In Indian culture, all celebrations occur around food. Food, celebration, well-being, closeness to the land and its many crops, and happiness are all tied together. Since we endeavor to represent to our community the very best of Indian culture at Sizzling Tandoor, we strive to bring the richness of this culture to you when you sit at our tables.
India, the land of the enchanted, with its varied cultural practices, is tied by the invisible commonality of its exotic cuisine. It is celebrated for the variety of its dishes based on the artful and intelligent combination of the spices developed over many centuries.
Here at the New Sizzling Tandoor, the chef endeavors to create and provide our guests the delight of authentic cuisine from the famous tandoor. The huge clay oven fueled to intense heat by the mesquite charcoal came to India by way of ancient Persia. At one time tandoor (food prepared in the tandoor) was common in the Northern regions of India, but its popularity has brought this delicacy into every part of India and lately to the Western world…and now to Sonoma County.
