turned out that it was pretty good for S$9.50. i can have this again.

char kuay teow

char kuay teow

char kuay teow is always good here, S$7.20 but a large plate. the wok hae is legendary, very good here!

we ordered extra “hum” (cockles). they were very cooked, safely cooked, so more or less cockles didn’t feel much different.

tandoori chicken

tandoori chicken

tandoori chicken, very average for me. quite good marinade flavours i guess.

not my favourite for standalone dish, but don’t mind it if come with other curries.

garlic naan

naan was tasty but again eating dry w/o dhal or curries not my preference.

cheng teng

wife & daughter had the cheng teng.

S$19pax Indian Lunch Buffet @ Yantra at Tanglin Mall on 10Jun2013

chick pea curry

See also my Yantra Update on 1.8.2013.

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. 🙂

green chicken curry

green chicken curry

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.

some mixed vege

the vegetarian dishes were great. this mixed vege.

aloo gobi (cauliflower) & potatoes

aloo gobi (cauliflower) & potatoes

& also the potatoes aloo gobi. 🙂

prawn curry

I liked this prawn curry & had a few helpings. It went well with the garlic naans.

dal

as did the other curries & dal. 🙂

paneer tikka

paneer tikka

the paneer tikka was the usual tofu texture but not so flavourful.

some squash? & zucchini

some squash? & zucchini

not quite sure what this was, like cucumbers with some squash?

mango pickles etc

mango pickles etc

the mango pickles was nice. 🙂

my plateful of eats

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.

dessert

dessert

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. 🙂
