“Not great food and very expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

I went with a friend when Tandoori Night was closed for a refurb and we were extremely disappointed with the food, service and prices. Firstly, one of their ovens was broken so they could not do naan breads. Secondly, the curry's were bland and completely lacking in flavour. Thirdly, the service was slow to say the least. Finally, it was very expensive - twice what we would normally pay at Tandoori Night.

“Bland and Poor”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2012

Visited here when meeting up with a friend.
Been here in the past and had great meals so thought I would visit after not been there for about 3 years.
You would not believe how dissapointed I was.
The starters were pf a very poor standard and what made it worse was the fact that main course was very bland.
Would not visit again unless there is a massive improvment

“not impressed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

terrible service. waiters were busy serving young kids who were barely 15 with drinks and these young kids were all over slipping and shouting. The overall the place was too noisy with tables very close to each other no atmosphere at all. and the food was too hot i like my chicken rogangosh and this was over spiced.

“Small portions and poor attempt at Indian cuisine. Most choices are just different sauces and different colours.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

Try looking around town, I dont particularly like the food they serve but gotta be better than 4 pieces of meat in a lumicolour sauce. Disappointing and shocking prices
