The Smithfield Tandoori is tucked around the corner on Smithfield street. I was initially doubting whether it was even there, as we were walking and the road curved slowly to the left, making each building appear on the horizon only as we came to it....More

Around the corner from the Smithfield Square and handily next to Karaoke Box for a post revellry curry this Tandoori ticked all of the boxes for flavour and range of dishes. The newly opened restaurant itself is a wide open space with plenty of seating...More

I had one of my occasional veggie lunches here. First disappointment : no mango lassi..... Naan was ok , average good. Muttar mushrooms were goods, gobi less so (too cooked). Mango sorbet not good at all. Overall average.

The proprietor/manager is extremely welcoming. The menu is wide-ranging, with some unusual as well as standard choices. And the food is tasty. The restaurant was fairly quiet when we went, which is a plus, as far as I'm concerned. It's more or less opposite Smithfield...More

If you are looking for a very good, authentic Indian in London you should try the Smithfield Tandoori. It's lovely inside, cozy, low level lighting but it has a very modern feel. There are plenty of staff to make sure you never have to wait...More

This is a restaurant for business people to eat a posh curry with other business people. Large impersonal room with little lighting and no atmosphere. Food was ok, but expensive and there are so many better curry places to eat in London.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office

every era in between, including Christopher Wren's

After a hard morning trawling the market or a day behind a desk in the City, there are few places more perfect for relaxing and unwinding than The Smithfield Tandoori, recommended by no less than The Evening Standard���s Charles Campion as one of his picks for London curry. Proudly traditional in its cooking style, The Smithfield Tandoori concentrates on food, leaving its dining room simple and unfussy, decorated in red and white with high ceilings and unpretentious furnishings, providing an atmosphere which really does make visitors concentrate on flavours and aromas, not to mention the warm, professional service. Sourcing local ingredients wherever possible, The Smithfield Tandoori makes use of the wealth of market traders around the capital, using fresh and traceable produce in authentic Tandoori and regional Indian dishes. The kitchen insists not only on making up all their own curry pastes, but in eschewing all unnatural additives, meaning that The Smithfield Tandoori is one of only a few Indian restaurants in the capital where ���home-cooked��� really means something.
