Tandoori Kabob & Grill opens at Sacramento Center
The long-awaited Tandoori Kabob & Grill restaurant, located at Sacramento Center in the Woodlawn section of Alexandria, opened Feb. 3. The family-owned restaurant offers a variety of fresh, made-to-order meals, including Tandoor and grill specials, combination meat platters, curry, rice, vegetables, gyros, and bread, as well as appetizers, desserts and beverages.
Tandoori Kabob’s general manager Khairul Khan said he began building out the nearly 3,000-square-foot space at the start of the pandemic and that he essentially had to start from scratch — installing flooring, the ceiling and acquiring all the furniture. One unexpected novelty to the restaurant is a sliding door near the kitchen that leads to a large private banquet hall seating up to 100 people. Rentable for parties, weddings and other special occasions, the facility has its own private front entrance and a small stage.
Khan is no stranger to the hospitality industry as he’s worked for over 30 years for Marriott. He continues to work full-time there but plans to stop by the restaurant regularly, where his wife helps run the day-to-day operations.
Tandoori Kabob & Grill, located at 8792 Sacramento Drive, is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Online ordering and food delivery are available.
