Took us about 10 mins to find the place, mainly because it was very dark outside and inside. first impressions... small place but nice, staff looked 'rushed' but at the same time quite calm. Was hoping for more variety on the menu as they didn't have the meal i usually order at indians. So opted to go for a 'hotter'... More

I went to the KT with two friends on Sunday evening. The staff were polite and professional, offering knowledge and expertise on several dishes. We really enjoyed the freshness of the food and variety of different options available on the menu. KT specials are also worth looking at. All in all, best curry in London so far, definitely will be... More

The service is absolutely terrible - we ordered food from this restaurant, and after it arrived in a mess, the manager simply laughed at us over the phone. I'll never give this man business again.

Horrible service tonight. We were pretty much just laughed at after our food arrived completely smashed into pieces. We were VERY regular customers, but I'll not be ordering again after being treated so abysmally.

I went to this restaurant last night. I paid £78 for 2 people (extortionate considering the food being just okay nothing amazing). We both had a starter, main and apple juice and a bottle of water to share. The service from our waiter was good but the manager was surprisingly quite rude and sarcastic when it came to discussing an... More

The food was freshly prepared but the staff seemed indifferent and we had to repeated our order of 3 dishes several times and ask 3 times for water. Small, intimate environment, good food at reasonable prices. Recommended.

Met 5 friends for a curry on a Thursday evening - all in all good food and service, but an extremely illogical and annoying policy of not allowing a table (or early arrivers) to order a few starters / nibbles. 'we have a policy of not bringing out any food until the whole table has ordered' - 'we can get... More

Somewhat surprised by the negative views on here as my experience was very much at odds. I found the service to be efficient and friendly. Happy to wait for us to order as we chatted, as I was meeting newlywed friends (who I hadn't seen since the big day). Food was really tasty and all the dishes we picked were... More

We have been going here for years. The food is always pretty good. Up until now everything has been. However last month though the poor service, slow, unwilling - spoilt the experience. The actual waiting staff seemed very poorly managed. We ordered beer which took ages to come, the manager was difficult about seating and finally we were served our... More

Description
The dining room at Kennington Tandoori is an elegant space dressed in lemon, plum and chocolate colours. Located on Kennington Road, this south London restaurant draws a local crowd and is always bustling with a lively mix of tables for two, business groups and politicians. The food is the real star of the show here, and the kitchen staff at Kennington Tandoori pay attention to detail - roasting and grinding all their own spices and making up all their own fresh stocks in-house. The menu – which is filled with classics such as the chicken tikka cooked with almonds, pistachios and coconut cream in a saffron sauce – is complimented by a bespoke wine list created by Caspar Auchterlonie.
