Location and contact

Takdir can be translated to mean 'luck' or 'destiny'. This Indian restaurant has been running successfully under the same ownership since 1979. Mamzy and Suff have taken over from their father of the day to day running of the business. With them around they make it a very calm, easy and relaxed atmosphere to be in. They do whatever they can to make your experience memorable and make you feel like... your at home away from home. Takdir is perfectly situated on East Parade, as it looks out onto the sea and after a windswept walk, or even drive along the seafront it can be quite inviting.

Best ever Indian cuisine. Excellent service, location , restaurant and value. Visited at 7 pm in the evening with work colleagues. One colleague had food allergy and he was catered for individually. Would definitely come back and highly recommend a visit

We visited the Takdir with our 5 year old daughter and they couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The food was delicious, with a special mention to the Naan bread which was amazing. Can't fault the waiting staff. We can't wait to return 👌🏼
