Very good food, I like the window into the kitchen. Probably a bit more expensive than other Indian food places but the quality is higher so it's worth it.

This has become our favourite restaurant. The authenticity of the recipes, the quality of the ingredients, the skill of the preparation are all top notch. The attentive and polite service always make our meal a pleasure. I should also mention that their delivery service is quick and their portions quite impressive.

Definitely one of the best Indian restaurants around. The food is incredibly flavorful and the service was outstanding and friendly. Great clear menu showing Gluten Free And Vegetarian options. They also have an amazing Wall of Spices showing benefits to each spice which again is incredible. Definitely going back to this restaurant. Thank you.

The food and service were excellent. The staff were very helpful to explain the menu. The kitchen was an open concept one so you can see how the chefs are properly making the dishes. The Covid protocols were implemented as per Provincial rules. The Owner ( Mr. N.Grover) was very humble in his Hospitality. Worth the trip...

Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious. I loved how they arranged the menu items by spiciness. It helped us to order the perfect spice level for each of us. The service was perfect too and the price was reasonable. We will definitely be going back!

Our dinner was delicious and the service was excellent also. One minor item was they were out of the wine that we chose from their wine list. It is a fabulous wine and we were delighted to see it on the list, only to be disappointed that they had none in stock. Otherwise, the dinner was excellent!

When my wife and I moved north to get away from the city our only fear was leaving fine international dining behind. Thankfully this has not been the case. We travel an hour to peterborough from Fenelon Fallls exclusively to dine at the imperial tandoor. This establishment exceeds our expectations every visit. It is not on par with Indoan restaurants in toronto it surpasses them.
Go there and see for yourself. Authentic south indian cuisine at its finest. Tim K

We always enjoy our time there. One little request my husband suggested, because does not drink, was to serve non alcoholic Beck's or Heineken in bottles. It being an above average restaurant, serving non alcoholic beer in a can is not as attractive as having it in a bottle.

The food was well spiced. Wonderful flavours. Great chicken curry Wth just the right amount of heat. The Lamb Sheek kabbab was a perfect accompaniment. The Saffron rce was cooked perfectly and the raita Cooled the palette. The coriander naan was delicious too. Our favourite restaurant of all time.

THe dining room lends a special ambiance. However, during Covid, we chose to eat on the patio.

I've been to the Tandoor several times and never had a bad meal. It's sets the new bar by which all other Peterborough, Ontario restaurants are to be judged ! The ethnicity of the cuisine is never compromised ! Those who attend this establishment must know in advance that ethnic quality is never compromised here!
