We booked this restaurant and received confirmation!
We then travelled over an hour, looking forward to an enjoyable lunch, only to arrive at an empty restaurant (except for staff who were eating a meal), and were told that they closed within an hour and they had no record of our booking!
I still have the confirmation email...but we did not receive an apology! We felt we were intruding: needless to say, we will NEVER return...and let this be a warning to anyone even considering going to Tiger Garden in Marlow.

Tasty food but service felt rushed even though the restaurant was nearly empty. Although the food was good, it was expensive- £70 for 2 people with 1 beer!

The food service was rushed and the waiter had to be asked three times for a simple beer. Food was ok, nothing special. Somewhat disappointed. Marlow has great food options, they really need to improve

Out for dinner with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while and I just felt like the staff wanted us out quickly. Had only been eating popadoms for 10 minutes before the mains arrived and we had to just get on with it. It then felt like every 5 minutes someone came over to check if we’d finished our main. After telling two waiters we wanted to keep going we just gave up and let our plates be taken away. Never ever felt so rushed to eat anywhere before and sadly will not be returning.

Really good food
Service average- waiters a touch surly and not very attentive- no happy check
Service included in bill could be the cause of this as no mileage in them putting in that extra effort
Not a cheap meal but to be fair couldn’t fault anything we were served
Was visiting Marlow for the weekend
Would I return ?
Unlikely as the cab driver informed us on way back to hotel that there are 2 better restaurants in town so if I was to ever return to Marlow would quite probably try them

As ever, excellent food prepared on the premises, attentive (but not over attentive service), crisp white linen napkins and tablecloths - no wonder it was packed.

I would have like to have given 5 stars as the food was very nice and I would return to try other items on the menu. We had the mixed platter as a starter and was disappointed that considering it contained sheek kebab & tikka it was brought out on the plate, not sizzling with onions which we have had elsewhere. Therefore, it was Luke warm and not as appetising. The mains were lovely! Service was hit and miss...the majority of staff were so friendly, however a couple were extremely miserable which was a little uncomfortable. I do appreciate the rugby had taken place that day and it was busy so it was a shame this may have reflected in the level of quality in food & service.

It was not something to remember. We have diner at restaurants in and out of Open-table but this is the one place that we find rude. Food was average and oily, bit dull. Service was touch and go! Place cold and table congested. As well the restaurant seem to not understand/ accept open-table cheque even when tried to explain. Feel let down as this was a special occasion we were eagerly looking forward

Good food and service at a fair price, only small critisum was that the service charge was included in the bill.
I would rather reward the staff according to the service provided, which on this occasion was very good!

we have visited Tiger Garden many times since the day it opened. Always reliable, and food has got even better in the past year, and presentation of dishes also has got better - maybe they have a new chef ? Gets busy on Friday and Saturday nights and can take a while for food, so we go early on (between 7-8pm) and its fairly fast at that time.

Although the ambience was nice and comfortable the food and menu was not anything different to any other Indian restaurant. The service was too full on and both my guest and I felt very much as though we were being raced through the meal in order to leave the table as early as possible. Will not be recommending this as a place to eat as the the evening was a special one for us and the staff made it feel as though we were not welcome and merely a table that needed to be cleared quickly.

Food distinctly average, lamb tikka over cooked. Staff overly attentive, hardly got an opportunity to talk amongst ourselves. Also appeared to be a little irritated if we didn't make choices quickly enough.

Unlikely to visit again.

Worst place we have ever been to from food to service and ambience. We booked the table on your website and on our arrival they said there was no reservation. They then accommodated us at the end of the building where they have Some tables in a marque attached to the building with 2 electric heaters providing little heat, it was -1 outside. When we complained and asked to move inside the restaurant we were told the 4-5 separate tables were all reserved. We found out that these tables were kept free in the hope off a larger group arriving! When we ordered tap water we were told they have a problem with the water! They clearly wanted us to buy bottled water. The food was also dreadful and when we complained about the quality of the food no offer was made to correct or replace it. We then had to wait so long for the bill and at this point we were so cold that we then complained bitterly. When we told them we didn't want to pay the service charge they started had the audacity to complain! How this place, terrible in so many ways, is still in business I have no idea. Avoid big time!

An excellent and relaxed dining experience. The food was absolutely delicious and the the service was both very polite and timely. My wife and I can't wait to return and enjoy an alternative choice of the delightful food. also, we shall definitely recommend The Tiger Garden to our friends and relations.

Very nice Indian curry restaurant in Marlow, Bucks. food presentation, quality and generous portion size is of a high standard and nothing to complain about.

The ambience and decor is also nice and of a high standard with no after pub closing boozy eaters.

Only negative would be I feel pricing is high for a curry reasturant. Perhaps this is reflecting the location, etc.

Went to the Tiger Garden for a meal with a couple of friends and were very disappointed with the entire experience. The restaurant was fine, but there were only two other parties seated in the entire restaurant and we were seated on the table right next to one of the other parties rather than elsewhere (possibly to heighten a sense of ambience in an otherwise dead restaurant). The lacklustre staff took their time to take our order, and it was delivered with absolutely no enthusiasm whatsoever. The food itself was utterly disappointing with very little flavour, apart from the charred edges of my lamb. Added to all of this, the fact that they added 10% to the bill automatically for 'service' was taking liberties as there was very little done to add to the experience. We certainly won't be returning.

Went as a couple for birthday celebration. Food ok but served by bored and disinterested staff. 10% service charge already added to bill. Decor all a it dated. Know of many better Indian restaurants within the neighbourhood so no reason to return.

Birthday celebration that was a damp squib due to food and attitude of staff at the Tiger Garden.

No sizzle in the shishlak, No umpf in the chilli and garlic chicken, less than warm other dishes served to other members of our party. Off hand attitude of the waiter when we commented on the food as he had to take it away stating 'well you have five minutes'.

Abrupt and intimidating manager when we complained about the food and the final bill of £94.

I would neither recommend or go back to the Tiger Garden.
