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.

We booked a table at Tandem for our company Christmas meal. At the time of the booking, I was required to leave a £35 booking fee. The meal wasn't bad, wasn't great either and the service was slow, so all in all very average. I...paid the bill and left. That evening I received a voice message saying that they'd forgotten to take the deposit off the final bill and to contact them. It was good of them to contact me, and I promptly emailed them and provided my bank details as they requested. Despite trying to speak to someone at the restaurant and sending numerous emails, it's now three months since our visit and I've still not received my deposit back. I'm continuing to chase this up, but my advise would be, if you leave a deposit, make sure they take it off the final bill before you leave the restaurant!More

Looking to have a good Indian meal, and saw the random, and looked very inviting. Ordered a couple of cocktails 2 for £10 good deal then ordered a little starter, then order our main and asked for it to be spicy. that wasn't very hot...and came out warm as nam bread was very small. To top it all off they had charged us for extras we never had £29 in total. Would I use it again or recommend anyone no . Over priced for what you get and it didn't even seem top quality.More

Did a walk in as a single as I had heard good reviews. Starter tandoori king prawns, 3 prawns which were hardly king no flavour extremely bland. Then had to wait 35 mins for chicken tawa. Over heavy on tamandrind and Garam masala. Thought the...sauce could easily have come from a jar from Aldi. Bill had a service charge not happy as the main had taken ages to come, then the server openly asked me for a tip. I had to bite my tongue. Did not come close to living up to the hype.More

After a few really enjoyable meals at Tandem, it was the at the top of my list for my celebratory Birthday meal. My Mum dealt with Chrissie in making the booking and made arrangements with her to make it an extra special evening. Chrissie went...the extra mile and was so helpful and accommodating. Justin was our waiter and he was so friendly, he knew the menu and made some great recommendations with food and drinks. All of the staff made it such a special meal we had a great night. We've been again since and they continue to impress, they make you feel so welcome and the food is amazing! 10 out of 10!!More

We had a lovely dinner in Tandem on Friday evening. The service was excellent and the food amazing. We had a lot of vegetarian and gluten free options. The cocktails were exceptional too, especially State of India that positively surprised with the spice. Huge thanks...to Philip and Amit for making this evening special.More

We visited Tandem last night. We hadn't booked, but took a chance on a table being available. A very warm welcome and a choice of areas to sit. The service was fast and the food was delicious. We ordered the balti for two, which arrived...in a deceptively small pot. The balti pot was packed with prawns,lamb, squid, muscles, and chicken and of course rice. It was the best balti I have ever tasted. We couldn't finish it which was a shame. The waiter did offer to bag it, but as we were staying at a hotel, it wasn't possible. Lovely surroundings and very helpful waiters.More

Excellent food and service. Was very disappointed that a 10% service charge was added to the final bill, thought those days were gone. So beware.

I came to Tandem on the recommendation of a friend and it was absolutely amazing. Authentic Indian food, expert bartenders and an amazing atmosphere for business meals and for family too! They have multiple rooms to dine in and it looks amazing! I have been...a couple times and the people who stand out the most are Filip, Ross and Bamba who have provided me and my friends with amazing service, showing knowledge of the food and drinks they provide. My favourite spot in Leicester!More
