It was a miserably cold day in Berwick and we were hungry and in need of warmth. We popped in to the historic and beautifully kept local institution that is magna tandoori . What better place to go to satisfy ones hunger? It was lunchtime and my husband and I had the tandoori chicken and the chicken kurma which were cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. We would like to commend Mr Khan and his dedicated team of staff for their wonderful food and second to none hospitality.

“Not sure what the fuss is about”
Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Went here on our first night as its number one. The atmosphere was unremarkable and the service was a little stuffy.

We had a couple of the venison dishes my partners was over salted. Not sure we would come back again.

Can't wait to come back to Berwick for a return visit ..
Actually, as we are only about 1 & 1/2 hrs drive, I reckon we will be back VERY soon!
