    Two Fat Indians

    Two Fat Indians brings to you these traditional cooking styles to create the finest northern Indian cuisine you will ever taste. We have resisted the temptation of switching to today's more convenient gas tandoor and stayed true to the traditional charcoal ovens. We feel that it delivers a unique smoky flavour that gas tandoors cannot achieve. Using this approach, combined with quality ingredients in all our preparations, we are sure you will be able to taste the twofatindians difference. You will leave eating more than you should!
