Food cooked in a tandoori oven retains intense flavor and features a moist and succulent texture. The marinades and process used to prepare Lahore Karahi’s tandoori dishes reflect this delicious method of cooking that compliments chicken, lamb or fish and incorporates traditional Indian spices. Curry dishes are another regional specialty prepared with a variety of ingredients that may feature saffron, tomatoes and yogurt or cream.
Each dish is made to order, and incorporates fresh seasonal vegetables and individual preparation. Regular customers rave about the chicken tikka masala and lamb biryanis, prepared with a touch of spice that enhances the exotic flavor of the dish. A wide array of vegetarian dishes that feature ingredients such as spinach, eggplant, cauliflower, lentils and rice are combined with a flavorful sauce that provides a filling meal. Special versions of naan bread are individually prepared in the kitchen, and may feature garlic, sesame, onion or whole wheat.
Another unique aspect that diners will find at Lahore Karahi is the complimentary chai tea served along with water at each table. The fragrant combination of spices found with Indian food is best enjoyed with a refreshing drink to help clean the palette.
