We had a lovely family meal, loved all the different dishes ordered, they were all uniquely flavoured, plus the rotis were fresh and crisp just like the dhabas back home 👍

A tourist in need of a great curry should try here. My wife and I agreed it was the best we have had for many years.

A little bit disappointed. The Tandoori chicken starters and both main dishes were over salted which spoilt the flavour. The staff were friendly and helpful. Maybe we were just unlucky on the night.

Had a lovely meal here, the food was lovely. The marking was purely the experience. We ate as a couple and at time of arrival only one table for 2 was available squeezed in between a table of 4 and a wall. This made things...very crampedMore

Visitors to Barrow in Furness, spotted this restaurant whilst we sat across the road in the local wetherspoons- it was pelting with rain - so seemed a great option not to walk too far. Had chicken madras, a vegetarian curry rice and naan, with a...bottle of wine - all good and no issues. Didn't enjoy the hike up and down the stairs. Would return and would recommend.More

I order from here on average 1.5 with a order around £30 each time I order. Normally in the past I've got lovely food, steaming hot and friendly service. I understand sometimes it's busy I'm not exactly a Karen. Recently I've had nothing but bad...service and water filled boxes for food. Waited around 3 HOURS on delivery, opened the food to see water floating on the side of a curry. This isn't a one off complaint, I've sent a polite notice saying the food wasn't as good in the past. I don't know if the manager or boss goes home the standards drop but whatever you're doing you've lost a regular customer.More

Possibly the best Indian meal we’ve ever had. Funnily enough the couple on the table behind us said the same thing as they were leaving. Most of the diners were local and obviously regular customers. Will definitely be returning next time we are in the...area.More

Our meal was decent but the small portions all round has put us off from returning. We will give Ulverston Indian a try next time.

Good restaurant serving good food, possibly best sums Dhaba up. Negatives Menus, I despise dog eared menus, that’s a signal it’s time to change them. Decor was stuck in the 70s, only thing missing was waiting staff not wearing brown velvet suits & flares. Positives...- Excellent service, not overbearing at all, felt totally comfortable dining myself, food was sublime served at a good pace. £23 for a 2 course meal with a beer, whilst not as cheap as their repugnant neighbours (Spoons) food was far better. Sort out the menus and a visit from the Dulux dog and you’ve got a winner.More

Hardly inclusive. 22 steep steps to the bathroom. Asked to leave as it might upset the other customers (of which there were 2) as they were getting busy and someone using an oxygen tank could be off putting. Disgraceful.

Visited this restaurant again, 2 years ago we loved this place so decided since we were in the area we would eat here again. Excellent food, great service, a happy cheerful atmosphere. Would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Indian fusion food. Cobra beer...on pump, cold and drinkable.More

We visited Barrow in Furness and decided to have a relaxing dinner at Dhaba restaurant. So called ahead and made a booking for a family of 4. When we arrived we were seated on an uncomfortable table between two extremely loud groups of people. Next...ordered the food. Three starters with meagre portion arrived and Chicken tikka biryani had literally 4 spoonfuls of rice and worst ever we had tasted. Next order of 2 naan( A decent eater would need at least 4 of these tiny naans) and two curries arrived. On seeing the small naans, we immediately ordered two more We were told that it would be 10 minutes for extra naans to arrive. The waiting game began and finally after losing patience 30 minutes later , we asked politely for the naans and were told coolly that they had forgotten to place our order. Another 15 minutes our long awaited naans arrived. The meal finished, we asked for the bill. Another episode from the restaurant as they had billed us nearly £25 extra. Finally paid the right amount and left the restaurant only to find ourselves in an unsafe environment just outside the restaurant. Somehow made it safely to our hotel. Conclusion: Mediocre food, avoid unless you're desperate.More

Bored with the hotel menu (I'm currently working away from home) I decided to try Dhaba on the recommendation of a colleague. I'm very glad I did as the meal I had was excellent. It's a small restaurant with friendly staff, the menu isn't huge...but I always think that's a good thing it means the chefs are focussing on a few good dishes rather than over extending. I started with the bhaji and the were just right crisp on the outside and soft inside for mai I had the special mixed balta with a man and couldn't fault it, the spices were just right in that I could taste all the individuals ingredients and it wasn't overwhelmed by the heat. I'd very much recommend Dhaba.More
