Tandoori Bistro is an oasis off the Almaden Expressway that offers subtle spice syntheses to cylindrical oven groupies. After perusing the menu, set the naan-shaped stage for the main course with starters such as samosa chat ($4.95), which stuffs potatoes and peas into a dinner-appropriate pastry served with garbanzo beans and chutneys, or the tandoori chicken salad ($6.95), a citrus-dressed collection of sliced chicken tikka and organic greens. Tandoor dishes are served with rice and house salad, and include the tandoori chicken ($9.95) and the seekh kabab ($10.95), minced, spiced lamb meat cooked on skewers. Main courses like the punjabi chicken curry are also flanked by rice and house salad.
