My first restraunt review-Tandoor

I have been going to this place called "Tandoor" ever since i was a little kid .Tandoor as the name suggests is bangalore's answer to authentic punjabi tandoori cuisine. Being a punjabi who ha slived her life between bangalore and delhi as a child and a major part of the teenage years in bangalore, i can quite comfortably say that yes tandoor is a must visit if you love tandoori and mughlai food.unfortunately, my camera is outta charge so i will upload the pics later. The warm lighting, the see thru kitchen,the lovely inlay inspired enamels on the roof, the coper glasses all remind one of a bygone era of havelis in punjab. even the ghazal sufi music is quite pleasant to the ears. I've grown up eating non -vegetarian food altough since ive turned 20 ive eaten only seafood and vegetarian so i can quite comfortably say that the kababs and tikkas here are amongst the very best you can get in bangalore. The best being the royal afghan at the windsor manor.Their Fish Tikka , kadhain prawns, paneer lababdar is exceptinally good. The fish is quite mildly spiced and tender when compared to fish tikka ive eaten elsewhere in bangalore. I have a strong feeling that the same lababdar gravy is used for chicken and fried cubes of cottage chesse is dunked into this upon order. The kadhai prawns are also good. The Garlic Butter Naan of course has been my favourite ever since i was a kid a sper my parents i could ignore the rest of teh food and eat two garlic naans with the vinegerette onions alone. Hmm weird i suppose but when you are a four year old who has a maida high i suppose your parents can't do much?Their Murgh Badami and Malai Tikka and Peshawari kabab have been other cnstant favourites apart from the Dal Makhni and Pudina Parantha.For the desserts they have the typical kulfi,kheer, gajar ka halwa(where i feel my mum's turns out much better). The malai kulfi is the best tough. Beverages include a yummy fruit punch which, lassi, and a whole of of nouveau inspired coolersalong with alcoholic drinks and cocktails. A meal for two at tandoor would cost approx rs 1,500 with starters, 3 dishes of maincourse one being prawns and another fish,2 naans and 2 parantha's a fruit punch and 3 desserts thrown in (i cant live with out eating less than two kulfi's here).Believe me its worth every penny tough and i just cant help butgo there really often.Beware the place is uite popular amongst the expats and the northindian community in bangalore and is always packed but now that they have two places-one in oasis and the original on M.g road and a newer branch at the oasis mall in koramangala. Reservations are a must.
But its worth every
