A favorite of the local Indian community, Tandoor is a destination for embassy officials who want a food fix from home. It's no surprise that it's also a winner with American expats, many of whom are looking for something a little spicier than the local fare. When the place first opened the chef went full tilt on the picante, but he eventually toned down the spices a bit to appeal to a local clientele. You can always add in more chilies, available on request. The
room is chic and sleek, and the service is polished. At lunch there's an inexpensive prix-fixe menu option.
