Easily the worst Indian in Hamilton. Hamilton has loads if Indian restaurants and this is the worst by some distance. Been a while but I thought I would give them another chance. Service lousy and food barely better. Complaints met with disdain. Never be back

Love the table buffet. On arrival we had a plate of starters plenty to go round the staff asked if we wanted more. We then all picked mains It was very good value

Went to the restaurant with a Groupon voucher, 2 courses for 2 people. We both had pakora to start which was nice. We then had a chasni and a balti for main, delivered soon after ordering, warm fresh and very tasty (although curry portion was very small - not sure if that was because it was a voucher deal) overall...

I was dying of a hangover today and didn't fancy cooking. This menu looked like a good shout and I was right! The food was well-made and spicy with a lot of flavour, and it wasn't greasy at all. I really enjoyed my dinner, and I'll order from here again.

For 5.90 for 2 courses it's hard to go wrong. Pakora starters were excellent and cooked to perfection. Curry's were a bit watery for my liking and could have been thicker but maybe that's personal taste Service was quick and very helpful and pleasant Overall I would go back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend

My wife and I are quite regular visitors to the Pir Mahal so I don't give feedback on every visit. We have found it to be consistently satisfactory - a good middle range Indian restaurant with an adequate selection of dishes and good value for money. What more can one say?

We dine regularly from Pir Mahal and love the food. The starters are fresh and plentiful in particular pakoras. We have tried a wide selection of curries and would recommend the Tandoori Chicken Tikka on the bone. Our favourite is Tikka masaladar which is made to perfection. Rich and full of flavour. Highly recommend Pir Mahal for authentic cuisine.

Enjoyed our Indian meals, a wide selection,good portions and the right amount of spice. The nan bread was particularly good. The staff were also very friendly and service was quick. The downsides were the Chicken Maryland which was extremely dry and the stairs are not good for older folk. Giving 4 stars instead of 3 because you shouldn't order chicken... More

I have been going to the Pir Mahal since I was a wee girl (so 25+ years) and have yet to have a bad meal. The food is always delicious, freshly prepared and filling. Both the buffet and a la carte menu are great and the staff are always very welcoming. I now live in the US and a trip... More
