Great Food, Good service what more could you want ?

We have now been to this restaurant several time an have been disappointed. The food is always of a high standard and the service is second to none. Give the place a try. For those of you who do not like very spicy food the extensive menu has a good selection of fine but mild dishes. Well done... read more

OK. I've taken a food hygiene course. I wouldn't eat anywhere that doesn't proudly display it's local authority food hygiene stars (5 stars are not all that hard to achieve ) - why would you? There are three Indian restaurants in Cowes and only Cowes Tandoori displays their stars (yep, a full five). Bahar Tandoori has a picture or Richard... More

Arrived wet as we got caught in a shower on the walk down, but we were welcomed and our wet coats and umbrella taken away to dry. We thought this was a small restaurant as it is small when you walk in, but there are also tables upstairs. Staff were knowledgeable about the menu and food arrived quickly and well... More

On a Tuesday's it's a set menu for around a tenner. This includes a starter, main and coffee. If your going with friends you can create a good meal to share. It's a bring your own bottle and they don't charge corkage, and do take your own the house white wine isn't great. Skip the coffee though, it's just bad.... More

Not the place to go during Cowes Week as it feels a bit like a production line but otherwise for the remaining 51 weeks each year it is a lovely spot after a few post sailing ales. Been there for years - I have used it for about 30!

A nicely balanced place. Tidy, calm, very good waiter, the music was not too loud, but clear. The food was tasty, arrived in time - I have taken vegetarian starter and Duck Tikka Masala. My wife took cold King Prawns tandoori for starter and the same, but hot for the main course. The dessert was superb, the lemon stuffed with... More

My brother orderd a takeaway here for all 4 of us. I did tell him to avoid this place, but he was willing to try it for himself. The food was not hot, and rather cold. Very bland, and not worth the money. Food came very quick which made us wonder if it was straight from the fridge and not... More

My friend and I are not great curry eaters, preferring korma over anything else too spicy. We found Cowes Tandori welcoming , reasonably priced with good service.

Had great food here and am practically an authority on curry. As usual you get stung on the drinks but the only real criticism was the surly waiter but this wouldn't put me off going again.
