Café Tandoor is a casual Indian restaurant where you order your food at the counter and seat yourself. A waiter brings your order when it’s ready. The carpeted, bright yellow and red dining room is often filled with families that have gravitated to the tasty, affordable eatery since it opened in 2004. Breads and meats cooked at high heat in the tandoor, an Indian clay oven, are the specialty of the house. The naan is wonderfully fluffy and crisp, and the cooks also make roti, a crisp, crepelike whole-wheat bread that you can use to sop up lamb, chicken, or fish curry. Wraps are a good choice here, as are the vegetable samosas, which pack a little heat and come with deeply flavored tomato-stewed chickpeas. The spicy chaat salad, made with hearty green romaine and your choice of tandoori chicken, ground lamb, or grilled paneer, is tangy and satisfying without being greasy. The spinach pakoras are crisp, golden nuggets loaded with fresh spinach leaves. Lassi, juice, or beer is the way to go for a beverage, because the wine selection is limited to four varieties of Indian wines. Lunch and dinner daily.
