The best tandoori chicken I've ever tasted and a nice feel to the restaurant although it was very quiet as it was a week day. Good staff and good food what more do you want.

Whilst staying at the Cumbria Park hotel over the road we were told they could not fit us in for Dinner which was a 1st! Walked up the road and found the Stanwix persuaded my 75 year old father that he could find something mild he would like and in we went. The Staff were great and recommended a chicken... More

We called in to the Stanwix Tandoori prior to going to a late screening at the cinema. We were warmly welcomed, waited in reception whilst our order was taken. Drinks were promptly brought and we were shown to our table which was located in individual booths. This is a really nice touch as it gives some privacy in dining although... More

Located above a row of shops this is a hidden gem. Polite young knowledgeable staff. All round good atmosphere and food on a Thursday evening. Well done.

The evening started off well and were greeted by friendly staff who took our drinks order and then took our food order. Sadly that's the best it got. We started with popadoms but the dips were of very poor quality. The starters were not authentic or homemade. The chicken pakora was more like a Chinese sweet and sour chicken ball... More

Visited the Stanwix Tandoori with friends, having not visited for many years. I remember being underwhelmed way back when, and unfortunately it was the same again on this occasion. The restaurant is a typical 1980s Indian restaurant affair - which I actually quite like, though it was feeling tired in many ways. Tables in the middle were too close to... More

I hadn't been to Stanwix Tandoori for many years and we all enjoyed our meal. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was very good (I can recommend the Paneer!) and we all felt it was good value.

We were all looking forward to eating here as we are a group of friends who don't meet up much and we'd been here years ago and it was quite good. Unfortunately, the place didn't live up to our expectations. Firstly, the decor and overall ambience could be massively improved. The dated decor and lack of authentic indian music gave... More
