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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We found this restaurant via ‘Google’ and booked a table for four people for my wife’s birthday, what a gem of a find it turned out to be! The food is absolutely amazing, the taste, flavours and representation are outstanding as is the service too,...the ambiance of Tanishq and views from the restaurant make the whole experience a perfect 10/10! .. and there is plenty of parking too! Congratulations and compliments to the chef and team Tanishq for bringing outstanding London 5* fine dining Indian cuisine to Essex. Superb! We are already planning our next visitMore

Simply the best indian restaurant you can find this side of Mayfair. Beautifully spiced, unique dishes, with everything made from scratch on the premises. We tried two side dishes, which were both wonderful. Special mention must go to the desserts. A michelin experienced pastry chef...creates breathtaking plates, which would grace any Michelin starred restaurant.More

Food and service was impeccable, it was on par with places like Beneres, cinnamon kitchen etc highly recommend. We moved near Essex recently and wanted a fine dinning place not too far away as west end has now become a bit of a trek. We...stumbled upon this place and booked to go. We read reviews that said it was good but oh my it was better than our expectations. Every single dish from starters to mains to desert was impeccable. The monk fish main was honestly mind blowing. Our waiter Mahmoud went above and beyond and we felt so well looked after. It is a beautiful place to and we will definitely be going back again.More

Food good, although a little on the pricey side. Don't like it when they try and get every penny out of you. £4 for a few mini poppadoms with no more than a table spoon of each of the three chutneys is well over the...top. Especially as the mini-poppadoms would equate to just one large one in a 'regular' Indian. This is the sort of thing that costs them next to nothing, which they could give to customers f.o.c. Our meal of two courses, one bottle of wine (£29) and two beers came to £246 for four. (A main of three large prawns worked out at a tenner a prawn!).More

Had an amazing meal here at the weekend. If fine Indian dining is what you seek, this is the restaurant for you. The condiments with our poppadoms had all been created by the chefs (wish they sold these as we would have bought some to...take home!). We ordered the Rajasthan spicy lamb curry and the Ceylonese cashew korma, which arrived promptly and both had the right amount of spices and sauce. The naan bread was light and fluffy. We also loved the complimentary amuse-bouche, and the macaroon at the end of our meal was another nice touch. Service was very good too. We shall definitely return. Thank you for a great dining experience.More

It was mothers day and having been here before and had an excellent meal, this night was a night from hell. Having asked for mint sauce to have with my poppadoms was told they had run out and chef was making me some. However, by...the time it arrived I had finished. We ordered our main course which had a nut content sauce and as I have an allergy we asked for it to be on the side as we were sharing. When the main course arrived it was over cooked and the manager said he would replace it and keep an eye personally. At this point it was well over an hour since we had finished our starters and may I point out we had had several different waiters coming over, one of whom asked if we would like the dessert menu. Eventually the replacement main course arrived and yet again a different waiter brought the food over and started to explain what it all was and to our astonishment poured the sauce all over our main course, which we had specifically specified from the beginning that the sauce had to be on the side. I got up and asked for the manager who was supposed to be keeping an eye on us personally in his words, when he eventually arrived he asked what was wrong,by this time my husband and I after2 hours were livid and the managers reaction was to laugh and we left. We eventually contacted Imran one of the owners and after us explaining our experience said he would investigate this and get back to us which he never did. Please be aware the staff are nice but untrained and the managers needs to learn how to manage and deal with a genuine complaint.More

Arrived 15mins earlier than our table was booked for - greeted by a very friendly lady who took our coats and put them in the cloakroom. And promptly showed us to our table. The restaurant is decorated beautifully - very classy. From the moment we...were seated my husband and I were looked after impeccably by Hassan and his front of house team. First class service. The poppadoms and chutneys were a great start whilst we looked over the menu. For starters we had the scallops and the prawns- both dishes were fabulous, in presentation and in flavour. Our mains of chicken biryani and lamb again were of a high standard and quality. We were going to order the bread basket as one of our accompaniments but as any good waiter would - Hassan advised us this would be too much as my biryani came with naan anyway. Impressive service. After we had finished the head chef Kishore came out of the kitchen to discuss our food experience and to explain Tanishq’s concept. This was a really lovely touch. As a couple we thoroughly enjoyed our experience/evening here. We can’t wait to come back and bring our family. We will see you soon Tanishq Team. Thank you for a fabulous evening.More
