Visited tonight for dinner using a Groupon, 2 courses for 2 people £16. We were seated upon arrival and order taken. To start I had the vegetable pakora and my other half had chicken chat, both delivered soon after ordering fresh, warm and tasty. For main we had a mushroom balti and chicken korma with fried rice and a garlic... More

I have been many times to the Pir Mahal and I don't review it on every occasion. It's a good middle-of -the-road Indian restaurant. I have always enjoyed their food and their service and, no doubt, will be back again in the not too distant future. One tiny gripe - although Dosa is on the official menu, there seems to... More

Curry tasted like watery soup No seasoning and no spices. Chicken overcooked. Worst Indian meal ever

Visited here last night (1st Feb). Restaurant very quite - only one table with two occupants. Service was fantastic and the waitress was very friendly. Food was of very good quality and piping hot. Had the sharing platter which had pakora, chicken tikka and chicken chaat - was excellent and more than enough for two people. The two curries were... More

Easily the worst Indian in Hamilton. Hamilton has loads if Indian restaurants and this is the worst by some distance. Been a while but I thought I would give them another chance. Service lousy and food barely better. Complaints met with disdain. Never be back

Went to the restaurant with a Groupon voucher, 2 courses for 2 people. We both had pakora to start which was nice. We then had a chasni and a balti for main, delivered soon after ordering, warm fresh and very tasty (although curry portion was very small - not sure if that was because it was a voucher deal) overall...

I was dying of a hangover today and didn't fancy cooking. This menu looked like a good shout and I was right! The food was well-made and spicy with a lot of flavour, and it wasn't greasy at all. I really enjoyed my dinner, and I'll order from here again.

For 5.90 for 2 courses it's hard to go wrong. Pakora starters were excellent and cooked to perfection. Curry's were a bit watery for my liking and could have been thicker but maybe that's personal taste Service was quick and very helpful and pleasant Overall I would go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend

My wife and I are quite regular visitors to the Pir Mahal so I don't give feedback on every visit. We have found it to be consistently satisfactory - a good middle range Indian restaurant with an adequate selection of dishes and good value for money. What more can one say?
