Went here with my mate and his adult son while his wife was on holiday. We nearly turned away when we arrived as the grounds were in such a mess, overgrown, litter strewn and scrap lying around. The steps were covered in green algae and dirty.
We decided to take a chance and entered and went into the bar area on the right. We were greeted by a scruffy wee individual wearing a curry stained (once white) shirt and trousers which looked as if they were ironed with a cricket bat. Despite his appearance he was pleasant enough and took our drinks order and shooed us into the dining room.
It was cold, poorly decorated with huge damp or curry stains on the wall and overall run down looking. The pleasant wee waiter took our order and disappeared, no other staff was evident and no other customers were dining either.
The food arrived,three different dishes but with seemingly the same sauce, both in appearance and taste.
The food I can best describe as edible but not very exciting and definitely not worth recommending.
We finished our meals paid up and left.
Price wise the meal was reasonable but on reflection not that great value as the meat content was on the small side.
All in all one of the least enjoyable curries I've had and would not return

Came on a Sunday evening and chose “set meal for 2” from the menu and not the Sunday night buffet.
Pickle tray one of the best we’ve had, as was the naan; and starters of onion bhaji and lamb tikka both excellent.
Owner served us and was attentive but not obtrusive.
We’re so pleased we ate here, and highly recommend.

Found this place by chance was so glad we did. Family run restaurant. I had the garlic chicken it was really good.It would have been given 5 stars but the smell of cooking spread to the dining room

This is myself and my husbands place to eat when we want Indian food. We have tried many more Indian restaurants and Stranraer Tandoori far surpass all other. Great pricing and excellent service which is attentive but not to much. We are loyal eaters here. Strongly recommend Stranraer Tandoori.

Been twice and enjoyed it on both occasions. Tasty food, pickle tray really good. First meal was very tasty but not as spicy as anticipated so went for a hotter curry on second accession which was very good.
