My favourite Indian restaurant in Buckingham. I try others but always go back to the Dipalee. Food and service is always good. We took my mother on her birthday as she loves a curry. We only had mains with side dishes but that was more than enough for us. Food was hot and delicious and we all had a really... More

I admit to not knowing much about Indian food as I don't like spicy food generally, lucky they had a Mango Chicken dish which was sweet and nice enough for me. I think people who love Indian food will like this place, very friendly staff, an old-style kind of restaurant with very nice food, just a good place to go... More

Hadn't been here for a few years but just thought we would go out for an Indian meal for a change. The food was beautifully cooked, all served hot to 6 of us at the same time. The staff couldn't do enough for us either. Can't wait to return!

I have visited this lovely place, many times in the past 25 years and it never disapoints. We had a group of over 12 people and the staff made us feel very welcome, and provided a very tasty meal. The staff explain the menu with patiance to those in the party who do not or have not eaten Indian food... More

This Indian restaurant has now become our firm family favourite and I can't praise it highly enough. All the staff are very friendly, exceptionally attentive and polite and the food is always excellent regardless of how busy it is. We've never had anything from the extensive menu that is over-seasoned or too hot, just consistently wonderful food with fragrant spices.... More

Great friendly staff. The meal was so tasty, I had a king Prawn dhansak. The prawns were tender and delicious. Saag aloo was great. The only little complaint was a lack of meat in the keema naan, but it was still nice. Free drink at the end was a treat.

Good food helpful staff but getting a bit pricey! Drinks really step up the bill which is probably why they are always keen to top you up!

Never been let down by the Dipalee, always a friendly welcome and great food. Tried the others, this is the best Indian restaurant in town, no question.

I just made last orders, and I was so glad I did, had not eaten at Dipalee for many years but was glad to see it had not changed at all.
