“Working in the Area”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We have been working in Bristol, and came across Urban Tandoor. We were made extremely welcome by Sugeet and his staff, the food is wonderful, and the restaurant is a relaxing oasis. I would recommend it to anyone.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

Went early evening and was quite busy with couples and a few large groups.
Staff very attentive and polite
Nice restaurant
Took my order very quickly & drink arrived with a courtesy popadom.
How ever the was a considerable wait for my starter but this was recognised by the manager and he apologised and gave me a free drink
Food good & hot
I would have scored it higher but toilets need decorating & are very dirty.
I would consider going back if they refurb end the toilets.

“Excellent food but slow”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Food was excellent as stated in previous reviews. My issue was the service. I was part of a group of 9 on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant wasn't busy but it still took 90 minutes for the starters to arrive. There was also a delay with the main courses. If they had said it was all being cooked from scratch I would have tolerated it but we weren't. all was got was 'yes, its coming'. A shame because it was worth waiting for but, by then, my interest in it had gone.

Respected Sir,

Thanks for your review.

Going by your Title "Excellent food but slow", am happy with the first half which says excellent food as our Chef takes great pride in offering the best in the competitive market.

With regards to the second half which says Slow service, we will take that as a constructive criticism and definitely work on it.

We are a young and dynamic team in Urban Tandoor always striving to be the best in the Market.

Would be great if you give us another chance to show you our best.

And also apologies for the speed of service you may have received on that particular day.

Looking forward to serve you soon.

Many thanks,

Kind regards,

Sujith D'almeida

“Great food!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

If you are looking for great tasting Indian food then Urban Tandoor is definitely the place to go. Delicious food, great presentation, lovely service and very quiet and cosy restaurant, which is very nice balance between the really cheap looking or overdone places I have been to before. It is a real pleasure to have a meal there. Highly recommended!
