Tandoori Hut Boat Basin Review by Sadaf Farooqui
Tandoori Hut is an increasingly popular eatery located in Boat Basin, Clifton Block 3. It has been doing roaring business since the last few years, resulting in its fast expansion across the Boat Basin strip.On any night, groups of young men and boys mainly dominate the dining area outside, whilst families are seated inside the air-conditioned family rooms visible in the background.
The menu at Tandoori Hut isvery extensive, with all dishes that are part of traditional Arabic and Lebanese cuisine on offer as well, in addition to the usual barbeque, Chinese and fast food items, besides that, I don’t know about everyone else, but the one item on the menu at Tandoori Hut that is the biggest hit with everyone I know, is the Chicken Makhnie, or Butter Chicken which iseaten with this Garlic Naan that comes piping hot from the tandoor, or puri parathay, the creamy Chicken Makhnie has to be tried to be believed! We also ordered handi of Half Chicken Makhnie cost Rs 450 (price may have changed). It suffices 2 adults easily. Be warned though, that it is made with oodles of cream and butter that lend it its unique taste and smooth texture, which means it, is full of fat and cholesterol.
Verdict: despite being located in the more economical area of Boat Basin, the food at Tandoori Hut is not cheap. However, taste and quality are guaranteed at the extra cost!
