I have went to this Indian for a long time. The menu offers a wide range of Indian dishes. I always get the chicken korma and it is always delicious. Definitely recommend.

After a 2 year absence, we decided to give the Khayber in Galgorm another go for lunch as we were in the area. Previous visits had been a disappointment as the food never lived up to the Glengormley restaurant. I don't know why, but having tried 4 or 5 different dishes at the Galgorm site over the past 5 years... More

Only another couple in this beautiful restaurant. WHY.?. Ordered drinks, waiter unfriendly and not very pleasant. Starters arrived , plates covered in iceberg lettuce and very little else. I had 2 small pieces of chicken tikka, which had been reheated and were hard. 2 small dips came between 4. Chilli one was mad hot and burnt all of us. Mains... More

We have had many good nights here. The food is excellent and authentic. The tandoori is especially good. Service is quick and friendly. The atmosphere can be quite quiet but it depends on what time you choose. The food is always fresh and there's also a take away o p tion for the whole menu. If you like Indian food... More

We have been on a several month journey across Europe, and frankly we did not expect to find the best Indian Food of the trip anywhere in Ireland, let alone in Ballymena. We ate here several times and the value, atmosphere, and service was excellent. We enjoyed our first dinner here so much we came back three days in a... More

Speed of service is remarkable, especially as it is delivered in a considered, unhurried and unobtrusive way. Surprisingly diverse menu, and expert guidance from the senior waiter enabled us to select an exotic combination . . . tasty and attractively presented.

Thank borrum
