Fantastic food from starters to dessert. Great attentive staff who all worked to please. Food was amazing with great flavour and not overpowering as some Indian outlets can be. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Didn't break the bank either. Well done KT

We last visited this curry house 5 years ago and went out of our way to return. The food was still excellent but the staff were very moody which spoilt the experience( usually the staff in Indian restaurants are super friendly) . Maybe just a...More

Nice enough food, however the service was rude, particularly given the price and 12% tip included on the bill.

Myself and a friend visited the Kensington Tandoori on Easter Sunday with very high hopes after an enjoyable previous visit last July. Unfortunately, it would be fair to say that we left thoroughly disappointed. The restaurant was virtually empty when we arrived at around 5.30pm....More

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.
