Last night after a great evening out we decided on popping in to the Tower Bridge Tandoori, (tower bridge approach) for a takeaway curry to round off the night.
What we got however rather ruined our appetites.
We ordered a chicken tikka massala, a king prawn delight, (mild coconuty sauce thing), some rice, bombay poatoes and naan.
When we got home it was very quickly apparant that the tikka massala was in exactly the same creamy coconut, very mild sauce of the prawns. The only difference was that they had made it a rather violent red with food colouring!!
Well him indoors rather dislikes coconut sauces, and prefers his curry to be of the bottom burning variety so we rung em up and told them it was rather unacceptable.
They were a bit rude and a bit angry, but offered to replace it nonetheless. So he returned and collected a new 'tikka massala'.
It was exactly the same.
Although very, very slightly less violently coloured.
But after their attitude to our complaint we decided it might be unwise to eat the new 'curry' anyway.
Anyway I thought it was only fair to let my fellow SE1ers know that they might not enjoy thier takeaway from Tower Bridge Tandoori, and as it is not exactly a bargain place, maybe think again before going there.
We used to eat in there occasionally until we had a bad meal there about a year ago. Since then it seemed to be under new management so we gave them another try.
We have has 2 excellent takeaways from there and 2 not quite so good ones, but this was the final straw.
Can anyone suggest another Indian that does take away in the Shad Thames
