Superb Indian!. I went in sort of unsure since this was Gaylord for many years and the food there was very average. As the meal unfolded, I came to realize this place was very special. The chef clearly knows what he is doing. Now, it's not traditional Indian at all. Some of the spices have been paired down for American palates, but they've accomplished this without sacrificing flavor. It's also not served family-style. I would highly recommend the lamb kebobs, the seabass, the crab cakes, the raita appetizer, the bread basket too for variety. Desserts utilize Indian spices as well, and they were good but the real deal was the apps and entrees. Someone also put a lot of thought into the wine list. It's not your typical Mondavi. There are actually wines on there that pair with the food. Full bar too, with interesting cocktails and Charbay vodka. The lounge features Indian fashion shows, Bollywood films and ... sports sometimes.
bad service. my friends and i were looking to this birthday dinner the whole week but soon after we were seated it was apparent we would be dissapointed. we ordered our cocktails as soon as we were seated but it took nearly 25 minutes for them to arrive-well after the appetizers were served!! we decided to order for the table and share different food so we ordered 2 each of the lamb, prawns, sea bass and chicken tikka masala. we were told food is genereally mild unless ordered spicy-we ordered 1 of the fish spicy (at no time did our waiter advise againt that). big mistake! both bass dishes were so spicy all you could taste was bitterness. so we complained to the waiter and asked for a milder order. very soon a frowning managered appeared at our table acting like an inquistor--pointing his finger and demanding "but did you order it spicy?" time and time again refusing to accomodate us. needless to say this put a damper on our mood and we didnt stay for tea or desserts. although the food was otherwise ok, it was highly overpriced and the servie and managment were so terrible that i would never go back.
Overpriced for Mediocre, Tiny-Sized Indian Food.. I admit that before entering this place, it already had a strike against it. We originally had reservations at 7:30 for 4 people, but when we wanted to add one person, they said we had to move our reservations to 8:30. Ultimately we settled on our original reservations ? but when we arrived for dinner, there was only one other party in the entire restaurant. Actually, throughout our entire dinner (2 hours), there were 2 to 4 other tables dining at the most. It was very frustrating that they couldn?t be more accommodating, especially when they were clearly being deceptive about how ?busy? they were. To be fair, the interior and the service were lovely. In fact, our server even offered to take my valet ticket out to get my car because it was cold, which was really going beyond the call of duty. Unfortunately, those were the only really good things about the place. The food was simply disappointing. Moreover, the servings were tiny. Even in LA we don't want elf-sized food. Anyways, we had the following: 1. goan crab tikki - crab cakes with crab chutney and mustard seeds. This was ok, but the batter overwhelmed the crab a bit. 2. trio of chicken tikka - each piece was marinated in a different flavor. one was marinated in green herbs, another in some pink peppercorn and a third in asparagus. The chicken was a bit dry ?3. garlic naan - this was warm and actually quite good; but each serving had only 2 pieces. I think they noticed our disappointment because they quickly added 2 more pieces to our basket. 4. tandoori chicken - nothing spectacular. 5. masala chicken curry ? this was the one I ordered and was quite yummy (but I do love my curry!) 6. saag paneer (spinach with cheese) ? this was a bit bland, and I?ve had better in divey places. 7. chicken tikka mahkani ? this was ok. 7. trio of indian desserts - none of which were good or barely edible. I wish I had liked this place better and I'm shocked at the great reviews. Did I just go on an off night?
unlike any other Indian restaurant in LA. great, modern take on Indian fare in a cool, hip atmosphere. food was perfectly spiced. will definitely be back.
Worst Service Yet in LA, food just OK. I had a friend come up from San Diego and she's a huge foodie, so I was very excited to take her to Tanzore, which had won awards for the design and whose food came highly recommended. We arrived to find they had lost our reservation, and Joe, the maitre-D (I suppose?) was extremely rude about it, saying there was nothing available and offered no apology, nothing. Finally, after the only male in the group went up to complain for the third time about how poor their hospitality was, we were finally "squeezed in" and sat down by the snooty maitre-D, still no apology for their mistake of loosing our reservation. Finally, the food came and was simply OK. The tandori chicken was dry, the scallops fishy. The only decent dish was the lamb briyani, which was made in traditional Indian style, we might as well have gone to a traditional Indian restaurant for a third of the price. I do not recommend this place at all.
$100 on Lunch? Not worth it...... We chose to dine during lunch hour thinking that there would be specials offered.. the prices were high and the portions were... a joke. I left the establishment hungry (I ordered appatizer, lunch and dessert) and it cost me (two of us) $100 on a lunch. Not worth it.
Excellent cuisine. The establishment was beautiful, the service was excellent, the food was exquisite. I was very enamored by this Indian restaurant. Top notch quality all around. I will definitely be coming back here in the future.
Dont say HOT because you will cry.
Great service nice and Romantic Place.Beautiful Bar .
fabulous food and very personalized service. i brought my birthday party to Tanzore and i felt like a bday princess! the food is terrific, the cocktails are a treat and the entire team took great care of us.
Interesting but way overpriced.. The food is interesting, but just ok. Crab cakes were gummy. Lentil and romaine salad was delicious. Tandoori chicken was good, but there were two tiny pieces. The black cod was good. The decor is pretty fabulous. Overall, $120 without tip for an average meal in a place with cool decor. Oh, and our server belonged in a sports bar rather than a fine restaurant.
Not worth the hype.... The decor of this place is beautiful. The color schemes and the modern design are a really nice touch to the place especially remembering how it was when it was as Gaylord's. However, the food is really not that great. The naan basket is interesting. The food choices are limited for vegetarians. The appetizer portions are miserly, at best and the food is really overpriced. The wait staff were really friendly and made great suggestions for wine. However, the "hostesses" were a bit on the rude side and not super friendly - they appeared bored. Despite all of this, this restaurant should really play around more with more traditional flavors in their fusion menu. I'll go back one more time but, really wouldn't consider recommending this place for anyone really trying to experience interesting, good food.
