Nandini Indian Cuisine

You won’t come to Nandini Indian Cuisine for its sleek ambiance or trendy menu. You’ll come to this modest Tempe restaurant for its Punjabi-inflected menu brimming with reliably good tandoori-style dishes, including a wonderfully smoky tandoori chicken and juicy, marinated lamb boti kebabs. You’ll also find a slew of creamy, buttery curries, including a spicy, gravy-like molai kofta and a nutty matar paneer. If you need a break from ghee-heavy curries, there’s vindaloo, a traditional western Indian curry known for its blisteringly hot tomato-and-chile sauce. You can have it with your choice of protein, including a shrimp rendition that is garlicky and intensely spicy.
