Read this next line twice if you have to, but it DOES state as follows - the best Indian food in Ireland, bar none, is served, however unexpectedly and improbably, in the Khayber restaurant in Galgorm near Ballymena. Nonsense? An exaggeration? I've tried dozens of such establishments, all over the world, and this one comfortably comes out tops. Starters -... More

I only review this nice Indian Restaurant occasionally although dining here often. It remains the best in the area and I have graded it on that basis. I have also had the privilege of visiting the kitchen and I know they have first class chefs cooking with authentic ingredients. Some of the cuisine is tailored to local palate so if... More

We always love to return to the Khayber. This visit was as good if not better than the last. We had Pakora, mixed Tandoori meats first, buttered chicken, mixed Balti vindaloo strength! Fantastic, with 1 pilau rice and peshwari naan! Outstanding really, along with a lovely tasting bottle of SB! Looking forward to our next visit! Great service, friendly staff!... More

I'm not really a big fan of Indian food, but always enjoy a trip to the Khayber. On a recent visit, the power failed to the whole area while we were waiting for our meal - not their fault and nothing they could do about it, but gave our entire party complimentary drinks. Needless to say, we went back for... More

Second time we've been, we try to stop in when we pop over from Bradford to visit my mum. The service is always great, the atmosphere is lovely and the food is fantastic. Will recommend this place to anyone who's in the area and looking for a great curry!

I have recently eaten here for a special anniversary and I am so impressed by the way Iqbal has treated us by doing extra things like plate and table decorations that he made the entire meal even more pleasureable. The food was spectacular and very filling and the fact that Iqbal put us in a quiet corner was even better,... More

We had the early bird four course meal which was absolutely brilliant. The chicken tikka starter was possibly the best I have ever had. Generous portions and attentive staff in glamorous surroundings. Perfect.
