Tandoori Flame

Posted on December 1, 2013


I rediscovered once again my liking for Indian cuisine.  These days, I frequent the Airport area and my friend Arsha, introduced me to an AYCE Tandoori Flame.  As we walked in, I prayed they would have my favorite, Palak Paneer (spinach and paneer in a thick curry sauce).  Even if it burns me, I always happily and eagerly eat it.  There was always this pleasure of savoring how smooth it is the palate and how complex the layers of flavors in it.  I don’t think I would ever tire of it.

As we walked in the restaurant, the interiors had a south Asian influence as expected.  What I liked most about it was the high ceilings and airy dining area.  The buffet tables were partitioned to the right of the restaurant, where tables of hot and cold offerings were a plenty.  I was overwhelmed with the choices as there were many I haven’t tried before.  I put little helpings on my plate of most of everything just to try that my plate looked like a palette of colors.  I must confess though that I did have bigger portions of my usual suspects, Palak Paneer, Butter Chicken, Vegetable Biryani and Aloo Tikki.  That of course came with Butter Naan and a good helping of Papadum.  Each time I enjoy Indian cuisine, I am still amazed how so many spices can come together beautifully.  If I can only eat it nonstop, I probably will.  If someone would cook this for me everyday, I probably end up being vegetarian.

After a helping of desserts, I wondered why this place has a low rating when all I have tasted was exceptional and the service was very attentive.  It’s a pity that my one vote cannot change this error.  If you take my word for it, go and try it too.  You probably would see me there as I know that was not the last time Arsha and I would come and enjoy their food.
