We've never eaten in but had takeaway from here a few times now. It is slightly more expensive than other Indian takeaways but the food tastes a lot nicer! I love the chicken korma.

We had a return visit and again found the food to be of a nice quality with plenty of flavour and good sized portions. This particular visit we thought our takeaway was on the expensive side so we did a comparison with this takeaway and our regular takeaway in Torquay and Thariks prices where just shy of 15% more the...

Myself and my hubby were on a weekend away 3/02/2017, in Torquay, and on the Saturday night we decided to go for an Indian meal, and this restaurant was recommended, it took us a little while to find it as were on foot, but I must say, service & food were excellent, would definitely go back.

Chicken Tikka Masala - chicken drowned in a lake of sauce with an overdose of red colouring. Very sweet! Not good. King Prawn Korma - another lake of yellow sauce with plenty of coconut but an off-putting milky taste which masked the flavour of the prawns. Yuk! Chicken Biriyani - very good, tasty, aromatic and with a good, simple vegetable... More

We gave Thariks a try just for a change to our normal takeout and found the food to be of a great quality and nice authentic taste. I agree with other comments that the owners are not that charismatic but when having a take out this is not so important. I would recommend trying a takeout as the menu is... More

We had previously visited the restaurant the previous year whilst on holiday and had no hesitation in returning. Once again the food was lovely and service was excellent. Hope to return at Christmas.
