We arrived back to this restaurant after a year away and the food was absolutely amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and although the decor is still dated it adds to the ambience of this famous restaurant which has been on the high street for over thirty years. Can't wait to visit again.

The food was very good, good portion sizes and plenty of chicken in the meat dishes. The staff were very helpful and service was good. Particularly liked the finishing touches like the baileys and chocolate at the end. The only thing that lets it down is the decoration is a bit dated.

Great little place - no frills interior but attentive service and well cooked tasty dishes at reasonable prices. Large menu enabling all sorts of combinations. Starters are often a good indicator of the quality of the meal - in this case the poppadums with a generous pickle tray and good portion of onion bhajis did not disappoint.

Went in early evening, was immediately seated and served nice fresh popadoms with good dips. Starter was ok, chicken bhuna a bit flat and colleagues kharai looked nearly identical to my bhuna, with very little heat to it. Naan nice and fresh. Took a long time to get the bill and pay, although the glass of Bailey's with the bill... More

The portion size is possible a downer? Was our first visit and we ordered starters too. I like to try variety - the two course added up to enough for four and www ere two in number (Though with one being a student; this should have resolved itself?) Tai is a long established restaurant and has mixed reviews. It has,... More

My daughter rang The Royal Tandori earlier in the week to ask if they were open lunchtimes, was told they were open between 12-2. Got there Saturday 12.20 and it was closed!! Rang both their numbers, nobody answered. Bad karma! Had a good meal in Nandos though.
