What is Tandoori?Tandoori

Several of our most popular main courses are classified as Tandoori. The word tandoori comes from the word tandoor, derived from the Eastern Persian word Tannur. A Tandoor is a traditional open hearth charcoal fired clay oven that is used to bake flatbreads like “naan” and grill or roast beef, lamb, chicken, and seafood. In a Tandoori dish, the meat is marinated in a blend of herbs, spices, and yogurt, and slowly cooked in a tandoor to seal in the natural succulent flavors while removing excess fat, resulting in a healthy and flavor-packed dining experience.
