Lovely decor and feel to the restaurant but service was truly disappointing. Clearly the staff were in a rush to close up as we saw them scrubbing down tables with soap and sponge whilst guests still ate at tables around them. I even said we’ve never been before so some help on how to order would’ve been useful. Even saw the young waitress point out to her male colleague that customer was ready to pay and so he shud hurry up and take payment! As a result, we felt food was average. We had just been to theatre and it would’ve been nice to see happy and smiling members of staff. I wouldn’t go again and won’t recommend either. Dishoom for me I’m afraid.

The food was so delicious- mouth watering meat, and beautiful naan breads! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Waiters were very attentive and also provided us with great recommendations and how many dishes we should pick! Can’t wait to go back!

Booked this restaurant after a recommendation for dinner post a matinee performance. We arrived early and the owner was very helpful and found a table for us. All staff were v friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic; fresh tasting and good sized portions. It was great finding somewhere unique in such a touristy area. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

Not bad, ambiance was nice and cosy and quite vibey with the open kitchen and clay ovens. The location is great.

The starters were probably our favourite and tasty, but the mains let the meal down. While the kitchen does the meat well, the vegetarian options are not great. Both our veg options were pretty much uncooked inside.

Although their is a great option of naans and tasty- we found them quite small ( less then half the size of a normal tandoori place)

So all in all a bit gimmicky- if you are a true tandoori food fan.

Fantastic food but such poor service. It’s very rare (very) that I refuse to pay the ‘optional service’ but on this occasion... it took 20 plus mins to get a drink (the wrong ones arrived) and every time we wanted to attract our waiter it was so difficult given the restaurant space is quite small. The other staff were fine and covered ok but it didn’t make for a relaxing evening. We will however return to give them a second chance as the food really was truly superb.

Easy online booking. Fairly limited menu but everything we tried was excellent. The kebab starter, the chilli naan and the eponymous tandoori chops were particular highlights. My only criticism is that the tables are small and very close together and the high level of background noise meant that conversation with my dinner guest was difficult! Highly recommended food-wise!

Second visit here and had a brilliant time. Booked the table for 6:30pm and had a relaxed atmosphere and quick service (no waiting for hours this time so I think the first visit was an anomaly). Wonderful chops and the moorish tikka chicken was ordered again as a top up half way through our meal, and the chaat was amazing. But the kulfi must be the best desert I’ve had in an Indian restaurant. Truly honed what I’m going to eat at my next visit!

Thali Sunday’s will now be a staple in my life. The range of flavours and dishes on the Thali were incredible! Big enough for 2 or more to share at £25 is an absolute bargain in London. Highlighy recommend this experience to all. Service was a little slow and our first waiter was pretty useless but once the food came, all that was forgotten. Definitely coming back here again!

I was very excited to try the Sunday Thali at Tandoor Chop House. Unfortunately the experience did not live up to what I had hoped. The service was poor and inattentive - the restaurant wasn't that busy so there was no excuse. We had to ask a few times to order drinks and then food. The thali was just plonked down on our table with no explanation of what the different dishes were. There were some desserts in the thali so we accidentally ate these as we didn't know what was on our plate. The food was OK but we probably would have enjoyed it much more if we'd actually known what we were eating. We booked Tandoor Chop House for our anniversary but it's a shame the experience was average.

Booked a table for 2 for quickens mid-week lunch for myself and a friend from work. We both ordered from the lunchtime thali menu. This offers a good selection and is good value, especially tasty. The nimbu pani (Indian Lemonade) is especially refreshing. I would recommend.
