We visited the Magna Tandoori for the first time on our one-night stay in Berwick during our holidays in Scotland and England in September 2012. We had found out about this indian restaurant over a flyer we noticed at our bed & breakfast.

The interior and atmosphere are very nice and set up the right mood to have dinner. The menu card is breathtaking as you got so many meals and categories to choose from and various options to alter your choice. The selection of beverages is enourmous, too. But I can't say much about as we "only" ordered some lemonades to drink. The service was very fast and so it just took a few minutes to order and a short time later, we got our meals served hot and fresh on a small warmer. Excellent because the portions are good-sized and so we could enjoy our meals calmly.

I have to admit that here in Germany I rarely eat indian food and when I did I was often unsatisfied with the taste. But this time I was really happy. It was simply delicious. My domestic partner who likes indian food was delighted. The price was ok, too - nothing to complain about.

After all, we were very happy to have chosen Magna Tandoori for our dinner. Mr. Khan and his staff were very friendly and as tourists we felt welcome all the time. In the end we had some indian tea and tasteful coffee in the comfortable lounge near the entrance. I fully recommend to check out Magna Tandoori to anyone who stops in Berwick.
Overall a great experience, thank you so much and greetings from Germany.
Best regards, Chris

We visited the restaurant yesterday on the strength of the reviews on Trip Advisor and were suitably impressed. The service was excellent and the food really great. I liked that the food was a little bit different from standard Indian restaurants. I'd never seen venison on an Indian menu before! My sizzling jumbo king prawn dish was to die for and the parathas were really authentic and tasty. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes great Indian food.

This is our 3rd visit to the Magna over 3 years and every time has been just fantastic I am from Oldham so when it comes to Curry I know what I am taking about. Very nice staff beer a little expensive but good very nice decor and a good large menu if you cant find what you want or you want it a little hotter/cooler no problem. Clean toilets nice bar area had to find fault really all prices are about what I would excpect. One very Happy customer.
