Recently moved to Tunbridge wells and decided to try Kirthon on the pantiles. The food was lovely and the service by Suki was very warm and welcoming and he couldn't do enough for us! Will definatley be returning.

Would recommend the 'Kirthon special' (with chicken) on the menu here and also their willingness to please vegetarian diners. Chilli nan and cauliflower bhajis were delicious as was the pistachio kulfi for dessert.

We visited this restaurant last night and the service was amazing. There was ten of us including 3 children and they managed to cater for them considering none of them really like Indian food. What made the night though was our waiter Suki. Without him it would not have been that good. Whenever you visit ask for him. Food was... More

Whenever we ordered, being creatures of habit, nearly always got the same thing. I absolutely LOVE this place but you never get the same meal twice. So inconsistent and the only other thing is their delivery service is only from 18:00 on a sunday. Order at 18:00 probably have food by 18:45

We went here for our anniversary and the food was all delicious. We had starters of the lamb stuffed mushrooms and a chicken in wrap (I forget the name of it) that are both really good but big portions. We didn't really need the starters as we ended up very full. I had chicken kurma which was really creamy and... More

We have been coming here for several years and until recently have enjoyed our curries a lot. However it seems complacency had set in and several times recently the food has been mediocre at the best. This week we had a terrible meal - and we doubt that we'll be coming again- pity!

Food was at best average and two of us were sick after eating the prawn curry. The vindaloo was only slightly hot and could have been from a jar. Service okay Restaurant was not busy but we had to find someone not totally committed to their mobile phone so as we could pay the bill and leave. Would try somewhere... More

As a typical Korma girl, I was converted by the wealth of knowledge and advice from the waiter Suki. The menu is varied and unusual, and I was not disappointed by the choice recommended to me. His confidence and passion about the food was reflected in what was served. Definitely will be back to try more dishes.......

Thank Julie B
