Profile Last Updated: April 01, 2009
Located in North York, Tandoori Queen specializes in the tastes of Indian and East African cuisine. The sixty-five seat restaurant offers a tranquil scene to feast upon family style home-cooked meals, while a few picnic tables at the entrance offer al fresco dining. Composed of a long room of mellow yellow hues, contemporary seating can be found on the right side, and an oblong visible kitchen to the left runs the length of the space. A small bar at the back provides single diners a place to eat.
The Familiar West
The menu at Tandoori Queen is well balanced with an assortment of eastern and western fare. Breakfast is served with the standard trimmings of omelettes, bagels, French toast, muffins, and croissants. Sandwiches are also what you would expect, offering a selection of tuna, chicken salad, grilled cheese, and burgers. But this is where the familiar ends at Tandoori Queen, and the rest of the bill of fare is dedicated to over sixty dishes of not-so-familiar cuisine.
The Exotic East
Made in the clay tandoor oven, barbecued items span beef and chicken shish kebabs, chicken roti, beef ribs, lamb chops, and beef mishkaki. Curry dishes run the gamut of vindaloo, karahi, butter or chili chicken, shrimp masala, and chana masala. For family feasting, combo plates are available for groups of four, six, and eight, and include portions of chicken kebabs, lamb karahi, veggie curry, veal biryani, with naan bread, salads, and sauces.
