After a few drinks in Morpeth we, two couples, decided to go for a meal at the Tandoor Mahal. After a drink and the usual complimentary bombay mix in a booth at the bar we were taken to our table, the restaurant was deserted, most unusual for a Saturday evening, only then did we realise how late it was and that we had been competely unaware of the time. We appreciated that whilst many waiters would have rushed us or we would have picked up negative vibes the staff at the Tandoor Mahal made no attempt to rush us. The meal was of the usual high standard, particularly the pilau rice and naan breads which are second to none.

We ate in the restaurant last year whilst on holiday in the area (Sept 2012) and the food and service were excellent. We returned to the area for holiday this year but with a newborn baby in tow, we opted for a takeaway which did not disappoint. We had sheek kebab starter which were so tasty followed by a perfectly spiced Chicken Tikka Madras and Chicken Tikka Biryani. The naan breads are excellent too! Will definitely go again when back in the area :)

Visited Tandoor Mahal on 25th September 2013 when looking for somewhere different to eat. Had already seen the good reviews of this place so thought we would give it a go.

Great service with friendly staff, not overbearing and seemed genuinely grateful for our custom which makes a nice change (compared to some other places). Complimentary poppadoms with lime pickle etc were a great touch followed by our tikka chicken starters, very nice tender pieces of chicken with salad and great sauce. For main courses we had vegetable dansak with plain rice and tikka chicken madras with egg pilau rice, both dishes were delicious. The tikka chicken madras had huge pieces of chicken and the madras sauce although hot was not too powerful.

Overall, fantastic little place with friendly staff, nice atmosphere and very reasonable. Will definitely be visiting again soon.

We have tried all of the Indian restaurants in Morpeth and this is the best by far. Staff are good and the food has always been good quality and fresh.

Not much needed to be said for this place, great food at a good price.

Staying in Morpeth for a few days to visit Northumberland we'd struggled to to find good eating but on our last night the Tandoor Mahal broke the trend. The staff were so friendly and the food fantastic. The portion size more than filled us both up (which can be a challenge), the onion bhaji starter was lovely, the mains were very tasty and full of tender meats. The pickle tray could benefit from a mint but that is a small request not a fault. Finally the naan bread was the best I've ever had, not greasy, stodgy or dry - just light and full of sweet garlic.
