Tandoor Chop House is the meeting of a North Indian communal eatery and a classic British chop house. It brings together the characteristics of these two traditional restaurants. the tandoor ovens, Indian spices and marinades, select prime cuts of meat, and buzzing atmosphere. The result is a place diners can come to socialise over drinks and share plates of hearty, comforting food. *Please note that our chicken is halal **Our Sunday Mighty Thali menu is only available on Sunday's from 1-4pm (last orders are taken at 3.45 pm)

The tandoor oven was filing the restaurant with smoke making for an unpleasant experience

Completely over priced for tiny portions. The drinks were also over priced. Felt very rushed at the meal the bill was given as soon as our plates was taken.

Wanted Indian cuisine in London near our hotel & booked a reservation based on reviews.
European seating in an energetic setting, the regular diners next to us gave us excellent food & wine recommendations.
Will definitely seek out this restaurant on future trips.

Decent food, terrible service. I refused to pay service charge, and the waitress had the cheek to ask where her tip was. So I constructively explained why she wasnt receiving one. I have never been asked to pay a service which was shocking. Expect to be rushed.

We had such an amazing lunch for my husbands birthday. We three ordered starters and a couple of mains. The hostess serving us was super helpful, she recommended switching a couple of things we ordered so we had variety and also helped us from over ordering. The food was delicious and was brought out in authentic serving dishes. We also tried the Nimbu Pani from the drinks menu which complimented the food and finished off with masala chai. We cannot wait to come back again!

Great little place very friendly service -food is really interesting, fantastic veggie options (note not a standard Indian menu) wonderfully imaginative, small plates and the black dahl, sensational on our visit. Do try black dahl but as small plates already generous and filling, no need for many extras.
Industrial environment but with some really comfortable two person booths, very nice arrangement if you know to book and ask for one!
Good for pretheatre or post matinees, great location for Strand theatres and Charing Cross in cooler weather when Covent Garden a bit too far. Very strict slots as gets very busy -popular for a reason so don’t be late!!

Here's the thing - would I recommend TCH to someone else? Absolutely; you need to try the food. It is just that everything else around that... yeah, not as good.

But the food, oh the food... the black dahl is worth going for alone, the tandoori rabbit leg (tastes like chicken) is divine, the bone marrow naan is probably the best thing I've eaten for months. You need to go and try things for yourself - it will be worth it, trust me.

What you might not enjoy is being crammed in to a tiny little corner of the restaurant on a table the size of a postage stamp, where the arrival of every course requires a rearrangement of the things already on the table and a game of 'what can I stack this on top of' before you can settle down to eating.

Maybe I just got unlucky with where we were sat, but it kind of soured the overall experience for me. But the food deserves all the plaudits it gets - it really is that good.

Food was okay, I tho k the lunch menu is expensive for what it is. The service was terrible. 3 waiters were working and only 1 was doing any work. The other 2 seemed more senior but were just standing around making themselves look busy. Will not return

It is honestly the best Indian food we have ever eaten and we eat it a lot. The flavouring is mouth-wateringly good. I could not fault the whole experience aside from the fact it had to come to an end. I would go back there now if I could!

Depends on the occasion of the visit - you can have a different experience. Food arrives slow. Staff are friendly. Food is good, but not amazing.
