Tanzore reflects the contemporary movement of Indian cuisine toward more modern taste and culinary sensibilities. Come with us and experience the evolution of Indian cuisine in a dramatic and colorful setting.
Our chefs at Tanzore have re-interpreted classic recipes by integrating familiar Indian herbs and spices with seasonal and fresh, organic, local California ingredients. We call our cuisine Indian Modern and we believe it captures the contemporary movement toward the tastes of the more modern plate. Perfectly complimenting our eclectic menu is the dazzling array or wines in our 2,000 bottle cellar. Every one of these world class wines has been carefully chosen to enhance your Tanzore dining experience.
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.
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.
Absolutely amazing restaurant! – I didn't think I was a huge fan of Indian food...but this place was amazing! My friend and I shared the ahi and avocado app as well as the scallop salad, the prawn tempura entree and chocolate cake dessert. All were absolutely phenomenal! The staff was very friendly and attentive and were more than happy to provide their recommendations on the best dishes. It has a cool atmosphere and beautifully designed interior. The music was great and there's a very comfortable and entertaining lounge area as there are sofa's and large tv screens, playing music videos and fashion shows. Of course, the cute and charming bartender was definitely an added bonus~
Restaurant Row's Bombay beat-infused restaurant has been given a makeover fit for the Maharajah. – In Short
A symbiotic melding of modern and traditional India, this restaurant/lounge (formerly the site of Gaylord) is like a Beverly Hills Taj Mahal. The white marble bar features comfy sofas where patrons can enjoy Bollywood's latest with a nonstop parade of videos. The bar menu includes small dishes like Tandoori quail and naan chips. The main dining room is more sleek; modern leather chairs are juxtaposed with traditional Indian art. The more extensive dinner menu features drunken scallops, velvet lamb kebab and vindaloos.
Amazing food and atmosphere – I went last week with my girlfriends that had read about it on Zagat and was pretty much blown away. I'm from London and grew up on Indian food, but this was unlike anything I've had. Our waiter (a quite fit one with fierce blue eyes and smile to melt, lol) told us that it was different from many Indian restaurants but still I was not prepared. He recommended an ahi and avocado appetizer that turned out to be the highlight of the night. We all shared and had lamb chops, Chicken curry and something else like a chicken masala. I don't remember the name of it now. There were a lot wines available and teh waiter made recommendations for all our food that were perfect. I won't be back in LA till december but when I do I'll definitley be going back. can't wait.
Unmatched Excellence: New Delhi Meets New York -- All In LA – Tanzore has MASTERED the art and science of fine Indian cuisine. It starts the minute you step in. The sights, sounds, and smells delight your senses. The lounge area featured massive video projectors (which on our night showcased Indian couture), and plush, comfortable sectional chairs. A joy to meet and greet here. As a fan of the fine spirits, the bar was also wonderfully stocked. I can't recall an instance when an Indian-based restaurant offered Chimay. After a couple of pre-dinner cocktails (and the best damn Calamari), we strolled into the dining area. I was, of course, unabashedly coveting the floor-to-ceiling, all-glass wine cellar during my little stroll. And it only got better from there. The dining area was infused with vibrant colors, impressive wood work, and a subtle, but ever so sublime, water feature. Finally, the food was, simply put, unmatched in its culinary excellence. It's what fusion was meant to be. The traditional flavors of ancieint and rich India bursting through 21st century, modern dishes. My dinner was the Masala lamb chops -- which were cooked "old school style" in a Tandoor (clay oven) -- and they were, no holds barred, [expletive] damn succulent and flavorful. And yes, if you're wondering, the wine list actually matched the beauty of the cellar. Dessert was a true treat -- a Cardamom-infused chocolate cake. It had the most amazing taste that just exploded in your mouth. On top of it all, the service was exceptional. The staff was both knowledgeable and personable. And, my water glass stayed full. Bottom line, if India = Taj Mahal, then the finest Indian cusine = Tanzore. Period.
