|Formerly the home of a Korean restaurant and karaoke lounge, this building will become the new Casa Grande Bar & Grill.|
The menu will feature food from Central America, including Mexico and El Salvador, says co-owner Amjad Khanzada, who is also a co-owner of Tandoori Nights, also listed at 7137 Little River Turnpike. Lambros Goldsmith is between the two restaurants.
Tandoori Nights has gone through a lot of changes since it opened in summer 2017. It started out serving a mix of Indian, Mexican, Chinese, and Nepali food. It then focused on only Indian and Mexican food.
Now, it’s a Peruvian and Bolivian restaurant, offering such entrees as lomo saltado, chaufa de pollo, and silpancho. Khanzada, who also has a Tandoori restaurant in Fairfax with an Indian menu, believes South American cuisine is a better fit for Annandale.
Despite the fact that Tandoori Nights no longer serves Indian food, he has no immediate plans to change its name.
