The food was ok but have been to many better Indian restaurants. Staff were friendly though waitress inexperienced and couldn't offer advice. Prices average. Will try another one in Sidmouth next time

This is a restaurant well worth a visit, more for the food than the restaurant which is compact. Actually it is quite busy generally and that is always a good sign. Brilliant food though.

All the chat on here about this being chaotic and dreary decor makes laugh like a hyena because correct me if I am wrong but restaurants are ultimately about the food and how anyone can fail to give this food 5 big stars is possibly not the same species as me. Now I have been to this quaint but basic... More

Being from North London, I'm surrounded by nice Indian takeaways but whenever I go on my annual holiday to Sidmouth with the family I always make sure I go to the Sidmouth Tandoori. Their Chicken Vindaloo is heavenly, flavour is incredible and the lumps of chicken you get is unrivalled. Usually get a side dish of their Bombay aloo which... More

The menu was absolutely standard for a Bengali-run budget Indian restaurant. The portions were generous, the food tasty but nothing out of the ordinary. The service was prompt, and the prices were reasonable. Good for a quick meal.

Visited this small Indian Restaurant with locals who visit often. Super menu with well cooked food. You can take your own beer and wine! Friendly owners who greeted us well.

Before you go for the first time, you need to know and please, not worry about this restaurant and take away being completely chaotic (yet friendly). Decor is simple in this small restaurant (where you take your own alcoholic drinks) and a long snake of customers waiting patiently (or not) for their take aways oddly adds to, rather than detracts...

We booked a table as this is very small and was highly recommended by our guest house. We arrived early but this did not phase the owner who managed to clear us a space. The meal came quickly, despite the restaurant being full and my curry expert friend said it was one of the best he had ever had. I... More

There are two Indian restaurants in Sidmouth and it is a very close call between the two as to which one is best. But in my opinion the Sidmouth Tandoori just edges it. It's small and you have to take your own booze (bonus in my opinion), but the food is spot on and the service is prompt and polite.... More
