The secret to the tandoori prawns is the tandoor, a traditional earthen clay pot heated with wood charcoal. The meats and seafood are marinated overnight in a spiced herbed yogurt then baked in the tandoor on skewers, making them incredibly tender. The prawns and meat are then served on a sizzling platter with vegetables. Delivery available. Reservations recommended. Lunch Monday through Friday, dinner daily, brunch Saturday and Sunday. Credit cards and checks. $$

For Indian cuisine in the suburbs, check out Peacock's lunch buffet, with a menu of offerings that changes daily.

Reservations accepted. Lunch and dinner Wednesday through Monday. Credit cards. $$

115 University Place 299-1926
If you read this whole issue (we double-dare you!) you will not find another restaurant that boasts a menu of more than 80 selections -- half of which are vegetarian. Welcome to Tandoori Chicken, a friendly Indian restaurant in the CBD. The management invites you to try the palak paneer, a spinach and cheese vegetarian dish. Or, try the chicken tikka masala, a boneless chicken in spicy cream tomato sauce. The lunch buffet is still $8.99. No reservations. Lunch Monday through Saturday, dinner daily. Credit cards. $$
