Following on the success of Tranna Silver Lakes, Wonderboom opened in October 2008 much to the delight of the northern suburbs residents of Pretoria. Offering both indoor and outside seating Tranna caters for all weathers and all tastes, from a 3 course meal with wine to your favourite takeaway.
Tranna is not a traditional Indian Restaurant in terms of décor. There are no ornately decorated elephants, heavily jewelled gold ornaments, or bright outrageous colours - symbols which one has come to associate with Indian cuisine! Here you will find a fresh, more contemporary approach. Muted tones abound even in the abstract murals and artwork that decorate the interior. However, the overall effect is both soothing and pleasing, and provides a tranquil background in which to enjoy this immensely appealing cuisine.
Focusing on North Indian dishes, there is any endless variety of combinations from which to choose – Tandoori, Breyani, lamb/beef/chicken/prawn Curries, as well as a host of vegetarian dishes to tempt the palate. If bread is your weakness, then the Naan bread is for you. Besides being available in several varieties with different toppings and fillings, the Naan bread comes in a satisfyingly large portion!
A few recommendations on the menu: An excellent way to get the taste buds working is to share a platter of assorted (vegetable, mince, chicken) crispy samoosas, or better still the mixed Tandoori platters for 2 or 4 people. Main course options include chicken dishes a plenty, from the well known Tikka Masala to the Chicken Do Peeaza with its skilful blend of spices, chicken, onion and green peppers.
