“This restaurant is appalling”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I have just been subjected to the worst example of British Indian cooking imaginable. The restaurant boasts that it is in the top 5 in the country when in fact the food is actually at a shockingly low standard at an extortionate price. The rating is entirely bogus and should be the subject of a Trading Standards investigation. The service was dreadful, we were hurried through every course although that actually was a blessing as we could not leave fast enough.
10% service charge was the final insult
Do not waste your money here.

“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I have been visiting this restaurant since it opened and cannot say enough good things about it. The staff and food are second to none. This restaurant is a great favourite of the Abbots Langley and Kings Langley locals. There are other indian restaurants in both villages but this is by far the very best.

Shah and his team raised £500.00 for the local Henderson Memorial Hall at their recent Gala Evening celebrating their 25 years in Abbots Langley. Well Done!

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Not sure what the picture of the Lounge is about in the main picture - ignore that, it is a proper restaurant! 4 happy customers left Abbots Tandori last night - the food was so so good and having tried a few other local Indian restaurants I will always pick this one from now on!

“Our favourite Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We have been visiting this restaurant virtually every month for the last four years. The food and service never disappoints and we really enjoy our time here. Even picking up a takeaway is a pleasant experience!

The restaurant is very comfortable with a nice ambience, quiet background music and attentive and helpful staff. The menu is very varied including dishes from both India and Bangladesh. The chef's specials are highly recommended.

We particularly like the staff who are always very pleasant and genuinely welcoming and pleased to see you.
