At the Tandoori Palace


 

This was a snatch of the food at Tandoori Palace Restaurant in Marszalkowska, Warsaw, during one of our visits about four years ago. This is actually our second favorite Indian restaurant, the first being Nikhil’s Asian Village in Raszyn, just south of Warsaw. The ownership is the same and the menu and recipes are the same, but there is less clientele so the food is made fresh. There’s still a difference between dishes made to order and those which have been on standby for a few hours, so we usually go the extra mile for Raszyn. The Raszyn one doesn’t deliver, and the Marszalkowska one does, but still it is worth it.

We find that spending 250 PLN on take home curry makes 10 meals in total, so only 25 PLN per head on a curry meal. It may seem expensive but you do get a lot of mileage out of it, and so we like to do this about once a month. Sometimes like here we go to the restaurant, and then just get what we don’t eat bagged up.

I could tell an amusing story about Elena’s first experience of a real Indian style curry – when she came over to the UK and my parents asked if she liked spicy food. She said yes, but what she had in mind was the Belarusian version of Indian food. When my parents proceeded to give full spicey-licence to their culinary skills and produce as Indian a curry as I think any non-Indian could ever make, my poor little wife (fiancee then) was begging for a glass of water!

But she has got used to it since then.
