The finest Indian restaurant in Al Ain, Tanjore offers a selection of authentic Indian cuisine tailored in traditional tandoori clay ovens. Tanjore specializes in tandoori and northern Indian food. The dark wood furnishing with alcove seating, muted lantern lighting and colorful wall hangings all come together to give a relaxed feel. Service is impeccable and you’ll leave feeling as important as a Moghul emperor, but without being too fussed over. Tanjore offers decent food in a colorful, rustic setting at the Danat hotel. The decor here mixes North India with a hint of Arabic.

I was lucky enough to try this place on my all inclusive package deal from Danat Al Ain (click for hotel review) Resort stay.

We were served Condiments from the house and it was Papad with Chutneys and Sauces all in house.


From the starters me and my hubby tried the Palak aur Anjeer Kebab, pan grilled spinach and potato patties with figs and cashew served with mint chutney. It was so very delicious, soft from inside and crisp from outside.

We tried the Murgh ki Yakhini Shorba, chicken broth delicately flavored with aromatic herbs and spices incorporated with julienne chicken. This tasted so delicious, refreshing and the best shorba I have ever tasted.

Here comes our drinks, Virgin Mojito and Red Apple Sangria.


From the Clay Oven section we tried the Amritsari Talli Machi, hammour fillet cooked with hammous flour. This was so very delicious, the fish marinated and fried perfectly and the batter was all very crispy and divine.

Murgh Tandoori, the ”King of Kebabs” marinated in traditional red yogurt with saffron imbue. This was the hit from the show, the chicken all perfectly marinated and grilled and the spices infused till the last bite.

From the mains we tried the Mahi Season,fillet of fish with mustard seed paste, cooked on dum served with garnish of fresh coriander & juliene of ginger soaked in lemon juice. This was the hit of the show and best goes with any type of rice.

Mahi Season

Bhindi Do Pyaza, fresh Okras gently cooked with onions, tomatoes and cumin seeds.


From the rice we ordered Chawal Ki Pasand done with green peace. Look at my delicacies on the table with soft Garlic Naan’s all fresh, hot and delicious.
