Tandoor - Yes, Express - No
This review is also available on burrp!
Wanted to try this place for quite a while, since it was new and had heard from a few of my friends about the food available there.
Rushed there with colleagues to have a quick lunch assuming, as the name suggests, it would be a express service.
They have an open kitchen in the ground floor. The service hall is both on ground floor and the first floor. We went to the 1st floor as there were only 4 and 2 seater tables in the ground floor. The theme of the restaurant is based on Formula1 and one would find the pics of Michael Schumacher and the F1 cars all over the wall which complements the name of the restaurant.
We were all very hungry and started looking at the menu card. The waiters had absolutely no clue on certain things that we were asking for. They were just blinking their eyes and were directing the questions to other waiters. And the other waiter gave different description of what Subzi Falguni and Perfect Love (Dessert) is once in every five minutes before we decided on what we want to eat. We ordered a masala papad and guess what?? We got 2 masala papads :) I guess its 2 per plate here. For starters we had paneer tikka and Veg Sheek Kebab. Along with it we had the Planter’s Punch and Italian Smooch (Coke mixed with Pudina Leaves and chunks of Lemon)
The waiters were taking their own sweet time to get the food forget serving them. Though there were hardly customers, we repeatedly asking them to serve faster and they claiming they have express service, it all resulted in delayed service. All the waiters used to disappear together. Even if we wanted water, we had to wait till they got there.
For the main course, we had rotis, naans, etc.. and the Subzi Falguni and the Kadai Paneer. This tasted good, but, was toooooooooo oily.
Now, comes the interesting part. We had one of the best jamoons for dessert :) the sweetness was apt and was rightly done. Just delicious :D I would go there again just to eat the Gulab Jamoon Another colleague tried the masala lassi and that was just perfect
A sincere advise to Tandoor Express Management. The quality and the taste of food was good but, they need to badly improve on the service at the earliest.
FYI: This restaurant belongs to Azad Group Enterprise, the same group to which Tandoor on MG Road belongs
Tandoor Express is located @ Manjunatha complex, Ground Floor, 22nd Main, Opp BDA Complex, Banashankari 2nd Stage, Banashankari, Bangalore
