In the mid-1980s, 71 Ilam Road was converted from a suburban family home into a bank, the National Bank, university branch. When that moved to Riccarton Road, Tandoori Palace took over and has been an asset to the University district ever since. Parking is easy to find.
We have always been abe to find a selection of quality dishes when dining here. Usually we go for the curries from medium to hot, and with raita and pickles. The naan bread we had tonight with our curries was one of the best - very crisp and tasty.
It's fully licenced for alcohol, but has "bring-your-own wine" at $4 per person corkage.
One reviewer asks how they get that authentic Indian creaminess in their dishes? My guess is that (as I can cheat at home) it comes from bulk flasks of reduced cream. Calories galore, but worth it.
The young staff are pleasant and attentive, the decor is restful, the Hindi music muted, all going to make up a first-class dining experience.
