Sometimes you can discover your new favourite restaurant purely by chance.

Located in the heart of Adelaide, the Taj Tandoor restaurant is set inside a heritage listed Victorian style building near the East Terrace end of Rundle Street. The décor is a mix of handmade wooden furniture, colourful artwork and large windows providing unobstructed views of Rundle Street.

Specialising in curries and tandoori charcoal cooking created from locally sourced produce and fresh spices, the restaurant has a comprehensive menu catering to meat lovers and vegetarians.

Welcoming and friendly staff are happy to assist you in your selections, from a starter of pappadums through to your main course and drinks. It is an extensive menu, which will take some careful consideration, as there are so many taste-tempting choices all made from scratch on the premises.

Entrees, priced from $8 to $14.80, include a wide variety of dishes. The Vegetable Pakora, a combination of spinach, potato, onion, cauliflower, in chickpea flour and spices, served with salad is highly recommended. The spiced potatoes, nuts and green peas in the pastry Samosas are also delicious. Chicken, fish and kesori tikka are just a few of the other entrée options.

The menu choices are amazing, ranging in price from $19.50 for Chicken Butter Masala or Beef Malabar through to $22.50 for Venison Korma. Vegetarians have nine main course options ranging in price from $10.80 for Jeera Alu. The cumin flavoured curried potatoes to $15.50 for Saag Paneer, the ground spinach and cheese cubes cooked with fenugreek, fennel, ginger, garlic and onions, garnished with tomato & coriander. Try the Tandoori Chicken Mix, a personal favourite, tandoori, tikka and kesori chicken pieces served with salad and mint sauce on the side. It's absolutely delicious and the serving size is almost too much for one person to eat.

Side dishes such as naan and rice dishes are also available along with a range of South Australian wine and popular beer, cider and soft drinks. If you are with a group, you might prefer a banquet for 4 people. There are two options priced at $34.80 per person and $39.80 per person for three courses and accompaniments.
