My family have eaten from here now a number of times and I must say that I thought the food was decent. The service is what you would expect from a good eatery and the price is reasonable. Tonight though, I asked for a nan bread with my meal instead of rice and they said that wouldn't be a problem.... More

Before we moved away this was our favourite Indian restaurant so we were itching to get down here as soon as we moved back! Didn't realise it is under new owners and unfortunately we were less than impressed! Overcharged for our order (by £13!!) And the food was over cooked, chewy and cold. Luckily there are other better restaurants close... More

Me and my boyfriend had been visiting castle ward and decided to head into downpatrick for a curry! The food was absolutely sensational at the passage to India! I'd go as far as saying it was the best Indian food I've ever eaten! And service was great, we were even given vegetable pakoras to try in the house!

We went here for a meal last Saturday night. The food was wonderful, the flavours were great and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff were friendly and the surrounding were nice. I would definitely recommend coming here to eat. It is by far the best Indian restaurant in Downpatrick and I have been to both. Top notch food!! Plus... More

After the celebrations of new years eve, I was feeling too delicate to cook, and so I took the family to The Passage to India in Downpatrick. I love this place, the food is fantastic and if I'm not sure of something the waitress or waiter is always happy to explain. The prices are great and being able to bring... More
