Ciao Bella Italia, Namaste My Ultimate Tandoori

It has happened! San Leandro has finally gotten an Indian restaurant. We’ve hoped for it, begged for it, and it’s finally here. Alas, I haven’t been there yet, so I don’t know how good it is, but it’s here.
My Ultimate Tandoori has opened in the space previously occupied by La Bella Italia. The owners of La Bella Italia are themselves Indian (from the Punjab, I’d guess, as they are Sikh) – but their true love is Italian food. Alas, La Bella Italia was not very successful in its current location, I rarely saw anyone there, so they seem to finally give in and give San Leandro what it really needs: an Indian restaurant. They’ll continue serving Italian food, however. We had desert there last month, and it was quite good, so they’ll hopefully keep that.
As for the new menu, it includes your usual North Indian dishes (they have chicken tikka masala and lamb korma, my favorites), but a bunch of others as well. Indeed, I wonder if their menu is not too ambitious. They have a daily lunch buffet for $7 (11 AM – 3 PM).
I hope I’ll get to go this week – I’ll let you know what I think.

  1. ooh sounds exciting, I look forward to hearing how it is!

  2. I have now visited My Ultimate Tandoori. My review is at http://www.marga.org/food/blog/2009/07/my_ultimate_tandoori_san_leand.html
    I thought that the restaurant was good, but not great. I like Favorite India better. I’d go again, but not as a destination.
