Somewhat surprised by the negative views on here as my experience was very much at odds. I found the service to be efficient and friendly. Happy to wait for us to order as we chatted, as I was meeting newlywed friends (who I hadn't seen since the big day). Food was really tasty and all the dishes we picked were... More

We have been going here for years. The food is always pretty good. Up until now everything has been. However last month though the poor service, slow, unwilling - spoilt the experience. The actual waiting staff seemed very poorly managed. We ordered beer which took ages to come, the manager was difficult about seating and finally we were served our... More

After reading some of the reviews I was a bit worried about eating here as people had said the service was bad and the portions were small. Well all i can say is they must have been reviewing somewhere else! The service and the food were faultless and the portions were more than adequate. All in all a great night... More

Kennington Tandoori is graced with beaming politicians from across the political spectrum on its front windows, attesting to the quality of the food inside. The restaurant is smartly decorated and furnished with giant antique maps of India on its walls. The service was prompt, helpful and polite. Unfortunately, the food failed to match both the window endorsements and the manicured... More

Had heard about this restaurant over the years - so decided to give it a try. Food and service was good. A little disappointment by portion sizes. But very tasty. Might give it another try!

Ate here on Friday. The beer was great although it was bottled! Food was so so. Tiny portions. I wouldn't be rushing back.

I have been working near the tandoori for a few weeks on a future construction contract and after passing a few times, decided to call in. We booked a table online with plenty of time to spare as there were multiple times available. We arrived and we're squeezed into a small corner of the restaurant with barely room to put... More

Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to sample the food here. I suddenly felt a little unwell after we ordered drinks which was a shame because we didn't want to ruin "date night". Feeling mostly better ten minutes later, to ensure that we didn't order a big meal and have to promptly leave if I didn't fully recover, we asked... More

Description
The dining room at Kennington Tandoori is an elegant space dressed in lemon, plum and chocolate colours. Located on Kennington Road, this south London restaurant draws a local crowd and is always bustling with a lively mix of tables for two, business groups and politicians. The food is the real star of the show here, and the kitchen staff at Kennington Tandoori pay attention to detail - roasting and grinding all their own spices and making up all their own fresh stocks in-house. The menu – which is filled with classics such as the chicken tikka cooked with almonds, pistachios and coconut cream in a saffron sauce – is complimented by a bespoke wine list created by Caspar Auchterlonie.
