Tandoori Details Tandoori Details


We use the same traditional ‘Tandoor’ oven as Indian villagers to cook our tandooris. These mud stoves and clay ovens are fed with coal or firewood to give the food a distinctive smoked flavour. The food is prepared first in a special marinade, then spiked on long metal rods and inserted into the oven for roasting.

About Us

About Us

With 30 years of experience Owner/Chef delivers a contemporary taste of Indian cuisine. We trust that you will enjoy a truly unique and distinctive dining experience whilst indulging yourself with the true taste of fine cuisine. The many combinations of herbs and spices, dating back to ancient times, are what distinguishes Indian cooking from any other cuisine in the world. These herbs and spices are a natural means to balance the metabolism of the body. The origin of the popular aphorism “The Spice of Life” can perhaps be traced to those times. If you need any help in deciding where to send your taste buds next, don’t hesitate to ask.
