Worst Indian I've ever had

A girlfriend and I went here, and I ordered a Lamb Tikka Masala; she ordered Chicken Tikka Masala. Both dishes tasted exactly the same, that is to say like Cambell's Tomato Soup with chunks of meat. Yes I'm aware that Tikka Masala isn't exactly the most authentic, but I figured it was a safe choice in a restaurant I've never been to. How wrong I was. The prices were definitely not worth something I can buy in a store in a can for a few dollars. Also they had beef on the menu. An Indian restaurant had beef on the menu. Are they trying to be ironic or what?
