I live in Kennington & I'm very supportive of a local business if its any good. However the KT is rubbish. They charge £45 per person for a breakfast which is ridiculous, especially as the food is average! The Avocado came in cold cubes that...More

Really...? Edward, you should come and see me, I have a copy of your wife’s bill here - lunch for two with two main dishes including a lamb shank for £42.19 including drinks and service. That’s £21.09 each, not the £45 per head breakfast you...More

I was excited about trying this place but the overall experience was disappointing, especially when the eventual bill was north of £100. We opted for the £30 set menu, which confusingly lists a gin and tonic as part of the deal with only the sharp...More

KT is an establishment. The staff are efficient and their - over - priced menu delivers the dishes you want. But when the bill includes a gratuity and the waiter literally scrabble through the cash you have left to make sure it amounts to the...More

Fantastic food from starters to dessert. Great attentive staff who all worked to please. Food was amazing with great flavour and not overpowering as some Indian outlets can be. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Didn't break the bank either. Well done KT

Nice enough food, however the service was rude, particularly given the price and 12% tip included on the bill.

I booked a table for 5 (including a credit card deposit!?) and were told, upon arriving, that we had to have a set menu for £30 with no option to have the a-la-carte menu. Clearly we queried this and were rudely told that it was...More

The dining room at Kennington Tandoori is an elegant space dressed in lemon, plum and chocolate colours. Located on Kennington Road, this south London restaurant draws a local crowd and is always bustling with a lively mix of tables for two, business groups and politicians. The food is the real star of the show here, and the kitchen staff at Kennington Tandoori pay attention to detail - roasting and grinding all their own spices and making up all their own fresh stocks in-house. The menu – which is filled with classics such as the chicken tikka cooked with almonds, pistachios and coconut cream in a saffron sauce – is complimented by a bespoke wine list created by Caspar Auchterlonie.
