    As generic as the name may sound, Indian Kitchen is a pretty good place to have some tandoori chicken. This clean and fairly modern looking place offers quite an extensive array of Indian cuisine, one of which includes the ever so flavourful tandoori chicken. It comes in a pretty generous serving, with the whole chicken being nicely chopped and portioned. Tender on the inside, crisp on the outside - Indian Kitchen's tandoori chicken is definitely well worth the try.
