I visited few days back, the restaurant was jammed packed. Somehow I managed to get a place for two. The food was awesome and real a great taste of India. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Bristol and keen for Indian cuisine.

Great food and always busy. We have visited Urban Tandoor at least 4 times so far with friends and family and food has been always consistent and service good. The sitting arrangement is not that great because the restaurant is very narrow.

No this restaurant is not wheelchair accessible. There are a few steps before you get to the entrance. Would be difficult for the wheelchair user.

As I'm not vegan myself, I'm not sure what provisions they can make specifically, but there was an extensive selection of vegetable, lentil and other dishes. They seem to be very helpful so fear not. You will enjoy it.
