Among the first Indian restaurants to grace the North York region, Tandoori House maintains a multigenerational staff of chefs who beckon diners with an extensive menu of Indian delicacies. After groups settle on appetizers via telepathic debate, servers grace tables with starters such as specialty naan stuffed with chicken and almonds or an array of assorted Indian snacks comprised of samosas, seekh kebabs, and chicken tikka. Come the main course, entrees emerge fresh from the tandoori oven, including half or whole chickens marinated in yogurt and freshly ground spices, as well as the shrimp aftabi, dipped in an aromatic tomato sauce. The mushroom masala—a medley of fungi spiced by a mild creamy curry—represents one of more than 10 vegetarian dishes available to herbivores and carnivores wearing herbivores’ clothing. Though not included in today’s deal, duos through sextets may peruse desserts such as the gulab jamun, a dish of fried cheese balls dipped in syrup and accompanied by warm rose water.
The chefs at Tandoori House blend traditional Indian spices into each dish. Their focus is on creating authentic flavours, marinating chicken in yogourt and freshly ground spices before baking it in traditional clay ovens and cooking lamb in tomato-based curry sauces.
