“Worst indian about”

Written on: 21/07/2014 by Marlie217 (1 review written)

I went there once and never experienced such bad food as this. It is bland, cold and not worth the money they charge. Do yourselves a favour and give up. You have no quality as an Indian restaurant or take away. Go look about and sample the food from places that know their stuff. CHERRYLEAF IN BENFLEET, THE NUTS FOOD… Read Full Review

“What's Going On?”

Written on: 01/02/2014 by Sydkels (1 review written)

I looked at all the previous reviews and almost decided against going to this restaurant. No middle of the road reviews, all either five star or one! It was a charity night so I decided to risk it! Result, a very good evening, excellent value for money. All the staff I encountered were efficient and friendly, food was good but if you select more than a couple of meat dishes of course it's going to taste bland, be selective. I checked for dirty dishes, definitely not, dirty toilets, absolute… Read Full Review

“Superb”

Written on: 12/01/2014 by Alan and Judith (2 reviews written)

We've just celebrated my Mums 70th birthday here today and every one of the 37 adults had a great time and enjoyed the food, the service and certainly had no complaint about the cost. Starters and all you can eat buffet for £8?? Can't go wrong. The staff kept the tables clear and the boss couldn't do enough for us. It's not the first time we've eaten here and it certainly wont be the last. Def recommended… Read Full Review

“Great food in an amazing athmosphere”

Written on: 13/12/2013 by mattward1992 (1 review written)

I was in the area visiting friends and decided to try the tandoori parlour. The food was top notch, I have sampled many indian resturants in the kent and essex area and I have to say that this was up there with the best of them! The chicken pakora was fantastic and my wifes chicken vindaloo was an eye watering beauty! Never again will I resort to a home cooked Pataks cooking sauce when I know that this place is only 10 minutes away and offers such good value for money! On top of the… Read Full Review

“Excellent”

Written on: 09/09/2013 by Guest4546 (1 review written)

The problem with people my age is that I feel too old to go to a club and too sociable just for a pub. Here I can have a party atmosphere and eat great food. It's what people 30+ need. Seriously this is very good. Great value for money. The private dining area upstairs that seats about 200 is great for functions. Food quality outstanding and a must visit if your wanting a good night out!… Read Full Review

What a shame, back in may I had my sons 21st Here and really enjoyed it so I didn't hesitate to Book a hen night here. I checked several times when paying deposits and was assured there would be the karaoke, as it turned out There was no karaoke, While eating The old lady with awful attitude approached me to pay the bill yet 7 people on my table were still eating, at one point she tutted at waiting for me to swallow my food, and I told her I will pay as soon as I had finished eating, I found it… Read Full Review

“A curry, a night out and great service all in one place!”

Written on: 22/02/2013 by Robbym (1 review written)

Overall a big restaurant with 100 plus dishes to try from (under £8 on a Sunday) Noisy at weekends after 10pm but hey it's Essex Great quality of produce Friendly staff Caters over 400 people 5 star food and hygiene scores on doors The Tandoori Parlour is not your stereo typical Indian restaurant where you can go eat and patronise the waiters. If your interested in what part of India the staff are born in or how good their English is then I suggest you go elsewhere. If however your looking… Read Full Review

read a few reviews before went didnt know what to expect all i can say was treated really well i just dont know where these so called critics get off if you go to a large indian with dancing your not going to get a cosy little corner this must be the best value in essex music atmosphere and food decent it may not be to everyones taste, but a night out you cant beat, if you want your poppadoms in peace dont come here but if you want a fun night with mates celebrate here you,ll have a good… Read Full Review

“Felt sick all day after”

Written on: 06/12/2012 by Hammersx (1 review written)

Atmosphere was poor, no sign of the disco that was promised. The food was tasty but felt that it was reheated from the night previously, and the amounts left over after the 12 people that visited all evening would most probably be recycled into tomorrow's meals… Read Full Review

As bad as that sounds I find it difficult to believe purely on the basis that a restaurant as big as the Parlour has a 5 star scores on doors from Environmental Health. Instead of publishing your view on the net you should call the health and do something positive about it assuming its true. The point of your comment is to inform the public of your sons tikka, but action via a phone call to the health inspector would suffice :)

“We had a party of people to celebrate a birthday....”

Written on: 22/07/2012

We had a party of people to celebrate a birthday. Can't fault the food. Very nice and plenty of choice. Waiters all very nice and polite. The only downfall was the rude and arrogant old lady that was behind the bar and walking round the floor. She had a go at a waitress in front of tables of people which is wrong you do that away from customers. She was also very rude to me and a few other people within our group. If she doesn't like her job then she should leave as its clear she is in the… Read Full Review

“Quality night out in "Thundersley - Essex!!"”

Written on: 11/06/2012

Spent last Saturday night at Tandoori Parlour to celebrate my wife's 40th Birthday. There was 25 people in our party and I can now report that an excellent night was had by all. The whole ambience, the food, DJ & Karaoke makes for an all round special evening to remember. Shar, one of the managers is very friendly and approachable for any special requests, that make your evening just that little bit more special. I fully recommend Tandoori Parlour, Thundersley, Essex for one of your best nights… Read Full Review

We really enjoyed our evening at the tandoori parlour. There was a large selection of buffet dishes and everything we ate was really tasty. I did notice one rice dish looked a little dry and one dish was incorrectly labeled. but all in all the service was good, the food was good, the price was good and we would go back again… Read Full Review

“Great night out. Fantastic food. ”

Written on: 12/01/2012

This is the place to go if you are looking for a good night out with great food. Not too expensive and the Indian and Nepalese cuisine was the best we had tasted in Essex. You can eat as much as you like on the buffet which is fabulous. The staff are all friendly and attentive and the whole place is very clean and welcoming. Fantastic disco and karaoke! We will definitely be going back soon… Read Full Review

My guess is that you work there, because it is NOT by any means, an Indian restaurant of any quality.

Firstly I have to say that this is a great site and one where you can start a thread.

I agree with matey and think the restaurant is brilliant and I don't work there :)

It's a shame you didn't enjoy it but why venture out from Basildon? Isn't there any decent ones there?
