Bravo!
1 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw many episodes of "Tandoori Nights" while working in Bombay, India. I began to look forward to every opportunity to view this extremely well produced series about a South Asian immigrant to England who opens a restaurant in London (I believe he was a lawyer in India, according to the plot). Sayeed Jaffery plays the part to perfection, and the other cast members are equally excellent as his mother, two grown daughters, restaurant staff, relatives from abroad, and various other characters. There is comedy, irony, and quite a few poignant scenes in the series. Sometimes hilariously funny, sometimes profound, this is a one-of-a-kind production with values we rarely witness on television in the USA. Highly recommended!
