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.
Dessert desirers and rebellious dentists needn’t leave the warmth of the restaurant, as mango kheer is available, plus ice cream ($3.95) for post-dinner brain-freeze contests. While slaying a sweet-toothed dragon, glance around the room and soak up the casual atmosphere. The welcoming ambience and staff are accommodating to any and all spontaneous paneer pow-wows and romantic tandoori roundtables.
