India's Tandoori's seasoned chefs harness the flavor-packing power of the tandoori oven to cook North Indian cuisine. Lay the groundwork for a flavorful feast with a loaf of fresh garlic naan ($2.95) or minced lamb samosas ($3.95). The chicken tikka masala, made from boneless tandoor chicken, stakes out stomach territory like a conquistador playing Risk, with special curry and yogurt sauce as the cavalry and artillery ($10.95). Several vegetarian specialties— including the bergan bhartha, tandoori-roasted eggplant with curry and tomatoes ($8.95)—speckle the menu.

India's Tandoori Halal Indian Restaurant
Meticulously prepared dishes brimming with fresh ingredients greet palates at India’s Tandoori Halal Indian Restaurant, a celebrated Hawthorne eatery with a full menu of Indian cuisine. Taking its name from the clay oven often used in Indian cooking, the restaurant serves up signature morsels such as tandoori game hen and channa masala, a Punjabi-style chickpea dish laden with spices. Clay-oven-baked breads known as rotis accompany savory main courses, and desserts in the form of rice pudding add a sweet-ending note to a symphony of flavors, much as most conductors conclude orchestral pieces by distributing brownies to the audience.
