Lovely experience

We went a couple of weeks ago. The resturant was really quiet so we were a little concerned but we had a brilliant evening. Lovely food only let down by the naan, in my opinion to crispy. Our server was a brilliant gent really chatty. Would recommend to a friend

I visted the India Palm Restaurant in Dumfries with 9 friends last Wednesday and had a great meal. Also the service was great, quick but not rushed and the price was reasonable about £25 per head for starters & main meal and a few beers. The waiting staff were very friendly, helpful and had some good banter with the group.... More

We arrived in Dumfries rather late and most of the restaurants were closed, but luckily India Palm was open and we had the pleasure of dining here. It was some of the best Indian food that I've ever had. Their curries were scrumptious and their naan was perfect. We met the gracious owner and his son and chatted with them... More

A load of us (about 40) came for a meal without a booking. The staff were very very helpful and made up a table big enough for all of us! The food was really tasty. One of the nicest meals I had in a long while. Would definitely recommend

We haven't been to this restaurant for many years and now it is under new management. We thought we would give the lunch special a try out and we were pleasantly surprised. The portion size was not cut down as far as we could see and in any case it was more than adequate for our needs. The restaurant looked... More

My experience with the new owners of this restaurant who are very friendly, accommodating and explained the different curries to me and the family at the buffet. Nothing is a problem and they even cut up peppers for my fussy granddaughter and are very good with the little one. Been back several times and the service just gets even better... More
