Gets better a and better here over the last few years. Vegetarian dishes are excellent, very reasonably priced. Unlicensed but that's not a problem if you do like a drink as there's small reasonably priced supermarket a few doors away. It's on Lowther Street 10 minutes walk from Gillygate or Monkbar just off Haxby Road.

My reviews on York Tandoori may seem rather repetitive. Its been 4 months since my last review from here. But its not been 4 months since our last meal. Yet again have the chef's at York Tandoori surpassed themselves. They're a great credit too one of York's hidden curry house's. Please dont let the unlicensed part put you off, visiting... More

Starters eaten were chicken pakoras & mixed kebab. These were OK. We ordered chicken madras, chicken methi, veg balti & chilli garlic naan. All arrived OK but... More

I've used York Tandoori since 1990. Since it opened. Never have I had a bad meal. Tonight was , yet again spot on. 1 of the best chicken dansaks that you'll find. Not only in York.

I've been eating here for many years and it's still my favourite Indian in the whole of york. I also order on hungry house and the guys add small personal touches to the order. Very friendly staff, authentic food and the tastiest curry. Im also a vegetarian and happy with the selection.

I've been coming to this place for years and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I live on the other side of the county and wouldn't visit york without coming here. Couldn't recommend it more highly and the staff are so personable and kind!

The food is always cooked to my liking and taste (I like spicy) and they always ensure it is cooked as I like it. The staff (family) are... More

At first we thought something was missing from the order, so we called on two different numbers and neither picked up. The third number finally took our call and explained their style of Mango Lassi is Mango Yoghurt served in containers. The Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani) tasted of just coconuts, there was no other flavour or spices in it. All... More
