Very Average

The Tandoori used to be great - they had a thai menu which was amazing, however since changing hands it is now just a very standard Indian. Alright, but nothing special.

Every year for the last 5 years, I have sailed the Waters around these Islands out of Largs. Each time I have been to Tarburt I have been to the Tandoori. Although I never expect much, I was suprisingly dissapointed ths year by the welcome, service, waiting and ultimately terrible food. I ordered a curry that I could not even... More

After several visits in 2011 we were looking forward to enjoying many more this year. Sadly the Tarbert Tandoori has closed (in fact, it looks like they just walked away after their last service)

Noticed the tandoori was open again, and have been twice since! Good food, slightly limited menu, (the last lot had some thai dishes on the menu too) but over all, glad its back up and running! Looking forward to my next visit!

Looked forward to eating at the Tarbert Tandoori, but sadly it is now closed. We were looking forward to a nice meal as the reviews had been good. Fortunately there are a good number of other restaurants in the town and all within easy walking distance of each other.

We were staying on the area and love Indian foods . So we gave it a go . Great food . Fabulous tastes . The lamb dish I had was the most tender lamb I've ever had and loads of meat . The mushroom rice was a delight on its own . Pity we live so far away in Birmingham... More

I reviewed this restaurant some time ago. It was awful then. I learned it had new owners and staff so I decided to try it again. I am so pleased I did. It now offers a choice of Indian or Thai food. I tried the Indian, it was truly excellent and the staff were extremely welcoming and pleasant. The curry... More

Tarbert is a tiny town so an Indian restaurant seems like a bit of a novelty. We were here right after it opened and the owner has plans for making it a very special place. The food was good and reasonablly priced.

Although this is a very basic takeaway with a few tables it is worth a try. Our rather in adventurous meal of onion Bhaji, chicken tikka masala and special mix biyriani was served quickly and was tasty and fresh. The naan bread was particularly good. Not licensed but okay to take your own
