Quick Bite

Bukhara Tandoori Grill

Bukhara Tandoori Grill in Burlington has just 22 seats, but its Indian curries and chicken dishes cooked in the tandoor oven are big in flavor and value.

Bukhara Tandoori Grill
125 Route 130 South,
Burlington
609-526-5047

Hours: Daily, 11 am-10 pm

Price: $

Style: A utilitarian storefront on Burlington’s main drag, with 22 seats, serving Indian food and some Greek and American dishes.

Don’t Miss: The thick, tangy-sweet mango lassi (16-ounce cup, $4). Ask for the rice and curry combo (it’s not on the menu). The server behind the counter may offer a taste if you’re unsure whether to go with the goat or the chicken curry in the $9.99 platter. The namesake tandoor oven produces a variety of chicken dishes. Naan bread ($1.50) comes out hot and pillowy, and its lack of seasoning makes it ideal for mopping up rich Indian sauces.

Heads Up: The menu transliterates dish names but doesn’t explain them. Ask your server or point to a picture. The restaurant accepts credit cards for orders over $10, but accepts tips only in cash.

The Scoop: Bukhara serves Halal lamb, beef and chicken. The menu includes hamburgers and chicken burgers ($5); lamb and chicken gyros ($5); and whole pizzas with cheese, chicken, veggie, kebab and other toppings ($7.99-$8.99).
