A new Indian spot has opened up shop in the neighborhood. The fresh addition to Briargate, called Urban Tandoor, is located at 8125 N. Academy Blvd.
On the menu, expect to find entrees such as Tandoori Achari chicken kebab/jumbo prawn marinated in yogurt and traditional mustard flavored pickle, goat curry and vegetarian options like the Saag Paneer (mild homemade cottage cheese sauteed with onions, ginger and garlic blended with creamed spinach).
Urban Tandoor has gotten off to an uneven start thus far, with a three-star rating out of 13 reviews on Yelp.
Yelper Wade S., who reviewed Urban Tandoor on July 6, wrote, "We popped in during the soft opening. Our party of three was warmly greeted and promptly seated. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The Chicken Tikka Masala was particularly good, and on its own worthy of a return trip."
Dips M. noted, "The food was excellent, service was friendly, good ambiance and fully stocked bar with generous pours. The fish tikka, chicken tikka, spicy naan, goat biryani, saag paneer, butter chicken and mango phirni were items we ordered and loved. "
Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Urban Tandoor is open from 11 a.m.–10 p.m. on Monday-Thursday and Sunday and 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
