INDIAN TANDOOR

Cuisine: Indian

The owners of this family-friendly restaurant hail from Delhi and, as well as serving authentic Northern Indian cuisine, they pay particular attention to good service. A recent sandy-coloured paint job has freshened up the interior and the menu, divided into dishes cooked in the tandoor and curries, seems fresher for it. From the oven, try marinated fish tikka $14.90 — it’s vibrant red but still relatively mild. Curries span the favourites to the unfamiliar, such as kadai gosht, lamb curry cooked in a wok-style kadai $16.90. To try it all, go for a Royal Banquet $29.90, which offers your choice of three entrees and three mains. A top vegetarian option is that great Indian classic, malai kofta, cheese and potato dumplings in a sensational white curry with peanuts to give a delicate crunchy texture $15.90.

ROYAL SWEETS CAFE

Cuisine: Indian,Vegan/Vegetarian,Indian

What’s in a name? More than the name names, it seems. Sweets are only part of the story at this vegetarian Indian diner, situated in its own little corner of Blacktown’s Asian shopping district. The menu also includes Punjabi curries and fried snacks: samosas $2, and bhajis $3.50 and pakoras $3.50 (3 pieces). Lovely curries to try are shahi paneer with soft cubes of housemade Indian cheese, mild and creamy, flavoured with tomato and cardamom $10.90; saag of spinach and cottage cheese $12.90; or cholay bhature, a chickpea curry served with deep-fried bread $7.90. Menthi paratha $2.90 is a layered wholemeal bread with fenugreek leaves, one of the many choices of naan that are essential accompaniments. A thali comprising a vegetable curry, dhal, bread, rice, pickle, yoghurt and a sweet of the day is excellent value at $12.90. There is another Royal Sweets in Wentworthville.
