Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Me and my family had visited The Dinning resturant over the September weekend.when we first arrived we recieved a warm welcome from owner which was really nice and staff member had given us a friendly smile. I also like that he had given us the...option of where we would like to be seated. Food was great couldn't fault it on anything as all so delicious and like that it was cooked pretty much infront of us so couldn't get any fresher, in fact my partner said it was probably one of the best Indian restaurants he has been too! Price of the food was also reasonable for the amount that we had been given as well as my little boy saying he would of liked to have tried a few more things if he wasn't so full to which then at the end of our meal the owner had given him some samples away with him which was very kind of the man as he had gone out his way to do this for him. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone and would far as say would travel the 30/40 mins just to dine in the restaurant again. We will definitely be returning soon :0)More

Not my first time and won’t be my last time visiting, food is always amazing and they are very welcoming! I love that you can sit and enjoy your meal and you are not rushed out the door and can take your time. It’s a...family favourite and best Indian in the area, thank you!More

Visited with 5 adults, everyone thought their curry was absolutely delicious. The dishes were packed with flavour and carefully spiced. Great little place and very friendly owner. It would be my local curry restaurant if I lived closer! Would thoroughly recommend.

We booked this restaurant from reviews on Tripadvisor, it did not disappoint. Excellent service, great food and very good value. We were on holiday and would highly recommend The Dining Room. We will be back.

We found this restaurant searching through through Trip Advisor after many places were booked out due to the Eat out to Help out scheme and I am so glad we did. The restaurant is small and in a row of empty looking shops and, to...be honest, we did question it but please don’t let that stop you. The food at The Dining Room is amazing. We are holidaying here from London and this restaurant was on par with Benares, a 5 star restaurant. From the in-house made pickle with the popadoms to the in-house made paneer, the quality was exceptional. Please do try The Dining Room if you possibly can. We are gutted it’s not closer to homeMore

Simple to review No 10. Great food. Really fresh and with a reduced Gee content we enjoyed the best Indian food we could remember. Amar cares about his work and the food that is served up. We were travelling up to the Highlands and this...meal has put Dumbarton on our culinary map. We wish him and his family all the best for the future. We will be back . Vince & JuliaMore

Fantastic food. Authentic Punjabi cuisine. Outstanding service. Not licensed but BYOB with no corkage and they chill and serve your wine. Can't praise this place highly enough. Well done, Amar.

Stopped in for an impromptu dinner as we were shopping in the area and had a long drive home. Hosts couldn’t do more to accommodate us. We didn’t realise it was BYOB and they offered to go to the shops to get us a few...beers! We didn’t take them up as thought it would’ve been a little cheeky. Still the offer was nice. We had Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Achari. Clean plates; yum yum. Will be back next time we’re in Dumbarton shopping. Couldn’t recommend this place any more. You will not be disappointed.More

We are from Japan and the USA. We visit Dumbarton every year or every other year. Always, we it here. Dumbarton is fortunate to have a quality restaurant like this. Actually, any place would be lucky. This is some of the finest food you can...find. Top notch ingredients and always great service. They deserve Trip Advisor Award every year!More

It’s quite a small restaurant, however the staff are very accommodating and I’m sure would assist with mobility.
