This seems to be the best rated place around Newtown so ordered by phone. The place was empty when I collected but the manger was friendly. Fish was nicely cooked but bland. Tandoori mixed grill had flavour but was dry. Chicken in the dhansak was tired and chewy as if it has been frozen for ages. Ordered a lot of... More

Called in on a Saturday night it was reasonably busy but service was quick and efficient. Staff very friendly and helpful. Quite a reasonable cost for two courses and a bottle of wine. Waiter was keen to help with menu choice which had some specialities of the chef rather than a standard Indian menu. It is on the first floor... More

We often stay at friends in Mid-Wales and we always try to find a new restaurant nearby to sample. Our friends recommended the Gulshan and we weren't disappointed. Very tasty Indian and Benghali food at honest prices. My son had the Tandoori chicken that was soft and delicately spiced. I enjoyed my Benghal Duck tremendously and my wife found the... More

A walk in visit early evening. Was empty at first but filled up as we were there . Mixed grill, chicken dupiaza with all the trimmings. Absolutely divine and a cut above the average curryhouse. Will definitely come back

Visited last night with a colleague and fellow Indian food lover, after a meeting in Newtown. A very warm welcome was given to us on our entrance. First impressions were very good in terms of the decor, layout and background music at a suitably low volume that didn't interfere with conversation. My colleague originally ordered the Mixed Starter and I... More

Visited Gulshan a couple of weeks ago at the last minute. Staff made room for us with no problem. Later the restaurant became very busy with diners. The meal was excellent as usual and the curry I choose is usually a medium strength but the chef made it mild for me. Nothing is too much trouble and it's great to... More

I think I had spiced tomato soup. I asked for Rogan Josh. Think this was the worst restaurant meal I have ever had. I will not go back - ever.

Visiting Newtown for the first time in a few years and the Gulshan was recommended and we were so glad we tried it. If you didn't know you would be hard placed to find the restaurant as its hidden on top of the local Spar in the centre of the town. Lovely warm welcome from the manager and staff and... More

I recently came to stay with friends and we decided after meeting up and having a few drinks to go to Indian, my friend said to come to this one, we had a very warm welcome however there were not many in eating and also it was a little cold. I had a chicken tikka patia and even though it... More