Finally --- a quality Indian Restaurant in LA! – went to tanzore on my birthday and had an amazing meal. this is the kind of place you are more likely to find in london. very cool atmosphere, excellent food, great wait staff.
the chef is an artist taking the usual indian menu and elevating it by creating completely unique dishes. this is the place to eat if you are tired of the same old chicken tikka masala at your corner indian restaurant.
there's also a great lounge area playing bollywood movies. very hip.
Best Indian Food – After hearing so many positive things about Tanzore we had to go check it out. My girlfriend and I both entered the restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Words cannot express how wonderful great this restaurant looks from the inside. It was like a Trendy NY restaurant mixed with the Las Vegas Style and of course with the LA posh we all love.
We've eaten at hundreds of restaurant across the US and this place definitely ranks well. Especially for an Indian restaurant. Seating was prompt and the waitress did a wonderful job explaining the dishes. I highly recommend the basket of breads...perfect combo of naans. The lamb and chicken dishes tasted great. My girlfriend likes her food on the mild side.. it was perfectly seasoned for her. They did a good job with my spicy dishes as well.
Every dish was mouth watering and delicious. I'm planning to go back and take my parents and friends really soon. Ambience/Style points - off the charts, service - Excellent, Food- Great. The owners defiantly didn't forget about the little things that make a restaurant experience memorable. (The men's restrooms even had little TV screens) Finally a great Indian restaurant with delicious food and style.
Overpriced cliched indian food – This place is really overpriced. The staff is extremely unfriendly. We made a reservation, but of course they could not find it. We then had to wait 30 mins until they found us a seat. This was very unusual since the restaurant was not very crowed. The food iteself-not so great. Overly spiced, greasy dishes. Small portions. We went away not wanting any more.
Stylish Indian Food – So I went to Tanzore for the first time last night with my parents. We had a wonderful time. Our waitress was amazing, the food was incredible, and the environment was unbelievable. Everything was just great. We ordered the crabcakes, tiger prawn tandoori, wild mushroom and spinach curry, black cod, bhindi masala, chutney trio, garlic naan, eggplant curry and raita. And the delicious yogurt pannacotta for dessert. Everything was tip top, but I have to mention that the wild mushroom and spinach curry with basil naan was my absolute favorite! This is such an awesome place to go to celebrate a special occasion. The restaurant is very trendy and stylish. I just love everything about it. Our whole night went so smoothly and wonderfully. I definitely will be back soon.
Not your traditional Indian restaurant, even better! – Classy, clean, elegant, mellow, romantic and most of all, DEEEELICIOUS! My friend Birkleigh had her 24th b-day party there last night and we were treated like royalty by every single person in that place! From the mixologist at the bar who made our cocktails special to order to the chef, Mikail, coming to our table twice to check on us and to see how we liked the food, this place is the end all, be all, in fashionable, high-end dining in Los Angeles. They have a loaded wine cellar, (actually a temperature controlled wine closet encased in glass for all to see, tucked neatly beside the dining room) with wines to go with every dish and then some, that they have on their menu. In the lounge area, I could not take my eyes off the TV screens displaying Bollywood dance scenes from movies and fashion shows direct from India with fashions that I would love to have!
The delicacies this gorgeous place has to offer are not your traditional findings on a simple Indian food menu. They are artisanal entrees served with love and care. Bombay-L.A. Melange on the apps. side was the creme de la creme for sampling a little bit of everything and the tamarind chutney was simply to die for!
We were given extra entrees to sample, the chicken specialties are so mouthwatering, you want to dance and sing about it! Tandoori chicken is done so elegantly and the velvet lamb melts in your mouth!
Hot and steaming garlic naan is the way to sample the delectable Wild mushroom and Spinach Curry, that was my fave entree. And for desert, oh, the cake that they brought for my friend! Gorgeous! And we sampled the plum tart, killer delicious, and the best thing I've ever tasted in my life (being a chocoholic) CARDAMOM CHOCOLATE CAKE! I almost peed my pants! I absolutely LOVE this place and will be returning again and again for celebrations, dates, with guests from out of town who want a fine-dining experience and for this cake!!! ohmigod...I'm still dreaming about its yumminess on my tongue.
