Tandoor Grill KL: New weekday set lunches showcase marvellous Indian meals starting at RM16++
September 12, 2023
Tandoor Grill has introduced new weekday set lunches that start from RM16++, a brilliant bargain for beautifully prepared Indian fare in KL's city centre.
Tandoor Grill's Chicken Set Lunch (RM25++) is a bestseller: Chicken varuval is partnered with tomato rice, garlic naan, mushroom potato masala, sambar, salad, roasted papad and a dessert of the day - a delightful diversity at a remarkably reasonable price.
A tribute to tandoor traditions, Tandoor Grill's Tandoori Chicken Set (RM28++) is another should-try - the chicken is tantalisingly chunky and tender, temptingly seasoned for savoury succulence to sink our teeth into, complete with a confident char with hints of smokiness.
The Tandoori Egg Masala Set (RM18++) is excellent - the tandoor-cooked eggs are fragrant and flavourful, soaked in a creamy, mildly spicy masala-based sauce that's loaded with capsicum and vegetables. It's absolutely addictive with steamed basmati rice, roasted papad, salad and dessert - we'd happily return simply for this.
The Tandoori Chicken Noodles (RM18++ with dessert) is also irresistible - juicy tandoor-grilled chicken is tossed with noodles and a surprisingly complex mix of herbs and spices. It's not our typical chicken noodles; this is a testament to how even familiar-seeming recipes at Tandoor Grill are elevated with top-notch produce and cooking techniques.
The Poori Set (RM16++) is a confident meat-free choice - the large, fluffy-puffy pooris are alluringly airy, holding their shape and texture for an impressive time, bolstered with aloo bhaji (gently spiced potatoes), raita for a perky piquancy, roasted papad, salad and dessert.
We wrap up this feature with Paneer Tikka Wrap (RM20++ with dessert), plumply and pleasurably packed with cottage cheese and vegetables, to dunk in house-blended mint sauce. The kitchen's own-baked bread is tender, the cottage cheese is tasty, while the vegetables are uplifting, coming together harmoniously for a well-balanced ensemble.
The wraps are also available in set lunch variations of chicken or mutton seekh kebab, both with egg.
