    Happened on this place randomly when geography was the most important consideration for a convenient lunch venue with a friend. I wasn't expecting much but I was very pleasantly surprised. My friend had never been either but had tried their food at a catered event a few months ago. Everything we ordered at our lunch was notably well-prepared and flavorful . . .

    Image
    Samosas
    Crispy exterior and herbaceous, potatoey interior. The exteriors were chewier than what I'm used accustomed to. I don't know enough about samosas to know whether this was correct, intentional, overworked dough or what have you but I really liked it that way. The chutneys were both terrific.

    Image
    Chicken 65
    A stand-out version of a dish that has seemingly innumerable variations. This one was comprised of tender, moist and boldly flavorful chicken surrounded by a perfectly light and crispy exterior. Not at all saucy, which was a departure from just about every version I've ever had but I thought it was great.

    Image
    Tamil Style Goat Chettinad
    This was my friend's choice and I'm so glad he ordered it. Again, tender, nicely cooked meat (some small bones and cartilage) in a complex, flavorful sauce. The coconut here was just enough to perfume the dish without overwhelming it.

    Image
    Chicken Vindaloo
    Decided on chicken over lamb and this was also a winner. Bright, bold flavors and -- by default, because were not asked for our preference -- quite spicy. Maybe once you order the goat, they just assume. :D A great take on this.

    Image
    Punjabi Chana Masala
    A slight variant (less tomato/onion, different seasoning/herbs) on the more common Mughlai versions I'm used but I really love this, too. Chickpeas were perfectly tender but not mushy in the least.

    Image
    Naan
    Very nice, flavorful. We also order a house roti that was sprinkled judiciously with some herbs and fresh garlic.

    All in all, a great meal and one that rivals any similar ones I've had recently. I realize it's not exactly apples to apples but as much as I enjoyed my recent lunch at Pakistani OMG Nafisa's Kitchen in Morton Grove, I think I liked this even more. Looking forward to going back and checking out more of their fairly vast menu.

    Had another stellar lunch here earlier this week . . .

    Image
    Chicken 65 - Boneless chicken pieces soaked in spices, deep fried and sauteed with green onion and ginger.
    After hearing me rave about having had this last time, my friend wanted to try it. So, we ordered it again. Just as enjoyable this time.

    Image
    Lamb Boti Kebab - boneless cubes of lamb marinated in yogurt, ginger, garlic, skewered and roasted in clay oven.
    Fork-tender, unctuous pieces of lamb that were really nicely cooked.

    Image
    Gobi Manchurian - batter-fried florets of cauliflower tossed in Manchurian sauce.
    Fun and tasty dish. Nicely balanced and definitely not too sweet.

    Image
    Daal Tadka - daal (lentils) cooked with tomatoes, onion, ginger, garlic and ground turmeric.
    Loved this one. Plump and tender lentils in a rich and boldly flavorful sauce.

    Image
    Chicken Tikka Masala - Tandoori Chicken tikka cooked in cream, onion and tomato sauce.
    Zesty, zingy and containing some veg, this was quite different than just about every other take I've ever had. Really loved it. Butter Chicken, which is also on the menu, is probably more like the versions I've usually been served. This was nothing like them.

    Image
    Rice
    Tender, aromatic and flavorful.

    Image
    Naan
    Crispy, tender, aromatic.

    I'm no expert on this cuisine but after having eaten here a couple of times, I think there's something truly special going on here. Really looking forward to my next visit and trying more of the menu. There's probably a lot more I could say but I'll save that for after those future visits.

    Another fine meal at THC. For once, it not being a lunch after which I had to return to work, we opted to have some wine, Indian wine . . .

    Image
    Soul Tree 2016 Sauvignon Blanc
    Having chosen this only because of its provenance -- it's one of only two Indian wines on the list -- it was crazy how well this paired with the food. And at $34/bottle, it was priced very nicely.

    Started with a couple of appetizers I hadn't tried before . . .

    Image
    Chilly Paneer - Fresh Indian Cottage cheese batter-fried and tossed in Chef’s special chilli-garlic sauce
    A very similar prep to the Gobi Manchurian pictured upthread. Really enjoyed this variation on a theme.

