After starting the year in isolation it was great to get my foodie year up and running. For this I decided to stay local and enjoy some fabulous Punjabi Cuisine at my favourite Indian restaurant the Tandoori Lounge. I love their Punjabi style of food which is very different to your normal Indian restaurant. This is why I find it hard to understand when I see people turn up look at their menu and leave because if you love Indian food then you will love it here.
We decided to go for an early evening table and on our arrival was given a very friendly welcome before being seated at our table. We started with a drink while we had a look at the menu. This consists of vegetarian , seafood , meat starters and mains , biryanis , rice dishes , breads and of course desserts. There is also a good selection of gluten free options just mention when ordering.
For our starters we decided to order the Tandoori Vegetable Kebab and the Punjabi Rashmi Kebab with a delightful Mixed Raita on the side. These were both delicious and full of flavour and spice.
It was now time to order our mains and we couldn’t resist the temptation of ordering our favourite dishes and also remember you can have each dish as spicy as you like. Again just mention when ordering. We chose the Jhinga Karahi a prawn dish mixed with herbs , spices , onions & peppers. The Tandoori Lounge Special Lamb cooked in a punjabi style gravy. To accompany these we chose the Sag Aloo , Jeera Rice and Tandoori Naan. Every dish was cooked perfectly with the flavours and spices of each dish spot on.
Before dessert we had a little break which gave us a chance to have a catch up with owners Sukh & Haneet. They are a lovely couple who along with their young and friendly team try to provide you with the best dining experience possible. So now on to dessert and watch out pastry chefs as I had an absolute delicious Gulab Jamun Trifle a mix of gulab jamun , mango custard , cake , whipped cream , coconut & pistachio. We also had the Gulab Jamun which are soft doughnut’s soaked in a syrup.
This brought to an end another fantastic visit to the Tandoori Lounge. Their punjabi style of food is absolutely delicious and so it will come as no surprise when I say that I would highly recommend a visit to this fabulous Indian restaurant. I for one will be looking to make a return visit in the near future.
Thank You Sukh , Haneet and all the team for a fantastic evening and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
