One of the oldest Indian restaurants in London, in one of the most historic parts of the capital, along Tower Bridge Road in Bermondsey, Tower Tandoori is a fine dining veteran and exemplar of traditional culinary values. When it first opened its doors in 1978, curry connoisseurs flocked from all over the UK to explore the Tower’s authentic Indian cuisine, then something of a novelty. Today, this award-winning restaurant remains at the forefront among the many Indian restaurants in London.

Tower Tandoori’s a la carte menu is a work in progress. It’s been a long time in the making, and undoubtedly it will continue to be reshaped by contemporary tastes and new discoveries of old recipes and techniques for many a decade more. Here, you can indulge in Anglo-Indian classics that became mainstays on London’s Indian restaurant menus due to pioneering early outlets like the Tower; or go for traditional masterpieces drawn from the cookbooks and kitchens of the Moghul Empire. Either way, this Indian restaurant along the Bermondsey stretch of Tower Bridge Road offers incredible variety and quality.
Tandoori’s Tower’s chef’s recommendations are more than simply recommendations, they’re encyclopaedic in the breadth and the menu itself is fascinatingly informative. Did you know, for example, that there are at least eight different names for ginger in India? For a powerful, spicy and gingery kick, go for the adrakwala murgh and consider your lesson learned. For an introduction to this venerable London Indian restaurant’s more recent admission of non-Indian cuisines into its kitchen, the unusual fusion lamb dish mirchi baja gosht stir-fries thinly sliced lamb with onions, green peppers, green chillies and fresh masala spices. Tower Tandoori is indeed a Bermondsey restaurant with true pan-subcontinental chops, with the third generation of chefs in the kitchen taking their cues from Parsi, Goan, Bengali, Nepalese and Gujarati cuisines. Bookings are a must at this jewel in London’s Indian dining crown down Tower Bridge Road.
