Cheshunt Tandoori was opened in 1986 - the same year its present owner, Koyes, was born. Four years ago, the restaurant was handed over from his father, a successful restaurateur for 50 years, to Koyes, who set about imbuing the restaurant with his own personal touch. With a steady supply of diners and takeaway orders keeping the chefs busy, there's no doubt that the local community support the refreshed Cheshunt Tandoori just as much as they did before. The venue boasts a large glass frontage, a cosy 34-seat interior and soft light glowing from the ceiling. Upon entry, we were greeted by friendly, attentive staff and Koyes himself. The menu is extensive, catering for customers who seek traditional Indian food as well as those with a more contemporary taste. Dishes can be tailored to each individual's preference; mains include a variety of options, such as prawns, king prawns, vegetables, chicken, lamb or fish, in addition to diners also being in control of how spicy they want their curry. For starters, I ordered the chicken momo: shredded spicy chicken wrapped in an Indian bread. Sandra, my dining partner, went for the chilli paneer; Indian cheese glazed in a chilli sauce, which lived up to its description on the menu as a 'spicy-yummy' dish. For our mains, we both chose speciality dishes. I picked the vegetable Lizzy, which was coated in a rich gravy of Kashmiri herbs and chickpeas. Sandra selected the chicken tikka delight - a creamy dish with massala spices and a splash of red wine. I had never come across this before in a curry but it worked so well. To accompany the main course we had pilau rice, aloo gobi and a light and fluffy naan bread. The meal was beautifully presented and tasted superb. The herbs and spices were carefully balanced. Following in his father's footsteps, Koyes has created a menu offering so much more than many Indian restaurants, which is no doubt why Cheshunt Tandoori has so many fans - including us
