Having had several oily, nondescript takeaways from the Helal over the years, my wife and I took a chance to eat in their restaurant, first time for around 10 years. Just so much better than the takeaways! Plentiful, tasty portions served by friendly staff and a reasonable price. I had the traditional onion bhaji starter, followed by veg madras, wife... More

...though sometimes I wish someone would. 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
