We received a flyer about set lunches at d’Tandoor Restaurant at Precinct 10 a couple of months ago. But the car park in Precinct 10 seems designed to ensure maximum heat retention in your car’s cabin, so we tend not to visit.
However, today was overcast and relatively cool, so we finally made it to the restaurant. It has been open already for six months, so we weren’t quick off the mark.
The car park was almost empty, so it was easy to park. But the restaurant was quite full when we arrived, for a late lunch. It is very modern in decor, and sparkling clean. Staff members, when they had a moment, would move around with a cloth and bottle of Windex cleaning the vacated tables.
The menu is quite simple, as you can see below. Service was quick and friendly.
We ordered, and soon the pappadams came.
and then the lassi
Mrs Tropical Expat ordered the vegetarian, but with an upgrade of the drink from cordial to mango lassi, and white rice to basmati rice.
I ordered the Gosht (mutton) set, and upgraded also to a mango lassi.
I try to eat almost no carbohydrates, except those in vegetables, but I couldn’t resist the warm naan. It was delicious. I also try to eat small meals so as to maintain weight control, so, avoiding the rice, the portions were just enough to assuage my hunger without making me full. However, if I wanted to be full, then the portions were not quite big enough.
The neighbouring table had ordered the (chicken) Tandoori. There appeared to be much more chicken than the portion of mutton I was served.
The bill seemed OK and had no surprises. You can pay by credit card, too.
