Have had three take aways from this restaurant over the last month. And have to admit this is one of the best currys i have had. Chicken Naga is not everyones favourite dish. But to be honest you need to taste it to appreciate it. And the staff are very helpful to tell you what your dish consist of. But... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the meal at Himachol. Always nice to be greeted by friendly staff. Very wide choice on the menu, the food was well cooked and well presented. Great value too. Recommended.

Went there last night and had a very nice meal. The staff greet you when you enter the restaurant and are attentive throughout. I had a vindaloo which was very hot and spicy. This is not always the case, I'm sure a lot of restaurants tone the heat down but not this place. Overall this is a very good restaurant... More

Himachol is at the far end of Ashley Road in Poole, a street with at least a dozen Asian restaurants or takeways, in a slightly gritty part of town. Competition is fierce, and I am sure that it helps keep Himachol on its toes. Although it's unprepossessing from the outside, inside it's quite bright with eclectic wall decorations, including traditional... More

Where do I start. Well we walked out because the service was so poor. 30 minutes for the starter to turn up and when we questioned it the waiter had an attitude. We paid and left, but questioned why such a delay. We were advised takeaways take priority. Not happy. Pathetic service and what food we had (after such a... More

My work colleagues and I visit after a long afternoon at work and they never rush you and always look after you.

the food was excellent and the atmosphere was good. Very busy so you would need to book. However, the service was a little slow particularly between the starter and main course. I think this was due to them being very busy.as a couple came in later and I observed they had their food quite quickly. I would recommend this restaurant... More
