The Alamin Tandoori has been on a corner of Tavistock St for decades now, and does not seem to change inside or outside. To survive that long in the fiercely competitive market in Bedford is a big achievement. So it is not surprising that the food is good and the service is quick and very friendly. Long may it continue.

We had a curry here as part of a fairly large group when visiting a friend who works in the area and joined in with her work's night out. I went for a Chicken Jalfrezi with Pilau Rice and Garlic Naan. The food was very tasty and tasted fresh, nicely served up. All washed down with a couple of pints... More

I have my biases. I'm from the heart of the Balti Triangle in Brum and have eaten at similar restaurants all my life. I've also travelled fairly widely and experienced all manner of qualities of food. So I don't lightly say that Alamin Tandoori is excellent. My most recent visit was treating a friend to an evening meal; service as... More

I always love eating at the Alamin as the service is quick, friendly and attentive and the food is delicious with generous portions at a very reasonable price. I'll be back soon!

This is a very cosy little restaurant with lovely staff, but the menu is bog standard and the same as all the other nearby restaurants, causing it not the stand out from the crowd.

Sadly Bedford is full of average Indian restaurants which mostly have almost identical menus. (with one or two exceptions) Value can be very poor. Like most the Alamin is friendly and the atmosphere is very pleasant. Service is prompt. But this cannot make up for the mediocre food.
