Booked a table for my daughters birthday and as always wasn't disappointed. Friendly staff make you feel welcome and the food is the best Indian cuisine in the area bar none. Thanks for a nice birthday meal, made my daughter's birthday extra special and the dessert with candle was a nice touch.

Great food, great atmosphere and great staff. The Downham Tandoori is probably one of the curry houses in east anglia. Couldn't tell you how many times I been for a meal or takeaway from here but never had a bad meal. If you like curry then you must come and see the guys here.
