Very good

We visit here often and it's probably the best and most consistent indian restaurant that we've found in Tamworth. The staff are friendly, the owner/manager even more so and he'll make sure there's always a table for us, no matter how busy they are. The food is always great.

Went with four friends for our annual Christmas curry. This was a first at the Ivory Tusk but we were not disappointed. The food was definitely prepared to order, starting with a mixed plate of Indian starters. The main course's were served hot and straight from the kitchen. Overall, well sized portions probably did not need the extra rice and... More

This is easily my favourite Indian restaurant in Tamworth. Most of the staff are friendly, food is brilliant and the decoration and atmosphere is lovely. Very professional and fairly priced. Definitely recommend!

Just along the street from The Drayton Court hotel the food is very very good. As a matter of fact there was one Indian chap working in the area and staying in the Drayton Court for 6 months and he liked the food so much he ate there every day

I visited with a business colleague on a Tuesday evening and there was only one other customer in the restaurant.... It was about 9.30pm so I expect the staff were a bit bored or looking to go home early.... Their attitude was not particularly welcoming. When they visited the table they kept communication to a minimum and the atmosphere Was... More

I can honestly say this is the best Indian / Bangladeshi food I have ever tasted! The food was exceptional, full of flavour and aromatic spices. The food is faultless but the staff could be more friendly and engaging and smile more! They are a bit too reserved. The ambience is fine and the restaurant is very clean. Highly recommend......
