“Birthday party”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

I went with friends on a birthday party and we got to the restaurant for 7pm. The waiter gave us about 15mins and took our drinks order. He then came back with the menus before our drinks. We all ordered our choices before 7.45pm. Our meals took along time to come out as takeaways were being done quicker. Our meals came out at about 9.45pm we were all starving, but the food was nice. Please get the chef to cook quicker many thanks

“Not bad but a bit disappointing”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We were staying on a site just outside Ryde and as we are curry fans we asked for a recommendation. We were told they used to visit the Ryde Tandoori lots but now went to another restaurant. However, as we could park right outside this place we thought we'd give it a chance. We were greeted (bit of a misnomer) in a curt, almost surly fashion and shown to our table. We were offered drinks to be going on with and opted for a couple of poppadums to nibble as we waited for our order. The is where it gets disappointing. It has gone along the route of using a universal tomato-based sauce for all its dishes - we have found over the last two or three years that curry house food has moved away from old-school British Asian cooking and now, many restaurants seem to be using this 'one sauce fits all' approach. I ordered a vegetable dansak which is sweet and sour in character, the sweetness SHOULD come from the lentils NOT from the addition of a blob of khorma sauce. This had very little in the way of lentils in it. I can't say it was bad but it wasn't a dansak as it should be. My husband's bhuna had the same sauce used in it. Not good. The side dish of dhall should be rich and savoury but this had, once again, a dollop of khorma sauce to sweeten it. That would be fine if you had a short amount of time to eat your meal and wanted your pudding combined with your main course but as we didn't, we were less than impressed with the overbearing sweetness. The use of tomato-based sauce and khorma sauce for sweetness has now thoroughly infiltrated a vast number of curry houses up and down the country.
The service throughout was curt bordering on brusque, and whilst I do not want a sycophantish waiter smarming over me in a phoney manner, I would have liked to feel I was at least a customer they were glad to see in their restaurants. The speed of service was just that, speedy. While we don't want to be hanging around for hours waiting for our food, the whole meal from start to finish was done and dusted inside 40 minutes. A bit rushed, to be honest.
There was one positive thing to say about the place - the portions were large. Mind you, that may not be a good thing if you are not enjoying the food! Oh yes, one more positive thing - the food wasn't expensive.

“Favourite curry”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

After trying out the different curry houses in Ryde over the years, Ryde Tandoori never disappoints! The staff are friendly and the food is always brilliant, whether your eating in or taking away.

“Same family since the late 60s”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I have eaten here a number of times through the year and the food has always been wonderful the nan is the best I can remember anywhere. You can tell how good the food is here by the number of take outs that are collected by locals. Although the restaurant is small the service is polite & efficient. I guess they have never move of expanded because of the local trade. Could do with the décor updating, but it didn't bother us as we went for the food. Don't judge it until you finish your meal. I bet you will be back.
