About Tanjore

South Indian food in Southside restaurant

If chicken tikka masala represents the limits of your experience of Indian cuisine then this South Indian restaurant on Clerk Street will be an eye-opener. You won’t find lamb rogan josh here but you will find stuffed dosa crepes; savoury pancakes with fragrant chutneys and aromatic meat and fish curries. Who needs yet another balti when you can tuck into crab biriyani with aubergine tamarind curry? Seafood fans and vegetarians will be especially taken with Tanjore.
