“Excellent food, superb staff”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

A group of six of us ( family) have been staying in Long Melford for a couple of days and last night as a last minute decision, decided to go to the Melford tandoori for a meal. As all of us are "out of towners" this was our first visit. I have to say the food was absolutely excellent and on par with some of the top London Indian restaurants I have visited! Considering we got to the restaurant quite late ( about 9:30) this did not impare any of the quality or freshness of food. We had a variety of dishes, ranging from Chicken dhansak to venison curry ( which my brother said was amazing) all were first class. The staff were superb, working together like a well oiled machine, very attentive and efficient, the manager should be very proud of himself and his team. They could teach a lot of restaurants a thing or two about customer service excellence. The only negative I have is that we don't live closer!

“LOVELY FOOD needs a revamp.”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Food is good here, not the best but excellent. Toilets are a major let down. Buffet could do with dishes being named, and being able to circle around it as queue was too long and meant no one in your party gets to each at the same time and you are left eating separately because of waiting..... the buffet menu that needs a degree to work out all the options, is far too confusing and contradicts itself - simpler would be better. Not enough fish on the buffet menu. Great head of staff eager to please and take on board ideas. With a Manager like this this place will not go far wrong. A nice setting in the evening but buffet seems too fast food and not as pleasing.

“Best Indian in Melford”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

This is a small, friendly, superior curry house. Staff are polite, friendly and attentive. The menu is fairly extensive but if you're like me you'll stick to the tried and tested staples. Nicely cooked, ample servings - you leave feeling satisfied rather than bloated. What more can be said? If you're in the area and fancy some good quality indian food, check this place out.
