“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

It's a long time since I last visited the Tandoori International, but I think I'll become a more frequent diner. I visited with family for a birthday party, Excellent food, all served at he same time so we were all able to eat at he same time and share the wonderful selection of dishes. The restaurant itself is spotlessly clean, good decor with efficient waiters. The only down side is large tv screens playing constantly which is annoying and distracting, Please GET RID of them the serve no useful purpose at all.

“Great Indian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

The service is great, we were a large party but our food was all correct and in a timely manner! We all enjoyed our food and felt it was good value for money! Will definitely be back!

“Excellent Indian Restuarant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good service and great food. One of my favourite restaurants in Ocean Road. Only down side is the acoustics - sometimes if there are noisy groups in there is such a din which echoes around the room, sometimes you can't hear yourself speak! So we tend to go early because we like the food. One of a few Indian restaurants without intimate booths.

“Good meal at a reasonable price ...spoilt by poor service!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

It's a while since we last visited the Royal but apart from having undergone a refurbishment nothing much else has changed since our last visit. The food is good ...but the service is very poor ! Our party of 6 were given a table beside the entrance door and every time the door opened we were treated to an Arctic blast off Ocean Rd ! I asked if we could be moved to another empty table because of this only to be told "sorry that only seats 5 and there are 6 of you !" The fact that our table of 8 had 2 spare seats was obviously irrelevant to the head waiter ! Regrettably we had to wait at least 40 mins before our starters arrived.The food once it arrived however was of a good standard. The Royal offered a good 3 course menu (c) for £9.99 for a Sat night, however this could be improved if they had an alternative dessert to ice cream or coffee !! The recent refurbishment has brightened up the restaurant but it is now dazzlingly bright and quite noisy.It appeared to us that the Royal attracts regular patrons ...and that they seemed to get better service than the casual walk in off the street customer. Would only recommend you to visit this restaurant if time is not a problem for you ...it may be some time before we go back !!!
