Tandoor Chop House 8

I rarely go to Indian restauarnts at lunch time because (with my appetitie) it’s easy to eat far too much and then feel lethargic all afternoon. But when I was invited to go to Tandoor Chop House by friends, I didn’t put up much resistance.

Basically the lunchtime menu is kept very simple; you’re steered towards ordering their Tandoor Lunch Thali. This features standard accompaniments like Naan, Dhal and Halwa to which you add one main dish. I chose the Black petter Chicken, while other less meat-orientated companions went for ther Lasooni Paneer.

The food was very good, and the portion was well-judged. We did add a few of their “snacks” to enhance the meal. These included a Seekh Kebab Roll and Spicy Chickpeas. Our appetites didn’t stretch to desserts, but I’d be very tempted on a future visit.

The place was full and bustling, but not in such a way that you couldn’t hear what was being said. And the service was very efficient.

Tandoor Chop House knows exactly what it is doing, and it does it very well.
