Restaurants within the Leigh area

Alishan Restaurant

149 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DH, UK – 01732 770616

Just had a takeaway from Alishan - absolutely faultless. Quicker than expected delivery to our house, arrived piping hot and deliciously fresh food. 10/10!

Our favourite Indian for a fair distance, this is an excellent spot with great staff

Mamma Mia

163 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1BX, UK – 01732 353660

Genuine authentic Sicilian family experience. Totally recommend. A joyous relief from chain restaurants

Cosy and laid back. Delicious food. They let me take my leftovers with me in a box. Would recommend!

Gaab Kao

117 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DL, UK – 01732 358730

This is an excellent place to eat in our little town. I’ve been here several times and it’s my # 1 recommended place in Tonbridge. Last time I visited, I was joined by a friend who used to live in Thailand and she found it very good and authentic. My absolute favourite is the papaya salad but no matter what you order I’m sure you will get it just right.

Friendly staff and excellent selection of Thai dishes. Generous portions too. Nice relaxed atmosphere and good service.

Chinese Restaurants serving the Leigh area

Oriental Buffet Club

96 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1AP, UK – 01732 361666

As buffet food I doubt this could ever credibly be five star unless each dish had it's own silver service serving waiter. However as buffet food goes I've been coming here for years and the quality is consistent. Dishes are almost never out, but allowed to run down and occasionally replaced rather than just topped up. The selection of dishes is wide and to my taste at least. The value is good. The staff friendly.

Not the best but still very good. I skipped the Chinese for some more exotic food like the Indian and Nepalese. If you want quick and satisfying curry this is the place. The lomain noodles were a little over cooked but not complaining because the price was great. I was told by one of the wait staff that diner selection is better, so I will be returning. Located a reasonable walking distance from the train station. Lovely and clean dinning area.

Honeymoon Chinese Restaurant

2-4 Barden Rd, Tonbridge TN9 1TS, UK – 01732 358888

Excellent for parties. Had 20+ of us there and we all got served particularly quickly despite having mostly different meals. Staff were very fiend ly, quick, and efficient. Food was excellent. Had the won't ton soup which was outstanding. Can't wait to try more dishes from here.

Food was fantastic, service was excellent. Had a great night for a midweek treat, and the staff were lovely. Will definitely return

Chow Chow Cuisine

183 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1BX, UK – 01732 358931

Lovely manager! Chow chow go above and beyond for their customers! Highly recommend the salt & chilli squid!

Best Chinese in Tonbridge and always deliver earlier than estimated

Indian Restaurants and takeaways in or near Leigh

Tez indian Takeaway

179 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1BX, UK – 01732 366992

Had really awesomeeee food here now every time I’ve gotten a take away which has been probably a dozen times now the last year. Always turned up piping hot so really can’t complain! Oh, also the the delivery driver in the shorts (in all weathers!?) and the beard is not only friendly but absolute eye candy and can definitely deliver my dinner every time!!

Friendly, punctual service, good food, super hot chicken tikka madras. Boxes could be labelled more clearly, but otherwise a good takeout experience.

Spice Zone Tonbridge

41 Quarry Hill Rd, Tonbridge TN9 2RS, UK – 01732 350308

Nice food, friendly service. Menu change has dropped my favourite starter off.

Great food, reasonable prices especially on banquet nights.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Pizza Express

91 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1DR, UK – 01732 368787

The decor is amazing here and a real credit to Pizza Express celebrating C E Powell, the Nobel Physicist who was born and went to school in Tonbridge, he pioneer Photography for Particle Physics, all around is artwork in the shape of the tracks left by charged particles as they passed through cloud/bubble chambers. The food is the standard fare for Pizza Express, but great value if you have a student in your party using their discount, very impressive and substantial. Love the fact that they now cater for vegans. There is only one minor quibble for me and that is that it can be noisy with the open plan kitchen and restaurant, but that might just be me!

Really friendly and helpful staff. We made a mistake by ordering a chilli-laden pizza, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful in exchanging it for something easier to eat. It was appreciated!

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Gurkha planet

16 Avebury avenue, Tonbridge TN9 1TN, UK – 01732 352074

We had a lovely date night, the food was great and so was the service. I’ve walked past the restaurant many times and didn’t know it was there. It took a google search for me to discover you on open table. Gurkha Planet is a hidden gem providing an authentic eating experience. We would definitely go back when we are next in the area. Maybe it’s worth getting a A-board for outside so that you stand out from the surrounding fast food places! Thanks you, from Jen & Stu

Great traditional food. The menu is slightly limited but don't let that put you off. Always have a good meal here.

Basil

26-28 High St, Tonbridge TN9 1EJ, UK

Great place to chill. Even on a sunny day as it's bright and spacious inside. Great coffee and if the one piece of cake I had is anything to go by (and i'd image it is judged by how amazing the other cakes and food looks!) a very good place to eat as well

Nice place, quality ingredients but over £17 for 2 bacon rolls and 2 milkshakes... Hmmm...

A regular haunt of ours. Great food, cocktails and some lovely ales. A varied and tasty menu and different meal deals on a daily basis. Mustn't forget the lovely and welcoming staff in this establishment.

Perfect place for a cocktail and food! Amazing staff and great atmosphere!

Great pub with a nice range of real ale and a huge collection of coktails. And some nice fresh Pizzas. And some good pub games. Staff also are friendly and a good laugh.

Not been here for about 3 years. Really nice quirky pub, friendly staff.Good choice Shepherd Neame linked beers/lagers. Their main food "pizza"had a really good review & choice looked excellent. Will try next time! Well worth a visit if in area.
