“Expensive and salty”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

First time I had a takeaway since they re opened, meal was more expensive than most Indians around.

The chicken in the balti and Dansak was salty almost unedible the sag aloo was on the other hand was good.

“Really nice but a bit on the pricey side”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Whilst staying in Probus we decided to go to Gulshan for a meal. The food was absolutely delicious, and not at all greasy. We will definitely eat here again next time we are in the area

“Saturday Evening at The Gulshan”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

As we live in a village adjacent to Probus, 4 of us decided to pop up for a special meal to celebrate with a friend who has recently left the area. We were welcomed by Lianne and Nathan and sat down on the very nice pre-eating suite to a drink and a chat.
The restaurant was rather busy but nevertheless the staff were attentive and took our order reasonably quickly. Alan the chef popped in and out of the kitchen and greeted us as well but I was rather surprised to see that he appeared to be alone in the kitchen.
The Gulshan is a modern, light and fresh restaurant so we enjoyed being led to our table to continue our deliberations. Poppadoms and a great selection dips arrived and we tucked in with zeal. All well so far.
After 45 mins or so starters arrived some great some not so great (A Prawn Problem was discovered, safe but rather chewy)
This course over we awaited our main courses, another round of drinks, and it slowly became obvious that 'Chef' was under pressure. Unfortunately, by the time mains arrived almost a hour had passed and the wait had deleted our taste buds somewhat.
To be frank the mains were poor and appeared somewhat sticky and stewed. Alas also the Prawn problem, although identified at the previous round had not been solved or re-visited.
We expressed our disappointment and Chef kindly offered a round of drinks as a compensatory gesture.
I have eaten at The Gulshan a number of times and have always found the food to be 1st class, if a little different to the run of the mill Indian Restaurant meals. PLEASE Alan take this as a friendly warning :- You have a lovely restaurant, with good amenities and good attentive staff but you need to beef up the kitchen performance. Speed and quality food are of Primary importance in any dining experience and on this occasion you failed.
I will return but if others experience this same disappointment I doubt they will. Quality Indian Cuisine must deliver 'what it says on the tin' or the business will suffer.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

A fantastic meal at a reasonable price. We had two Jalfrezi with rice, 4 pompadoms with four dips for £29.

The quality of chicken was fantastic, not processed or dry or pre-cooked.

Staff are very cheerful and happy to help.

HIghly reccomended.

“What a Surprise”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

It's not often that you come across a fine dining Indian restaurant. It's even more of a surprise in the middle of a tiny Cornish village, but that is just what Gulshan is. We have eaten there on our last two trips to that part of Cornwall and have not been disappointed. Even my brother, a food discerner if ever there was one, was delighted with it. Everything we've tried has been excellent and there are some unusual dishes to try. This is not your average "Indian". Go and try for yourself!
