visited on Thursday this week and the only reason I did not complain to staff was because I was a guest of a friend. Started with a shared combo at £10.95. This consisted of a small potato fritter, two small veg pakora and three small bits of chicken each, tasty but come on where is the value. Mains I had... More

I've visited this restaurant a few times now and each time my wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The curries were fresh with plenty of good chunks of meat, and very tasty. The rice was nice n fluffy, and the garlic nan is to die for. The waiters were very helpful with my disabled wife and nothing was... More

Food and service good, added a service charge and tried to hide it as a naan, not the only one that night. Menu clearly states Service charge not included, I don't like robbery! I won't be going back!

Came across the India Palm after looking round Dumfries with no internet and no preconceived ideas! Had a very good meal, well cooked, attentive staff and excellent value.

Me and my wife went here for lunch as we fancied Indian curry. We were disgusted by the tacky decor and upon looking at the menu, the choice was not very varied. It wasn't even reasonable for the price. The staff spent the whole time behind the bar and could not have looked any less interested in you as a... More

We went here the other night for a meal without making a reservation and all had main courses which were really tasty. I had the vegetarian dish I always have and everyone else finished what they had. The garlic naan was delicious as well and not dripping with grease as it sometimes is from the takeaway. However, the staff seemed... More

This was a meal with a fairly large group of friends, I doubt if I would have tolerated the food if I had been in a couple or with a smaller group. We ordered the combination starters, they all seemed pretty much the same, deep fried in batter and, to be honest, rather greasy and tasteless. The main courses were... More

Me and my boyfriend visited this restaurant after travelling from Lancashire to Dumfries for the weekend. No booking was required, and we were shown to a booth on arrival. We ordered a combo starter for two and a main course each. The starter arrived promptly and was plentiful and tasty. My main was the Chicken Balti with rice my boyfriend... More

I was looking forward to the meal and ordered a hot curry dish and some dhal on the side. Lots of red food colouring in the curry, thought it was tomato ketchup to start with! The Dahl had a vinegar hint which was not what I was used to - vindedahl. Overall I was disappointed. I also found it pricey... More

Having been in the UK for nearly six weeks, we began to wonder whether we would actually find a good all-round curry. This place was recommended by the owner of the B&B we were staying at, so we gave it a go. The food was very good and reasonably priced too. The only niggle throughout was the lack of interest...
