We found Tawa on this app. The staff is very welcome and friendly. The service is excellent. The food is outstandingly well cooked and delicious. Portions are quite big. One dish which is smoked aubergine is extraordinary, we haven't tested it in any other Indian restaurants. The prices are reasonable. We were very satisfied and happy. Highly recommended.
We came up from London for one night and it was one of the best meals I have ever had. All of the staff were so attentive and kind, I would definitely recommend going there.
Amazing food, service and ambiance. Can’t believe I’ve only just discovered this place. Thank you!
The best Indian food that we have ever eaten. Simply outstanding in every way!
Fantastic food, great service.
Amazing food and the owners are incredibly nice. Great restaurant, I highly recommend it
Really enjoyed dining here. The food was amazing and the service was great as well!
Thoughtful to offer blankets given the current situation. We enjoyed the food and would recommend to friends
Oh wow. Found Tawa completely by chance on Open Table and so pleased we did. Service was amazing - Ajay, Vilas and the team were just brilliant (we were ‘Ajay’d’!). Everything explained and real care taken to understand what we liked in terms of flavours.
Vegan options are delicious. Everything was great but the standout was the starters. Have the Kurkuri Bhindi instead of poppadoms - you won’t regret it. Definitely try the Spicy Coconut Petis with some Masala Chips!
Can’t wait to go back. Without doubt one of the best Indian restaurants (and most authentic) that we’ve eaten in.
Food and service was excellent. Recommend
Excellent experience tasty food, true to Indian spice.. Naan portions could be a little larger.. Otherwise great time
There food was quite good, specially the dal makhani. The masala chai was a disappointment, I could only taste milk. It seemed that used tea leaves were used again.
They were quite sweet to offer blankets and gave good service
Amazing food and great service. Would definitely recommend.
Service was amazing but the alcohol is very expensive and they don’t give good portions whatsoever. I’m kind of used to this now when not going to Greene King chains but this place was extra stingy! Lol, other than that the food was very tasty. We sat outside since because of Covid we couldn’t sit inside. There weren’t any warmers which would’ve been nice but oh well!
Food is incredible. This is by far a must go to if you are local, and if you aren’t! The owners were personable and care about your experience, and eve apologised for the cold weather! Just lovely and cant wait to go back.
Fabulous - real home made real Indian food in a modern setting. Great menu and beautifully prepared and served.
Everyone was absolutely amazing!! The food was also great, absolutely perfect Friday evening after a long week
All the staff were incredible and the food was remarkable. AJ was kind enough to help us find the restaurant. Friendliest place in Cambridge and by far the best restaurant here. 10/10 experience.
Definitely coming back here.
Great food, really enjoyed our meal. All staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome.
Pros: Food was authentic and the service was excellent. My friend was even given free rice to take home with her meal. The manager was very chatty and approachable as was his wife. The restaurant was warm and the atmosphere wasn't overwhelming.
Cons: The tables weren't as well spaced as they could be however, this feedback was given to the manager and he took it on board. The door to the restaurant was tricky to open however, this is understandable as it was designed this way to ensure the heat within the restaurant was retained.
Lovely food, would highly recommend
Food was amazing, the service was excellent. I can't really comment on the ambience as we were having a early meal just after it opened.
Every element of our evening was first class, the staff were lovely and very keen and interested in talking to their customers, the food was the most flavoursome we have had in a long time and tasted so fresh. It was one of the best meals I have had out in a long time, would highly recommend
Fantastic food and restaurant conveniently located near Cambridge station. One of the best authentic India restaurants in Cambridge.
Great food, noticed some changes recently, equally good but I'd prefer the old way :)
Food wasn’t that great but the staff was nice.
Amazing new place great food. Thoroughly recommend
The food has a home cooked look about it. Well presented, very tasty, quite different in a very good way to most "Indian" restaurants in Cambridge, interesting menu. Have already planned return visit with friends.
Great food, great service. Not your normal Indian food. Perfect if you've outgrown mainstream Indian restaurants
Lovely little find. Friendly helpful staff. Delicious Indian food. Great service.
A hidden gem in Cambridge. I would highly recommend to everyone! The gluten free options are insane and the food is delicious. Best curry in Cambridge!
The food was as lovely as the people. Great service in difficult times and creative cuisine.
The food was delicious, I would recommend to others.
Unusually good food and service on a rainy stormy night. Dhal in particular was incredible. Felt like a really authentic place and reminded us of our travels in Kerala
This our first time visiting but we will definitely be returning very soon. The food was amazing and staff were all very helpful & welcoming.
Delicious but healthy and filling. Not too spicy! All 6 of our party loved the place and would return! Great for lunch but also for dinner as they have some good wines and the staff are very attentive and accommodating (but not too fussy/formal). Tucked away so you wouldn't necessarily know it was there, would describe it as a modern but cosy cafe by day and restaurant by night.
Food was great.. but no social distancing measures in place. Tables were dangerously close to each other.
Staff didn’t had a clue about my Open table booking.
Waiting staff didn’t have much product knowledge on the Drinks menu.
Would recommend only after the covid restrictions are gone.
Absolutely delicious vegan Indian food in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The food tasted fresh and healthy (not much oil) and the spices and flavours were spot on. We were in a large group so we ordered all the vegan options and can attest to them all being delicious! Our servers were also very helpful and friendly, and we felt secure that the restaurant was COVID-secure (servers and cooks were all wearing masks and hand sanitiser was readily available).
In terms of improvements, it would be great to have a more varied drinks menu (vegan lassis would be AMAZING) and a vegan dessert. It would also be a good idea to offer a thali option for smaller groups. Overall we really enjoyed our visit, thank you Tawa Kitchen!
Excellent food and place to eat. I strongly recommend this place!
Great fresh menu. Friendly staff. Food was excellent. A real gem.
