Tandoori Nights

Tandoori Nights


12 part comedy drama for Channel 4, 1985-1987

The story of Jimmy Sharma, involved the restaurant trade for many a year since opening his first establishment in the East End of London. Now he has worked his way up to owning the opulent dining-room the Jewel In The Crown, successful for more than ten years. Then Rashid, a discontented Bengali waiter, leaves his employ and opens a rival restaurant, The Far Pavilions, right across the road, its flock wallpaper proving that his venue is a little less exclusive. Originally there were several possible titles, Tandoori Is The Night, Chappati's Over and Paperback Raita all being in the melting pot before Tandoori Nights was settled upon.
