Masoom Tandoori, restaurant review, Thorpe Bay, Essex

We have had many meals and takeaways from the Masoom in Thorpe Bay Essex and the food is always good. This particular evening, we had a vegetable bhaji full of carrots, celery, potato, green beans, sweet corn, courgette, onion, peas, cauliflower and cabbage – all fresh and coated in a medium spicy sauce, rather than in a sauce like the vegetable curry side dish. It was a pleasant alternative to our usual vegetable curry or sag aloo. Pilau rice very good and not greasy. We have garlic naan medium well done, and it always comes out perfect. The chicken tikka nawabi dansak is great, but beware the chillis as they are full of hot seeds. We recommend you take the chillis out on arrival or ask for less of them. Its tangy, sweet and sour and hot. The cucumber raitha is great and creamy with enough cucumber. Cobra beers always nice and cold. We had a lamb Korai which was full of fresh red and green peppers and onions in a tangy medium sauce with lovely soft lamb. 

The prices are very fair for the quality of food. After dinner chocolates are a refreshing orange milk chocolate, which is a great change from the traditional mint chocolate/after eights that one usually gets after an Indian meal.
