Unusually for a sitcom of the time, this contains no laughter track. See more »
The spelling of Allaudin's name changes between series 1 and series 2, with a series 2 episode even using the new spelling of Alaudin in its title. Worse still, Hansa Mia(h)'s spelling changes from episode to episode. See more »
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!
