my turn to buy lunch with 2 friends I started some business together in 2000. seems like yesterday. 🙂
Yantra @ Tanglin has a S$19pax lunch buffet monday to thursday (S$25pax friday-sunday), I like the nice, classy ambience, and I don’t have too many kakis for Indian food – so we decided to go there. 🙂
food was good flavour-wise, the spread was small but ok really except it lacked a lamb dish like rogan gosht, & a tandoori chicken, and (say) a bharta (eggplant).
the chick pea curry was good with the naans, like all the sauce curries & the dal. 🙂
I guessed the buffet was a vegetarian paradise. this green curry murgh & another chicken dish were the only meats (there was a fish tikka & great curry prawns though). I don’t really like both the chicken dishes. a butter chicken (murgh makhani) would be perfect or a tandoori whether whole chicken or tikka.
the vegetarian dishes were great. this mixed vege.
& also the potatoes aloo gobi. 🙂
I liked this prawn curry & had a few helpings. It went well with the garlic naans.
as did the other curries & dal. 🙂
the paneer tikka was the usual tofu texture but not so flavourful.
not quite sure what this was, like cucumbers with some squash?
the mango pickles was nice. 🙂
did not take a photo of the fish tikka. it’s next to the prawn & potatoes in the above photo – my plate full of food. it was quite good. 🙂 the green chicken & another anemic looking chicken were at the left.
Indian dessert doesn’t work for me. anyhow I am not a dessert person so I did not try any.
overall the food was good, not pricy & ambience was excellent. but somewhat lacking “shiok” factor for me. must go find another Indian food fix. 🙂
