We were staying in the caravan park at Hampton Road. We walked the dog the 20 minutes journey to Blue Diamond to check it out. You have to know where you're going when you visit restaurants. We have high standards. We approved of what we saw so we walked dog to the caravan then caught bus back to Highfield Road.
Shami kebabs tender, moist full of flavour with fresh salad. Lamb balti and lamb with spinach dishes, good portions, tender meat, excellent. Pillau rice fresh and light. Pint of Indian beer tasty. Wine we chose was £13.95 and wife loved it. Our youg boy had eaten greasy fish and chips earlier in the day and was suffering. the boss gave him a drink of ginger which helped.
Suprised to find the boss was English.
We have been all over for good currys including BBC recomended 4 star Ma Goa in Putney when we were in London. This was as good.
One small criticism. One or two popadoms had not dried at the edge. The sauce tray for the popadoms was lovely and flavourful.
Whole lot came to £45 bearing in mind we had drinks.
When you found a good'n you always keep it on your list. When in Blacpool next time we will make a beeline for the Blue Diamond.

An aside. Two mouth customers were trying to be difficult appearing to want to get out of paying for the food they had wolfed down enthusiastically. All the customers in the restaurant told them to shut up, pay the bill and leave.

I visited here with work colleagues after recommendations by a local taxi driver. Overall the service and food were top notch, all of us were happy with our meals. We had mixed tikka starters - sheek kebab, lamb tikka, chicken tikka and onion bhaji served with salad; which was quite a bargain for £3.75 each. For mains we had chicken samber, lamb naga, chilli chicken masala and chicken pathia, all the mains were delicious with good quality meat, my chicken tikka was very tender, and pathia sauce was very tasty, the naan bread was soft and fluffy. The service from the owner was good, and not over the top, he even gave us complimentary drinks at the end of the meal. This would be the only restaurant I would visit if I return to the area, as the food tastes like the restaurant food I'm used to from the Indian restaurants in the Birmingham balti triangle.

Myself and my partner thoroughly enjoyed our meal at The Blue Diamond on Saturday night. We had two courses each and everything tasted amazing!! By far the best Indian meal I have sampled...and I've had a few!!

Staff were very pleasant and on the ball with everything...would 100% recommend and will 100% be going back :)
