First time visit on Tuesday and we went for the Tuesday feast. LOADS of food, extremely tasty, great spices and not stupid hot. Even the popadom dips were amazing!! (try the red one, its to die for). So happy its a 2 Indian week, as Ive just ordered take-away from them tonight.

Went there at the weekend with friends very friendly wonderful prices, when i got my sag aloo mixed up with sag paneer they gave me the dish free, was very tasty, had garlic mushrooms for starters even tho it isnt listed as one. Atmosphere was cosy and comfy. Will be visiting again soon.

Best curries served here. nothing is too much trouble - service cannot be beaten. Have been eating here for many years, have now introduced the grandchildren, one of which chose this restaurant as his farewell meal before going back to Uni. Once tried you will keep going back.

Have been going for years and love it. Although I went there on my birthday recently and was sat next to the toilet door, very unpleasant, the seating near the toilet should be reconsidered.

For years I have used Moonlight in Harlow. It is easily the best and most reliable Tandoori around. Unlike other venues, the food made here has never made me ill and their service (takeaway or eating in) has always been very good and fast. I wouldn't bother with any other tandoori in Harlow. Stick with Moonlight, they take pride in... More

The Moonlight is one of the best places you can go for a friendly atmosphere and great food. We especially enjoy the Assam special. It comes on a sizzling platter and is very tasty. Service is next to none. Lovely friendly staff

I lunched here the other day after a long interval and was treated to the most delicious lamb tikka karai that I have ever tasted. This is an authentic Asian dish and tests the mettle of any chef but I wasn't disappointed. Even the pilau rice tastes better here than in most Indian restaurants. Their house wine is very acceptable... More
