Tandoori Knights - Calgary

alau2 | Mar 6, 2010 07:08 AM

Tandoori Knights opened recently in the space formerly occupied by Si Senor pizza/tacos in Kensington. (24-12th St. N.W.) The menu is mostly all chicken, veg and seafood. No pork or beef.

We had an excellent tandoori chicken drumsticks ("kalmi kebab tandoori" it's called on the menu) for $14.99 that came with salad (typical out of a bag with one or two cherry tomatoes) and naan bread.

Prawn butter masala ($15.99) was OK. Tandoori cauliflower ($5.99) was huge and a nice veg side.

Looked like the food was cooked fresh in the back but then stored in plastic containers to be heated up in the microwave upon ordering. A bit of a problem as we got it for take out and it definitely did not keep its heat.

Bottom line, a decent place for tandoori chicken, and would point it out to people in the neighbourhood but wouldn't go out of my way for a special trip.

It has the same "seating" set up as the old place, just a few seats along the window.
Other things on menu: biryani, tandoori fish tikka, butter chicken, samosas, pakoras.
