Having been to several Indian restaurants we found this to really only be an average one. The seating arrangements are booths, which is quite good as it does shield you from excessive noise. The starters of onion bargee and shish kebab were very tasty, However, from there it went downhill a bit. The main courses of chicken tikka cham cham,and... More

We visit this Indian Restaurant on a very regular basis, at least every 2 weeks for the previous 20+ years, as we find the food and the service excellent. This is a family run traditional Indian restaurant, where the owners and staff really make you feel welcome. The Chef, Manic, cooks an excellent madras, just the right heat and the... More

Tried this restaurant while working away. So glad i did, the service was second to none,attentive but not getting on your nerves. I had the banquet option on the weds night. A fine starter and the lamb vindaloo. Always a gamble in an unfamiliar place. I threw caution to the wind and waded in. Excellent heat and flavour balance,just how... More

Dined here with my partner and was very happy with the staffs welcoming. Felt like a lovely family run restaurant and the staff was very polite and helpful. Our meals were delicious and very traditional. The meat was melt in the mouth. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a nice Indian in Louth.

On holiday and spotted this place as we drove by... What a find, a lovely setting, great service, great food and great value. It was banquet night and you get to choose 5 courses for just over £10 Both myself and my wife loved it and would rate it as one of the best meals ever... Will definitely recommend

Just a quick update.....went back to the Helal for another memorable evening last month and amazingly it was better than ever. How they manage to produce such astonishingly high standards in every department is a mystery to us but long may it continue!

Went for a takeaway last night and got talking to a chap whilst waiting. Turns out he's eaten curry all over the world, including India on several occasions and he rates the Helal as the best! I couldn't agree more. The food here is just fantastic, the staff are friendly and talkative. My curry experience is limited to Britain, but... More
