MY FAVORITE DISH

[My wife], Alice, is British, and chicken tikka masala is a pretty big part of her routine back home. Sindoore's food is so delicious and authentic, it's become a regular takeout option in our house.

YOU SHOULD TRY

We always order a pretty big spread so we have plenty of options to choose from. Here are some of our favorites: chicken tikka masala, lentil dal, chicken tandoori, vindaloo, chicken kebab, shrimp biryani, chicken kathi roll, bukhara dal, poppadoms with mango chutney and regular naan bread.

WHY I LOVE IT

Sindoore's food is so thoughtful and authentic. Everything is made from scratch with fresh ingredients. It's clear when you eat it that there's so much pride and care that goes into the preparation of every dish. It's so comforting to us. The quality of the food is top-notch, and the value can't be beat.

MY FAVORITE MEMORY

Our first time ordering Sindoore was after a really fantastic holiday we had at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville over Christmas. Alice has been missing her family after being separated from them for the past year, and it was so nice to return from such a lovely trip and enjoy a slice of Alice's home, capping off a wonderful weekend.

TIPS AND TRICKS

The mango chutney is a must-order — great for adding to the spicier bites and for dipping their amazingly crisp poppadoms in!
