A tandoor is a cylindrical clay oven used in punjab northern india in which food is cooked over a suppressed fire. Temperatures in a tandoor can approach 480°c (900°f). It is common for tandoor ovens to remain lit for long periods of time to maintain the high cooking temperature. A very healthy way of cooking. All dishes served with tawa vegetables.

Dining room felt dingy...my meal was okay mediocre at best. Dull in flavor for Indian cuisine. I’d go back to try another dish to compare. The paneer was meh.
