The Taj Tandoor, has for many years, been an Adelaide institution.
Conveniently located at 290 Rundle Street, in the heart of the city, and boasting prime, unobscured views of Rundle Street via large Victorian-style windows, the restaurant has long been a favourite of tourists and locals alike.
Set inside an heritage-listed Victorian building, the dining room welcomes you with handmade furniture and a keep-it-simple philosophy.
Tandoori charcoal cooking has always been the speciality of the house (including an awesome Goat Tandoori featured by SBS). The kitchen has perfected the same cooking techniques that have been passed down through generations to produce authentic and flavoursome Indian cuisine.
The restaurant boasts a an impressive cast iron wok, that weighs in excess of 50kg to cook its sauces over a slow flame. Fabulous.
Making use of South Australia’s fresh market vegetables, local sourced beef, lamb and prawns, Taj Tandoor’s simple philosophy is ‘Fresh healthy ingredients and lots of love’. Give it a try.
The latest information we have is that Taj Tandoor has closed its doors for the near future; another victim of the Covid lockdowns.
Two quality alternatives to consider instead are Bombay Bicycle Club in Ovingham (tel: 08 8269 4455) and British Raj in Torrensville (tel: 08 8354 4881) and you can read more about them in our 2022 guide to the Top Indian Restaurants in Adelaide. There is no need to go without your fix of Indian cuisine, even whilst Taj Tandoor is unfortunately closed.
