For alfresco waterside dining, head to Tandoori Express in Port Louis. This Indian restaurant has a large outdoor seating area covered by umbrellas that overlooks the port. As you watch ships go by, indulge in such classic dishes as chicken tikka masala, biryani, and mutter paneer. There’s South Indian cuisine as well, including uttappam (similar to a savory pancake) with a variety of fillings to choose from. Every day of the week also has a special set menu that you can order from. And if you’re in a hurry, Tandoori Express lives up to its name with quick takeaway thalis, a selection of dishes that comes with naan, rice, pickles, and salad.
