“Worth visiting”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

As others have said, it's a little difficult to find as it's tucked away behind other establishments on the sea frontage. We visited for lunch and was glad to see they offer a menu del dia, reasonably priced at 6.95 euros p.p. Myself and fellow diner ordered onion bhaji to start. Had we realised we would get 4 each, we would have ordered 1 portion and perhaps the poppadoms with dips so we could share both. My FD thought the bhajis were good, but I was disappointed (not like any bhaji I've eaten before, but OK). We ordered chicken tikka masala, saag aloo, pilau rice and naan bread to share all dishes. The tikka whilst tasty was a slight disappointment as the sauce was too runny and only 6 small pieces of chicken swimming in far too much sauce. Pilau rice was excellent and a very generous portion. The saag aloo was acceptable but a little too spicy for what should be a mild dish traditionally. The naan bread however is somewhat addictive, not cooked in a tandoori oven but still great flavour is just a little too thin and too crunchy bottoms. As we were unable to eat it all, we asked to take home leftovers. The curries and rice together with naan were duly wrapped and bagged up ready for us upon paying the bill. However, the bhajis were not included, despite asking for them, nor were the dips we asked to be added too.

Service is fantastic and from some tables you are able to see into the kitchen and watch the chefs as work, an aspect I enjoy in any establishment. Decor is OK and the waiter was most efficient, attentive and friendly.

Yes I will return, but next time I'd like to compare menu del dia with full menu and report the quality there too. Overall, no bad reason not to return so far.

“Village Tandori”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

It took us a while to find this restaurant, you have to be careful you do not miss it as you walk along the paseo, it is best to walk from El Fare, you will find Village Tandori on the right, set back slightly, but it is worth finding, we have been 3 times, the food has been consistent, the owner is charming, we met the chef last night, he also is charming, they are working very hard to make the place successful.

We went to this restaurant for the first time after a recommendation. Excellent food, excellent service. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Have tried other Indian restaurants in the Torrox area. This is the best.

“Worth going out of your way for”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Torrox is 40 minutes drive for us, but well worth it to experience some of the best Indian food there is. The quality and quantity of meat served is better than anywhere else we have tried. Lamb so lean and succulent it melts in the mouth. The presentation and style is second to none. The staff friendly and helpful. Cannot recommend more highly. Absolutely superb.. Classy dining.
