Worth a visit !

Four of us went on a busy Friday night. On arrival we were promptly seated and offered beer and papadums. The service was efficient throughout the evening even though the place was crowded. All four main dishes were delicious but the stand out dish was the special Kathmandu hot curry. The... read more

Had takeaway from here and food was ok. Portions seemed to have got smaller so wished we'd ordered a bit more but flavours were ok. Don't know if I'll order again from here though to be honest. Seems it's gone down hill recently

I've been using this place for 30 plus years. Owned by the same family.. Quality has dipped bait, New surroundings bland & echo! Take aways are the better. Meat in said takeaways getting less? Better take away than most! Nothing Bright RED!

Rude staff! Average food. Completely shocked at how rude all the staff were - they clearly do not care about returning customers. They got our order wrong but continued to act like we had ordered wrong and then tried to charge us more! Will never go back!!!

Service was absolutely terrible, rude staff who were more bothered about standing around doing nothing. Food was nothing above average, would definitely not recommend. 100% will not be returning!

Decided to go here on a recommendation and was glad I did. The food was excellent, everyone in our party of four said their food was delicious. The only slight niggle I'd have is that we did have to wait a while for our food but it was well worth it when it arrived. Will be visiting again.

Used Leigh Tandoori for a takeaway last night as my usual place has closed down. The order took around 45 mins to arrive which is what they had quoted. The food itself was fine although the portions seemed small compared to other places I have used.

Living in Bishops Stortford which has a number of Indian restaurants my experience of writing in this regard should be fairly reasonable. Unfortunately the staff were excused for being 'very young' but were borderline confrontational-rude doesn't quite cover it, and the service was incredibly slow. I would recommend that you try another restaurant.

I visited with May partner on a Saturday night. We didn't have a reservation but that wasn't a problem and we were quickly taken to a table and were offered drinks, popadoms and a pickle tray. The pickles were fresh and authentic. We both decided to go for dishes on the house menu - both were delicious though the waiter... More
