Having tried to get such item from surrounding shops without success, I... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times over the past year and the food has been OK. But the last two times were bad experiences. The first time, we ordered 2 pints of Cobra, but realised it was very pale in colour and tasted of water.. We asked to exchange the pints and yet again, the same. We... More

Following bad hygiene reports from our usual haunt we tried here Wow we should have tried here before as the food was in a different league and the service also very good and value for money. We have a new Venue for our monthly get together now

We visited the restaurant on a Bank Holiday Saturday as a family get together and the meal was ruined by terrible management/service. We had a table booked for 8pm and having arrived on time were told to wait. Fifteen minutes later, another group entered the restaurant, and asked for a table despite not booking, and were seated immediately! At 8.20pm... More

Went on a Saturday at about 7pm with my wife and our 9 year old daughter. After ordering, we waited over an hour and still no food. After being told it would be "5 minutes" about 10 minutes earlier, I spoke with the manager. I told him we'd be waiting for an hour and 5 minutes for our food, and... More

We've never eat in the restaurant but we've had takeaway from here on a number of occasions and it has always been very good quality and very reasonably priced. The staff are friendly on the phone and delivery times are good.

We have visited 3 times in as many months and each time the service and food have been very good. Relaxed family restaurant, happy to adapt dishes to your particular preferences, nicely spiced food and quality meat. The prawn balti was particularly delicious with a rich sauce and just cooked prawns, we chose chapati over nan bread and also tried... More

Been coming to Leigh Tandoori regularly for roughly the last 10 years. I have also visited a VAST number of other Indian restaurants in my time and Leigh Tandoori is certainly right up there. The Chicken Katmandu is to die for, had one last night and still feel happy with myself! The owners Nigel and Tony are always happy to... More
