Waiter was slow, uninterested and bordering on rude, food took nearly an hour to arrive and was average at best. Had they been busy I could have understood however there were about 7 tables occupied in the whole place, one of which got their main courses well before us despite arriving after we did.

Friendly staff which I couldn't fault for attentive service and friendliness but the food was average at best. Reminded me more of a chicken stew.

I've been coming for 20 years; they seem to have "spiced it up" a bit of late, but it was good grub even back when it was rough and ready. Great name, too!

My friends and I visited the Indo Cymru after sampling a few hostelries along Cathedral Rd - another story! The staff in the Restaurant were exceptionally helpful and provided cold Cobras on our arrival. The food arrived quickly and was hot in both temperature and spikiness. I had the chicken spinach balti - madras strength and it was delicious. Well... More

I'm minded that reviewing a restaurant after one visit is not always a fair reflection of standard and quality. My first visit (May) with a friend was just before "kicking out" time. But I was sober as a judge(driving) and not really expecting much by way of good Indian fayre. How wrong could I be. The place was immaculate, service... More

Dropped in here for an early meal on a Sunday evening. We were the only customers in but the food was good and the service was just fine. Will certainly call again.

Simply the best Indian I've had in years. Waiter tweaked orders. Food delicious. Forget the 'fancy' overpriced restaurants ... This place rocks
