The good food guide

The cooking aims a notch or two higher than your average suburban curry house, and the kitchen shows ambition by adding a mango dressing to grilled marinated paneer, cooking lamb with mustard seeds, curry leaves and coconut milk, and dishing up grilled fillet of sea bream with spiced potatoes. Otherwise, expect classy renditions of the usual suspects including vegetable samosas, chicken jalfrezi and prawn masala. “Colourful, classy Indian cooking”

Time Out Eating & Drinking Guide

Perhaps Tangawizi has come up with a blueprint for a new type of suburban curry house. It’s obviously a success, attracting young local diners (including the occasional British Asian couple), yet it serves properly prepared North Indian food. The surroundings doubtlessly help. This is a relaxed, hip enterprise with attractive staff, a backlit bar and tables inlaid with sari fabric; background beats and purple lighting lend a chilled nightclub vibe….everything we sampled spoke of a dab hand in the kitchen.

Square Meal

Possessing all the attributes of a high-street curry house but none of the dross, Tangawizi has developed a large local following. Its fans come because the interior is comfortable & modern, the service is polite & helpful, the food is well presented & everything is at the right price. All the old favourites are in place, from rogan josh to jalfrezis & tikka masalas, but those wishing to be more adventurous should try the excellent tanghai lamb with mustard, coconut sauce & fresh coconut or the equally good stir-fried okra with cumin. If you can't get a table, order a takeaway (or use the home delivery service).
