Even so the Tandoori International stands out as 'Superb' in this competitive location of eateries - the majority of them Indian restaurants. We have been coming here for over 12 years and can honestly say we have never had a bad experience. The food is fabulous. The staff... More

We chose TI because it looked to be the cleanest and most presentable Indian on Ocean Road. The staff were very attentive and quickly resolved a problem with the order. The food was quite delicious.

I go a couple of times a month and have done so for around 8 years. Never had a bad meal, waiting staff are attentive and friendly. Always willing to advise on a dish. Great restaurant.

Consistently excellent food: whole family enjoyed it. Staff are brilliant also, very attentive and friendly along with quick service. Only bit of feedback would be to dim the lights slightly. Very bright and lowers atmosphere.
