Chefs of Tandoori

This smart restaurant, which occupies two floors, is highly recommended by people in the know, and it’s easy to see why. For starters we enjoyed the vegetable samosas, fat and full of potatoes, green peas and a good spice mix. Our main meals included the Peshawi Aloo, in which the potatoes come with onion, tomatoes and a what is clearly a generous helping of spices, and Egg Plant; on the day we were there it was beautifully soft and red…there is always something immensely satisfying about fried aubergine, and┬áthe cooks here handle it superbly.┬áSometimes it seems a good idea to eat something fresh to balance the flavours of an Indian meal, and we went for the Katchumber Salad of tomatoes, onions, cucumber and capsicum, which turned out to be oddly sweet, apparently a consequence of its being flavoured with both vinegar and lemon. While this restaurant may look like a standard suburban Indian dive, in reality it serves very fine food indeed.
