We went to this restaurant while visiting family. The service from when we got in was brilliant. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The food is just amazing. Between us we had tried chicken lamb and prawn dishes. We were blown away as it tasted better than any curries we had eaten before. We will visit here again when... More

We visited the India Palm a week or 2 ago (2 Adults & 3 Kids) and were completely blown away. From the minute we walked through the door we received first class service. We were unsure of what to order so the owner came and assisted us describing everything and recommending things for my wife and kids who are fussy.... More

We were passing through Dumfries for the evening, and chanced upon this restaurant. We were with my two children 6 & 4, known for their fussiness! We enjoyed the buffet - lots to eat and excellent quality. The kids tried some curry, but it also did kids food, which was a great option. The staff were really friendly and great... More

First time to India Palms and it seems we timed it right, just as the new management are settling in perfectly. The staff are friendly and attentive, but not too much so. The food was delicious - we had the Sunday buffet, which is a genuine bargain, nicely varied and topped-up to keep it hot and fresh all the time... More
