I visited this restaurant in March and I have to say it was one of the poorest service I have ever received. There is a real tension in the air as if they can’t wait for you to leave. All the waiters we had were...More

Fantastic food but very rushed service! Although it wasn’t busy, we could felt unnecessarily pressurised and pushed. We got the bill before asking for it and we didn’t have any drinks served at the end of the dinner: it was 10:50pm when we asked for...More

Dinner here yesterday on the way home from work. As other reviews indicate it’s on the pricy side and the staff aren’t the most welcoming. But my meal was really excellent - a well made onion bhaji, a splendid prawn patia and very good saffron...More

General consensus was good curry but sadly hugely overshadowed by the most unfriendly, unaccommodating staff. We were the only table in the restaurant and one of our party was running late so we asked to order starters but were told we weren't allowed to order...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.
