Over the course of history, many Europeans came to India in search of spices, so great was their love for Indian cuisine. Indians now travel all over the world with the same delicious spices, creating delicious curries for all. Here in Tel Aviv, you can find the same genuine taste of India at a few select restaurants, mostly concentrated in the southern neighborhoods of the city. We bring you our top selection.

The meaning of the word tandoori is ‘food cooked in a tandoor,’ the traditional Indian oven that makes the food so delicious. The restaurant Tandoori is located near Dizengoff Square in central Tel Aviv. In addition to Tandoor’s special dishes, vegetarian options are on offer such as the paneer dishes. Tandoori also has many vegan dishes available.
