Delicious food, excellent service and a fair price. The waiter was helpfull with selecting a menu for 4 with a veriaty of dishes. The desserts ordered afterwards were very tastfull but frozen, so maybe you should make your choices earlier.

Stopped here one night after traveling back from Liverpool. My wife ran a half there. We were hungry, It was getting late ,and the grocery was closed. My wife and I love curry but are hesitant when it's not recommended to us. We ordered for our two 10 year olds from the burger place a couple doors down. Then moseyed... More

Life is a circle and no circle is complete without a visit to the castle tandoori. No seriously. Popping fresh sauces and the boss is a boss

We wandered in here in March after having a couple of beers at the Coronet downstairs. I wasn't expecting too much as it looks pretty drab outside and and wasn't very busy, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Food was super tasty - butter chicken, naan, chicken tikka and rice and a couple of drinks - and the price was... More

We were after an Indian and on looking on trip advisor we found our nearest was the Castle Tandoori. After reading the reviews we did not expect much. The decor was very indian, clean and nice. The food was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the starter and main. I would highly recommend the broccoli and panneer starter. Meal was very reasonable.... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from this typically 80s look Indian but the food was as to be found in most Indian restaurants around London and the service pleasant. Great value for money although to be expected with the area - it's a local restaurant as opposed to one in central London.

Castle Tandoori is a tired looking restaurant but don't let that put you off. We ordered not quite sure what to expect but i have to say it was one of the best Indian meals my partner and I have eaten. We had Chicken Tandoori & egg rice and King Prawn Dhansak & mushroom rice which were both excellent. Prices... More

Indian food that tastes nice, but not quite as great as I remember from living next to the curry mile in Manchester 25 years ago. In my opinion half way between 3 and 4 stars, I chose 3 since the food was far less spicy than we expected (the taste was OK).

Me and my boyfriend went to elephant &castle shopping centre but before long we found ourselves starved. Looking around for someplace that appealed to our appetite we were lured in by the all day £5.95 Indian buffet sign. Once inside it turned out that the price for a non vegetarian buffet was in fact £10 (or so). We went for... More
