I booked a table for 5 (including a credit card deposit!?) and were told, upon arriving, that we had to have a set menu for £30 with no option to have the a-la-carte menu. Clearly we queried this and were rudely told that it was...More

We dined there early in the evening and had the place to ourselves. Quiet, refined service. Yummy curries, rice and vegetables, some off the extensive regular menu, some off the evening's specials. I can see why this restaurant is still in business after 30 years....More

The dining room at Kennington Tandoori is an elegant space dressed in lemon, plum and chocolate colours. Located on Kennington Road, this south London restaurant draws a local crowd and is always bustling with a lively mix of tables for two, business groups and politicians. The food is the real star of the show here, and the kitchen staff at Kennington Tandoori pay attention to detail - roasting and grinding all their own spices and making up all their own fresh stocks in-house. The menu – which is filled with classics such as the chicken tikka cooked with almonds, pistachios and coconut cream in a saffron sauce – is complimented by a bespoke wine list created by Caspar Auchterlonie.
