Great

Lovely friendly helpful staff. Food great, very tasty & good value for money. Large portions for a family meal, 3 main courses between 4 was more than adequate

My wife, son and myself stopped over in Dumfries on our way north and enjoyed an excellent Indian buffet meal on Sunday July 19. The food was delicious and plentiful and the staff most courteous.

We had to stop in Dumfries for a night during our 2 weeks road trip holidays in Scotland. We unfortunately reached there quite late (around 8pm), and it was literally a nightmare to find a restaurant that accept children after 8pm. We tried 5 or 6 restaurants who didn't want to let us in. Luckily, we found the India Palm.... More

Ate here while staying in Dumfries - if, like me you like your curries very hot then go for the Phaal, I did & it was delicious. Plenty other dishes to choose from too if you don't want them so spicy..

I haven't eaten much Indian food. The host explained the vast menu. We ordered four different dishes and enjoyed all of them. Very reasonable prices.

The staff were attentive, warm and very friendly. It was the best Restaurant... More

This is a large restaurant with good staff and most importantly great food. We were visitors and used Trip Advisor to find an Indian restaurant near to our hotel. Service was very quick (maybe a touch rushed) and we really enjoyed the food. We will be back on our next visit.
