Delicious Curry & Tandoori

The restaurant is rather small but the delicious curry and tandoori more than make up for for it. We had the tandoori mixed grill, lamb noorjahani, bhindi bhaji (okra), garlic nan and rice. The portions were large and the taste of the good was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant and... read more

Having been to the Oval to watch England win the Ashes, we wanted a restaurant near the ground and Coriander fit red the bill very well. An excellent Indian restaurant with an assortment of different dishes; more so than an average Indian, we found both the food and the service of a high quality. My wife had a prawn pure... More

Quite a compact place but comfortable. A good selection of food and of good quality, though nothing to shout about. Service ok but at least they serve quickly.

We were very impressed by the organization and scope of the menu. We tried to sample something from different regions, and were very impressed by everything we tried. If anything, The tikka masala is good but there are so many other dishes to experiment with that it's worthwhile to give it a pass so you have more room to sample... More

Asked for £20 as a deposit for poppadoms - waiters very rude, we think because they didn't like who we were! Will not go back! It's unfortunate as we have been a few times before.

Been eating at this restaurant for 3/4 years now! It's a great restaurant but sometimes suffers from variable service. My most recent visit was great. The food was tasty. I had the mixed grill and a vegetable side dish. Both were amazing and the peshwari naan is always v v good. The service just needs to raise a little. Overall... More

As always: good food, comfortable environment, mostly cheerful staff. Even the house wine is reasonable. I recommend if you are in the area.

Excellent Indian Food. If you're missing your usual home fare, this is the place to head for. Service is very polite and courteous. The portions are good and the prices reasonable

This was our first experience with Indian food so we can't say that it was the best or worst we've ever had. We ordered from The Coriander because they delivered to our hotel, and we heard that chicken tikka masala a very popular dish in England. The food arrived quickly and it was hot (temperature) and spicy. We enjoyed it.

Went here with a couple of friends Friday night. Food arrived promptly and was tasty. After eating our food we were busy catching up chatting and saying how nice the food was as you do. So imagine our surprise when we were asked to leave by the waiter telling us that I was closing time even the though the restaurant... More
