“one of the best indians we've been to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Please note: This review is based on a number of visits over the last 2 years and includes takeaway orders.

The staff are fantastic and the food here is to die for. The atmosphere is peaceful and an enjoyment to behold. The selection of meals available here is fantastic! Really good value for money and also caters for vegetarians more so than most food establishments. usually you would be pawned of with meat substituted with veg however here, they offer quorn or veg or even a half half! If your tight for pennies or just fancy a night in, make it a thursday or a sunday when they offer 2 for 1 curries. Not only does it taste amazing and have a huge selection on offer, but delivery extrordinarily quick!

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We've lived a couple of miles from Hoole for over 20 years and my wife and I were there a week or so ago and decided to try this unpretentious-looking restaurant as it advertised winning the 'best curry in Chester' award! The welcome was very warm and the service most courteous. The food was delicious - just the right amount of spice/heat, as we had asked (didn't order the hot hot 'winning curry'!) A hidden gem we called it as we'd hardly noticed it before , but we'll be back soon.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

First time we've used this for takeaway, and I'm afraid it will be our last. Rice & nan were good, but chicken tandoori looked more tikka like (pale yellow instead of vibrant red) and lacked flavour. The portion of chicken korma was very small: only 6 small pieces of chicken, 2 of which had a little gristle on them. We're disappointed because the reviews on here were so fabulous - perhaps sitting in the restaurant makes a difference?

Hi Mandy, thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm really sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your tandoori chicken. We avoid using any artificial food colouring, as it is a much healthier option. Our chicken colour is achieved solely through the spices and marinade. Apologies if it lacked flavour. Friday was a very busy night and perhaps the chicken was not left to marinade for long enough.
I have passed your comments on to the tandoori chef, who also apologises.
I sincerely hope to see you again, and also hope to restore your confidence in our takeaway food.
Thank you

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Hoole Indian gives you amazing food for great prices. I never think of going to anywhere else for a take away. The restaurant section is fantastic. Once the food is in front of you, you lose your track of mind as the flavours take over. Such an anazing place to eat. The customer service is second to none. You cannot get any better. They should have more awards than they already do! A must visit for Indian food lovers. A MUST!!!

“Small but big on Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Staying at a B & B nearby we located this restaurant accidently as we were taking a look around Hoole. We decided to return to it for our evening meal. The cosy atmosphere was brilliant and matched by the excellent food and friendly service. We can honestly say that it was the best Indian food we have had in recent times. We will certainly return for some more as and when we visit this area again. Highly recommended.
