An entire marinated chicken on the bone, a succulent lamb chop, or a plate of paneer can emanate from Tawa Tandoor’s namesake clay oven. However, the eatery’s dishes do not originate exclusively from the tandoor oven—or exclusively from India. While traditional chicken, lamb, and goat curries swim in sauces from almond to vinegar-infused red pepper, the complementary Asian fusion plates delight palates with shrimp in hot garlic sauce or paneer marinated in soy sauce and chili. To accommodate dietary restrictions, the kitchen team prepares plentiful vegetarian options, crafted with veggies such as black lentils and okra, as well as fried rice and a variety of Indian breads, from flat naan to puffy poori. From the drink department, guests might select the classic mango lassi beverage, which is more refreshing than a Darth Vader appearance at a Star Trek convention.
