About

Tangawizi restaurant in London’s East Twickenham, close to Richmond Bridge, earned the well-heeled locals’ devotion right from the off. The chef is ‘trained by and strongly recommended by Vineet Bhatia’ and that’s saying quite a lot. The dining room is very smart, mood-enhancingly lit in saffron and blackberry with details of beautiful sari fabric inlaid in the tables. Dishes are authentic North Indian, but cutting-edge and contemporary, the way we Londoners like them: the freshest of ingredients, little oil, sparkling flavours. Try the mixed platter of starters to share to really browse the possibilities, then choose something like spicy marinated red snapper in tempura batter served with cheddar and Parmesan risotto, with one of the lovely dahls on the side. The traditionally-clad waitstaff are very attentive and the whole experience a winner.

Professional and nice staff, warm atmosphere, nice interiors. However, the was quite inauthentic and westernised. It was nicely presented, nothing too oily or salty, but didn't have the depth or punch of real Indian cuisine, was all a bit underwhelming. Nice staff and very pleasant atmosphere though.

Tangawizi is in the Good Food Guide with a rating of 2 so I was disappointed to find that the food was fairly mediocre. All the curries seemed to have the same tomato based sauce as though this is poured over precooked meat or seafood. Even vegetable curry tasted the same. Yet prices were on a par or more expensive than much better Indian restaurants like Potli. A big disappointment apart from the smiling and friendly service.

Honestly the worse curry i have eaten in a restaurant. It wasn't bad exactly, but just a bit bland and unsatisfying; i have had better from super market ready meals.

The staff were so attentive that we actually felt rushed through out the meal. Someone came to take our drink order, then less than a minute later someone different came to take it again, lastly a third member of staff came to take our drink order within the space of 5 mins. It was nuts! This theme continued throughout the meal with our food and dessert orders also.

The food then came while we were still making our way through the popadoms, meaning we still had a full table that quickly had to be hurried away before we had finished.

I have been to a fair few excellent Indian restaurants (for frankly less money) but this was not one of them.

A great curry menu - better than the usual run-of-the-mill Indian cuisine. Opt for the set meals - these offer a good mix of flavours.

Staff very attentive food was good. The dips that went with popadoms where very small to share with a table of five. The layout of the restaurant feels like your in a corridor with staff moving past the tables with trays of food all the time. The cosy corner they had was only for couples. Overall we enjoyed my sons 30th birthday dinner and would visit again. (If we get a table in the cosy corner)

We had a really lovely evening celebrating Mother’s Day at Tangawizi.
We often get takeaways, but haven’t eaten in the restaurant for quite a while and it was great!
We were so well looked after by the staff, and all the food was tasty and delicate.
And we particularly enjoyed the pani puri starter, ice cream parlour pudding and chocolate martini!
