Tried to order takeaway via a third party site they are listed on, which gave hours and indicated they were open. Failed for some technical reason. Attempted to walk over and just order, found the sign said open but only rude staff inside. Sign said open, almost and hour till closing and I got little in terms of redirection, explanation,...

Moved from Melb to Cairns and tried many Indian Restaurants that would match the high standards in Melb. After many disappointments found Tandoori Nights, truly the best in Cairns. Love the butter chicken!

My girlfriend and went to Tandoori Nights during our visit it Cairns. We ordered our old favourites (Onion Bahjis, Paneer Tikka Masala) and the food was really nice. The staff were friendly and very accommodating when it came to any additional requests. The only thing that we didn't enjoy was the loud club/ techno music blasting out of the speakers... More

We were quite wary of this place since a few TripAdvisor.and Zomato reviews were quite critical. We ordered Dal(superb) and paneer ( Decent ). It's run by a couple from Punjab who manage everything themselves. It's important to appreciate the constraints under which they operate and the food can't exactly be as good as the best restaurants back home

My wife ordered the Chicken Mango Curry and exclaimed " I've on a winner". My goat curry was also excellent - we ordered 8 out of 10 for spice level which... More

The food there was horrible it made puke and not want to eat Indian food ever again. First the Atmosphere was trash. It felt more like a playground than an Indian Restaurant there were kids playing in front of the door and playing basketball inside. Second was the food, overall it was as bad watermelon and chili sauce. Their food... More

The music is so loud, if your like me and you want to eat with some peace you will have to go outside. The water on the tables isn't filtered and tastes nasty. The vindaloo i ordered tasted good but the meat was tough. Needs to be cooked slower.

We loved the atmosphere of this restaurant. Sat at the bar to enjoy a few drinks then moved outside to a cozy spot to eat dinner. Very tasty curries. Staff extremely friendly.
