Agra Tandoori Restaurant

We were planning to eat somewhere else for lunch but they were unexpectedly closed for a vacation. We decided to check out Agra Tandoori Restaurant, which is in a plaza that houses a few businesses and Argo Greek Cuisine Pizza & Pasta.

We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 12:30pm) and grabbed a booth in the back. The inside is simple, almost bare bones, but the service is kind and they came back several times to refill our waters.

Menu is standard but they offer four lunch specials ($10.00 to $13.95).

Untitled

They also ask how spicy you want your meal; we went with medium but I didn’t find there was much heat.

Masala chai ($3.25)
UntitledFlavours were mute and weak. Have yet to find a masala chai that we like.

Vegetable pakora ($10.95)
UntitledDeep-fried mixed vegetable fritters with a side of tamarind chutney. Not too greasy and decent texture. Serviceable.

2x Non-veg lunch special ($13.95)
UntitledWe opted for the goat curry (while J went with the butter chicken). The thali also came with a piece of tandoori chicken, garden salad, chickpeas, daal, rice, raita, naan and gulab jamun.

The goat curry was flavourful but consisted more of bones than meat.

Untitled

The tandoori chicken was an unexpected (but enjoyable) addition.

Untitled

Both the chickpea and daal were solid.

Untitled

Naan was a great portion.

Lastly, the gulab jamun was a delightful bite to end our meal.

Veggie lunch special ($12.95)
UntitledOnly difference is that the veggie thali came with paneer makhani.

The paneer was a bit bland when you ate it on it’s own but the slightly sweet, creamy sauce was good.

Nothing’s calling me to come running back to AT but it was a decent lunch.
