Tandoori Oven

N was craving Indian food so I picked a few spots that looked good and let her choose from there. She opted for Tandoori Oven which is across the street from Persia Foods. They specialize in Pakistan and Indian food.


Sign outside. Can you believe all their dishes were under $10.00 previously?


Will have to try their thali options next time.




We dropped in on a Monday evening (around 7:15pm) and the place was dead. For good reason because the inside was stifling. No fan or anything inside which made it almost unbearable. We decided to get takeout. Oddly, the lady didn’t bother to give us any utensils or napkins but luckily, I checked before we left.


The menu consists of appetizer, vegetarian, lamb, goat, chicken, beef, kabab & tandoori, biryani, seafood, burgers & wraps, bread and desserts. Entrees are all in the $8.99 to $14.99 range. We weren’t asked about heat level so none of our dishes were spicy.

2x Plain naan ($1.75 each)
DSC04398Two slices per order. Fluffy and fresh but fairly standard.

Lamb biryani ($12.99)
DSC04401Lamb was cooked on the bone and came out tender. Tasty and rice was aromatic.

Chicken tikka masala ($11.49)
DSC04400Sauce was on the sweeter side. Not many pieces of chicken.

Palak paneer ($8.99)
DSC04402Fresh spinach with cubes of cottage cheese and spices. This was my favourite dish of the night. Spinach excellently cooked and paneer was enjoyable. Would get this one again.


Don’t bother staying in. Take out is the way to go (and this coming from someone who never gets takeout).
