Great Indian Food without having to travel to London!!!! – As far as we are concerned Santoor is one of the best Indian restaurants in the South. My wife is from England and we always compare the Indian restaurants that we eat at in the US to the great ones that we have eaten at in London and the rest of England and Santoor ranks with the best of them. The offerings are simple and to the point but that is how we prefer it because we know it is always consistent and good. Plus, their prices are very reasonable for the quality of food that is offered. If we take friends out that have never had Indian we always take them to Santoor because we know we can depend on a quality meal. One of our favorite meal is to order a dish of Chicken korma (sweet) and a dish of Chicken Madras (hot) or Vindaloo (incredibly hot) and then combine the two. The Sag Aloo is a great side dish with potatoes and spinach. Don't miss the Shrimp Puree for an appetizer. It is wonderful. We prefer the cream version but the tomato version is also nice. When you go to Santoor you have to be patient. It is a mom and pop restaurant and sometimes mom and pop can get pretty busy but the food always arrives hot and delicious - well worth the wait.
Great food & service – Warm & friendly service with delicious food = A #1 in my book! The food is cooked to order or weekly lunch buffet, with a great & varied menu. Pretty decor & never had to wait for a seat.
Good Indian Food – We have eaten many times at this restaurant (and the one these owners used to have on Roswell Road). The food here is very consistent and dependable. The owner is very pleasant and strives to make sure you have a good experience.
Delicious – I've lived in Atlanta for many years, and I've eaten at various Indian restaurants. Sitar of Tandoori on Peachtree and Maharajah on LaVista used to both be faves before they closed. However, Santoor is surely a great way to cope with those losses: I tried it for the first time last night, and was very pleased. We had Vegetable Chaat as an appetizer; my husband had Chicken Tikka Masala for his entree, while I ordered Lamb Korma, and both were so good that we wanted to keep eating them after we were full. Our heads turned at the wonderful smell emanating from another diner's Tandoori mixed grill of lamb, chicken, and I -think- shrimp.
We chatted for a few moments after our meal with one of the owners, and it seems they vary their lunch buffet daily to keep things fresh and interesting. She said they have Chicken Makhani sometimes on the weekend buffets, which is certainly a draw for me as that's one of my favorite Indian dishes. We will definitely be returning to Santoor for more savory, flavorful Indian cuisine.
Best Indian in Georgia! – I drive across town to dine here. The reason that the service is a little slow is because they don't PRE MAKE THEIR FOOD!
Decent Indian Food – I've eaten at this place a bunch of times now and I must say it's as good as some of the best indian food I've ever had...I've lived in Boston, NY, and Los Angeles...There's another place up on Winward that's pretty good too...Andy's I think? But this place has some super nice people working there but they are slow as molasses...I do take out and give them awhile...They should deliver...
Extremely Disappointed – The service was terrible. The waiter served everyone pompadoms except me. $2.00 was added to my entree for no apparent reason and the Chicken Tikka Masala tasted like old buffet chicken tikka doused in Kraft BBQ sauce.
Not That Good – i have been there once and the food is not that good...... we have to wait for a lot of time to get them to get our attention
Editorial Review – Spice lovers come to this top-tier Indian eatery for traditional favorites such as biryani, chicken tikka masala and tandoori chicken.
Awesome!! – Being a Brit living in th US, I have missed real Indian food so badly. There are more Indian Restaurants in the UK than any other. Until I found the Santoor, I had been so disappointed with the food served up in ATL Indian restaurants.
The Pakoora is simply the best and I also go for 'British' hot Vindaloo. Wow!!!!
This place deseves to be Number 1 on everyone's hitlist of must do restaurants.
