“Excellent. No complaints”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Recently myself and my two drunken friends took a notion for a curry. Knowing that The India Palm has an excellent reputation we chose to go there.

We were greeted by two very lovely young men who seated us at a table. We for some reason decided that the table was not suitable for us but they were more than happy to shift us to one of our choosing.

The service and food they gave us was second to none. They were happy to put up with our banter and we felt welcome enough to have chats with the staff. Although they were busy nothing seemed a bother.

I did feel guilty about the mess we left the table in but they didn't seem to mind and even gave us free drinks at the bar when we left.

If you are looking for a fun night out with excellent Indian cuisine I'd recommend this place. It's really the only place to go if you want good Indian food. See you soon guys!

This was our second visit and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was fresh, good quality and the portions generous. Very reasonably priced and service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

“Not the best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

I ordered what was supposed to be a house speciality and it was a basic dish with some chilli pickle stirred in. i ordered chicken tikka and got lamb. The vegetable pilau was simply boiled rice with a scoop of frozen veg and the naan bread was like a slice of toast. My pal ordered another speciality dish but told the waiter that he was disappointed and his pilau rice was plain boiled rice. Nice place but disappointing food.

“Good food but wouldn't trust it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We had a great meal at the India Palm and didn't notice getting mischarged like some of the other reviews (thought maybe it was just our maths!). Having said that my husband had ordered a lamb dish but got given beef. When we pointed out that they had bought beef the waiter seemed embarassed at having got caught out but assured us that it was lamb. It definitely was not lamb - a good curry anyway, but had we been Hindu or not ate beef for whatever reason it would have been a much bigger issue.
