The food is good, both of us enjoyed the starters and main course. 4 persons attending tables which one would think would be enough.

All joking apart - Maniq cooked a cracking jalfrezi tonight and the lamb sag, madras hot was a winner. The wedges of lemon and loads of coriander made it perfect. With the dream team of J and T in charge of front of house, nothing was too much trouble. Top food and top banter! Thanks.

The food is plentiful and tasty. I often stick to the same few dishes, as I don't enjoy dishes that are too spicy... More

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
