OC Weekly's Description
Punjabi Tandoor seems like a straightforward, unimpressive addition
to the forker community: masalas and vindaloos and curries. Within these
tried-and-true listings, however, lies a care and beauty for food as
intricate yet overwhelmingly glorious as the beats brought down by the
bhangra drummer who serves as Punjabi's mascot. An order of channa samosa
brings out a trio of the fried potato chunks in a stunning presentation,
with the samosas placed equidistant from one another, promontories in a sea
of furtively hot garbanzos. Fiery red and green chutneys decorate the dish,
alongside cooling lines of raita. It looks like a Desi Christmas.
Tips from foursquare
Try the Chicken Tika Masala and spot it on Foodspotting!
Translation: Paneer = cheese. Bhurji = egg. Tikka = chunk of 'meat'. Makhani = butter. Biryani = rice dish. Masala = name of an Indian spice (not spicy).
Order the Chicken Korma! It's not on the menu, but they'll make it and it's AMAZING! Great staff also!
best indian kitchen on the west coast. LOVE this place.
I always order the paneer tika masala. They never disappoint. Everyone that works there is extremely nice and helpful. Garlic naan is the best. Everything is fresh and made when you order it. <3
