Good place to eat, but read my tips

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... read 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.

I wouldn't go as far as saying this place is terrible but if you could imagine having an empty restaurant where you bring your own drinks and all that it there is a microwave and cutlery then you bring your own supermarket curries and that would be a good description how the food appears to be prepared. The waiter is... More

My wife and I and my son and his wife and two young children went last night to the weekly Special Tuesday Curry Night. For £10.95 per head you were able to select a starter, a main, a rice/nan and coffee. We were greeted by a very friendly waiter who took our coats and sat us down to a well... More

I have just read the previous review. I would like to add that I have been visiting this restaurant for 10 plus years and have never had any issues with payments and bad experiences. Obviously if I'm ordering by phone then the card details would have to be noted temporarily, but I am assured that the details are dicarded of... More

uRGENT! Please do not use your cards in this place, they seem to write your card details on the back of the order pad, and simply make out they scribble them out and throw them in the bin. We caught onto this and when we confronted them they admit try copy but throw them in the bin. We got out... More
