Having tried most Indian restaurants in the area The Himachol was one Indian restaurant that we have never been to. I understand that restaurant has been there for a good many years, so we all thought why not give it a try, have to say all four of us were not disappointed, we were made very welcome as soon as...

If you are an actual Indian foodie you will hate this place! Do not consider the reviews on here if you know your Indian food ! We have eaten Indian food weekly for the 25 years- and having moved here recently, we are in search of a fresh, flavoursome, authentic curry in Poole and are yet to find one! Please... More

Always had a Takeaway here, but decided to get together for a sit down meal. Have to say we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Always allow a few hours to ensure you can take your time to explore the menu. Always very busy,if not booked up, at weekends. Would recommend going durring the week if you like things a bit quieter and at a slower pace. What ever you choose you will not be disappointed with this family owned restaurant.

Have had three take aways from this restaurant over the last month. And have to admit this is one of the best currys i have had. Chicken Naga is not everyones favourite dish. But to be honest you need to taste it to appreciate it. And the staff are very helpful to tell you what your dish consist of. But... More

Went there last night and had a very nice meal. The staff greet you when you enter the restaurant and are attentive throughout. I had a vindaloo which was very hot and spicy. This is not always the case, I'm sure a lot of restaurants tone the heat down but not this place. Overall this is a very good restaurant... More

Himachol is at the far end of Ashley Road in Poole, a street with at least a dozen Asian restaurants or takeways, in a slightly gritty part of town. Competition is fierce, and I am sure that it helps keep Himachol on its toes. Although it's unprepossessing from the outside, inside it's quite bright with eclectic wall decorations, including traditional... More
