It’s that time again, the office girls’ month end lunch and what great timing, it’s Harare Restaurant Week.  One of the girls had been wishing for Indian food so I suggested we try out Tandoor’s special for HRW.  Their 3 course menu for $15 not only presented a bargain but also a lip smacking variety of our favourite Indian dishes.

We are not vegetarians.  But for my starter I had to have the Paneer Tikka Masala, it’s one of my favourite vegetarian Indian dishes (there are just too many to choose from like Masala Dosa and Idli Sambar, but more about those another time).  Paneer is home-made cottage cheese in solid cube form, marinated with spices and grilled; presented with another favourite, coriander chutney, the flavour combination was perfect.  One of the others had the Reshmi chicken tikka, cubes of chicken breast lightly marinated and grilled, not too spicy.  And the other two had Tandoori Chicken, deep red chilli marinated chicken quarters cooked the Tandoori way, never disappoints.  The portions were generous and that made us very happy.


For mains, we ordered between us butter chicken and lamb curry, with rice and naan.  The butter chicken was so delicious we could not get enough of it, and the naan was crispy and fresh and such a wonderful companion to the curries.  The lamb curry was also very tasty, all in all just fab but the portions here could have been bigger.

The array of dessert choices were so tempting we all wanted to order one of each, but that was just being gluttonous (and the problem is???).  So we all had the Gulab Jamun (pictured here), balls made of semolina, condensed milk and other delicacies which are deep fried and smothered in a rose flavoured syrup, then refrigerated before serving - bliss in a bowl.  The dilemma now was… do we order more?  No no no we must resist, there was more of HRW to come and not enough big clothes in the wardrobe!

We will definitely be back for more some day soon…  Thanks Tandoor, keep it up (and make your main portions bigger please!).
