There are in fact two different Indian restaurants in Tower Bridge rd - the Tower Bridge Tandoori, up by the bridge, and the Tower Tandoori, between Grange Rd & the Bricklayers Arms. The Tower Tandoori has been there for much longer and I've always had good meals there with no problems, but like other people I've been disappointed in the Tower Bridge one. It would be helpful to know whether the people who say there were disappointed in the Tower Tandoori actually meant this one or Tower Bridge - if they did mean the Tower, please do complain in person and give them a chance to put things right, as I've found them very helpful and willing tolisten to people's views.
If in fact people meant the Tower Bridge one, maybe they could make it clear, cos it would seem a pity to criticise the wrong one!
Oh I got confused...I was talking about having a really bad take away from Tower Tandoori not Tower Bridge...
So that's not good though is it? Bad take aways from both.
I will tell them that it was bad recently because I do agree with you Hilary that they do listen to complaints, maybe they'll sort it out.
Thank goodness - when I first read this thread, I thought it was referring to Tower Tandoori (S of Grange Road) - I didn't realise there was another one with an almost identical name. I'm so relieved - I haven't been to Tower Tandoori for a while, but used to get takeaway from there quite often, and always enjoyed it. (But I'm a vegetarian, so probably have different criteria for judging a restaurant to a lot of people.) Out of interest, tanya, what did you order and why was it bad?
Let me think, it was probably along the lines of chicken tikka masala or butter chicken tikka with pilau rice and some peshwari naan. Everything was only luke warm, but the sauce was really sickly with an odd flavour. The naan was cold and quite hard.
I've been ordering from them for years and I've always thought they were really good and never had a problem with the food. Sometimes its been easy to figure out when the regular chef might not be on but its never been as bad as it was the last time.
Both me and my bloke didn't feel too good after eating it, lets just say it didn't make a reappearance but it certainly repeated nastily!
Morley Tandoori not too bad, only does takeaway, but out of SE1 one of my fave cheap places is the Lahore Express on Bethnal Green Road. Looks like a Bollywood version of an American diner, doesn't do booze, does takeaway or eat in, great food cheap as chips.
