The Tandoori method of cooking derives its name from the traditional Indian oven, known as the Tandoori in which these dishes are cooked. All these dishes are marinated in yoghurt, fresh herbs and selected spices and then barbecued in the Tandoori, imparting the full and fresh flavours associated with this signature style of Indian cuisine. Please order salad if required.

Balti derives its name from the fascinating cooking utensil which infuses the flavour of its cooking contents.
Generally food is eaten directly out of the Balti, without changing to dinner plates, thus ensuring
no flavours are lost.
The traditional style of cuisine is more prevalent in the North West frontier of the Kashmiri valley and it is said that
the cast iron skillet utilised in the preparation of these dishes lends its name to the style.
Freshly ground spices, herbs, plentiful garlic and ghee compliment the exotic flavours and our chefs are able to
individually prepare these dishes to satisfy your palate - be sure when ordering to indicate
how strong you prefer your food!
As with the previous section, our Tava dishes originate from the North West frontier of the Kashmiri valley, yet they have a
completely unique taste and flavour.
They are cooked with whole aromatic spices and vary in heat as the basis of the sauce is made from coriander and green chilli
puree - they can be fairly hot, so beware if you prefer milder dishes!
