India's folk tales come to life at the Tandoor.
The $68++ set dinner menu is an epic jaunt through 14 dishes from across India. According to legend, the Malmali Seekh Kebab, a tender cinnamon-smoked minced mutton skewer, was created for a toothless Indian Nawab; the Goan Fish Curry, consisting of chunks of perfectly cooked Ocean Perch in a tangy coconut curry, pays tribute to the talented musicians from the state; and the delicately spiced lamb shank, Nalli Gosht, was an ayurvedic recipe used to treat a king's terrible cold.
A Tandoor exclusive, the Mango Curry with its unique mix of sweet, ripe mangoes in a savoury, spicy curry is the restaurant's new head chef Sujit Naik's own account of how a humble dish that his grandmother made inspired his future vocation.
The Tandoor, located at Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre, got a makeover after 28 years and reopened its doors last month.
