Indian cuisine at its best!

Really nice to see Shaleem and team again tonight. The food at Tandoor Mahal is always excellent and Shaleem and team always go the extra mile to make Dad and I feel special.

We went to this restaurant in a Wednesday night as we had a rare night out without the children. We were very disappointed! There were a few other people in there but there was no atmosphere and we were looked at like aliens when we walked in. The decor needs updating and it all felt a bit shabby. When the... More

Plus 10% discount was deducted as the returant is celebrating 41 years of operation. Resturant is unusual in layout and over looks a car park. Warning if parking becareful... More

Our family have been frequent diners here since the place opened more than 40 years ago. During this time I have travelled world wide, and know that I am home at the Tandoor Mahal. Never disappointed and still delight in taking my friends for an excellent Indian meal in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Having previously reviewed this place as really good I have been totally put following a take away that I purchased. Myself and my partner decided on a treat on a Friday night (24th July) the day before we were due to travel on our summer holiday. I ordered a chicken korma and some sides something that I've had before with... More

I've been to this curry has many times and used to be my favourite curry restaurant. Last night the service was extremely slow. It took 10 minutes to take drink orders from time we sat down another nearly hour to take food order and nearly another hour for food to arrive. Some items did not arrive. The pashvari naan bread...

Come here for the 5th time. Great food but you have to wait hours for the drinks and food. Awful service, lost count on the times myself and friends have been hit by elbows and drinks spilt on us. Don't be in a rush as although the food is good, you'll have to wait a few hours for it. By... More

One of two really good Indian restaurants in Maidstone. Maybe the decor is a bit tired, but the food is good and the staff are friendly.
