We usually love a takeaway from Royal Tandoori and have made this our ‘Indian takeaway place’. Unfortunately this evening our £40 takeaway arrived cold. Called to report the situation and was told they would ‘make a note’. So I am now left re-heating it all...in the microwave. Bit upset by the response. Won’t be ordering from here again now. Too much of an expensive risk to take. Shame as the food is usually delicious!More

Very tasty and fresh curry. Onion bhajis and Nan bread lovely. I had chicken bhuna and my wife loves the chicken korma from here. Good service.

I ordered a takeaway from here based on online reviews and I was extremely happy that I did. I ordered a tandoori king prawn grill - which came with mint sauce and salad, a tadka dal and a naan bread. The dal was probably one...of the best tasting that I’ve had in years. So many places that I’ve tried just get the simple flavours and texture wrong, so I was very pleasantly surprised. The spices were spot on and it was just so tasty. The naan was also perfect - often it can be soggy from the journey but it was fluffy and tasted wonderful. The prawns were great too and came with onions and I was suitably impressed with everything, as you can tell. All in all, I would recommend this establishment and will definitely try some of their other dishes.More

Not much to say other than reasonably priced, friendy and good quality food. Onion Bhaji starters were huge though and filled my partner up before mains so she left with a take away

Such a fabulous restaurant! E popped in here after a night out and were very pleased that we had. Portion sizes were fantastic and very good value. The flavours for out dishes were absolutely superb… King prawns and crab curry highly recommended, I am a...massive fan of paneer which did not disappoint. The chicken dish with wild lemon that we also had was very generous with the chicken, the lemon did not over-power but added to the blend of spices to give a tasty well-balanced tandoori dish. We’ll definitely be going back here to try some other dishes. The best curry I have had in a long time.More

Amazing and attentive staff, best naan bread ever! Popped here for my birthday dinner with my husband and brother, everything about our visit has been top notch. The staff couldn’t do enough, the red sauce with the poppadoms was delicious, our shared starter was wonderful...(they give you more than one bit of each too, which is a nice touch). I had the cheese and garlic naan, which was the most tasty naan I’ve ever eaten in 25 years. All of us are stuffed from our mains (we ordered too much) and the waiters are kindly bagging it up for us to take home for lunch tomorrow. Absolutely delicious dinner, amazing service, couldn’t ask for more.More

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful evening at this well established restaurant. Obviously, after such a long time closed to diners, they were keen to impress. They definitely did that. From the moment we arrived, we were treated royally. Every element for a great meal...was unconditionally catered for . It's no surprise that this restaurant is still going strong after nearly forty years. Well done the Royal Tandoori.More

Well first let me say I've eaten here on several occasions and always enjoyed the food, the service however leaves alot to be desired, as does the manager! My friend called to enquire the day before if they were still participating in Eat Out to...Help Out scheme & we were told YES! So we booked a table. We ordered our food, there was a small card on the table offering a complimentary starter when a main course was ordered, we made enquiries regarding this but the waiter said he didn't know nothing about it, he didn't seem to understand what we were asking so we left it. We ate our food & requested the bill. On the arrival of the bill we noticed no discount had been applied, so we queried it, only to be told NO they're no longer participating in that scheme, they were only offering a complimentary starter. We asked to speak to the manager ( little did we know we were already speaking to him), he was rude, unhelpful and adamant that we were not told told what we heard. & that we were lying and that it was our fault that we didn't order the complimentary starter! This would be the one his staff don't even know about. Needless to say this attracted the notice of other diners, we would've been more than happy to pay the full cost it wasn't for his arrogance and insistance that we were wrong!! Oh we did have a starter but wasn't given the discount so we applied that ourselves. I will never order a take away or dine in, in this establishment ever again. As a manager he should've taken on board what we were saying, rather than dismiss us saying he didn't need our custom.More

We usually come in for a meal but with the new rules we couldn’t meet our friends. So we had a takeaway instead. I really enjoyed the food as usual. The korma was cooked to perfection and the paswaree nan tasted amazing. Can’t wait to...back to normal and eat in again.More

I asked for paneer instead of chicken in my tikka masala and the restaurant did this for me and it was lovely. Sag aloo and mushroom rice were the best I have ever had! Will be back!

Very slow service, very expensive food and food full of sugar - My Dhansak, which is usually spicy and smooth was so sweet i could not eat it. 3 times they tried to get it sorted out to no avail! Everyone else had finished their...meals before mine was sorted so I asked for a doggy bag. My son's Korma was equally as sweet - too much sugar also. Also very high bill for 4 with 3 alcoholic drinks (but no itemised bill for them!) - not for us again.More

Went to Royal Tandoor in Selsdon with friends. Food and service was excellent. Ambience was great too. Thereafter, also ordered takeaway later in the week. Food arrived hot and was equally delicious. Renas, gentleman who took my order over the phone was very professional and...charming. He also took the note of my request for less oil, so was very happy when food arrived with extra green chilies and less oil. After a bad experience with Selsdon Spice last year, I am pleased to find a good restaurant with excellent service and food - eat in or takeaway.More

This was the first time we dined out since lockdown and the pandemic began. We went and enjoyed a lovely evening especially with the governments incentive offer. The restaurant was full and lively, the atmosphere was great. Honestly, we’ve missed this so much, seeing people...enjoy themselves and having fun conversations and catch ups. The food was great as it always is. Have been having the best quality for years and was great to finally enjoy it in the restaurant itself. Our waiter for the evening was very friendly and although he wore a mask, I could see his eyes and cheeks he was always smiley and courteous. Will be back again very soon after our first visit after months were thoroughly enjoyed.More