    Image
    Mix Vegetable Pakora - Batter fried onion, chili, potato and spinach fritters
    Iirc, in the past, I've usually been served these as whole pieces of veg that had been battered and fried. In this instance (and maybe some others), it was blended veg fritter that was aggressively seasoned and fried very nicely. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

    Image
    Dal Makhani - Simmered black lentils cooked to perfection with ginger and tomatoes
    This is one of my favorites and I thought this take did the dish proud.

    Image
    Butter Chicken - Boneless pieces of tandoori roasted chicken cooked with butter tomato gravy
    Again, bearing little resemblance to the butter chickens I've been served elsewhere and yet still a very enjoyable rendition. A bit more zip, a bit more heat and some refreshing textural heterogeneity, as well.

    Image
    Lamb Vindaloo - Traditional Goan dish of lamb cooked in a hot and tangy flavorful sauce
    I'd had the chicken vindaloo on my first visit and this dish was every bit as good or better than that. Loved the heat and the depth of flavor here. Also appreciated the tender, slightly fatty lamb which was moist to the bite, rather than dry and overcooked. Not hiding anything in here.

    Can't wait to go back. There are so many tempting items on the menu that I still haven't tried like biryani, Kashmiri lamb rogan josh, navratan korma and an entire selection of street food on the "Ugly Delicious" section of the menu.

    Wow, did our group of 6 order too much food (part of the reason was that 2/6 of our group were kids)! In addition to a bunch of already established favorites, we also tried a number of new (to us) items. Happily and unsurprisingly, it was all quite delicious.

    We'd still not tried the biryani and on Wednesdays, if you order one biryani, you get an additional half-order for free. So, it seemed like the perfect time to give it a go. With the exception of the daal tadka, which could be my personal favorite, I'm only posting pics of the items we hadn't tried before . . .

    Image
    Lamb Dum Biryani - full order - basmati rice and lamb pieces richly flavored with saffron, fresh herbs, spices and cooked in dum-style.
    Heavily seasoned and intensely flavorful. Based on the top crust and how hot the bowl was, I'm guessing this was baked in the oven for a few moments before it was served. Absolutely wonderful.

    Image
    Goat Dum Biryani - half order - basmati rice and succulent pieces of goat richly flavored with saffron, fresh herbs and spices and cooked in dum- style.
    As good as -- or maybe even better than -- the lamb version. The goat was even more tender and moist that the lamb was, and the lamb was great.

    Image
    Daal Tadka - daal cooked with tomatoes, Onion, ginger, garlic and ground turmeric.
    As I mentioned above, this is a personal favorite. It'll be hard to return without ordering it every time.

    Image
    Trio Of Breads
    Left to right: Lamb Keema Naan (mildly spiced minced lamb meat stuffed naan is packed with delicious flavors), Garlic Naan (leavened bread topped with garlic and baked in clayoven) and Tandoori Roti (whole wheat bread baked in clayoven).
    Breads are really at thing at TCH. A special shout-out to the spectacular lamb keema naan, which would have made for a totally satisfying meal on its own.

    Image
    Lamb Saag - lamb curry with a big taste of fresh spinach, green chilies and cilantro cooked with homemade spice blend.
    Fresh and vibrant, the moist and tender chunks of lamb went perfectly with the spinach.

    Image
    Aloo Gobi - cauliflower florets and diced potatoes tossed in onion-tomato sauce.
    A distinctive take in which it seemed like the potatoes may have been pre-roasted before they were added to the rest of the ingredients.

    Image
    Fish Tikka - Mahi-mahi -- or in this case, salmon, marinated in mustard seeds powder, ginger-garlic paste and cooked in clay oven.
    Nice crust, well-seasoned and perfectly moist on the inside. The only dish we ordered that was cooked exclusively in the tandoor. There's an ample section of similar offerings. I plan on ordering at least one of those next time.

    We also ordered the Chicken 65, Gobi Manchurian and Chicken Vindaloo, and the kitchen also sent out an order of Daal Makhani for us. All were delicious. The vindaloo was a touch salty for my palate but I liked the daal makhani even more than I did the first time we had it.

