Indian cuisine is certainly not a rarity in the UK, but it’s still a thrill when you find a restaurant that serves delicious, flavoursome and fragrant dishes brimming with the freshest ingredients available. Which is exactly what you’ll find at Gaylord Tandoori in Twyford. This cosy restaurant in the town centre has a menu featuring all the classics you’d expect, from tasty lamb roshon tikka bhuna (with loads of garlic), to the sizzling and spicy tawa chicken, to the Punjabi-style lamb shank marinated overnight with mixed spices and served with helpings of yoghurt, coriander, ginger and lime. You’ll find this delight on London Road – booking ahead is essential.
Warmly welcomed to the restaurant by the staff who gave us plenty of time to choose what we wanted to eat from the menu. The service was very good, with good draft beer and excellent food. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone who has lived, worked and travelled in Asia and also for anyone who has not.
The food as always was very good. The service was less so. We had to wait about an hour for our order to be taken, and then the waiter left before taking everyone’s order, so that he could answer the phone !! I do not believe this is very good customer service. We then waited about another 15 minutes before someone else came and asked if we’d placed our order and another five before the original waiter came and completed the order ! We had to wait too long for food and drinks orders to be taken.
Great service, not rushed, made to feel welcome. Cosy atmosphere. Fresh ingredients and really good food. Excellent selection to choose from. Good sized portions. Recommend Gaylord.
