The staff was very helpful and sweet! Food was flavorful and fantastic! So many options to choose from and the portions are great for their price. Would absolutely return! The tikka sauce never, never disappoints. For all things grilled Indian- this is the place to start ✨

Food was really quite good
Mistakenly chose to eat outside, this area is down the street and had I realized we were going to get takeout brought to us, I would have opted to eat inside.
So everything was packaged in paper, kind of messy and certainly very slow.
The wait staff was very nice, just overworked and since I'm sure his setup was in response to Covid I will give it a pass.
Will definitely go back again, next time inside

One of our favorite Pakistani/Indian restaurant in the city. Have been there several times now. Everything we have tried so far is super delicious and of great quality. Also service and ambiance is great. Even it's small, it feels very classy.

We ate out at the “outdoor patio” area on Schubert outside of Sapori. The food was excellent and the server our quite funny and extremely personable.
We enjoyed the Aloo Masala appetizer, the tamarind chutney, and the lamb saag. The beef samosas are a game changer. Order those with the tikka masala sauce. You’ll thank me later.
Definitely looking forward to ordering or visiting them in person again soon!

Good was amazingly good!
They cook the food at the restaurant which is a block down the street and the food is served in takeout containers to keep it warm and easy for them to carry. The food took quite awhile.
But if you’re patient and live authentic Indian/Pakistani food then this is a great choice!!!!

As a long time Tandoor fan I was excited that they were able to set up outdoor seating on weekends. I booked a reso online. The outdoor seating is just north across the street. The staff is so friendly and nice. I can truly say every experience I’ve ever had here has been warm and absolutely delightful in every way. Highly recommend making a patio reso during these strange Covid times. I also deeply commend tandoor for not offering indoor seating. Safety first because they care. I love it. And I love this spot.

I have never had a bad meal at Tandoor Char House and neither have my friends. The food is always good, authentic and can be adjusted to your spice/heat level. We try to order new dishes each time we go there. The owners are so friendly and helpful. You have to try Grandma's hot and spicy chutney, it is so good!

Only one way to describe this place...outstanding. Best Indian and fusion Indian food we have ever had. The actual restaurant environment is not fancy (pretty basic, but no issue). However, the food and service were truly terrific. One important note that we did not know...this is a BYOB place. Highly recommended. 5 stars all around.

Tandoor Char House is our favorite Indian/Pakistani restaurant in Chicago. The food is always great, and the staff are very friendly and attentive. I also love that it's BYOB. We've introduced several friends to this place, and they've all been impressed.

Some of my favorite dishes are: beef samosas, beef nihari, lamb karahi and gulab jamun.

I'd definitely recommend making reservations on weekends.
