Customer service here is dreadfull. The offer was 1 starter, 1 main and 1 rice or bread, for £10.95, I asked for any recommendations for starter, and was told, no , you choose, food was mediocre, but service was terrible!

Got the Tuesday special deal - plus you can bring your own drinks without corkage (M&S football round the corner is a great stop for a drink). Food is good and service is of a good standard too. Recommended..

Its clean, BUT the food was truly shocking, the starters contained the entire Dead Sea worth of salt, and perhaps someone should introduce them to pepper. Huge main courses, indistinguishable from each other (fifty shades of red food colouring). And the lights, dear god the...More

We use Cowes Tandoori on a regular basis, and always find the staff polite, efficient and accommodating. The food is always excellent, and the staff are happy to "tailor" any of the meals to meet specific requirements

Went into Saffron and observed many people complaining because they had waited 30 minutes. We decided to leave and went down the road to Cowes Tandoori. Fantastic food. Very fresh. Portions so large we had to take them away. Highly recommend.

Excellent selection of curry and well describe with how hot they are for the inexperienced. Inside decor bit basic but the food and service makes up for that.
