Phulkari Indian balgowlah has been one of my favorite places to eat for more years than I can remember! The food is always fresh and delicious. Whatever you choose to eat... always get the papeda chat as an entrée. I could never get tired of...that!!More

Bit off way more than they could chew in taking so many orders that they could not handle them but, worse still, just kept lying to customers. Ordered delivery, when 30 minutes late called them, and they said it was ready, but they didn't have...delivery drivers so could we pick it up. When we went to pick it up were told that it was not ready and would be 5 minutes. We were standing around outside in the rain with about 6 other people whilst the person serving was taking phone call after phone call of clearly people who were also waiting. Everyone with the same story, including a delivery driver who was waiting for longer than we were (so much for no drivers). In the meantime, they were taking more orders and telling more people that called the same lies. Struggled to know what orders were where, told someone their food was nearly ready and then they received a phone call to say that it had been delivered. They then had the nerve to get annoyed when I asked for my $5 delivery fee back. The food was good but not worth taking 2.5 hours from order to deliver. There are many other Indian restaurants in the area with the same or maybe even slightly better food so we will avoid this place in the future.More

I used to love this place and the girls and lovely Indian woman proprieter. SOMETHING BAD HAS HAPPENED with the cook or has it changed hands? The yellow dhal was grey bland slop anthe the chicken tikka was stringy mounds of bland chicken with tasteless...red stuff on it. You've changed and I am not coming back. Do you thing manly people accept any old expensive slop just because the competition is also slop and even more expensive? Pick up your actMore

I especially enjoyed the saag paneer but also enjoyed the other indian dishes that I received in my home delivery order.

Food was delivered more than 45 mins after quoted arrival time, which was unacceptably late. Prawn entree was chewy and lacking in taste. 2 main courses were OK but pricey for the quantity of food provided. Not often we have an Indian meal and feel...we needed another dish - probably because we had waited so long.More

a week ago My husband and I ordered takeaway and were pleasantly surprised how tasty all dishes were and going above our expectations. Butter chicken is absolutely delicious along with garlic naan and samosa. Highly recommend. 👍

Love our local Indian, the atmosphere is fun and vibrant and the food is delicious too. We usually take a game to play as we eat our way around India.
