INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 26, 2008 43 DINING www.innerwestweekly.com.au Spicing up cold winter nights NAME: Five Dock Tandoori House WHERE: 175 First Ave, Five Dock PHONE: 9712 7391 OPEN: For dinner from 5pm 'til late, closed Mondays PROFILE: Xavier Toby ..........................................................

''ALL our sauces and spices are created from scratch, on the premises, to ensure a unique taste,'' Five Dock Tandoori House chef and owner Hari Chauhan says. An open fireplace warms the interior during winter. Five Dock Tandoori House is one of the few restaurants to boast such a feature, Mr Chauhan adds. The restaurant is run with the help of his wife, Pushpa, and together they've been providing a level of food and service that's had the crowds getting bigger and bigger since the restaurant opened two years ago. Mr Chauhan said the best-loved dishes were honey pepper prawn and masala barramundi, while -- as with most Indian restaurants -- butter chicken was also extremely popular. ''Tandoori is one of our specialties, so it is also very popular,'' he said. Mr Chauhan has been in Australia 12 years, previously working as a chef in Orange and Bathurst. Before that he honed his craft at the Intercontinental Hotel in New Delhi and the Savoy in Moscow, which is located next to The Kremlin. The restaurant holds a Bollywood movie night on the last Sunday of every month. Guests arrive at 6pm and are served a mixed entree, then the film begins at 6.30pm. At 8pm there is a break for dinner, then the remainder of the film, followed by dessert at 9pm. It costs $38 per person, $20 for those under 12, and market-fresh seafood is included so it is important to book in advance. The restaurant also provides catering for all occasions. We were lucky enough to be treated to dinner during our visit, and began with the sizzling mixed platter that featured many delectable morsels, including a lamb cutlet, seekh kebab, chicken tikka and vegetable pakora. As a main we enjoyed the palak paneer, a mild curry of spinach with curd cheese, and the butter chicken. Both tasted great without being too heavy. We also shared a peshwari naan -- bread stuffed with dried fruit and cashew nuts that was a nice mix of sweet and savoury. 2031167K 175 First Avenue Five Dock P: 9712 7391 M: 0402 968 475 E: firstname.lastname@example.org Five Dock Tandoori House Delicious Authentic INDIAN CUISINE made from herbs and spices ground on premises BOLLYWOOD NIGHT last Sunday of every month Every Tuesday and Wednesday Mention this ad to buy one entree and get the second one for half price at equal value Special functi and out door catering available ookings ssential 2005359k only the finest pizza, pasta & gelato Shop 9, Cross Street Breakfast Point T: 8765 0102 Vic, Franca & Blake 2003736K IWW unique cuisine on the bay Prince Edward Park, Phillips Street, Cabarita 9743 2225 www.angelosonthebay.com.au Superbly located, Angelo's on the Bay boasts a selection of innovative and contemporary seafood cuisine prepared by Chef Suna McKay.