    I've now been 4 times in five weeks and am already looking forward to my next visit; thinking about what I'm going to order. As I mentioned up top, I originally stumbled upon this place when I let geography randomly decide where a friend and I were going to meet for lunch. Now, not only do I feel damned lucky to have found it, but considering they've now been open for almost exactly a year, I'm kicking myself for not having found it sooner.

    I like the "thank you" button idea. For now, let me just say a big thank you to Ronnie for starting this thread on Tandoor Curry Hotspot and continuing to report on it. Your photos are also very helpful, Ronnie!

    I went to Tandoor Curry Hotspot for the first time with my sister before shopping at Woodman's across the street (she lives in the city but loves an expedition to Woodman's). We enjoyed everything about it: the decor, the ambience, the cordial service, the menu, the flavors (!), the portions (!), and the leftovers (!).

    I agree with all of Ronnie's comments about the goat biryani. I haven't even finished what I brought home, and I'm already eager to order it again. But, having studied the online menu at home, there are so many other things on the menu I want to try too.

    My sister ordered the lamb saag, which she considers the "lasagna test" of Indian restaurants (as a good Italian restaurant makes a good lasagna, so a good Indian restaurant makes a good lamb saag). She loved it. She also loved the goat in my biryani.

    There are two Indian restaurants between where I live and Tandoor Curry Hotspot, but it's the one I am very eager to get back to soon. Thanks also, Ronnie, for the reminder about Biryani-and-a-Half Wednesdays!

    Somehow I missed the earlier posts, but found this as a result of the Favorite Restaurants Right Now thread.

    Really great looking food. I know I will try this because my mom lives 5 minutes away and I don't think I'll have to twist her arm too hard to check this one out.

    Thanks for the exploration and reporting back!

    I went here over the weekend and enjoyed it. We were only 2 so we lacked a lot of ordering power.

    We had:

    Papdi Chaat
    Tandoori Shrimp
    Lamb Chilly Masala
    Garlic Naan
    Onion Kulcha

    Honestly, my favorite thing might have been the chaat. Fewer crunchy bits than I have recalled in other chaats, but extremely flavorful. The lamb was also a highlight. Just the right amount of spice and great depth of flavor.

    Service was excellent and really attentive (we were one of only a couple of tables at the time, so this may have played a role, but I think they are just on it). As they served the lamb, they offered to remake it if it was too spicy (it wasn't). They sent out a comped dessert of Galab Jamun over Kheer.

    As I mentioned, they were not too busy at the end of a Saturday night (no carryout business that I saw while we were in). All the checking in and mentioning of the specials makes me think they could use some more traffic. This very much seems to be a family affair they can use some love.

    Based on our experience and other things to try on the menu, I'll definitely be back, eager to explore more. Thanks for getting this place on my radar.

    Mike, Katie: really glad you each gave it a shot and liked it. I think it's a pretty special place, if for no other reasons than their food is great/beyond typical, and I know of no other place anywhere in the northern burbs to get this cuisine at this level. I don't know the details but I know that Chef/Owner Sandeep used to work at The Four Seasons, though I'm not sure what his role was there. Either way, he has some excellent skills and a very good palate.

    I try to get over to TCH every 10 days or so. It calls to me, lol. I still don't think I've tried half the items on the menu. With each visit I chip away at that, while also ordering a favorite or two from previous visits. I was in last week and had another great dinner. With one exception, I'm not going to bother posting images of items I've already posted here (no, not even my beloved daal tadka :wink:) but here are few of the items we tried for the first time . . .

    Image
    Table Card
    Okay, it was dinner, so I didn't order this but next time I'm there for lunch, I'm definitely going to try the Thali. Needless to say, it's a very popular order at lunch time.

    Image
    Somosas
    Fried crispy, with a relatively strong exterior that's dusted lightly with a zesty set of seasonings.

    Image
    Somosas
    Just a delight. Perfect texture inside and extremely flavorful.

    Image
    Tandoori Chicken
    As the name of the place implies, the tandoor is strong at TCH. We'd had a few items that featured tandoor-cooked ingredients before but never just a full-on tandoor item. This chicken was excellent. Very moist and extremely well seasoned.

    Image
    Bhindi
    How did I make it 5 visits without trying one of my all-time favorites?! This version was really tasty and I especially loved the tender-not-mushy tender of the pods.

