This small Indian restaurant in trendy Kensington offers fine and spicy dining at reasonable prices. The menu features classic Indian dishes such as butter chicken, vindaloo, mulligatawny soup, and vegetable korma. Their tandoori oven turns out baked specialties like chicken tikka and tandoori prawns; vegetarians will enjoy their list of meatless delights. The decor is subdued and intimate with linens on the tables, warm murals on the walls and gently spinning fans that do more to relax the diner than actually cool the room. There is a daily lunch buffet.
First there was no-one to sit me down. Finally someone arrived and I ordered mango lassi.
Then I loaded my lunch plate and galloped back to my table, expecting delicious feast. Pakoras were very good. Then I went on to dal - it was ok, but having my dal mainly in West Bengal and at home, I was not prepared for it to be so hot. The beef curry was nothing special and butter chicken was sickly sweet, on the other hand mango lassi was not sweet enough and very thin. Tandoori chicken was hard as a shoe sole and almost inedible, so was the naan (and it was also burnt a bit), but I have to say that raita was pretty cool, different from everything I have eaten before. I was hoping that kheer will save the day, as I could not imagine that you can go wrong with it. But no, I was wrong. Only 1/2 of rice was cooked properly, no nuts or raisins were in it, and a piece of cardamom got between my teeth. Probably the best part of my meal was watermelon. Not cooked.
I have to add that the service was pretty pathetic, too - zero smile, zero interest in a client.
That was my worst spent money in the past 6 months, I think.

We went there to celebrate my friends birthday. They had jus closed down for reno and opened again. The low lights and elegant decor really pleased the eyes. We were served by 2 waiters and it was really confusing cause one of them had a twin working with him as well.
we orderred mutton bhuna, mutton vindaloo, chicken coconut currym, prawn coconut, prawn korma.
rice portions were really small.
Nanns were good but not too much to brag about. I loved the food overall even though it was a bit pricey.
what dissapointed me was the dessert. I ordered
Rasmalai ( a milky sweet ) for 5 $ they offeren a teespoon full of milk and a small pience of rasmalai. This was a total rip off.
We had to send handsignals and coughs to get the attention of waiters. short staffed on a busy thursday night.
This small restaurant is quite beautiful inside with wall murals and nice colours. The quiet atmosphere is relaxing and refreshing compared to most larger restaurants. The service is excellent and subdued and a perfect place for a date. No embarrassing, obnoxious servers here. The food is outstanding and varied. The servers are considerate about one the most common concern of people venturing into East Indian cuisine for the first time - will the food be too spicy! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. It's one of Calgary's best.
Fantastic quality and unbeatable price, highly reccomended. Take out buffet for 9$!! I challenge you to find a better meal for that price. I believe the buffet is 12$ to eat at the restaurant, well worth it I assure you.
My friends and I *love* the Tandoori Hut and have take out butter chicken on a monthly basis... or more recently, basically every week! I'm addicted. It isn't cheap eats, but it is still definitely worth it.
Food is always phenomenal, Butter Chicken and Lamb Korma are favorites of ours. Definitly the best East Indian restaurant in Calgary and not a bad price either. Check the ENTERTAINMENT book for a two for one entree coupon.
