Best Indian restaurants in Bournemouth

1. Dilli Haat

Rating: 4.5/5

Brilliant, consistent quality

“Having a good local curry is challenging, mostly because of lack of consistency. Dilli Haat are award winning for a reason - it's just simply good, quality food, every time. Respectfully, it's very different to your usual "English-Indian" takeout - here, it's the real deal.

“It may not be the cheapest curry in Bournemouth, but you pay for what you get and Dilli Haat is worth it, trust me. The Saagwala meat is out of this world if you enjoy lamb!!”

2. Bournemouth Lahore
238 Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth BH1 1PE
Rating: 4.5/5
