Burgers meet biryani at Tamber's Indian diner


March 08, 2007|By Karen Nitkin | Karen Nitkin,special to the sun

One of the more unusual restaurants in Baltimore is Tamber's, a '50s-style diner that improbably serves Indian food alongside the burgers and milkshakes. The combination must work, because Tamber's has been sending out this mixed cultural message for more than 15 years.

Tamber's was already a local landmark, known as Tamber's Nifty Fifties Diner, when it was acquired by Petro Kumar in 1991. Kumar kept the name, but soon began adding vindaloos, biryanis and other Indian dishes to the menu.
