Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

Well today on MTC I am introducing or unveiling, if you will, a little ol’ gem in this city of ours which many are not aware of. This place is like the office on a Sunday… most of the time; you’re the only one there. Unlike the office on a Sunday however, this place is where you wanna be!

Royal Tandoori on Unley Road is cheap. As cheap as a date who doesn’t offer to pay for your coffee. This place is perfect for a Sunday night hangover cure when you look inside your bag and say ‘please let there be money in here’ only to discover that yes, you did buy that last round of shots and no, you didn’t leave with any money-slash-dignity.

Step 1: Scrape up those gold coins in the bottom of your bag
Step 2: Enjoy the feast!

The highlight on the menu for me is their lamb korma. I hate to sound like a cheap advertisement but the lamb is just melt-in-your-mouth tender. You can pay $25 for more food than Homer Simpson could eat. The service doesn’t come with any bells-or-whistles AKA friendly banter or menu item recommendations, but I’m not there to make friends. At that price, a smile is enough for me!

The food comes out quick and like watching Dirty Dancing for the 42nd time, it never disappoints. Johnny Castle, you are my fictional sole mate. *lusty-sigh*

My one minor moan: their naan could be a tad more doughy and delicious. But hey, I rarely shower on Sundays. Who am I to judge? No-ones perfect!

Now you come back now ya hear?

Until next time… Stay Rad-elaide.
