Another fab meal tonight. This place is a must if you're after a decent curry. A special set meal is available every night so excellent value for money as well. Thank you x

We have visited this restaurant many times, and also regularly get takeaways. The food is consistently of a high standard, as is the friendly service. We love eating in the booths, which make for an intimate atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended!

Takdir can be translated to mean 'luck' or 'destiny'. This Indian restaurant has been running successfully under the same ownership since 1979. Mamzy and Suff have taken over from their father of the day to day running of the business. With them around they make it a very calm, easy and relaxed atmosphere to be in. They do whatever they can to make your experience memorable and make you feel like... your at home away from home. Takdir is perfectly situated on East Parade, as it looks out onto the sea and after a windswept walk, or even drive along the seafront it can be quite inviting.
