Ice Cream Shop

“New owners have stepped up the game at the Tandoor. In our opinion it has good from excellent to better than excellent. They have southern Indian dishes that we have never tried before and are amazing. Do not order too much as the portions are generous and pricing is moderate. Highly recommend.”
