“Chapatis from a packet”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Starter
Chicken tikka - good meat well flavoured

2x main courses
Lamb from the specials - hardly any meat just blobs of fat. Sauce tasted like a jar with added lime pickle. Too many large lumps of inedible tough lime. Lot's of liquid fat sat floating on top of the fish
Chicken from specials - meat ok though not much of it for the £ sauce tasted again as if from a jar.
Pilau rice - good
Chapatis - awful not home made.Definitely from a packet

Customer service - on advising the waiter how unpleasant we were finding the meal he very kindly deducted a whole 80p from our bill for the chapatis which he agreed were from a packet. The lamb curry however I had to pay full price for at almost £10 felt robbed.

Will not visit again.

“Great place and delicious food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Together with friends we decided to celebrate my husband's birthday, so we went for dinner at the Scarborough Tandoori. We were greeted at the door by a restaurant owner who showed us our table. Once we took our seats, very nice waiter handed us the menu. There was plenty to choose from, the prices were just right for our budget. After ordering the bartender gave us our drinks. For food we waited a very short time. Everything was delicious. Great atmosphere, beautiful music in the background, and above all, we all remember the friendly service and really tasty, originally presented food. Definitely will visit there soon. We recommend everyone to visit this place.

“Never Disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Another great night at The Scarborough Tandoori. The food was as tasty as ever, piping hot and plenty of it. We took our friends along with us on this occasion and they were as equally impressed. As always the place was very busy but this did not detract from the quality of the food and the excellent service.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Into our 3rd year running for our Christmas party once again Ali pulled out all the stops for us, We had fantastic service and the range of food was lovely. If you want a private party then I would highly recommend the function room it's a lovely relaxed atmosphere and Ali and his staff can't do enough for you. always adapt to your needs can't wait to book again this Christmas. A great big thank you
