“Out of the Way but Excellent”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I bumped into this restaurant on a walk to the beach. It's in a hotel (North Beach) on what is effectively a side street and is not well advertised locally. However, it intrigued me so i went in. The restaurant is very well decorated but not as is normal in an Indian style. I immediately felt at home and was very well looked after by the waiting staff. The menu is a bit up market but delicious nevertheless. Reasonable value too.

“Consistently Very Good”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Have dined in & taken away from this restaurant many times since it opened. Have never been disappointed with any dish & we've tried a good selection from the menu. Diningroom is comfortable & staff are excellent. Adjacent bar is handy for a pre/post meal drink. Never used toilet until my last visit & I almost dropped my rating to four stars as I agree with a previous reviewer that they could certainly be improved upon. Never doubted the kitchen's hygene though as I've never "suffered" after a visit. Definitely Prestwick's top curry house pipping "Anise" & blowing away "The Taj".

“Excellent food at unbelievable prices”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

A business colleague of mine had never been to The Indian Links so I suggested we try lunch yesterday. The surprise was that a choice of 4 starters and 5 main courses was only £4.50. The presentation of the food was excellent and the food itself was extremely tasty. There was more than enough for a lunch and whilst full, we didn't feel so full up that it was going to affect the afternoon's work. Great service, great food. Would definitely go back.
One thing which might benefit the restaurant is to create some smaller areas for the tables to sit within, either by plants or small moveable partitions. It would break up the single space and improve the ambience when the number of covers are lower, such as at lunchtime.

“Plentiful but standards need improvement.”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

You can not fault their special deals for value, nor the size of the portions which are ample to excessive if you compare the mixed starter which is a meal itself, however the economic pressures to operate this restaurant do show.

The food is tasty but without doubt re-fired, the pakora / bhaji / chat we received in the mixed starter had been fried in oil having been previously cooked in advance of service. Main courses we've had are fair enough, but there's just that missing something you can't quite put your finger on. I couldn't fault the service and front of house appears clean but here's my concern, if you have standards of a certain level in one area you must assume others have the potential to be similar... The gents toilets are not clean, loo seat a disgrace and on the door handles very old dirty water marks from people washing their hands but not drying them, leaving the handle filthy not having been cleaned in months. The devil is in the detail and I would hope the kitchen has higher standards.

I have eaten here several times and would return, the food is good and the operator is trying very hard to make this work in a location which does have the potential.
