It was great to be back at the Tandoori Lounge today to continue our support not only for the hospitality industry but also local businesses in my hometown of Hornchurch. We managed to support them during lockdown by ordering takeaways but were really missing not being able to dine in the restaurant itself. We entered on Sunday and straight away there is a hand sanitizer on the table directly in front of you. The staff were wearing face shields and there was plenty of space between each table. So all precautions were taken care off. I started with a pint of Cobra the perfect beer for Indian food while we looked at the menu. The menu is quite extensive and offers a fabulous selection of the finest Punjabi Cuisine and don’t forget to enquire about their Vegan & Gluten Free options.
We decided to start with the Chilli & Garlic Mogo which are fried cassava cooked in garlic , soya & chilli sauce. We also ordered the Tandoori Paneer Tikka this is an Indian cheese marinated in yoghurt and cooked in a clay oven and the Lamb Chops marinated in lemon , herbs & spices.

Now it was on to our mains where we chose the Jhinga Karahi these are king prawns mixed with herbs & spices , the Tandoori Lounge Special Lamb which is boneless pieces of lamb cooked Punjabi style , Tandoori Bhartha a delightful smoked aubergine dish , Steamed Rice & Tandoori Roti

I finished with a fabulous Pistachio Kulfi an Indian style ice cream to round off another fantastic visit to the Tandoori Lounge. I really would highly recommend a visit here so you can enjoy some of the finest Punjabi Cuisine. This definitely is the best Indian Restaurant in Essex and I’m so lucky that it’s in my hometown of Hornchurch.
Thank You to owners Sukh , Honey and our waitress Chloe for looking after us today and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
