Good food and value for money.

Excellent selection of food. Tandoori International offers a lot more than the majority of the restaurants in the area. The food is presented well and taste good. Excellent value for money when choosing from the specials menu. Staff are friendly and attend to you quickly.

This is the best Indian Restaurant on Ocean Road (and there are loads!) and I would not go anywhere else. They do a few different menu deals and the Chicken Jalfrezi is the best curry and comes out on a sizzling platter.

There is a wide choice of Indian restaurants in South Shields, and we've eaten at many. The staff and service at the Tandoori International are always excellent - but on our last couple of visits the food has been disappointing. Last nights onion bhaji was crispy but tasteless and the quantity of chicken in the main courses was less than... More

Went here on a Sunday night, we booked ahead as thought it would be busy during holiday season and it was. We were welcomed and seated straight away, it was a little noisy, lots of children in. The starters were beautifully presented, although mine was a little on the cold side. Main courses were lovely. The menu is vast and... More

This is the first time I've been let down by this place, the staff were lovely as always, friendly and polite. However the food on this visit was below par and the room was boiling, I asked if the air conditioning was on and they said the manager only allowed it on if somebody asked. He then put it on,...

This was an alternative first choice as our usual (and best) curry house (Star of India) is closed for refurbishment. A bad choice unfortunately. The interior of the place is quite nice, well set out tables and bright modern design in what was probably a large Victorian house. The quality of the food is poor, and surprisingly so, given that...

we came to this restaurant because our favourite one was closed. The starters were fine, that was the only good thing. The main courses were chicken biryani which was quite tasteless, my husband was expecting a thin omelette on the top but got a boiled egg stuck in the middle of it, a chicken tikka masala was next which was...

After my son and friends ate out here I decided to give a try as I would normally go to a different curry house on ocean rd of which I have visited for many years. My son says no need to book so when we got there we couldn't get a table for 35 mins so we went for drink... More
