“New Menu, New Chef and New Owner! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Much, much better now it's under new ownership! (formerly the Dunbar Tandoori Restaurant). Extensive menu of old favourites and lots of new exciting dishes as well. Service was quick, courteous and the food was excellent as well. Try it, I don't think you'll be disappointed!

“Spicy taste in Dunbar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Have visited many times and have rarely had a repeated dish from the extensive menu. Friendly staff and excellent service. Reasonable prices.

“Excellent Food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Whilst visiting friends in Dunbar, we had the opportunity to visit the Dunbar Tandoori, as this was their favourite Indian Restaurant. I can honestly say that the food was excellent along with the service to match. Although, there was only 4 in our party, the restaurant was full. At no time did the service suffer and the Manager even had time to come and chat to us. Next time, we visit friends, we will surely be paying another visit.

“Always stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Raj & Rashied always do their best to give you great food! Amazing food at a great price, being honest I am now disappointed in pleaces like the so called great indian restraunts like Cavalray Club in Edinburgh, as this is better food for far less! Best Indian in East Lothian by far!

“Divine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I would never have expected to find such astounding Indian food in such a small town! The chef really knows what he/she is doing. A great choice of both meat and vegetarian curries (my particular favourite being the motor pasanda - never tasted anything like it!). I normally order as a takeaway, but have visited the restaurant on a couple of occasions - the service is very slow, so be prepared. It is worth the wait though!
