After 40 plus years of eating at Curry Houses all over the UK we decided through laziness to try this one which was effectively on our doorstep. One reviewer enthusiastically stated that it was a great restaurant! He must have been a heavy smoker or constantly had flue to find this garbage acceptable. This same guy has obviously never tried anywhere else , as Bowburn Tandoori Centre takes bland food and tardy service to an entirely new level. SPECTACULARLY AVERAGE! Waiting an hour to have… Read Full Review

Having read reviews claiming Bowburn tandoori is delicious and the best Indian they've ever tasted, I convinced my family to go here instead of our usual Indian. It didn't even compare - the curries were bland and watery, tasted of pretty much nothing, small portions etc I would not recommend and won't be going back!… Read Full Review

BOWBURN TANDOORI...is a sleeping giant! I recently visited Durham City on business, I asked a traffic warden (of all people!) where I would find the most enjoyable indian meal, his response was that its a 5 minute taxi ride out of the city centre to 'BOWBURN TANDOORI' but well, well worth it!
I was not dissapointed, it was terrific, the service superb and I even got a lift back into the city afte my meal from the owner of the restaraunt (MAX!)
I cant wait to go back, JANUARY!!

I use this as my main indian takeaway. The service is consistently excellent and those working at the restaurant are always polite. The prices are reasonable. The food is generally very good. The degree of spiciness suits me very well. The time taken to produce the food is good and the expected time for collection is accurate. Their specialities are well worth the experience. If I had critisisms, they would be that there is no option for a low-oil meal and also it is not always easy to… Read Full Review

I have been eating at this establishment for over 15 years, my job takes me all over europe, and my favourite 'eat out' is Indian, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT THE STANDARD BARER OF INDIAN CUISINE WOULD BE FOUND IN BOWBURN?
I strongly urge you to try Bowburn TANDOORI, It is value for money, clean and the food is soooooooo good ( and addictive!)
The house speciality is a Tandoori mixed grill, I dont care who you are, if you are starving and love Chicken Tikka, Lamb tikka, Tandoori king prawns… Read Full Review

Both as takeaway and sit down I've had some great meals in Bowburn Tandoori, and a recent take away (Balti) was the best Indian food I've had in at least the last five years - including meals in London and the North West. Their Rogan Josh and Balti dishes are superb. The quality of Chicken Tikka and it's preparation are tip-top… Read Full Review
