About Tandoori Nights

This is the kind of Indian restaurant you could spend a thousand-and-one nights at, working your way through the menu, and still find a surprise each and every time. Tandoori Nights is located in Poole’s town centre, on the High Street near the corner with New Orchard, easily spotted for its bright hot pink exterior paintjob. Loyal customers in nearby Bournemouth make the trip out here to take in house specials like the garlic and chilli chicken masala and chef’s specials like the tandoori chicken masala served on the bone. In the hood since 1995, Tandoori Nights longevity is a result of its superb quality.

Brilliant evening, great service and lovely food. Considering we were a table of 23 and the rest of the restaurant was busy, the guys did a grand job. Thanks Tandoori nights!

This was booked as a work Christmas meal, and we had to change numbers last minute and the restaurant were very good at catering to our needs. Also the staff offered us a set menu when we arrived to which we all accepted. The food was delicious and the service was very quick, and at a very reasonable price. We will definitely return in the future.