    Image
    India Gate Soda
    From the menu: Refreshing digestive drink made with fresh lime or lemon juice, club soda, black pepper powder, black salt and garnish with fresh herbs.
    They sent this out for us and I really liked it. Very refreshing and with the herbs and seasoning, it was very food-friendly.

    Had lunch today at another north-suburban restaurant in this category (no reason to mention any names) and it was weak, weak, weak compared to Tandoor Curry Hotspot. This place is a gem. I can't wait to go back again (and undo today's lesser lunch in the process).

    Had another lovely meal here last week that I wanted to document. Again, really trying to focus on ordering items I haven't yet tried. So, when we bring friends who haven't been before, we do order a few of our faves but also try to branch out. In general, my posts are focused on the not-previously-ordered items.

    Image
    Papdi Chaat
    Really loved this take. Thought the flavors were bright, bold and nicely balanced. Enjoyed the wide range of textural contrasts, from tender, to crunch to crispy.

    Image
    Lamb Keema Naan & Bullet Naan
    The lamb keema naan is terrific and basically a main course unto itself. Stuffed with well-seasoned ground lamb, it's rich and savory. The bullet naan is stuffed with jalapenos, in this case, very fiery ones. Just a couple of fun, delicious and well baked breads from the tandoor.

    Image
    Goan Fish Curry
    I continue to be impressed by the fish offerings at TCH. Never overcooked and always fresh, this fish was rich and delivered a nice bit of heat, too.

    Image
    Baigan Bharta
    Clay oven-roasted eggplant with onions, tomatoes, fresh herbs and chef’s special blend of spices. This was tender, flavorful and extremely smoky. Chef told us that he was trying to recreate the version he grew up, which he loves.

    Image
    Chicken Saag
    Really enjoyed the flavorful, well-rounded lamb saag on a previous visit and this iteration with chicken was every bit as enjoyable.

    Image
    Meerut Style Goat Curry
    Rich and unctuous. Loved the seasonings here. I'd had the Tamil-style goat chettinad on a previous visit but this very different regional take on goat may have been even more enjoyable.

    Heading back later this week for lunch with a small group and hopefully, some ordering power. Looking forward to sharing a few favorites with the group and trying a few more of TCH's renditions that I haven't tried yet.

    I was again in the area on Friday and got takeout from here.

    Our order was

    Gobi Manchurian
    Chicken 65
    Chicken Tikka Lassooni
    Lamb Saag
    Baigan Bharta
    Tandoori Roti
    Onion Kulcha

    Overall, I remain impressed with the flavors from this place.

    To me, the standouts were the Chicken 65, Lamb Saag, and Baigan Bharta.

    Chicken 65 is a favorite. I think I still prefer the version at The Spice Room, but this was crispy, well-spiced, and very tasty.

    I really liked the lamb dish, but I don't think we got what we ordered (Lamb Saag) since it didn't have visible green or spinach in it (although the version pictured upthread doesn't look nearly as green to me as the later Chicken Saag does). Anyway, can't be sure what we received (Kadai Lamb maybe?), but I enjoyed it.

    The Baigan Bharta was much smokier than other versions I've had (as Ronnie mentioned above). I really loved the mix of smoke and spices.

    The Chicken Tikka Lassooni was pretty overcooked, which was unfortunate. I think it was all white meat. It was well spice and ate well with the mint chutney or some of the Bhaigan Barta, but I'm not sure I'd order this one again for carryout.

    Gobi Manchurian was pretty tasty, but suffered the most from being carried out. We probably let it sit an extra 5 minutes before picking it up, but it was getting kind of soggy after the short drive home. Not sure this is the best carryout choice either so I'll own that one.

    Anyway, I am excited to try more of the menu (especially dining in). I will note it has been pretty empty the couple of weekend nights we stopped in. I don't know how business is going, but more people should try this place regardless.

    Part of the small group we leaned heavily on Ronnie's ordering experience with Tandoor Curry Hotspot and were well rewarded with a lovely balanced lunch.

    Highlights for me were the wonderful crisp and flavor of dishes I'm typically ambivalent about such as Chicken 65, Mix Vegetable Pakora and Gobi Manchurian. Chicken Vindaloo was spicier and better balanced than any version I've had in the past, I never really 'got' this dish before now.

