A word from Tanzore
Recently named one of Los Angeles Magazines BEST 75 Restaurants! Sleek. Modern. Sexy. This is Tanzore, the spectacular Modern Indian Restaurant located on La Cienega’s famed Restaurant Row. With an impressive menu that plays upon the blending of California’s seasonal, farmers’ market-driven ingredients, with traditional Indian flavors creating a modern sensibility. Tanzore offers contemporary twists on classic recipes. Its 2000-bottle wine cellar and the primary dining area are marked by the ripples of an “Egyptian Tub” that floats through the middle of the room. The ambience is at once chic and elegant with subtle reflections of Indian culture. The bar and lounge space are trimmed in a luxurious hand selected white marble from India, set against a giant wall of video featuring fashion, travelogs, and of course, the latest Bollywood extravaganzas. Tanzore also offers the Haveli Room, as its private dining space. Special Event Private Rooms for 25 - 350 guests.

Tanzore reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Good meal...if you have the time
    AndyVIP
    Dined on 11/3/2013
    The food was good. Having underestimated Indian food spice levels in the past, we choose to go with Medium. Probably should've chosen Mild, as it was still a bit hot and our drinks were empty. This is the reason for the 2 Stars for Service. There was one server working the entire restaurant and she was overwhelmed with 10 tables at the same time. Others were trying to help out, but our dining experience took around two and a half hours (app, entree, and dessert) and much of that time was spent with empty glasses (my biggest pet peeve when dining out).

    It's not attentive or friendly. It's so quiet you have to whisper. No vibe whatsoever. Food was ok it's such a beautiful space it's a shame that mamagement can't get their act together. Over priced. No valet.

    We're return diners to Tanzore and mostly with guests. The menu is enticing as is the decor, so we always look good. The restaurant often has large events in the Gaylord room with our night being no exception. In spite of this, the chef still kept up in quality and timing the dishes out - not an easy feat!

    Everyone knows how important selecting a casual brunch location can be when you are meeting with people who made a great effort to come to your side of town, in particular when you know one person really well and have not a clue about their spouse. The decor immediately puts you at ease, at the same time you feel a bit special to be dining there. I've never had a chance to enjoy the Sunday brunch before, but was comfortable enough from previous dining experiences there to know their Chef could only please our palettes. Brunch did not disappoint one bit. The buffet was varied enough that our vegetarian guests had a large selection, while others enjoyed the excellent Tandoori Chicken as well as the lamb. We loved the attentive service too.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 7/31/2013
    Restaurant was nothing to write home about. Luckily we came here when they had a promotion for half off entire dinner menu. The food service was very slow though we were one of 3 tables in the entire restaurant. I feel the food is way overpriced. I ordered saag paneer and baby eggplant and the portion size was the size of a side order, but the price was was about 13 to 18 dollars each. And they charge $5 for a small bowl of jasmine rice. I definitely don't mind paying for $100 per person meals, but this place is not worth it. They don't offer anything special than what you could find at a cheap local spot (though they do offer many meat friendly entees). I would possibly return for brunch because it's a decently priced buffet.

    Went there on a Thursday night with two friends (one Indian). Had the Maharaja appetizer which was not enough for the three of us to share;. I had sea bass which had a truly tasty sauce but I could tell that the fish was defrosted. My Indian friend asked for a dish that was a mix of curry rice and lamb cubes... called Birya I think. He really did not like it. He had a serving and then left the rest. My other friend had lamb chops which he said were too dry.. The service was ok. our water glasses were empty most of the meal and had to ask the waitress to refill them. If it were not so expensive I probably would go back and asked for a fish dish some day in the future.

    If you have the time to get some properly cooked Indian food, you should definitely go here. It takes some time to get the food, however it is totally worth it. Amazing curries. We tried both Methi Garlic Fish and Indian Spicy Kashmiri Lamb Curry and they are a heavenly experience. Goes well with their excellent Garlic Naan bread.

    Tanzore's cuisine is worthy of it's home on the city's Restaurant Row. The interior is simple, elegant and heady all at the same time. Truly a dining experience of the senses. The venue's website states "Tanzore wants you to evoke your senses, savor the spices and enjoy the journey of India Modern Cuisine." This is not the words of an internet braggart. We enjoyed every moment of being there, including our early arrival prior to opening, which could have been very awkward. Instead we were made to feel at home and taken care of through out the evening. Personally, I was grateful for a menu design which clearly showed vegetarian and non-vegetarian selections. I was able to relax and not feel as if I had to guide my family.

    ...restaurant in LA. It is right up there with East India Grill in Portland, OR and reminds me of home. Great drinks and food pairings. The only thing that would make this place better is where to go after if you are on a date. Not the most walkable place. Watch out, if you want it spicy you have to tell them. They will make it mild by default.

    We really enjoyed our visit to Tanzore although we had a Groupon and we felt it was still expensive. The food and service was good but I am not sure that the food was that different from other Indian restaurants to merit the high price (although I guess it is Beverly Hills). Their wine list was good and, although we both had house wines, it was good quality wine, not plonk, and we enjoyed it.

    The food and ambiance were fine, but we had the worst service I've ever had in a "fine dining" restaurant. We were seated at a table set for four, but the extra place settings were never removed. The waitress disappeared for long periods of time, and when she drifted by, she never made eye contact to see if we needed anything - and we did. She came back and apologized for her tardiness, then disappeared again! Finally, she disappeared for so long after we finished eating our entrees – whose plates were never cleared – that I had to find a bartender and request a desert menu. Then she calculated our bill incorrectly. A very disappointing first visit to a restaurant whose many awards left us expecting better.

    The restaurant was GORGEOUS and the food delicious. We arrived early so naturally the place was quiet. No one else showed up until we were already an hour into our meal. I do feel that it was just a tad smidge teensie bit overpriced for the size of portions you receive. However the staff was involved and more than polite. They have a lounge area on the opposite side of the dinning room which looks like its a jam during happy hurs and weekends. One thing to keep in mind is that it seems as though they only do valet parking on weekends when they're more busy (we went on a Monday just as they opened for dinner) so when you do the self-parking option in the building's underground lot, YOU MUST HAVE CASH. It's $4.50 flat. Not too bad.

    Overall the food is good. Service is a bit slow. If you order desert, stick to a warm dish. The other dishes seem to be frozen until ready to serve, so the mousse or pear are too cold or nearly frozen. Go with dinner but skip desert unless you have it during lunch (when the pastry chef is presumably still there and has not put the deserts on ice for the dinner shift).

    The drinks were really good - possibly the best cocktails I have ever had! The chicken dishes were perfectly tender and delicious. The salad (sort of like a chopped Greek salad) and rice were excellent, the naan left something to be desired. The ambiance is lovely, the restaurant is smaller than I had imagined though. The 2 person booths are very cozy. I think the service is probably usually good but we had an odd waiter who was not friendly and at times not quite courteous either.
