“You won't be disappointed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My friends and I ate here back in March during a 3-day stay in Cairns. We happened upon this place while walking around town one evening and decide to give it a shot. When we entered the restaurant, we found it almost empty and wondered if it was a sign of how the food and/or service would be. To our surprise, the food was delicious and the service excellent. We ordered several types of curry and naan, all of them rich and full of flavor. The waiter was attentive and quick to offer us more naan when we were running low. Overall, a wonderful dining experience in Cairns!

“Excelent surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

My son and his wife are vegetarians. They arrived in Cairns yesterday and my wife , daughter and myself found an Indian Restaurant that gave the vegetarians a really good choice of meals to choose from.
The location is far from the tourist areas and somewhere I had not considered previously.
My wife has spent quite a lot of time in India and rated the food as AUTHENTIC. It was also yummy. Hardeep , the owner, is from Goa and quite rightly is very proud of the food that his restaurant provides.
Mains range from $16 to $19 AUD and while the restaurant is licenced it is also BYO.
Tandoori Nights you wont regret it!


Great night , excellent food. Recommended.

“THE MOTHER OF ALL INDIAN RESTAURANTS IN CAIRNS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
Hardeep & Mona Gill - Host with the Most & Hostess with the Most-est. Keeps one coming back again and again......
This is the restaurant that is ALL Indian Restaurants in the one. HUGE menu....it will take the pair of us a whole year to try EVERYTHING on your menu - and we are working on it....
Been living in Cairns for 14 years and FINALLY, a decent (understatement) Indian restaurant.....Superb Ambience, Cheerful & personalised service, absolutely reasonably priced dishes....definitely 5-star rating!!!
As the saying goes.....if the locals keep coming back, you know it's good.....Right....off to dinner now @ TANDOORI NIGHTS, GROVE ST, CAIRNS

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

My wife and i stopped by here as it was attached to the hotel we were staying in. The food was amazing, excellent portions and a great price.
I've eaten many times in the so called "Best Indian Restaurant in Australia", all I can say is it's a good thing for them that Tandoori Nights didn't enter.
The staff even delivered our leftovers to our room, which was a really nice touch.

“DONT EAT IT!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We ordered takeaway from here and they said it would be 20mins........30 mins later they had forgotten our order. Then after another 30 mins, they still didn't have our order ready.
Our stomachs were upset for at least 48hours after eating their food!
