Went with few colleagues as this restaurant was recommended. I was pleasantly surprised. when you order your meals, don't order very spicy that is 6 and above unless you can really tolerate that spicy. Great Service. Nice Food Parking is a pain.

We LOVE Indian Palace! We've been frequent customers (eating in and take away), over the last 15 years! We've NEVER had a bad meal or less than perfect service there. They are always consistent. The owners Rose and Narinder make it a special place! Cannot recommend highly enough!

A really good range of dishes on the menu including all the favourites as well as some interesting new ones (also catering well for vegetarians. We enjoyed a Goan fish curry and a lamb sagwalla. And an excellent shared tandoori platter on a steaming... More

Always a worry when you return to a place after having an amazing first visit. Will it live up to expectations? Well don't be concerned with that when you go to The Indian Palace, the food and service cannot be faulted. I was introduced to dosai and thoroughly enjoyed the lamb version. Rose was as beautiful and attentive as before,... More

We had the New Years banquet; it was a great and filling meal, enough for leftovers which they offered for us to take home. The customer service from all staff was also incredible!

Have visited a couple of times now, so must review, because on both counts the food and service was excellent. Vegetarian options are good (as is often the case with Indian restaurants) but the food has been exceptionally good. I can definitely recommend the Palak Paneer. Service is of a high standard whether you are walk in or a reservation.... More

I went to Indian Palace on Saturday night in order to have a nice romantic dinner with my girlfriend and it was a complete disaster. Our oder was taken by the trainee waiter at 8PM. We then were conversing and didn't look at the time. The same waiter came back over an hour later to ask us if he did... More
