Some may just walk straight out, glad we didn’t! We got greeted by a lovely woman, unbeknown she’d be serving AND cooking herself! Food was authentic and tasty 😋 It had no airs and graces; get your own drinks out of the fridge, along with...More

Mr Barrie cooked me the most amazing Hybrid vegetable curry I have ever experienced. Mrs Barry is an wonderful hostess and I can not praise the welcome we received enough. The food is fab, the ambiance fantastic and the cost amazing .

My wife and I discovered the Golden Temple purely by chance, having tried its better-known competitors in both Bodmin and Wadebridge and found them very average. The menu was displayed on a chalk board and was very simple, offering a selection of well-known BIR dishes...More
