This family-run Indian restaurant has been in Bermondsey since 1978, with third generation family members now at the helm. Its Tower Bridge address played host to a tandoori house before that, too. A fair few curries cooked over the years here, then.
The charcoal fired traditional tandoor has been in situ since those early days, and still plays an important part on much of the menu. Expect, then, dishes such as sheekh kebab, tandoori murgh, lamb tikka, tandoori king prawn and shatay murgh. Curry house classics are also on offer - think jalfrezi, tikka masala, bhuna, dopiaza and dhansak.
A take away service is available too, and keep an eye out for lunch deals - including a set two course lunch for under a tenner, take away lunch bags and generous buffets.
We like to think that the food at the Tower Tandoori is a little bit different. We still use a traditional, charcoal fired tandoor, which was first lit in September 1978 and is still smouldering away. This makes our tandoori food just that little bit more refined. But we would like you to be the judge of that!
Summer 2015 saw a revolutionary change in the Tower Tandoori timeline with the introduction of new head chef Govind Manjul. Govind brings with him experience from five-star hotels and some of the best restaurants in London. The menu has now been transformed reflecting the cultural diversity of India, with influences from Goan, Bengali, Nepalese and Gujarati cooking styles.
We look forward to welcoming you to the best known Indian restaurant in Bermondsey and one of London's earliest tandoori restaurants.
