Laguna pride themselves on delivering authentic Indian classics and use the traditional tandoor clay oven fuelled by charcoal to cook a wide range of meats and breads. Tony prefers to use the clay oven opposed to more modern gas and electric fired versions as the flavours intensify when cooked slowly over the charcoal. No curry paste is used at The Laguna, instead, combinations of spices are ground to order to ensure that every dish is flavourful and as authentic as possible. You can expect to find everything from the popular curries such as Rogan Josh, Korma and Bhuna, to more speciality dishes for the adventurous diner such as Shahjehani chicken prepared with fruits and herbs, and the Laguna Special with tandoor chicken cooked in oriental spices with chopped tomatoes.
