Out in Sunnyvale, California, a very small hole-in-the-wall restaurant can be found that has something that you may never expect to come from a restaurant. Tasty Subs & Pizza is a restaurant that has calzones, pizzas and subs but the odd component is that they offer Indian food. When you think Indian food, you think of spice but they have a sign that they do Indian pizza as a specialty. When you first get there, the parking lot gets filled easily since there is other food places and a 24 Hour fitness, but when you get a parking and find the spot, just come on in.
When walking in the place, you see a counter that has two stations that you can order calzones and pizza and the other counter is for subs. With the subs, you can order it as a 6 inch or a 9 inch and has the offer of making it into a combo that gives chips and a drink. Once you order your food, they give you a number so you can go find a table to sit at and eat.They have a bar in the back with televisions on to sports. They are quick to make the food as they bring the food to your table. The noise within the restaurant is between moderate to noisy and also can get very packed, but that shows of how good the food since people keep coming.
The Chicken Tandoori pizza has the same ingredients as the sandwich but it's a pizza and had some jalapeños and pineapple that gave the pizza a slight sweet to then kick with a great and manageable spice. The people in this restaurant are just amazing and the Indian components do taste as authentic as Indian can get but is mixed in a fusion by adding Indian foods in a sandwich, calzones and pizzas. They also offer tri-tip and other styled sandwiches, calzones and pizzas that are equally as good as the Indian ones, so please try out the menu and enjoy the great eat.
Getting the Chicken Tandoori sandwich and pizza was a great combo to have. Since you can customize the bread for the sandwich, I choose sourdough and that made the sandwich a lot crunchier. The sandwich had onions, cilantro and chicken tandoori that the spice crept up slowly to give a kick of spice that is enjoyable to the pallet.
