We live local to this restaurant and would recommend it to anyone. A lot of the curry houses along Ocean Road are very similar in taste but this one ticks all the boxes. It tastes great, the food is well presented, the staff are really helpful and friendly and the restaurant decor is a lot more modern than some to... More

I have dined at this place a few times in the space of a few months and i shall keep returning!. The food is always cooked to suit my personal taste and credit goes to the waiters who always try their level best to provide a service which is second to none. I have recently been devouring the super size... More

wonderful food, and the best the thing is you don't feel like you're in a cramped space as this restaurant is so large inside. Staff are friendly too.

I had a very good night out with my wife we regularly dine out and sample the rich indian cuisine the waiting staff are very polite and always look forward to the tikka nann bread which is always done to a high standard. I will be going back and will recommend it to all family and friends.

I visited this restaurant with my sister and our uncle who comes here regularly. It was my first visit and I would definitely return. The staff were all really pleasant and helpful. I really could not fault them at all. The food was lovely with plenty of vegetarian options. It was really well presented and backed up by being totally... More

Never have I experienced such a disgraceful restaurant experience in all my life as I did last night here. This was the first time we had tried Tandoori International – on the recommendation of colleagues – and it is certainly the last. To begin with, our waiter seemed disinterested at best. However, the order was taken, and popadoms, dips and... More

As usual the standard is always high. Absolutely fabulous night, we went here as a group of 18, shame we couldn't all be together but thats the size of the group. Excellent service, food completely delicious - well presented and not just plonked on a plate. All in all 18 very happy diners, highly recommended.

The restaurant is beautiful, the service is excellent and there is a nice vibe, especially if you're in a group. However, the prices are high given the overwhelming competition. Most importantly the food struggles to be average. Our chicken was tough, our curry was overly spicy and the group we were with didn't enjoy their food. With Radhuni and The... More
