Yesterday was dinner's at The Tandoori House. A local Penang restaurant along Hutton Lane in Georgetown. This place has been here for a very long time, probably since my childhood days. It is a cosy, quiet place, lots of beautiful Indian arts and decor. Friendly waiters and good service. A place I love going when I want to enjoy real Indian food. This is my second time here and I would definitely come back.
My first order was the Sweet Lassi. Despite its name "Sweet", the sweet lassi served here is just moderately sweet, just the way I like it. Then we ordered two dish of vege, one chicken, bread and rice dish.
Aloo Mattar (Potato & Green Peas curry)
Vege Manchurian (Vege balls cooked in a special sauce)
Peshawari Chicken (special marinated chicken strips in curry)
Batura (fried, crispy bread)
Naurattan Rice (flavoured rice with cherries, raisins, pineapple, etc)
A bowl of pappadums is also served, along with a selection of chopped vege(onions, carrots), home-made red chili sauce, and my favourite mint sauce.
Our previous menu:
Malai Kofta (stuffed vege balls in curry)
Tandoori Murghi (chicken tandoori)
I should say the naan is the best basic dish to have any time - it can be shared by two, it goes well with any curry or dry dish and best of all is the softness in the way it is cooked. Yummy! The curries I should say has a moderate spiciness in it. I like really spicy food, and this would be more of the curry dishes - Chicken Masala and Peshawari Chicken. I'd also have the Aloo Mattar any time because it fills your tummy up nicely with its blend of potatoes and green peas.
As good as the food looks in the picture, the taste is even better. Foods are moderately priced and it is worth it! In conjuction with the holy month of Ramadhan, the restaurant also offers a Ramadhan Set Lunch or Dinner with a choice of entree, main and dessert, and drinks.
On the scale of 1-5, with 1 being the best, I'd rate The Tandoori House at 2!
