Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For a community the size of Donegal this restaurant produces Indian food of extremely high quality. We started with the Sheek kebab appetizer which was moist and obviously freshly made. We then had butter chicken and lamb biryani. The meat in both dishes was soft...and, I assume, made from fresh meat rather than pre-cooked. Both dishes were very flavourful. It was a great experience.More

On our holidays in beautiful Donegal we came across the Indian restaurant Chandur. Rarely have we eaten better Indian food and experienced a more welcoming service. Among others, we tried the delicious Chicken Makhani and tasteful Vegetarian Biryani. The music, the decoration - all was...very authentic. Rightly have they already won several awards. Well done and keep up the great work!More

Starting off with they couldn’t find our reservation, the host was very reluctant to sit us even though there were only 2 tables occupied. Getting a menu, ordering wine and food and getting those served seemed to be a struggle. The 1/2 bottle of white...was excellent as was the food, playing was very well done as well. Sauces for our papadams were delicious. I would go again for take away, but would eat in at another restaurant.More

Great place to eat out. It's all been said before, great Indian. Very relaxing atmosphere. Great service. We had such a lovely evening here. Only little niggles were poppadoms and dips, I think this has been highlighted before. Probably not the best I've had, somewhat...scant. I don't really understand this given the mains are so good etc. Such a simple, and cost effective thing to remedy?! Overall, a good experience. But, like anything, room for improvement.More

First timers here and holiday makers. Read a recent article on this award winning restaurant so had to check it out. We arrived at 4pm. No early bird menu was offered although a children's menu was available with the a la carte. Throughout the meal,...all the staff were excellent with our two children aged 5 and under and had a really lovely manner with them. The only thing to better this child/family experience is to offer a picture to colour with colours to help occupy them during a relaxed service. To commence, we ordered a tandoori mixed starter to share at €8.50 & for mains: butter chicken with plain rice and we asked for a recommendation for a medium curry for our 2nd dish: we were recommended either the Indian Railway curry or garlic chicken tikka chilli bhuna so opted for the latter with plain rice (both mains were €18.95 incl. plain rice or plain naan). We also ordered an extra garlic naan to share at €3.95.We declined the offered poppadoms as we thought we had ordered plenty between us so were surprised when they landed at our table but we were assured that they were complimentary. The mixed starter was very tasty. The butter chicken was quite sweet and mild tasting but enjoyable especially for the children. The garlic chilli chicken made my tongue tingle and I am used to curries. For drinks, we ordered a jug of Miwadi for the table and 2 glasses of red wine for the non-driver at €8.45 each which arrived in a quarter bottle. Although on closer inspection of the menu it was €6.45 each. Overall, very tasty Indian cuisine deserving of the accolades. My husband paid the bill. When we were home, I was annoyed to find that we had indeed been charged for the complimentary 4 poppadoms and chutney (at €5). Up until this point, I was giving an excellent rating for this restaurant: both food and service but hence reduced the rating to reflect these sneaky overcharges of the unordered poppadoms and wine.More

The entire experience here was amazing! We randomly asked someone sitting next to us at a table in a pub for a restaurant recommendation. He said Chandpur and when a lady joined him at his table, he introduced her as an owner. She immediately called...to make sure there was a table and when we arrived they were ready for us. The decor was lovely and the service was outstanding. All three dishes we ordered were tasty with lovely levels of spice. The naan was a unique texture that was really enjoyable. We eat Indian frequently and this is one of the best experiences we’ve had in an Indian restaurant. The restaurant and toilets were clean and ambiance was welcoming.More

The waiting staff were more than helpful, always making sure everything was okay and were very friendly. When we had began to eat our starter, we could overhear the woman who I believe to be the manager cursing behind the bar. This was quite off...putting as the restaurant was quiet at the time of our dining. When we went to pay, she barely acknowledged us or the tip we left. I just feel there is a bit of a lack of customer service there and could be improved. As for the rest of the waiting staff, they are a credit to the restaurant. The food was amazing and we will definitely be returning because of these reasons.More
