We've got take-aways often from here but this evening was a disappointment. Partner went and got the Mango Chicken, for himself. Said it was a bit sweet. Later, I served myself a small potion. OMG!!! Ultra-high on sugar, ultra-low on any spice or flavouring. Just...a sweet, yellow mess.More

The Royal Tandoor located at 5/478 Cranford St (not Warrington St as above) would be hard to beat for service, meal quality and value. The wines are well chosen and affordable including the Graham Norton Shiraz which complimented my meal perfectly. Their onion barghees were...perfectly cooked large and tasty. We chose the Royal banquet which was a banquet in every sense of the word being able to choose our favourite curries also was a bonus. We were very impressed with the meat quality and the generous portion sizes. The meals were flavoursome and beautifully presented. The waiter was polite and extremely helpful and the restaurant was warm, clean with a lovely ambience. We will not hesitate to return and highly recommend the Royal Tandoor for your favourite Indian dish.More

We arrived in Christchurch after dark and hungry. I searched up food places near where we were staying (Edgeware) and came across Royal Tandoor. Staff friendly, food came quickly and was delicious (especially the naan bread).

This place was oddly empty (not a good sign). The service was friendly. My naan bread was wonderful (I got the one that's called Peshwari naan elsewhere, though it was called something different at this place); but my chicken korma didn't taste like I'm used...to it tasting, and had a slightly granular consistency.More

Delicious Indian food made from fresh ingredients. Looks and tastes very authentic and home made. Please note that the Warrington Street location is more of a take away place, there is only really a waiting area at the front of the shop (pictured images are...the Cranford street location, which is also excellent).More

We picked take away, they have combo meals which were good, specially with lamb curry. Veg Biryani turned out to be a disappointment.

Had an evening meal here. I requested a dish not on their menu, but they provided it. It was probably a little too hot for my taste, but I was not going to complain as they made it specially for me. Super starter and apart...from a little bit too hot, an excellent main course, thank you.More

Grabbed some takeaways for a large group shared meal, combined with food from another Beckenham Thai restaurant. The Royal Tandoor food was enjoyed by everyone, their nan bread being a good size too as some seem to have shrunk at other outlets. Good quality, mild...as ordered to suit everyones palates. All good, ready to go at the allotted pick up time too which helps when co-ordinating a smorgasbord as such of takeaways to enjoy.More

We have been here many times to eat in but this time we grabbed take out meals. The same great quality that we can enjoy at home on a cold evening with a bottle of wine.
