I visit Blackpool most weekends so decided to consult Trip Advisor when I wanted a change from my usual "safe" Indian take aways. Up popped Lahore Palace restaurant which was well recommended. On this visit I fully agree with the previous positive reviews after enjoying an excellent take away meal,
Location of the restaurant is on a busy South Shore street inside the Sandhurst Hotel. The restaurant is the actual hotel dining room. There is plenty of street parking nearby although on a busy Saturday evening during the illuminations places were at a premium.
Once inside, the restaurant is well appointed - very neat and tidy. The staff are pleasant and the food was first class. The only problem that they have is a lack of actual diners. There was no one inside at 8pm. This is a real shame as they deserve much more custom with the quality of the food on offer.
The menu consists of the usual curry favourites plus some unusual dishes that are specialities of the house. They do kids specials and family banquets plus other specials through the week. I had Rashmi Kebab, which was a tender fresh lamb pattie covered with an omelette to start and Jungle Lamb for the main. This dish was excellent. Tender chunks of lamb cooked with potatoes and lots of vegetables. Like a spicy stew - full of flavour. The cost was £12 including a chapati - a bargain for this quality.
This restaurant thoroughly deserves its good reviews and, from what I saw, it deserves more custom. Maybe some people are put off by thinking that it is a hotel that is having a stab at Indian cuisine. The fact is that the quality food served here rivals some of the top indian restaurants in the area and is certainly in my top 3 of Blackpool curry houses. I'm not sure of its position in that top 3 but if the consistency is there when we return to dine in, then I'm not sure who could beat it - certainly no one at this price.
Already looking forward to a return to dine in.......... Highly Recommened
