Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre, Basement Level, 11 Cavenagh Road, S(229616) TEL: 6733 8333 With its rich history that goes back to 1985, there’s no questioning the authenticity of Tandoor and its extensive menu of North
Indian dishes. Tucked away in the basement of Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre, the restaurant proffers a sense of exclusivity, with its dark teak furnishing, dim lighting and contemporary decor. As is the speciality of North Indian cuisine, cheese, cream and yogurt feature prominently at Tandoor, and are used to perfection. The paneer mattar ka tikka, stuffed with spiced green peas, Philadelphia cheese and roasted cumin, is a flavourful blend of spices and French herbs, accentuated by a smoky tandoori taste. The mango curry is a treat for the palate, and proves a zesty companion to naan and roti. The ajwaini macchi tikka comes expertly grilled, retaining the freshness of the fish while infusing a chargrilled flavour to it. There’s no mistaking what the restaurant is best at—its tandoori dishes are all must-haves.
