About Us

Our Journey

Our colourful past began back in 1984, when a determined young man from Penang, Abdul Malik Abdullah, discovered his passion while working hard for others in several restaurants in and around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. His tenacity, coupled with support from his wife, Mumtaz Begum Mohd Sidek, would later lead him to be the Founder and Managing Director of D’Tandoor Group of Companies.


After a long and fruitful rite of passage into the F&B world, Abdul Malik went to Sydney, Australia in 1990, in search of better opportunities and fresh ideas. After completing a Diploma Course in Business Management, he returned to Malaysia in 1993 and opened the very first D’Tandoor Restaurant in Damansara Utama with friend and co-founder, Tan Hun Kim.


Since then, D’Tandoor has become a household name in Malaysia with seven outlets of our own and another seven franchised outlets. Today, after a long and challenging journey, we are proud to say that D’Tandoor is Malaysia’s first and biggest North Indian food franchisor.

Our Mission

We believe in giving our customers a place to celebrate life’s special moments by offering delicious food, impeccable service, and welcoming ambiance for all our customers.
