Further Information

Every town and district needs a decent curry house and for Colchester residents, Ashiana Tandoori is that one venue on Magdalen Street that does the job. Situated in the town centre just steps away from the train station, this Indian restaurant offers an impressive menu of starters, mains and desserts in a modern dining space that affords privacy to guests who value discretion.

Start off your meal at Ashiana Tandoori with a series of tandoori picks – seekh kebabs, paneer shashlik and full mixed grills – or choose from a wide variety of classic curries that run the gamut from mild kormas to medium bhunas and rogan joshs, to fiery vindaloo right up to the frankly suicidal phall. Having ingested all that spice, how about something sweet to take that burning sensation down a few notches? Made from whole milk, cream, nuts and fruits, Ashiana Tandoori’s traditional Indian kulfis are the answer. For a fuss-free dining spot in Colchester with flavourful dishes that pack a punch, you’ll want to come on down to Ashiana Tandoori. Before you do that, however, we highly recommend that you reserve a table.

My friends and I enjoy the food here, it's very flavoursome. Their Sun to Thursday deal is very good value. Some of the dishes are hotter here than in other restaurants that I have been to.

We were the only guests in the restaurant for quite some time which made our experience great. Service was spot on and we could not fault the food. Ashiana really is as nice as it looks from the outside, will be eating here again and refer our friends. Thank you

My family and I had a delicious meal for my husbands birthday last night, service was fantastic, the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food was outstanding as always, piping hot and full of flavour. Best Indian restaurant for miles around.

The service we received was very good. The staff were very friendly and polite. The staff took the time to check everything was good without constantly being at your table. Most importantly both me and my son thought the food was great.

I have visited this restaurant previously and really liked the food. So i thought last Sunday i would treat my Dad for his Birthday. I was not impressed with the food this time round, rice was very watery and when food was served it was warm.
