Myself and a friend visited the Kensington Tandoori on Easter Sunday with very high hopes after an enjoyable previous visit last July. Unfortunately, it would be fair to say that we left thoroughly disappointed. The restaurant was virtually empty when we arrived at around 5.30pm....More

We dined there early in the evening and had the place to ourselves. Quiet, refined service. Yummy curries, rice and vegetables, some off the extensive regular menu, some off the evening's specials. I can see why this restaurant is still in business after 30 years....More

The service is absolutely terrible - we ordered food from this restaurant, and after it arrived in a mess, the manager simply laughed at us over the phone. I'll never give this man business again.

Horrible service tonight. We were pretty much just laughed at after our food arrived completely smashed into pieces. We were VERY regular customers, but I'll not be ordering again after being treated so abysmally.

The dining room at Kennington Tandoori is an elegant space dressed in lemon, plum and chocolate colours. Located on Kennington Road, this south London restaurant draws a local crowd and is always bustling with a lively mix of tables for two, business groups and politicians. The food is the real star of the show here, and the kitchen staff at Kennington Tandoori pay attention to detail - roasting and grinding all their own spices and making up all their own fresh stocks in-house. The menu – which is filled with classics such as the chicken tikka cooked with almonds, pistachios and coconut cream in a saffron sauce – is complimented by a bespoke wine list created by Caspar Auchterlonie.
