“Our regular haunt.”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We have eaten at this restaurant many times over a number of years. We keep trying other restaurants but always return to this one. Why? Well the staff are always welcoming and the food, while not presented as well as other restaurants, is always hot, plentiful and very tasty. As another reviewr has said, It is the best value in Rainham

“The best Indian in Rainham”
Reviewed 12 December 2013 via mobile

We eat at this restaurant at least once a month and have to say it's the best value in Rainham

The Thursday special menu of a starter, main, rice and side dish is great value and the quality of the curry is good

Service is quick and the staff are always friendly

Take always are also good and not a long wait for free delivery

We have recommended the restaurant to our friends who now use too!

“Non-Smokers Beware !”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Sadly, despite our last great review, we now have cause to complain.
Since the government introduced non-smoking regulations in bars and restaurants, my wife and I have enjoyed going out much more.
As non smokers, the smell of smoke whilst I am eating actually makes me feel sick.
The Tandoori Parlour, hosts a group of between 4 to 6 men on a Thursday night every week upstairs.
Sadly several of this group smoke, which normally is not a problem, however on several occasions, these people, rather than go out to the front of restaurant, have taken it upon themselves to open the fire exit on the first floor, and smoke outside, with the door propped open.
With air gusting in, smoke end's up being blown into the restaurant, and despite our complaints to the owner and his staff twice, our comments have been ignored.
The smell of smoke became so bad a few weeks ago, that we put down our knives and forks and had to leave.
This is a warning to those wishing to visit this restaurant on a Thursday night. If the smell of smoke whilst you are eating puts you off, then try and pick another night to visit.
We won't being using this place again, as we feel that the management would rather take money off a group of big spenders, rather than listen to a couple of its longest and regular customers.

“The best indian in Rainham in my opinion”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

I was born in Rainham and have eaten in every Indian last and present, This had consistently been the best one ive found in the area, that said the food isn't the best indian I've ever eaten and I consider myself well versed in Indian/ Bangladeshi cuisine but it is good indeed. Ive eaten in and had takeaways and the quality and price is great. The restaurant suffers slightly from its location being out of the main high street which is good for avoiding the up kick out trade, this also means that they need to keep the quality and taste high to maintain regular custom. The downstairs is very cramped and you feel like your eating on top of the bar. Others in the area love Meridian spice but to be honest i wouldn't visit there ever again unless you like feeling like a sardine and want below average food. Keep up the good work Tandoori Parlour the balance of flavours is great.
