We went here last week and enjoyed a nice meal. The restaurant is in a nice location under the Aegean building. We had a couple of curries, rice, naan breads all were tasty and served at the requested spice level. Service is friendly and the...place has a nice ambiance.More

We have just got back to Adelaide from 5 days up on the Gold Coast. One of the highlights was supposed to have been a trip down memory lane and have a meal at The Tandoori Place. Admittedly, the last time we were patrons at...The Tandoori Place was way back in 2008(ish). Back when The Tandoori Place had around 20 venues. Now there is only the one, at Surfers Paradise. I remember the food back then being exquisite. Unfortunately this venue has dropped in standards. The Lassi's were served warm.....and all be it trivial.....the glasses they were served in didn't match. We ordered garlic prawns and mixed appetiser to start. To follow we ordered lamb gosht, prawn masala and peshwari naan for mains. Both starters and mains were served with no thought put into presentation and to be honest, we have had better take aways. Overall unhappy with the quality of the food, presentation and ambience of the restaurant. It was extremely chilly in the restaurant which didn't really add to the experience. There were 4 guys sat in the corner of the restaurant, friends of the owner it seemed, drinking BYO beers which doesn't really look good in a restaurant. For me, this place has lost it's appeal.....which is probably why it was empty on a Saturday night. Sorry, but we won't be coming back again. It felt like a waste of a Saturday night and a waste of money. Oh.....and the peshwari naan was like a sheet of cardboard.....dry and hard.More

I always like to try something different when on holidays and came across this little gem by accident. As soon as I walked in it took me back to India. The decor, hospitality and not to mention the food, it was all their. What we...had was amazing. I've read previous reviews and I honestly could not fault what we ate last night. We ordered the naan garlic bread, so so tasty, beef with capsicums & onions (sorry don't know what they call it), rice pilao and potato & cauliflower. These reminded me of what we ate in India (except for the beef). Please try it, you will not be disappointedMore

Couldn’t resist the wonderful smell of Indian food coming from across the road at Tandoori Palace. Unfortunately the butter chicken looked and tasted as far from any butter chicken taste that I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a lot). Not sure if they left some...ingredients out, but it was not palatable! Ended up in the bin. Naan bread was quite nice.More