    Naans were a highlight, especially Bullet Naan, a verging on spicy naan with jalapeno. Lamb naan everyone else's favorite, I bit the Bullet. Dal Taka may have been my favorite dish of the day, I'd go back just for this scooped with Bullet Naan.

    Great friendly informed service, comfortable seating, lots of parking, and about 40% full at lunch when we left. A mild treck from my house at the NW tip of Chicago proper but well worth a half gallon of Costco gas, which was $3.19 when I stopped on the way to lunch.

    Thanks for the introduction Ronnie.

    I think the operative word for Tandoor Curry Hotspot is balance as both Ronnie and GWiv noted.

    I was there for lunch with Wife #1 a few weeks ago.

    The restaurant is small -- I'd guess about 30 or so seats. It's clean, bright and attractively decorated.

    We started with the samosa appetizer, which was the weakest item as the crust was tough. It was thick and fried hard which made it difficult to cut open. The potato and pea filling was fine.

    Then we both had the thali -- she the veg and me the non-veg. Everything had plenty of flavor, but nothing was overwhelming. There was a reasonable amount of heat -- at first it was minor then built up as the meal went along -- but it never took over. The chef is a master of spicing.

    Quantities were generous; we took leftovers home. We certainly will return.

    We were there on a Saturday for a late lunch (arrived around 1:30 pm) and were the only customers. I hope this was not typical as this fine restaurant deserves support.
    Where there’s smoke, there may be salmon.

    Ronnie S. et al…
    Man o man, you weren’t kidding!
    The four of us arrived for dinner service yesterday, and were amazed
    at the nuanced flavors and variety of textures from A to Z. ( We ordered enough for 8.) To quote Gary, “ too much is just enough.”

    Very slow in the dining room, but carry out orders were steadily being picked up, so we had the full attention from the delightful co owner (?)

    Just two small flaws, IMO…
    The braised goat was just a tad under braised, making it difficult to enjoy the gnarly bits. Saag paneer was a tad runny for my taste, but what an amazing meal.
    And the chicken 65!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I wasn’t expecting much from the Kadhi Pakora, but holy cow.

    We need to spread the word ( or perhaps not)

    …best Chana Masala ever. How did they get the that texture?

    We all enjoyed the texture/ flavor of the Samosa. Especially the wrapper!

    Does anyone know why the Wednesday biryani-and-a-half special is called the Biryani Night special on the website? Is that new, or was it always called that? It gives the impression that the special is only available during the dinner hours on Wednesday, but I cannot find any wording on the website that says it isn't available during the lunch hours as well.

    It might be overly lawyerly, but the difference between their "Tuesday Locals & Industry Night" special with specified hours, and the lack of clarification on the Wednesday Biryani Night is encouraging for lunch applicability.

    Gave this place a try after seeing all of Ronnie's great reviews of the place. Plus I live 5 minutes away so had to give it a go. Only had Indian food once about 1000 years ago. We did take out Saturday night. Had the Chicken 65, the fried cheese and the lamb kebab appetizer. Had the garlic naan and the lamb naan. Also ordered the fish curry.

    All were excellent. Will definitely be a regular now.

    Only issue was placed the order at 4:30 when they opened. The lady told me it would be ready in 50 minutes. Got there on time and there was one table dining and no one else waiting. Sat there for nearly a half hour waiting for the food. That's unacceptable. If they would've told me 1.5 hours when I called I would've showed up in 1.5 hours. Don't say 50 minutes if you can't deliver on that.

    I've continued to visit TCH on a regular basis over the past few months. Chef Sandeep's food remains consistently excellent and, at least in my experience, service has been spot-on. I live so close, I've never carried out, so I've only experienced sitting down, ordering and dining in. That seems to always go quite well.

    This past week we were sent out a new/experimental dish. It was a veg medley that included some house-made paneer . . .

    This was really nice. The paneer was tender and light which, I think, helped it absorb the other flavors in the dish. The veg were inherently sweet and accented by the aggressive but not overpowering spices in the dish. Seems that Chef's making the paneer on a regular basis, and I suspect it'll be on the menu soon, if it isn't already.
