Spiced perfection at the Tandoor Chop House…

The streets of Charing Cross are littered with more than just shredded copies of yesterdays Metro and empty McDonald’s bags puff-balling morosely towards Trafalgar Square. Pink heeled hens cackle up to the goldfish bowls of Covent Garden’s cocktail making classes, swarms of tanned & backpacked continental teens marvel inexplicably at the disturbingly dreadful floating Yodas upon whom stone Nelson gazes down in utter despair and tourist masses decant from ‘Dream Girls’ and ‘Kinky Boots’, clutching £10 programmes and warbling all the way back to the tube.

Every now and then though, something happens that’s surprising and rather special; someone opens a restaurant in the sort of area you normally power-walk through to get to somewhere better, only this time Tandoor Chop House is the something better. Actually, it’s something a lot better and if Indian food in the capital doesn’t equate to thickly clotted sauces, slice-able bricks of boiled white rice or poppadums that leave an oil slick trailing behind them to you, then it may just be what you’re after.
