Have been here many times now with family and friends. The staff are very good polite and also friendly. Cannot fault the place we have had celebrations here and hope to go back again soon. Always enjoy the meals we have had here including the starters right thru to the coffee and cream at the end.

Being new to South shields I was amazed at the number of Indian restaurants on this Ocean Road. Decided to try out Tandoori International purely to make a start somewhere and we were not disappointed. The starter bhajis were soft and tasty. My vindaloo was done exactly how I had in mind. Will certainly return.
