The food was awful luke warm and bland, it's definetly not authentic food, I think it's food for those that are not food savvy and don't mind eating crap. I would never go there again and I would advise people not to go there. Extortion at its finest.

I have dined here many times over the last 25 years. There are better Indian options along the same stree, but this place opens late and the food is good.

The restaurant décor is outdated and most of the tables are separated into booths by ornate glass panels. This wasn't an issue for me though as I'm getting tired of the big open plan restaurants in the centre of Cardiff with too many tables crammed in. I also thought the service was fine; each of the waiters who dealt with... More

I've enjoyed a few nice meals at this long-standing curry house, but I wouldn't dine here again unless they improved their Food Hygiene Rating. It is currently at a worrying 0 out of 5 and can be checked on the Food Standards Agency website/FSA app etc. Obviously, scores can improve with time and I hope this restaurant gets back on... More

We have been using this curry house for our regular weekly take away for almost 2 years now. The food is always fantastic, hot and of restaurant standard, they are 100% consistent and we have not had a bad dish in all that time. They are friendly when you order and also when they deliver. Wouldn't dream of going anywhere... More

We always go here if we need/want to eat after the pubs close, the last time this happened was Sunday night. Unlike anywhere else they are open until twelve on a Sunday and I have been there even later on a Friday and Saturday. Over the years the curries have been up and down and on this occasion they were... More

I was fortunate enough to live in Canton many moons ago so was in the Indo Cymru all the time. I still try to make it back as often as I can because the food hasn't changed. Its still very good. The dhansak for me is the best around. I'd also recommended the Naan. The interior of the Indo Cymru... More

Waiter was slow, uninterested and bordering on rude, food took nearly an hour to arrive and was average at best. Had they been busy I could have understood however there were about 7 tables occupied in the whole place, one of which got their main courses well before us despite arriving after we did.

Friendly staff which I couldn't fault for attentive service and friendliness but the food was average at best. Reminded me more of a chicken stew.
