My wife and I recently had a meal here on a Sunday evening. This was our third visit. The food was generally of good quality and you could really taste the subtle seasoning of the different dishes although the Pilau rice and Poppadoms were average. The service lacked any friendliness and this was a shame. maybe it is time to try the other establishments in Westbourne?

Fantastic value for money and the food was absolutely delicious. Nothing more to say than one of the best curries I have had in a long time

My sister visited The Westbourne Tandoori before me (she came to stay for a few days) and had nothing but praise. And, boy, is she fussy!

We tried the restaurant soon afterwards and have become regulars. I have always found the food to be excellent and very good value for the price. The decor is definitely of the 'old school' Indian restaurant variety - not quite flock wallpaper, but not far off. The restuarant if also quite dark. But, with the good food they serve, this really doesn't matter. We have visited with friends, too, and they have also enjoyed the food immensely.

However, I have deducted a star because, when this place gets busy - it gets busy! There can be a very lengthy wait for a table (even if you have booked!), and the staff do seem to get a bit stressed when the place is full (and there are takeaway orders, too). As a rule, we try to get there just before 7pm, and then there is usually no problem.

The Westbourne Tandoori does not offer a home delivery service, but they give a discount for takeaways.

So, lovely food, and service usually very good.
