Family meal out, fantastic service, lovely Indian food, great quality. Take-away option but nice to have it separate from the main restaurant.

Being a huge fan of Indian food, I frequent this establishment. Never before have I felt so welcome in a restaurant. I enjoy a chat and a laugh with the staff and they're always happy to help. The food is a highlight, being by far the best Indian food in the county. There's barely room on the tables for the... More

Popped in for tea one evening- was ok- but Have had much better- tasteless in parts and very dimly lit- difficult with a high chair due to tight space- wont be back in a hurry although the staff are wonderful and very accomodating- just not our cup of tea

Visited several times and had few take aways. Always consistent with food that comes out. Decent value. I normally have the chicken shai chilli curry i think its called. Lots of flavour and spices.

Good atmosphere and pleasant staff, very keen to please. Good sized portions and nice fresh poppadums. Chicken was nicely cooked with tasty charred edges! Would visit again. Definitely a good quality place!

Having spent some time eating my way through the Curry Mile in Manchester, I can safely say that the Helal in Louth still beats them all. The building is from the 16th Century giving bags of character. Individual booths and low light levels give a warm and private feel to your dining. Large choice of usual favourite currys and specials.... More

This has got to be the best Indian I have ever been too. The food is always excellent, the staff are always great and happy to have a laugh and a bit of banter. Everytime the bill comes out we always think it is reasonable and never had an expensive bill yet...

Party of 14 of us came in Saturday night, a warm welcome as always. Piping hot food, hot plates and cold beer. What more could we ask for? Staff attentive as usual and always up for a laugh and a joke. Looking forward to our next visit... Not long until my birthday now!

Booked in advance and still very slow service. Popadoms fresh but the relishes were very salty and sour, so in my opinion inedible. We ordered a mixed starter for 2, when it arrived it was barely enough for 1, this was mentioned but ignored. The side plates provided were very hot, which is alway a nice touch and the tikka...
