Sat Sri Akal!
Welcome to Little India Bistro & Tandoor. We trust that you will enjoy a truly unique and memorable dining experience whilst indulging yourself in the real taste of fine Indian cuisine.
Flavours of India
India is a vast country with a rich heritage as reflected in its various people, cultures and cuisine. We, at Little India Bistro & Tandoor, have chosen to present some of the more characteristic, yet legendary dishes from North India, especially Punjab. These internationally renowned dishes trace their origin from the invading Mughals. Our food with its Tandoori Kebabs, kormas and other sumptuous delicacies is complemented with Naan breads and Basmati rice (Basmati rice is the king of all rice grown only in the Punjab). The common word ‘curry’ is a British adaptation of the Tamil word ‘Kari’- meaning in effect a seasoned sauce and must never be applied to identify Indian cuisine as a whole.
Spices of Life
5000 years ago, the Himalayan sages conceived the use of spices and herbs as a natural means to balance the metabolism of the body. This knowledge became the corner stone of the Ayurvedic ‘Science of Medicine’. It is the variety and combination of these spices that nourishes both the body and soul – an experience to cherish.
Tandoor – A Timeless Tradition
Villages in North India traditionally use mud stoves (Chullhas) and clay ovens to cook their food. One such oven is the Tandoor which is shaped like a barrel and fired by charcoal. The food, prepared first in a special marinade, is spiked on long metal rods and then cooked in the Tandoor. Little India’s preparation makes our food beautiful to behold and addictive to the palate. Health and Happiness Enjoy!
