Great Baddow now has its own Tandoori restaurant. Last week the Baddow Tandoori opened. It is on Church Street and occupies the building which was previously home to La Vista and Gerrado’s before that.
- Open 7 Days a Week
- Lunch: 12pm – 2pm
- Dinner: 5pm – 11pm
- Sunday: 12pm – 11pm
The menu has a varied selection of regional Indian dishes. For starters there are some interesting dishes such as the Rangeen Capsicum and Sylheti Special Mix Kebab. They have a good selection of tandoori dishes, as is expected at a Tandoori restaurant. The Hash Pura Shaslik is something a little different – duck grilled with peppers, onions and tomatoes.
They have a few special Thalis, some Masala dishes. Kurma, Malaya, Pasanda and Rogan. There are also balti dishes and a selection of chef’s specialities, such as the Emley Lamb, Chicken Tikka Razala, Chicken Makanwala and the Mulie Sizzler. Overall an interesting and varied menu.
They do a Sunday Buffet with 20 different items plus poppadoms.
When is was Gerrado’s and La Vista’s it had a bar area, downstairs pizza bar and a more exclusive upstairs restaurant which served an al la carte menu. Baddow Tandoori serves Indian meals in the restaurant and also does takeaways.
Great Baddow now has a fish and chip shop, Chinese restaurant and takeaway, Russell’s English and European restaurant and a cafe in the Vineyards shops (The Glass House, previously Tiffany’s). Along with 3 pubs (the Kings Head appears to be closed again, but the White Horse and Blue Lion are both good pubs), Great Baddow has a lot to offer in the evening for a village.
This is not strictly Great Baddow’s first Indian restaurant as Yasmin on Baddow Road (previously the Carpenters Arms) provides excellent food. However, it is 20 minutes walk from the Sandon side of Great Baddow.
As soon as we get the opportunity to eat there a review will be added.
