About
It's a taste of that Indian roadside food culture which inspires Tawa and its menu. From our tantalising street food dishes to our "railway cuisine" so redolent of India's famed dishes, to coastal cooking, regional specialities and Indian inspired cocktails that fabulously quench that thirst.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Tawa is great for all ages and all occassions . Brightly decorated restaurant , friendly staff and incredible food . Despite being full , we were not crowded and got good service. As always the food was delicious and authentic. The small plates are great...for a change from the traditional curry and rice , which are also available . The platters are just right for 1 person or as sharing starter for 2. Everything tastes fresh and the menu has a good variety for all tastes and ages .More

We've been recommended the Tawa by many friends and it didn't disappoint. The food was excellent and the menu was varied with many things we hadn't seen before in an Indian restaurant. The soft shell crab and calamari starters were fantastic. The atmosphere was great,...quite lively with people clearly enjoying themselves. The waiters were all very good, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, especially Jay. We don't live far away so will be back very soon :-)More

Went as a group of 7 to celebrate friends birthdays. The restaurant was full but the service was excellent. Staff looked smart and were very attentive. The atmosphere was buzzy but not too loud. I was really impressed with the food. Very tasty. Lots to...choose from too. The food was presented well and I loved the different types of plates and cups for different courses. Matched the theme of the restaurant. Very funky. I took a birthday cake and the staff were very accommodating, they came out singing. Nice touch. Would definitely returned and will be recommending to friends and family.More

Second visit to this truly brilliant restaurant. Went with a group of 10 friends. Restaurant was full to bursting. Not your typical Indian restaurant in decor. Service in on night was a little slow but given it was a Saturday evening with a packed restaurant...this should be expected. The food was truly amazing and served piping hot to all of the group by some of the politest waiters you could possibly wish for. A truly delicious, amazing, authentic meal and at a cost which represented excellent value for money. The evening was enjoyed by the whole group all of who have never visted previousky and who will be making this their first choice for Indian in the future. Thank you all at TAWA and see you soonMore

Family birthday meal 17/02/24. What an amazing evening we had. Food was magnificent but on top of that, service was superb. The whole team made us feel so welcome that it was like having a personal service. The team couldn’t do enough for us. Would...happily say it was a 5 star service but that is doing a disservice to them as the team were better than that. Myself and my better half have been a few times and again have always enjoyed the experience but it was a first time for other members of the family who left and were full of praise. Thank you so much for a brilliant night and again credit where credit is due. Special mention to Jay (apologies if spelt wrong) a true credit to the company The Williams familyMore

Best Indian food around. Not greasy like some curries can be. Fresh tasting. Served properly hot. Varied menu with different dishes compared to your usual Indian. Jay served us and was brilliant - nothing was too much trouble.
