There are many Indian eateries and restaurants in Singapore and we are more familiar with South Indian cuisine. But Tandoori Corner is serves North Indian cuisine which may be less prevalent. My colleague and I stumbled upon this restaurant while we went to collect stuffs from that area during lunch time (Date visited: 15/7/2013). So,we decided to give it a try.
The interior restaurant was quite cosy, simple and elegant for an Indian restaurant. The space is quite limited and I think cannot hold more than 30-40 people. We are able to get our seats immediately during lunch time.
Lunch menu was presented to us by the service staff. They served various choices for lunch menu at the price not more than S$15.00. Since it is 2 of us, we choose two different lunch set to share.
Non-Vegetarian set meal with the choice of Mutton Set Meal @S$9.50.The meal comes with mutton, vegetables,dhal,rice and naan. The rice taste like nasi briyani and the texture is slightly hard compare to the rice texture that we Chinese have normally. I love the mutton that comes with the rich gravy. The mutton texture was soft and tender. The gravy overflowing onto the rice and naan gives the overall taste yummy.
Tandoori Chicken Tikka @S$10.90.The boneless marinated chicken chunks grilled to perfection in the tandoor served with mint chutney. Tandoori chicken is a popular Indian dish consisting of roasted chicken prepared with yogurt and spices. The name comes from the type of cylindrical clay oven, a tandoor, in which the dish is traditionally prepared. The marinated chicken chunks taste a bit dry for me after a few bites. But the grilled and the colour of the marinated chicken does gives a good impression to enjoy the dish.
The staffs are very prompt to our request. They will re-fill our drinks promptly. Serving time was less than 20 minutes which is up to the serving standard. Total lunch costs S$22.44 which includes 10% service charge and no GST charges. We were greeted with smile when we walked into the restaurant and ‘thank you for visiting’ when we left. This make us feel that they do value their customers who patron the restaurant. No wonder we saw the recommended TripAdvisor sticker at the front entrance of the restaurant.

We (my group of friends and I) were running around Boon Tat Street looking for food to eat at 10pm-ish and it was really impossible to find a decent restaurant to eat at that hour - until we stumbled (sorry!) upon Tandoori Corner. It had a very nice ambience and the place was decorated really nicely, however, this paled in comparison to the service that we received from the staff who were on duty on the last day of the year (2012).
They were supposed to close slightly earlier since it was the end of the year and it was REALLY close to 12 midnight and they had planned to join their friends for a new year countdown. However, despite having to accomodate a group of 9 (who had no idea about North Indian cuisine), they put on their biggest and earnest smile even though they had to explain repeatedly what we were ordering to us (sorry!).
The food was really unexpectedly FANTASTIC. Naturally, one would imagine the food quality to suffer since it was a last order (which would usually be rushed), but it was NONE of that! It was pleasing to the tastebuds and did not feel too spicy (I believe it was the waiter's selection for us that made this happen) and we just wanted to have MORE!
After our meal it was time for us to leave. We had planned on having a birthday celebration in the restaurant that we went to but it was really too time consuming and it would not be swell for the staff to wait for us, so we decided to ask them for some serviettes so we could put cake on it. However, they went the extra mile(s) and gave us plastic plates and a bunch of cutlery upon knowing that it was for a birthday cake. It was extremely awesome for them to do that for us and we really appreciated it.
So thanks for making the last meal of 2012 such a memorable one! From your last customers of 2012, we sincerely (and from the bottom of our hearts) thank you for your hospitality! We hope for thriving business for you folks for the years to come!
At this predominantly Chinese, Korean and local food area, a new North Indian Colourful restaurant made its debut few months ago. I have been working in this area from last couple of years. A lot of food choices are available here but if I want to eat good North Indian food (not the hawker quality) I have to travel far.
But with the opening of Tandoori Corner at the Boon Tat street I am enjoying great Luncheon with colleagues. And I can also entertain my clients in the evening for sumptuous dinner.
My favourites are, garlic Nan, Butter chicken, lamb chop and addictive onion Bhaji. I mean once you start you can not stop….
Try my new discovery…
