“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Tiny seaside town. Tiny unassuming restaurant opposite the train station. Great indian food. Really great. The staff are equally unassuming but pleasant. Standard fare so don't expect revolution on the menu. Inexpensive. I loved this place

“Best food in Helensburgh”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Very high quality food, lovely staff, perfect place to spend an evening enjoying the best curries or get a takeaway for a great meal at home. Lots of vegetarian choices too. Helensburgh is worth the visit just for the food here!

“New Owners Better Standard”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We have eaten here before and quite frankly it was poor. We heard that it had been taken over by new owners so we would give it another try. So happy we did. The best curry house in Helensburgh by far for us.

The new owner, Sammi, is pleasant to deal with. Efficiently attentive. The layout of the restaurant is good, it certainly does not have the canteen feel other Indians in Helensburgh have.

The food has vastly improved to the point that if we cannot eat out, No28 is our takeaway of choice. The dishes are also varied and not the run of the mill, however the more familiar dishes can be had too. Particularly like the poppadoms as they are not the usual.

We do eat out here during the week when it is quite, so cannot comment on the busy days.

Well done No28 the standard has been raised.

“Delicious Food!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

I have visited here many years ago and it was good then, haven't been back until this week, thoroughly enjoyed a meal here on Wednesday with the hubbyman, sister and brother in law. Not very often I am unable to complete a meal, the portions were very generous, the meal itself was delicious and the service excellent. Very reasonably priced for what we had including drinks. We will be back! :)
