Dindin at the Kantipur Tandoori restau...
Last Sunday, I met up with the gang - Chris, Ian and MkSurf8 - for dinner at a Nepalese/Indian restaurant in Little India. (If there's one thing that really binds us, it is love for food and being adventurous to try out new restaus).
The place was recommended by one of Ian's colleagues who frequented the restaurant.
Located in Verdun Road and a stone's throw away from Mustafa Center, Kantipur Tandoor Restaurant is home to authentic Indian and Nepalese cuisine.
Because it was a Sunday, the streets around the area were packed with locals and tourists. The Filipinos have Lucky Plaza. The Indians (and Banglas (?)) have Mustafa.
I managed to find the restaurant where I was greeted by very nice and smiling wait staff. A few minutes later, Ian arrived followed by Chris and Edsel.
We left most of the ordering to Ian, since his colleague gave him a list of dishes that we tried.
If I remember correctly, these were the dishes we ordered: chicken momo (Himalayan dumplings), a variety of naan, butter chicken, palak paneer, dahl, mahal ka fish methi (seriously that was the name of the dish), dal makhani, and Kashmiri pulav rice.
When the food started coming out, that's when we realized that we ordered a lot. Haha!
It was a very good dinner though. The food was definitely delightful and rich in taste. The staff were very friendly as well. This is one restaurant worthy of a second, third visit.
