Tandoori Knights

About Tandoori Knights

No, it's not a typo, the Croydon suburb of Shirley really does have an armoured saviour riding in on a white horse carrying, not a spear or sword but a naan bread. Set among the swathes of unintimidating 1930s semis and well kept front gardens, Tandoori Knights is a taste of India in the South East. Classically decorated in comfortable style and with welcoming service from polite and knowledgeable staff, this is a place at which to relax, enjoy your food - if you can even begin to choose from that extensive menu of Northern Indian specialities - and make the most of being with friends and family.
