Tandoori Flame is perceived as North America’s largest Indian restaurant and buffet. The eatery has three locations in Canada: Mississauga, Brampton and Surrey-Delta, B.C.
The buffet in Brampton serves over 180,000 customers annually, according to the restaurant’s website. The restaurant is spread over 14,000 sq ft with enough seats for 500 people.
The buffet prices are different on weekdays and weekends. Supper is usually more expensive than lunch. My friends and I went during supper time, and we had 150 food items in the buffet’s prices for $27.99 with no limits on how much we could eat.
Every dish is made in-house from scratch by their chefs.
As my friends and I entered the place before self-isolation came into effect, we had a cheerful server to greet us.
The restaurant was extremely busy, and we were approached to hang tight for fifteen minutes.
As we stood waiting to be seated, we skimmed through the beverages menu, and I heard the soft and Indian music played over the speakers fixed in the ceiling of the restaurant.
As soon as we stepped into the dining hall and got our table, my friends and I couldn’t wait to go to the buffet.
We were fascinated by the food varieties they had. We began with tidbits, which included thin, crisp, black pepper-embedded poppadoms, a slice of thin-crust pizza, spring rolls, and some vegetable noodles.
My plate was brimming with snacks, which I had to eat. Right after I had starters, I went for the main course. I had too many options that it became an enormous undertaking to choose from.
Finally, I went for Dal Makhani, a classic Indian vegetarian staple made of black lentils and red kidney beans that are cooked in a blend of tomato puree with some seared onion, butter, and cream. Along with Dal Makhani, I opted for garlic naan, a flatbread made in a hot mud oven broiler– garlicky, soft, chewy and charred flickering with margarine.
My heart and my belly were feeling amazing, as that’s what I was nibbling for after coming to Canada.
It was time to make some more room in our stomachs for delicious desserts.
Again, I was in a considerable quandary of what to skip among the number of assortments on offer. As soon as my eyes fell onto North India’s famous Petha, a soft translucent candy usually rectangular produced from the ash gourd vegetable and dipped in the sugar syrup, without taking a second thought I grasped it. Along with it, I took a slice of chocolate cake and a ball of Ras Malai– pistachio studded balls, made in-house with sourced milk.
Tandoori Flame says, “Our guests’ satisfaction is our top priority, and this is why we continuously strive to maintain and improve our guests’ experience as a whole.”
Ultimately, the restaurant’s motto “Our home is your home” proved right.
