Last night was the third time we've eaten at Alton Tandoori in as many weeks. The food is delicious and having spent some time travelling in India, the flavours here transport us back to very happy times there. The restaurant is small and you take your own drinks, not that this is a downside, it purely adds to the ambience. Add to this the takeaways being prepared ar the same time and you have a really buzzing place! The owner Abdul looks after everyone so well making sure to recommend a dish here and there, or make changes to any menu items, to suit individual tastes. The menu offers plenty to choose from and it's great fun trying lots of different curries. I would totally recommend this restaurant and am so glad we live near enough to visit often. Slightly disappointed we only just tried it out after two years of living in Alton! A BIG thank you to Abdul and his team!

We went to this restaurant on the off-chance of finding a table for four on a Friday night. Unaware of the rather small size of the place this wasn't possible so we had a takeaway instead...this review therefore reflects on the food rather than the restaurant facilities. What we ordered was well prepared, perfectly seasoned and cooked and came as very good sized portions. The flavours were great and what we ordered was more than enough for the four of us. We would certainly go for the takeaway again although I'm not sure I would want to eat there due to it's size and the number of tables squeezed in.

Fantastic restaurant. Food is very authentic without all the excessive colourings. Great service and added value that you can take your own drinks. Very small place and can get very busy so leave plenty of time for TA orders

Good food, excellent value although this restaurant is primarily a Balti Take away and have crammed in a few table for eating in. Does have the advantage of being able to take ones own alcohol which keeps the price down.

If eating in be prepared to be very crammed and if any of the other tables are noisy it can ruin your meal.

Week-ends in particular are very busy.

Wonderful service. Fab garlic chicken curry and chicken bhuna. Would certainly go back as never been to alton before. Very nice service but you need to take your own alcohol.
