Having lived in Richmond almost all my life, one would assume I know a lot of good hidden gem restaurants that reside here. But nope, after my trip to Tandoori Kona, I realized I knew nothing about hidden gems in Richmond. How could I have lived here for so long and not know about this fantastic, authentic, and arguably the best Indian restaurant in Richmond? Trixie, Misu, and I came to Tandoori Kona on a normal weekday night and the place was packed. A guy waiting in line said that he and his buddy waited for 45 minutes already so we almost decided to go somewhere else. Good thing we didn’t.This restaurant is situated on Cambie and No.5 road in a relatively average strip mall.
I always have to order Mango Lassi ($3) when I go to Indian restaurants and this time was no different. :) I could tell their mango lassi was very fresh and the yogurt they used really thicken up the drink to the point where it had the consistency of a milkshake. The only criticism is that all three of us thought it was a tad lukewarm.
We were given Papadums to munch on while waiting for our entrees. It was quite interesting and I liked it despite it constantly getting stuck in my teeth. Maybe don’t munch on this if you are on a first date. Click Here to Read More »
