Just off the 15 freeway on Activity Road in Mira Mesa, Punjabi Tandoor offers a taste of India at a great value. It’s hidden away in an industrial area of office suites, so there is plenty of available parking at any time of day. Chicken, lamb and vegetable curries are their hallmark, as well as their use of a traditional Indian tandoor. The most popular of their curry dishes is the Chicken Tikka Masala, a boneless piece of chicken breast, cooked in a clay oven and then marinated in a delectable curry sauce. These stews also pair nicely with their garlic naan or their paratha, an Indian bread often stuffed with potato, cauliflower or cheese. The portions are generous and the setting is casual, making it a favorite among locals.
