Not a great setting to start - bright lighting, and very loud weird music. The service wasn't great the waitresses were not particularly attentive (particularly given there were 4 other people in the restaurant) but nice enough when they did check in with us. The food was fine but nothing special. I think it was quite overpriced though!! And the... More

Two curries bought - Chicken Kadai & Lamb Rogan Josh. Both curries exactly the same but one had chicken in and one had lamb in. Neither were Rogan Josh and neither were Kadai. Naan breads? The smallest naan breads known to humanity. And they arent naan breads either. More like roti's. Pillau rice with potatoes cut in half in? Far... More

So we took our party of 17 here. What a mistake, the veggie peoples food came, the meat eaters waited 30 mins after this to receive their food. A veggie was give a chicken dish and didn't realise after eating. We asked the waitress to check, she came back saying it's veggie! And then denied going to check. The chef... More

Tried to order takeaway via a third party site they are listed on, which gave hours and indicated they were open. Failed for some technical reason. Attempted to walk over and just order, found the sign said open but only rude staff inside. Sign said open, almost and hour till closing and I got little in terms of redirection, explanation,...

Moved from Melb to Cairns and tried many Indian Restaurants that would match the high standards in Melb. After many disappointments found Tandoori Nights, truly the best in Cairns. Love the butter chicken!

My girlfriend and went to Tandoori Nights during our visit it Cairns. We ordered our old favourites (Onion Bahjis, Paneer Tikka Masala) and the food was really nice. The staff were friendly and very accommodating when it came to any additional requests. The only thing that we didn't enjoy was the loud club/ techno music blasting out of the speakers... More

We were quite wary of this place since a few TripAdvisor.and Zomato reviews were quite critical. We ordered Dal(superb) and paneer ( Decent ). It's run by a couple from Punjab who manage everything themselves. It's important to appreciate the constraints under which they operate and the food can't exactly be as good as the best restaurants back home

Go to Cairns every year and the last 3 trips we have gone to Tandoori Nights as meals are always good. Location, atmosphere, service and prices are all good. My wife ordered the Chicken Mango Curry and exclaimed " I've on a winner". My goat curry was also excellent - we ordered 8 out of 10 for spice level which... More

The food there was horrible it made puke and not want to eat Indian food ever again. First the Atmosphere was trash. It felt more like a playground than an Indian Restaurant there were kids playing in front of the door and playing basketball inside. Second was the food, overall it was as bad watermelon and chili sauce. Their food... More
