From all of the choice in Shields as a family and group of friends we always choose here. The food is gorgeous and the staff are so friendly. It's not the cheapest but it by no means needs to be as it's not lacking in service. So in summary food and staff are great :)

Went on a Monday night and the place looked busy which is always a good sign. Top notch service and food from the only Indians on one side of OceAn Road.

Visited with my partner late last night and had a lovely meal. I had a chicken Malayan which was lovely and my partner had a Shanghai which was far too spicy for me. I mentioned to the waiter that I have a nut allergy and he was very helpful and let me know that everything we had ordered (even my... More

If your after amazing service and tasty food go here, I've tried most of the curry houses down ocean road over the years and Tandoori International is now my personal favourite. I can see that one thing that can be off putting is how close the tables are to each other but for me it's no problem. The food is... More

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

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.
