Tandoori

The “Tandoor” is a traditional clay oven in which skewered meat is cooked over glowing charcoal. The barbeque flavour is enhanced by subtle marinades, whilst the high temperature sears the meat to retain it’s natural succulence. The unique flavour of Chicken Tandooris and Tikkas have become familiar and well loved in England in recent times as they have been for centuries in India. Tandoori dishes are served on a sizzling platter with salad.
