On Nelson Place at the tip of the Williamstown peninsula, Sangam Tandoori brings the finest in Indian cuisine to the curry enthusiasts of Melbourne, with a varied menu and their eponymous clay oven. It will come as no surprise to find out that meat is king here, with the tandoor taking pride of place, but there is also an extensive selection of vegetarian and vegan options to ensure that all diners are well catered for.
With a name like Sangam Tandoori, one can imagine where the strength of this curry joint lies. Their menu boasts a huge array of chicken, lamb, fish and veggies straight out of the tandoori, accompanied by everyone’s favourite Indian food delivery method, the fresh naan. Melbourne has a fair number of tandoori ovens, but few places know their way around a clay oven like the folk down at Sangam, so you can be sure of a feast for the whole family if you make your way out to Williamstown for an evening feed.
Don’t be fooled by the tandoor alone, though – as Sangam Tandoori have the full repertoire of curries and starters to match everything that the oven has to offer. Melbourne’s curry cognoscenti flock down to Nelson’s Place in Williamstown for their fix of rogan josh, vindaloo, korma and all the traditional Indian favourites. Don’t forget to add a lassi to your meal for that extra taste of India, or even better, go for an after-meal palate cleanser with a masala tea, lightly fragranced with traditional spices such as cumin and cardamom.
We went for Christmas Eve and it was nice and quiet. Great service and the food was fabulous! If you enjoy Indian cuisine. Definitely try this one!
Party of six celebrating an 11year olds birthday - what a treat! The service was great - efficient and friendly. They were also very helpful as one of the party is severely allergic to chickpeas - it wasn't a problem as they steered her with the menu. The food was beautiful! We were the last to leave and we were not hurried or rushed out the door. It worked out to be about $25 per head which included 8 alcoholic beverages. Value for money with a friendly atmosphere - all on our doorstep. Now that Ive tried it, I will be back.
Delicious food and excellent table service! Great to have found another place to have a wonderful family meal. Highly recommended! Would visit again and again!
