I have been using this restaurant for over 15 years. I always have the same takeaway meal when I want to eat at home. I've ordered the same food at other Indian Takeaways and it is never as good. I wish I had the recipe for it!

We are locals and dine here whenever we get the opportunity. Super food every time and such lovely people who offer fantastic, friendly service. We run a local B&B and recommend The Downham Tandoori to our guests who always come back full of praise. And it is such great value, our London friends can never believe how little a meal... More

We had not been to the Downham Tandoori for many years so decided to give it a try. Very nice meal and very helpful staff explaining odd courses I was not sure about. Cannot fault any aspect of the evening and we will be sure to visit again more often now we have re-discovered it.

But it was no ordinary meal, it was the best Indian I've ever had. The food was great and it was at a reasonable price making it good value. Moreover... More

Fantastic food here yet again- always reliable. Value for money here- meal for 4 and drinks and starters were just under £50. Going again very soon.

Went for lunch. Which I appreciate may not always be best for the restaurant but we were the only group in. A family run place using fresh ingredients. The staff were attentive but didn't hang around, perfect. I ordered the vegetable biriyani and wasn't impressed. The veg 'seemed' to be of the frozen chopped veg variety and the rice had... More

Good Indian food at fair prices with friendly staff. Portion sizes were more than adequate and food quality was very good.
