Excerpt my blog alexkwa.com
It was my third time being in Little India in all my life, so it was not that easy locating the restaurant as the Google maps for that area was slightly vague, but it didn’t take more than 15 minutes to do so. The restaurant wasn’t as crowded as I expected a “award-winning” restaurant to be. After settling down, we were immediately served Pappadums, with 2 bottles of mineral water already on the table (They costs $1.50 each btw -.-) . I should have noted the date on ieatishooipost’s 2007 article, as the prices seemed to have increased. Not letting the prices get me down, I ordered a Butter Chicken Curry ($17.50), Kashmiri Prawn Curry ($19.00) and a quarter Tandoori ($9.50) and assorted naans.
The Tandoori chicken was served first and a quarter was just nice for two persons. The chicken is slightly crispier on the outside and tender on the inside. It’s certainly very good, but I’m not used to just eating Tandoori without any sauces.
The Butter Chicken Curry came with the Garlic Naan I ordered, and I was a little taken aback my the portion. It was really little for $17.50. The texture and taste was really good though. Unlike some butter curry with overwhelming butter taste, the butter flavour was adequate, and the texture is towards the thick side.
The prawns was very good, very chewy and complemented the curry perfectly. And the cheese naan reigned supreme among the naans I ordered.
Tandoori Restaurant has great service and high quality of food. It’s unlikely that you would complain about the food there, but you will about the price. In my opinion, the food, while good, doesn’t warrant that kind of price tag. Perhaps I would recommend you to eat there no more than once, or only if you, for whatever reason, have an indian girlfriend you want to impress.
