Alibaba Tandoori is a fantastic restaurant that never disappoints. My boyfriend and I travel to come to this restaurant and we usually come once/twice every 2 weeks. From day one the restaurant and staff impressed us with their delicious food and brilliant customer service that is always warm and friendly. We always look forward to eating here and always leave...

I travelled 70 miles and decided to revisit our favourite Indian restaurant in Watford with my son. We have been a good customer with Miah for 20 years off and on, but 3 years ago moved to the Cotswolds. We had the Banquet, which is fantastic value & very enjoyable. It was a pleasure as I become more and more... More

I picked Alibaba's after seeing the food hygiene ratings for the majority of other local take-aways (they score 5 out of 5). We have had several meals from them now and the food is always delicious and the same gentleman who delivers it (I think is the owner) is always warm and friendly! I would definitely recommend their food. (I... More

My work colleagues and I have been visiting Alibabas once a month for many years and have always had great food, good service and a warm welcome. Recently the area has been saturated with new fangled 'modern' plastic chicken and Mexican chain restaurants which might account for other people stating there were only a few other diners. Great if that... More

First time visit whilst staying at a local hotel. The food was fine although it was a Sunday night and the place lacked atmosphere with only a few other diners there. Some items such as draught lager were not available - just the more expensive bottled varieties. Service was ok but nothing exceptional. Id not put anyone off going but... More

Whilst visiting Watford myself and my husband and daughter visited this restaurant for a meal. We clearly ordered 3 banquet meals as advertised on the front window as £9.95 each. Knowing this the waiter offered poppadums' to start, we also ordered diet cokes advertised as £1.50 on the menu it did not state what size drink this was and the... More

Have just revisited the Alibaba after a long very time, probably not since around 1990. It was great to see the interior hadn’t changed too much especially the ceiling with it onion type plaster work and the similar exterior frontage. However the nostalgia ends there. The Tandoori mixed grill was disappointing, it appeared to of been cooked a good while... More

Never fails to amaze us. Food is traditional fayre, but always well cooked and tasty. Staff are excellent too - especially the owner Mir, who always greets us with a smile and a handshake. Also do great delivery curry too.

The staff at Alibaba are always very friendly when we have used this restaurant for either take a way's or eating in. They are very attentive and the food has always been of a good standard. Also, unlike some restaurants, the portions are very generous, to much to eat at times. I would recommend this restaurant 100%.
