Eaten here countless times over more than 25 years and got to agree with others. It's still perfectly acceptable, but no longer the best in the town or a standout in the area as it once was. A further huge note of caution. On my last visit was charged a la carte prices on a banquet night - apparently you... More

Excellent food and service as always. Had a room upstairs to ourselves and a dedicated waiter who looked after us very well indeed.

This is the original Indian in Buckingham, and it hasn't changed much in that time. The dishes are all well prepared and traditionally served. Staff are great and the atmosphere is much better than some of the other curry houses in town.

We look forward to visiting the Dipalee each time we stay with relatives in Buckingham. The food and service are excellent. We have had many meals and they have always been brilliant. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff are friendly and helpful - always. The restaurant is always busy when we visit - booking is advisable. We have... More

My takeaway chilli lamb meal was very oily. When i opened the lid it had a layer of liquid floating on the top. I took it back and asked for a simular meal. My replacement meal was no better. Every meal from here lookes and tastes the same, very bland. I will not be using this restaraunt again. Much better... More

This restaurant has been the staple Indian restaurant for almost 30 years. The decor is good and the service is good.Th eprices are very reasonable - especially on a banquet night. So why the criticism - if you have never eaten there before, then it is fine, but if you visit more than once, then the food is very the... More

My husband and I have been here on a number of occasions and have always found the food to be very good and the service excellent. The interior is nice, smart and comfortable and the prices reasonable. I would recommend and will continue to use this restaurant.

The Uncle and Aunt are regulars here for many many years and always said it was a great place. We really enjoyed our dishes the atmosphere was lovely and they were... More

Having travelled around the world and dining at a variety of Indian restaurants over the last twenty years. I was pleasantly surprised when I was invited out with some great mates, that had been regulars at the Dipalee for over 13 years. I now know why they have been regulars for 13 years! Great food and friendly staff!
