We usually get take aways from the takdir and they are always good value for money and top notch food. We decided to visit the restaurant and we were not disappointed. We had a fantastic meal at a very reasonable price. The cobra beer on draught is lush

We love coming to this Indian Restaurant. All the staff are so pleasant and always have a conversation with us.

When entering, this traditional restaurant appears to be a little worn out, but don't be put off; good food, authentic atmosphere and music, another large glass of the house red will be difficult to reject. I returned each night. Try the chicken balti!

I've been going to the Takdir since the 1980s and its where I had my first Indian meal. You always get a lovely welcome, the food is always superb and I would recommend this to anyone. Don't be put off by the tatty buildings nearby - this little gem is well worth a visit!!

The Takdir scores top marks for friendly and attentive staff, excellent food and value for money. There is always a nice ambience in the restaurant and the service is top... More

Description
Takdir can be translated to mean 'luck' or 'destiny'. This Indian restaurant has been running successfully under the same ownership since 1979. Mamzy and Suff have taken over from their father of the day to day running of the business. With them around they make it a very calm, easy and relaxed atmosphere to be in. They do whatever they can to make your experience memorable and make you feel like... your at home away from home. Takdir is perfectly situated on East Parade, as it looks out onto the sea and after a windswept walk, or even drive along the seafront it can be quite inviting.
