Dear Mr. Richardson, Finally I get a chance to thank you for your kind review. Over the last 36 years of our operation at The Tandoor, the distinction of flavours between different menu items has always been our prime objective. Therefore instead of packing the...More

The Tandoor is close to our house and we 'disovered' it as we were searching for good, authentic Indian food. The atmosphere in the restaurant is not great, but the food more than make up for it. And the service is fantastic. We now buy...More

The Tandoor Indian restaurant is one of those restaurants you want to keep a secret, but you can't because it's that good. Banny, the host always looks after us and surprises us with new inventive dishes. We have tried almost every dish,
