“Little gem.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

This small restaurant is a little gem. The décor plain but clean, the service good and staff helpful. They will explain dishes that make trying some thing new more fun. Never had a bad meal. Tell them what you like and they will point you to things on the menu you may like to try. I miss the old wall paintings, and do think they have gone too plain. Put the service always friendly. We will be back and trying something new.

“Total let down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

My wife and i had the miss fortune to go to shadwell tandoori last night ,the decor is on a par with
a transport cafe, the staff looked as if they had been dragged threw a hedge backwards and
under the table was not clean and i could not comment on the food as i did not stay long enough
to eat. Do these people not realise that you only get one chance to make a first impression.

“A real let down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

We visited Shadwell Tandoori on a Monday evening. We had not booked but were immediately shown to a table. The menu was quite extensive so there was certainly plenty to choose from. For starter I chose the Lamb tikka and hubby had the mixed kebabs. My lamb was dry and tough and I suspect had been pre-cooked. The kebabs were OK but nothing exceptional.

The biggest disappointment was the main course. I had the Bangla Garlic, hubby had Shah Jahan and a side order of brinjal dahl. Very different dishes but all were orange in colour - it could be coincidence but I couldn't help thinking the same sauce was being used for everything.

The service was excellent and the staff very friendly but this was not enough to compensate for a disappointing meal. There are a number of alternatives within a couple of miles which I would select in preference to Shadwell Tandoori.

“Excellent !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Visited this restaurant in Feb 2014. I am of Asian origin and don't normally visit restaurants from Indian subcontinent. I had to write to tell you the food was excellent. The service was exemplary and the ambience very relaxing. They have an extensive menu and if you are a vegetarian, then they can do most dishes with a veggie theme. highly recommended.

“Nice ambience, great food and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

It's been many years since I went there and then it really was quite drab with very ordinary food. Thought we'd give it another go and... Wow! Had a great meal in the refurbished restaurant. Lovely food, very friendly staff, prompt service and very we'll priced. It gets my strong recommendation.
