Went here while we were on a weekend away to Kendal. Saw the reviews and decided to try it out.
Beautifully decorated, lovely, friendly staff and the food was superb.
We had a large starter to share and two mains, and a bottle of wine, with a pint and a coke and it came to £55. Whivh was much less than we expected because of the quality and quantity of the meals. The manager also let us choose any free drink we wanted because it was my fiancés birthday.
Can't fault anything about India. Will definitely return when we have another weekend break!

Thank Helen C

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We chose this restaurant when staying for one night in Kendal due to all the positive reviews seen on here. They were all absolutely right! The food and service were spot on and prices reasonable. Would not hesitate to return if in the area. Only issue was it took ages to find, although it is close to town centre it us well tucked away!!

Where do i start, second visit still the best! Welcome with a smile, service first class, very friendly staff, this time i had chom chom and my patner had butter chicken and it was the best butter chicken! You can taste and tell its freshly cooked.

And the best part was when the owner think his name is jay going round all the tables making sure if everythings ok and a quick chat really nice touch.

Cant wait for our third visit!

“Excellent Indian Restaurant”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We travelled to Kendal specifically for this restaurant due to the good reviews here on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service very good indeed. We had a chance to chat with the owner who was very engaging and pleasant to say the very least, a lovely, kind and generous young man.

Next time we are in the Lake district we will certainly pay another visit. Thank you for a lovely dining experience.

Please note* There is a car park within a 100 yards from the restaurant.

“Consistently excellent food”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Visited the restaurant last night with some friends - this is the third time I have been here in the last few months & each time the food & service exceeds all expectations - lovely flavours, generous portions, freshly cooked good quality produce, great house wine & served by the efficient & very knowledgable waiters - twho are more than happy to help you choose the perfect meal for your individual tastes - even if its not on the already extensive menu !

We were all so impressed we have booked to go again in a few weeks (we usually go somewhere different each time we have a get-together but decided to return here next time as this was one of the best indian meals we have had).

Having looked at the recent reviews I can't understand the (only) negative review - were they really eating at the same place as us - I don't think so !!!

I can only think that perhaps they are from a rival establishment that knows it can't compete with the excellent food on offer at 'India' & I think their review should be disregarded.

I'm already looking forward to my next visit there - well done 'India'.
