Well I am not sure how to rate this as the food was really tasty and the portions a nice size. However it appears to be run by one chef & a waiter. It will probably be one of my more memorable eating experiences as it resembled Fawltey Towers in some manners. We arrived & they sent us to the... More

If you're up for something a bit fun and different with hands down the best curry I've tasted then look no further. From having to write down your own order to collecting your own beer from the fridge and glass off the tray, if you've got an open mind then it's a very enjoyable experience. The service that is offered... More

I inquisitively popped my head around the front door to be greeted by Mrs Barrie and a friendly assistant. I looked at the simplistic menu on the white board and had to give it a go.... The service was basic but effective and the food was bloody fantastic! *****

Mrs Barrie is still cooking the best curry in Cornwall... with great service. The menu is pleasingly simple and the quality of the food is exceptional. Most main dishes are about £5... so you are going to get great value for money. Recently refurbished, so really pleasant surroundings and easy street parking outside the restaurant. Can't fault it... give it... More

Met at the door by a smiling Mrs Barrie. Seems she and her husband are both retired but have returned to the restaurant they established in 1985 where they are loved by the local community. So this is probably why you write out your own order and take it to her in the kitchen and help yourself to drinks from... More

Then told you can choose and serve your own drinks from 'over there' as a hand swishes towards a full bar and upright chiller cabinets!!!! Oh well, lets get with... More

This a humble restaurant, with poor decor, where you have to write your own order from a limited badly handwritten menu. The sort of place you would walk into and walk straight out - BIG MISTAKE. The food is wonderful. The service is courteous. The prices are far too low and the food is wonderful - yes, it's that good.... More

We went to bodmin for a weekend getaway with families and friends. Our friends celebrated their wedding anniversary and so she checked the reviews for this restaurant and had high hopes about it and so we went. Wrong decision though. The place was terrible, good for takeaway but very bad for dine in(reviews suggested otherwise). The place was so dusty,... More

Went for a curry last night, the first one in roughly 8 years. We went to the Golden Temple in Bodmin and what a bizarre but totally wonderful experience it was. I tried to phone to make sure we could get in but the number was wrong or cut off? So we went anyway. Upon entering we were greeted by... More

We went there knowing that it was going to be a different experience due to the previous reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was great and suited me my wife and kids. Reasonable prices for a real quality meal in a really relaxed atmosphere. We will be returning without a doubt.
