2nd visit to Tandoor Chop House and it didn’t disappoint. Lovely onion bhaji rings. Highlights for the mains were black pepper chicken (so succulent), rib eye beef and butter chicken naan. Really tasty food. Busy buzzy restaurant with attentive service and great that you can book a table. We spent 1 hour 15 mins there for dinner and a bottle of wine (no dessert).

My Dad was the first chef to have an Indian restaurant listed in the Good Food Guide but some of the flavours here even surpassed his.
Amazing meal but too noisy to indulge in conversation with our friends, this wouldn’t stop me from coming back!

Second visit to the chop house. Great food good atmosphere. I I’ll definitely go again.
Could be improved slightly by having more bottled rather than canned beer.

Not your usual Indian, very good food fresh and tasty (not somewhere to go if you're after your usual korma and rice), it was a Friday night in London with a large group inside so was quite loud but did not spoil the atmosphere, quick friendly service would recommend.

Fab food and service. The only gripe is the price of drinks and only small cans of beer available. Still we keep coming back because the food is so good.

Food was delicious - the waiter was really helpful when we asked for recommendations. The lamb chops were amazing and the TAP red wine was surprisingly nice too. We got there quite early on a Friday but it filled up and had a nice atmosphere. Will go back!

Name had a friend and I pulled in to try out. Never again. The waitress was extremely rude. First came to our table and just said “Hi”. I responded, Hi, how are you this evening”. Seemingly something a waitress or waiter should ask. She said “bad, and for this to go well to night you need to be nice to me and get along. Everyone in here is being mean to me.”

Really, everyone is being mean to you? Is that the intro you have had to every table? Can’t imagine how the evening went well. She proceeded to mostly ignore us and her other tables requiring us to flag down the host to pay and ask for another drink.

The food was marginal at best- DO NOT go expecting to get Chicken Tikka Masala or other traditional Indian dishes. You will be disappointed. The food is more of a pub style grill with an Indian name and Indian inspired dishes. I have been to India three times and in fact was dining with my Indian friend here.

My friend sat facing the kitchen and could view the takeaway food being packed- let’s just say, find your takeaway at another restaurant.

Really disappointed in the service and the food overall. The only redeeming factor was a decent ambiance. I don’t do reviews on here, but this experience was so disappointing I had too. If you see this come up on a suggestion, take a HARD pass.

Good food but overall experience really let down by the service. Staff were abrasive and didn’t seem like they had much experience. Left waiting for long periods of time and split food down one of our party and didnt apologise.

This is the third time I’ve been to the tandoor and I can’t wait to go back.
It’s small but perfect, the food is different to anything else but absolutely brilliant and the service is superb.
We over ordered significantly and never had an empty glass and was still great value

Great service, great food, superb all around. The meats were especially delicious as were the naan. In my opinion, the vegetable plates we got were not on the same level as the meats. The cauliflower was pretty good but the side seasonal greens were a little disappointing.

My husband came here based on the many positive reviews, but we weren’t blown away by the food. We had the tandoor chicken and the house special lamb. The lamb flavours wasn’t to our liking. The chicken was good, but not outstanding. Overall, food was okie.

Enjoyed the Amritsari lamb chops and tandoori chicken on the bone was excellent, however, thought the lamb ribs were fatty and service was very slow but apparently this was because it was Father's Day. Desserts were a pleasant surprise.

Great restaurant. My only complaint was the seating. They attempted to put us in a bizarre table setup with one person off to the side so we asked for another table. They moved us to another table but told us that we needed to be out by 18:30 because the table was reserved for then. We had theater tickets and it was only 17:00 at the time so we said fine. We also had reservations though but I guess our reservations weren't as good as someone else's.

Anyways, food was really excellent. Strange that rice was not provided but lower carbs is better.
