Thought we'd try our local Indian restaurant but big mistake... yes, the food was tasty and well cooked however it was expensive and the staff pushed the most expensive meals. We were charged over £14 for chutney and sundries and even for the takeaway bag !! I was shocked ... plus a mandatory 12.5% service charge. We ended up paying... More

Having lived in the area for around 6 years we've seen restaurants come and go. This one has stuck it out and it's brilliant. Smashing food and the closest to what we tasted on our trips to India, so to us it feels authentic. The staff are incredibly friendly and work hard to make sure you have a good meal,... More

I've been coming fairly regularly for the last 18months and I love it. The service here is phenomenal, and the waiters are extremely attentive. I've had nothing but good experiences, and can strongly recommend the Goan Goat Curry.

Looking at all the previous reviews, maybe they had a bad day... I had two very basic curries and I questioned the quality of the meat and the seasoning of the food. We didn't finish the food and I mentioned to the manager that we didn't enjoy the food. He advised me that he's been doing this for "40 years"... More

This is my favourite place to have a curry, the food is beautiful, and full of lovely flavour. I eat regular and I am never disappointed, the staff are very friendly and chatty, with a great sense of humour. It's also a very good price for the area

Not impressed with food, ordered chicken tikka masala, tasted like a powder mix, didn't even look right. Service quite good although only one person takes orders. Pricey, not worth it Considering we left loads they didn't even ask how meal was. Will not be visiting again.

I so wish we had a good Indian in the neighbourhood. Unfortunately, this restaurant is not it. Soggy and greasy food as well as unfriendly service spoil the experience. Too bad!

Description
Tower Tandoori is the oldest Indian restaurant in Bermondsey and still uses a traditional, charcoal-fired tandoor lit in 1978 and still smouldering! Established in the same site on Tower Bridge Road and run by the same family for 30 years, the Indian tandoori cuisine at Tower Tandoori is truly refined. Recently refurbished with an interior design inspired by the shady, serene courtyards of Indian Palaces, Tower Tandoori's menu has also had an overhaul. The Head Chef has drawn his inspiration from the great traditions of the Moghul Empire and blended them with the best of Indian and English cuisine developed over the last 30 years. Tower Tandoori offers al fresco dining during the summer season and there is a fully-stocked bar with an extensive selection of international wines, beers, cocktails and Indian beverages. The restaurant is also available for private dining, family gatherings and special occasions such as birthdays, corporate events and product launches.
