Thanks Mach! That may have just helped me make my decision about which ship to sail on next summer. Freedom was a top contender.

I know! When my husband discovered it on Dream, he noticed the only people waiting for food there were ship's officers, so he figured that was a good sign. The food was very good! He'll be very happy to hear they have it on Freedom.

Whereabout on the ship is this Tandoor, and is it Indian food? as in tandoori? Sounds good, and I will be on the Freedom in September.

On the Splendor and the Dream it's Lido Deck aft... starboard side... should be the same on the Magic...

Thanks, this is a pleasant surprise for me, and something I will definitely check out. I love a good curry, or tandoori chicken! I hope this is what they will have there.

You will enjoy it, it's a real tandoori clay oven and they also have tandoori nan bread.

For us it was great the hotter the better

Agree. Dream this past January. We loved the Tandoori Grill at lunch. No lines. Also, it was set up for breakfast -- not Indian -- smaller regular breakfast buffet and no lines.

Hey Mach, thanks for the food porn. Being Indian, I only wish this was available on more of the ships.

You and me both! Well... I'm not Indian... I'm Italian but I LOVE Indian food!

Stitch had never had Indian food before we boarded the Dream... she fell in love with it!

It would be great to see the Tandoor on more ships.

I loved the Tandoori grill on our Splendor cruise, but if you're an Indian food fanatic, you should know that they really aren't cooking on a Tandoor, so "Tandoori-style" would be more accurate — and there are several items on the buffet there that aren't Indian dishes. Everything is absoutely YUMMY though — but WATCH OUT for the garlic dip. Here's an excerpt from my review of our Splendor cruise:

"For lunch, I decided to devote my plate to the Tandoori Grill – and while it’s not the finest Indian cuisine I’ve ever had, it was VERY tasty! In addition to the Indian dishes, the offerings included several Mediterranean choices, including a Greek salad, tzadziki, and hummus. They actually produce a GREAT piece of naan too – but watch out for that garlic dip if you have smooching your sweetie on the agenda for the afternoon! I’d definitely recommend it – and there’s no crowd to deal with. (That applies to both the Tandoori Grill AND smooching your sweetie!)"

"The shops on board are MUCH more limited than what we’ve found on other ships, but we’re not here to buy jewelry, perfume or clothing. That begin said, I really did need a watch and they were having a 40% off sale, so we stopped for a look. Who knew that so many hideous watches existed? Whether you want to spend $10 or $10,000, there’s a phenomenally gaudy watch just waiting to be yours! Yet, there among the ugliest of the ugly, was a handsome, simple, black, square-faced Citizens watch with a simple, black leather strap — and I immediately KNEW I had found the watch of my dreams! Things were made even better when I found out that the watch is eco-friendly and recharges itself in ambient light — and with an affordable $100 price after the discount, I found myself wearing it a few minutes later. The sales guy, Mr. Zero Personality, certainly tried to interest me in a mammoth, solid gold, jewel-encrusted, 87-function chronometer that looked to weigh in excess of 10 pounds, but before he could even grab his calculator to tell me what a remarkable deal I could have, I labeled the watch a “monstrosity” — and he quickly handed me over to his colleague, Mr. LESS-than-Zero Personality, who silently processed my S&S card and seemed a bit put-out with me when I dared to ask what time it was so I could set the watch myself. There must be a sign in the storeroom that that says, “Customers … Just Ignore Them and They’ll Go Away!”

"OH!! Remember the garlic dip from lunch today? Well it’s back – and I don’t mean on the buffet! Apparently I am emitting a noxious cloud of tear-inducing, vampire-repelling garlic vapor that’s easily detectable from more than a yard away. Linda brought it to my attention … AGAIN! Mind you, I’ve brushed my teeth several times, scoured my tongue until it’s just RAW and even scrubbed my entire body in a combination of every scented body gel, soap and shampoo in our stateroom — but it’s not made a bit of difference. So, with a little huffiness of righteous indignation, I popped over to the shops and bought a tin of Altoids (you know, the “curiously-strong” mints that “freshen your breath while your head explodes”) and promptly chomped down a couple of dozen of them. Linda told me that the mints just “took the edge off” but did make it tolerable to be around me. Now that I think about it, I wonder if the sales clerks back at the watch table were just reacting to the garlic? Hmmmm …. "
