Beyond Breakfast: Tandoori Grill | Columbus, OH

January 26, 2015

We’ve made a regular habit of taking our boys to the Carriage Place movie theater. They show second-run movies at cheap prices, making for an easy family date night. We’ve also learned to explore many of the great ethnic eateries lining Bethel Road nearby. So on the way to finally see How To Train Your Dragon 2 (excellent movie, btw), we stopped first for dinner at Tandoori Grill.

Tandoori Grill serves Pakistani cuisine, which is similar to Indian fare, if you’re familiar with that.

The space feels fairly new and clean, quite the comparison to the more rustic carryout/market Apna Bazaar next door.

The menu reaches from appetizers, wraps, and kebobs to slow-simmered dishes.

Our meal was off to an excellent start with the fish pakora: tender white fish lightly fried. I could have just eaten a couple plates of that.

Very good potato samosas, too. Crispy without being greasy. Enjoyed by everyone at the table.

We split two entrees amongst our group: the chicken tikka masala and the goat korma.

The chicken tikka masala was as good as we’ve ever had. Very tender, great amount of spice.

We haven’t had much goat, but this too was tender and spicy. Like the rest of the meal, highly recommended.

Oddly enough, we didn’t order any tandoori chicken, but we managed to sneak a peek in the back at the tandoori ovens. They have a couple blazing away. The chicken is grilled in skewers over the grill, while the naan bread is slapped inside the walls of it.

If you’re in search of ethnic eats around Columbus, make sure you add Tandoori Grill to your list. We enjoyed everything we tried, and the menu is big enough to warrant a few return visits.
