My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on the last day of the famous festival - Cowes Week. The food was well over priced and probably, we would have never gone there if it wasn't because of the busy day. Like any other normal person, we took between 5-10 minutes to decide what we want for food. The manager/supervisor... More

Wish we had read the reviews on here before choosing this curry house, as we probably would have avoided it. As it was, we first went into the Bahar Tandoori but found the decor outdated and no one came to seat us straight away. Wish we had just stayed there instead! Anyway, first question we asked the head waiter was... More

A group of us had a meal here after sailing. The food did take quite a long time to come, but we were pretty happy chatting and drinking Cobra. Food was good. Some of my fellow diners thought it better than the two other Indian restaurants in Cowes. I'll reserve judgment on that, but I thought it was fine. Bill... More

We wanted to eat local food and were a bit hesitant to go for the Indian but glad we did. The food is delicious. Friendly staff. Must try.

I got a takeaway from this place and it was poor. I went there in person to place my order, the place was empty but I still felt that the staff were totally indifferent. Sadly, that was the highlight of my experience there. The "food" was awful - virtually tasteless.... which for a curry, takes some doing!

Me and my wife use this as our local take-out and occasionally eat in on their "Banquet Nights" and having tried all other curry houses nearby, have found it to be the best Indian food in Cowes. Value wise, some of the chef's specials are slightly overpriced but I feel the extra couple of pounds is worth it for the... More

whenever we fancy an indian, we go to Cowes tandoori. The takeaway selection is as good as eating in. the food is always piping hot, and meat tender. Not had a bad meal.

We visited on a Tuesday night, with a 3 course meal for £10.95 each, we took our own wine. We were very pleased with the food and service. The restaurant was spotless, the food arrived in good time and was well presented, - my only suggestion would be to have some pictures on the walls, and a little light music!
