“Not for diabetics”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

Only visited ToB because Dream curry,just up the road, was disappointingly closed .
Unlike years back,when this place would have been packed to the gunwales,it was only reasonably busy & we had no problem getting a table.
Apart from the owner,who is always friendly,the staff were an unhappy bunch of the "I wish I wasn't here " variety.
Our meals were delivered very rapidly,no waiting about here.
Sadly the food was a shadow of it's former self.
Both our main meals were so sweet as to be almost sickening,perhaps they're sponsored by Tate & Lyle?
Also the Chana Masala was served covered in a pink sauce,in the style if Chicken Tikka Massala & was also very sweet.
As others have mentioned the ToB does seem to be a little less expensive than the numerous other Hornchurch Indians,& if this is your main concern then perhaps this is the place for you.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for quality Indian food then I suggest you look elsewhere,unless you have a very sweet tooth.
