After having probably the best vindaloo I'd ever tasted a few weeks back in their restaurant, I ordered a takeaway tonight comprising chicken vindaloo, pilau rice and keema nan. Upon getting it home, the curry portion was meagre; lacked quantity of meat/potato and sauce and the chicken was dry. Not only did this disappoint me, but also the burnt keema... More

This place never lets me down. Great service by the seamless team. Great food, great buzzy atmosphere because it's hugely popular. If your visiting Maldon and like Indian food, this is the restaurant to book. Another big win for me is the lighting levels are just right, not to bright, so good for couples. My fav is Lamb Dansak and... More

We used to eat here weekly, before I moved away. The food was excellent with new dishes regularly appearing on the menu. The owner became a friend and was always pleased to see us. I had the opportunity to return last year, food was as good as ever. Now thinking about making an excuse to visit again.

Went with some friends for a 'Friday night curry' luckily our friends had booked a table as it was really busy. Great food, great service - food came across as really good quality/ well cooked and service was friendly, quick and not too intrusive. For a busy Friday night we were not rushed off our table either. Little touches like... More

We visited here as part of a very large group organised by the Mayor of Maldon for charity. The whole evening was superb and couldn't be faulted in any way. We had a set meal and everything was of excellent quality, with very good taste, very generous portions and felt fresh. It is a number of years since we last... More

This is really a great place for an Indian. Tables are very close to each other but you go for the food. All fresh and great tasting. Not cheap and fairly small portions but with that said we left with a smile. Waiters are a bit hit and miss with regards service and the wait can be a bit annoying... More

Our weekend meal was excellent, the food was made using high quality ingredients and skilfully prepared. The ambience was busy and possibly a little noisy for some but on the whole very friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jhual and his team at Maldon Tandoori as a great place to eat.

We managed to get in on short notice for a mid-week curry. Wonderful food with great service. Never disappointed as this has to be the best curry house in the area. Thank you for a great night.

We went on a very busy Friday evening, the restaurant was heaving but luckily we had booked a table, there were 14 of us in our party. As always, Jhual the manager was on hand to welcome us and get his friendly staff to ensure we had drinks served whilst deciding what to eat. Naturally on such a busy night,... More

Welcome to The Award Winning Maldon Tandoori

Our restaurant was established by my brother and myself in 1987 following the vision of our father who had a passion for cooking. The main cuisine is Indian/ Bangladeshi. Being from Bangladesh we have great expertise in traditional home-made food and regularly promote Bangladesh nights bringing the authentic foods to our customers.

We serve dishes made to customer's specific requirements, including anything from mild chicken Korma to hot and spicy chicken Naga. Our most popular dishes are Tandoori chicken Bhuna Balti and Tandoori King Prawn Jalfrezy Balti. We only use the finest king prawns from Bangladesh which are noted for their freshness and size. Many of our ingredients are sourced locally, although some specialist ingredients come from our suppliers in East London.

We have many customers as friends at Maldon Tandoori and hope to make many more. We hope to see you soon.
