I dined here with my friends for a meal, and the service was excellent! The manager, waitresses as well as other staff were very friendly. The music and vibe was really delightful, very relaxing. I have been to many Indian restaurants and might I say...Alamin Tandori was by far my favourite. The food was really flavourful. It was finger-licking good! As well as the desserts. The prices are very reasonable as well! I highly recommend this restaurant!More

found this retaurant by accident while away working in bedford for a few days and all i can say is wow, the restaurant itself isnt all that great from outside and to be honest could do with a lick of paint, inside again the decor...could do with a freshen up but having said that its all about the food, service and value for money and all 3 were for me 10/10 best prawn dupioza ive ever had and my partners chicken was so moist he loved it and hes very very fussy. Sam the waitress was very knoweladgeble about the menu, was quietly in the background and not constantly hovering like some other restaurants, polite and friendly. If im ever in the area again will definetly call in again. xxMore

I came here for the first time about a year ago and since then have celebrated a few birthdays at the restaurant. Really friendly owner, always makes you feel welcome. Really like the atmosphere as not overly crowded. Nice food, really like their king prawn...madras. Reasonable price - would defo recommend if looking for a nice quiet curry out.More

The restaurant coped very well with our large group of customers - staff were cheerful and attentive. Food was very good with some dishes that I'd never seen before: chot potti (spicy chickpea soup) made a welcome addition to the starters menu and was very...tasty indeed.More

Friendly and helpful staff. Very good service. Enjoyable good. A little tatty and dated inside. A bit expensive, although I will be going back, as it's one of my favourite restaurants in Bedford.

I made an order on their own website, and received a confirmation email confirming it would arrive within 1 hour. 1 and a half hours later...we decide to call to politely ask if it’s almost here as we are starving. The person on the line...rudely tells me we haven’t made an order. After 2 minutes of shouting between staff he says “oh yes I can see your order, we haven’t done it. We’ll start now and it’ll be an hour”. No apology. No explanation. I am extremely angry and say I expect a discount for this massive error. The staff member says no and hangs up on me. I called back and asked to speak to the manager, and get the same treatment. No apology, just a brusque “we didn’t see the order, it’ll be there in 1 hour and you’ll pay full price”. Well, we looked elsewhere and found Radhuni restaurant would deliver in 45 minutes. We placed an order and it arrived in 30! I cancelled the Alamin order, which they suddenly seemed to care about.... Radhuni was really fantastic. 5 starsMore

Fairly good curry though portion a bit small, definitely short on curry sauce. Ended up with 1/4 a plate of dry rice. Would be a 4 if more sauce had been on offer.

You can't question their food, but then again there's a lot of competition in tavistock street. What we look for in a curry house more than anything is a warming atmosphere, something that alamin doesn't offer. 3 times now we've walked in and been greeted...by what I assume is the owner. He seems to be the only one working here most nights and to be honest puts a dampner on the evening from the get go. He pushes alcohol on the 4 of us, despite the fact that none of us drink, and tries to get us to order more poppadoms than we want. When we put him straight and order soft drinks with 1 poppadom each he seems to go off in a huff. When it comes to the food order it takes him about 5 minutes to get it right after all the mishearing and questions. The food itself is fine, certainly can't complain about that which is probably why we've been back 3 times, but the overall service is extremely uncomfortable. I'd recommend the naganzi if you could be bothered with the confrontation. At the end of the meal we were presented with a large book where we were told to write a review with him even watching us. There's probably a reason why there's never any customers in here. I'll stick to deshi spice or Indian summer where the staff can't do enough for you, don't get in a strop when you want a Coke and serve food just as good if not better. We spend 70-80 quid in curry houses so it's not as if we just go for the cheapest things. I'll be avoiding this place from now on, or maybe just ordering a takeaway from it instead.More
