Tasty cuisine

Popped into the India Palm by myself as I was feeling hungry after a day out at Ayr races. The fact that I was on my own did not affect the service as I was shown to one of the comfortable booth tables. I have visited before but this time new staff were in evidence always being attentive without... read more

Enjoyed a good lunch last week. Portions were perfect for lunchtime, and dishes tasty. Service and décor were a good standard. Looking forward to returning

From entering, to being seated, friendly, knowledgable staff. courteous, attentive, without hovering, but never leaving us waiting for drinks or courses. The food was tasty, hot, and very well presented. We're currently trying to work out a way to visit more often, this would definitely be out local restaurant if we lived closer than 300 miles.

Visiting Dumfries overnight so didn't book a table. The service and food was fantastic especially the lamb sizzler. The manager/owner was attentive without being overbearing. Also the staff were extremely good and friendly even charged my mobile phone for me. Excellent value for money would highly recommend.

Visited the restaurant without booking as we were in Dumfries overnight. Can't fault the service or the food. The lamb sizzler was amazing, the manager/owner was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The staff couldn't do enough for us even charged my mobile phone for me. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

When asked about the flavours and dishes, we found... More
