Description: This classic curry house, located between Kings Cross and Russell Square tube stations in London, is conveniently located for snappy working lunches and post-work Phals. The bright and buzzy restaurant has a modern dining room decorated with fairy lights, blue velvet chairs and crisp linens, and the convivial atmosphere is a hit with local curry aficionados. The kitchen at Tavistock Tandoori cooks up traditional halal Indian and Bengali fare, and we recommend the Prawn Kurma Kashmiri cooked with lychees and cream; the Chicken Dhansak in a sweet and sour lentil sauce; and the Lamb Tikka marinated in yoghurt and spices barbecued in the clay oven. The restaurant has a fully stocked bar with lager on tap.

“Average curry house”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

Went here for an evening meal with some business colleagues. Service was fine but although not bad, the food was nothing to write home about.

“Second visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2012 via mobile

This was my second visit to Tavistock Tandoori. For starters I had mixed kebab, which sizzling and very tasty: two pieces of lamb, two pieces of chicken and two kebabs. Very tasty.

For main course I chose chicken biryani with a plain madras sauce with nann bread. There wasn't much chicken and the rice was greasy. But it tasted ok.

The bill was £13.25 including a first coke and was good value for money.

I would eat here again.

“Just fine if you're after a curry”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

Nothing special, but quite acceptable. Buffet, so travellers can fill up if you're wanting to save costs.
