of course, there are many differences between North Indian and South Indian food, but generally speaking, North Indian food is richer and uses meat more often than in the South. A delicious Chicken Butter Masala is an excellent example of a popular northern Indian dish and is a best seller at Tandoor.
Using the freshest ingredients our chicken is first marinaded to make sure it is beautifully tender and flavourful when it arrives on your plate. Once infused with the delicious flavours of Tandoor’s special blend of expertly sourced spices the chicken is cooked in a tasty onion and tomato gravy. The result is a wonderfully creamy, and not too spicy, Chicken Butter Masala. Totally delicious whether served along with naan, roti or any of our wide variety of rice dishes.
South Indian highlight: Dosa
One of the Southern specialities at Tandoor, we actually offer a variety of dosa dishes including Mysore Masala Dosa and Rava Dosa for you to enjoy. If you are not familiar with this famous dish from the southern regions of India, ‘dosa’ are similar to a crepe or pancake. But rather than being made from flour and water, dosa are made from a batter made from lentils and rice. The batter is fermented before being cooked on a hot griddle pan and being served with a variety of fillings or sides. In India it is a popular breakfast dish, but we think that it tastes wonderful at any time of day!
