Indian chefs methodically gather spices to accentuate flavor, unlike pantry burglars, who hastily collect armfuls of cinnamon sticks hoping to inspire an America's Most Wanted reenactment.

Chefs populate an extensive menu with zesty curries, juicy kabobs, and piquant vegetarian entrées at Tandoori Times Indian Bistro. A skewer of spicy chicken seekh kabob springs from a clay tandoori oven with the enthusiastic gusto of Errol Flynn's stunt double, eager to playfully fence with taste buds ($16.95), whereas tender lamb vindaloo patiently simmers with morsels of lamb and potatoes ($12.95). Saag paneer showcases homemade cubes of cottage cheese set afloat in a sea of ginger-kissed spinach ($10.95), and the veg platter charms herbivores more effectively than a bouquet of long-stem rhubarb with samosas, fried onion slices, and crispy cottage cheese ($10.95).
Servers usher sizzling entrées to diners amid the crimson walls and vibrant drapes that envelop the dining rooms at both locations. Patrons can lounge on an outdoor patio or nosh indoors as a belly dancer rhythmically weaves through tables and chairs, attempting to channel the energies of a magic loom.
Tandoori Times Indian Bistro
At each of Tandoori Times Indian Bistro’s two locations crimson and cream walls surround tables weighed down with Indian curry, rice, and tandoori dishes. While morsels of lamb, seafood, and chicken prepare for supper by bathing in aromatic Indian spices, soft naan bread keeps diners entertained by diving into appetizers of mango chutney.
Patrons can let the wind sweep through their eyelashes on one of the outdoor patios and belly dancers weave their way across dining rooms on Fridays and Saturdays, which contributes to each location's traditional atmosphere.
