“This could be the finest Indian restaurant in the country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

My wife and I been going to the Downham Tandoori ever since it opened and, these days, still manage to visit every month or so which is by no means as often as we would like. Always receiving the warmest of welcomes from everyone at this excellent family-run restaurant, we know we can always look forward to a wonderful freshly-cooked meal. The menu is excellent, the food is delicious and very good value for money, and the service is very friendly without being at all intrusive. It is a mark of the Downham Tandoori's success that, around a couple of years ago, they acquired the shop next door in order to be able to nearly double the size of the dining area. We consider ourselves very fortunate to live close by, having been born and brought up in the area, and we look forward to many more years of great Indian dining. Needless to say, we fully recommend a visit to the Downham Tandoori and, whether you want to dine in the restaurant or have a takeaway, we are sure that you won't be disappointed.

We visit the Downham Tandoori at least once a week the food is always spot on every visit.We very often ask for a couple of surprise dishes just so We can sample the many different tastes on offer.Everybody is very friendly at the restaurant and the service is very quick even when they are very busy.We have taken friends on many occasions who often ask if We are going for an Indian meal as they would like to come with us.Chris & Linda

“Lovely family run restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I've been going to this Restaurant since it opened (I think about 17 years) and it is always great. The welcome is so friendly whether takeaway or restaurant eating and almost everyone I know in the area has been coming back time and time again for years. The food is delicious and we struggle to spend more than £16 per head including drinks. They are great at suggesting new dishes to try and will even try to create something to suit individuals if needed. Try it - you won't regret it.

“Great evening.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Went here on a busy Friday evening and everything was superb. The staff are lovely, very polite and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The food was fresh and very tasty. Can't fault the place at all. Best Indian in the area.
