The service is first class and the food from the starters to the desert was well presented and tasted beautiful. The staff are very friendly and attentive.

Situated just off the A5 in Fazeley, Tamworth I've visited the Ivory Tusk over half a dozen times with friends who live locally. It's never been by choice due to a consistently poor in house service. The time before last (probably 12 months ago) the South Indian Garlic Chicken tasted of burnt garlic and the hot towels served at the... More

Visited the Ivory Tusk on two occasions . On the first visit we had only been looking at the menus for a little while when the waiter asked us if we were ready to order . The starters arrived and i was still eating mine while the waiter was waiting for us to finish . I took my last mouthful... More

Once a regular, I had not been to the Ivory Tusk for a while but decided to pop in last night with friends who had never been before. We arrived around 10pm so getting a seat was not a problem. The waiter showed us to our table and we ordered our food. Food was served promptly & although my friend... More

Used to be the best place in town now it's gone downhill. Quality of chicken is poor. Either buying in cheap ingrediants or just can't be bothered anymore. As someone said hit and miss bit more miss. Shame as no where else to go in Tamworth. Kudos is even worse.

Excellent surroundings, the restaurant has nice ornaments which give you the Indian feel. Food is brought out into the restaurant and placed on hot plates so you can see it sizzling ready for you. The prices were really good, it cost us £26 for the two of us and that included drinks and side dishes.
