My second visit and as before all was good. It is just not a six pints of lager & vindaloo place so perhaps some of the critical reviews reflect just that. A twist to their dishes away from the English curry house expectations is welcoming. Yes you may like to ask for little more heat but the rest seems genuine.

This is a restaurant that promotes how it won various 'curry of the year' awards and has photos on the wall of various celebs that have visited them.
That maybe the case, but it's the present that counts and my first visit here, with wife and daughter in tow, provided a hint of it's quality but not enough to justify the high price.
The service was miserable to say the least...our waiter barely grunted any acknowledgement in our direction throughout and came across like he preferred to be anywhere else but where he was...even if that's the case, at least attempt to hide it!
Without being made made to feel welcome, why would we hurry back?
As for the food, the chicken chat, a norm on most menus, was delicious. I asked for the beef granny main to be spicy, but it wasn't. It was supposedly made of best cuts of beef, but it was tough and chewy. A shame because the flavour was good.
My wife's main cost £15+ and while nice, she said it wasn't memorable.
So £50+ for two beers, a starter, two mains, a naan and sag aloo is pretty steep, especially is such an unwelcome atmosphere.
Shame really.

Went to this Indian. It was very expensive, much more so than your usual Indian and the food didn’t justify the expensive price. Even the rice was over £1.50 more than other restaurants. The food was good, but no more so than usual Basingstoke Indian restaurants.

Excellent dining and the best staff you will ever meet. Abdul looked after us extremely well and made our dinner memorable. We dine at Hook Tandoori regularly. The Chef is amazing.

Just had a very disappointing experience at this restaurant. Firstly, we had booked a table requesting to be sat at the back where we weren't squashed in amongst other diners. It turned out our table was near the front and sandwiched between tables where other diners almost knocked our drinks off the table as they squeezed to get to their seats. We had to wait over an hour, only to find out that our order had been lost. Once we had finally eaten our meal, we requested the bill. This arrived and showed we had been charged for three meals instead of just two. We found the restaurant itself, very noisy, far too bright with not soft lighting and the manager rather intimidating. We definitely would NOT recommend this place!
