Best Indian food in Des Moines..
I've been to the other 2 Indian restaurants in Des Moines (India Star and Taste Of India), and this is the best one. I'm an Indian myself, so I do know a thing or two about good Indian food. This restaurant has the best interior design and the best food. Taste Of India is good, but they are not consistent. India Star is absolutely horrible and their service is rude, but Tandoor is top-notch. They make their dishes slightly differently than tradition, but it is still authentic and the taste (which should be the most important thing) is great.
On the downside, they are more expensive and they have a serious lack of vegetarian dishes, but I would still choose this place over the other two places. The staff was also extremely friendly and I love the ambiance in this place.
Best Indian Food I've Ever Had!.
My Des Moines-based sister took me to Tandoor. As a Southern California resident, I can be a food snob, but I must say, this restaurant blew me away! From the warm hummus appetizer to the mango custard dessert, we were thrilled and delighted! Everything from the service to the ambience were incredible! The menu was appropriate for everyone, from the spicy-hot lovers to the timid. Just a lovely experience.
