Chapel Hill: Tandoor

David A. | Oct 8, 200208:21 PM

The wife and I tried Tandoor on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. Sigh...yet another mild disappointment. We had Tandoori chicken, saag paneer, lamb rogan josh, and naan. The meal was certainly plentiful, but it was nothing to remind one of England (where I lived for five years) much less India (as I imagine it, or perhaps romanticize it). Most of the meal hovered in the so-so range: not good enough to repeat, not bad enough to regret with much emphasis. Strangely, the Tandoori chicken, apparently the house speciality, was the most disappointing of our dishes. It seemed to be coated with what reminded me of Chinese char-siu sauce(i.e. that red sparerib sauce), kind of sweet, certainly lacking the smoky, slightly burned, slightly tangy, slightly lemony flavor I associate with Tandoori chicken, and love dearly.

Does anyone have any better recommendation when it comes to Indian?
