The Helal Tandoori (to give its full title) is very much the "old lady" of Indian dining in Louth, established since the mid-80s and is currently better than the other three more recent additions. The restaurant is a little cramped, but the history of the building makes it worthwhile and it does make for... More

We decided to visit Helal as we wanted to try another Indian restaurant in Louth. Whilst the service and setting were good unfortunately the food did not meet our expectations. The two main dishes we ordered were cauliflower bhaji and the chef's special Bhuna dish which tasted as if they were cooked in the same sauce. In a nutshell, stock... More

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!
