Excellent food, very reasonable prices, and don't forget to bring your own wine, as it isn't licensed!

We were pleasantly surprised as we did not know what to expect. The food was interesting, delicately spiced, and freshly cooked. The naan says a lot!As well as the standard "Indian" restaurant menu, there are other different dishes that were really good. It is not licensed at present, but we certainly did not mind that, as there was a convenience... More

My husband and I visited the Gulshan on a Saturday evening when visiting for the local park motorcycle races. It was around 9pm and the restaurant was reasonably busy. We were quickly seated and our orders taken. We opted for for poppadoms and pickle tray and main courses only due to the time of night. We'd just finished our poppadoms... More

From the outside, the restaurant doesn't look to appealing! But don't let this put you off! The food is of top quality, and the only indian in aberdare that you can actually sit in a restaurant and eat an indian. Never seen the restaurant full in the evening, so no need to book ahead.Can highly recommend the chicken vindaloo. The... More

This restaurant has been around for 30 Years and has always been consistent in food and service. Sadly it's standards had declined due to competition elsewhere and the decor and cleanliness has fallen short also. The food was okay but a little over priced for what you get. There are better curry houses in Aberdare. Shame to see an iconic... More

This is a well established Indian restaurant in the heart of Aberdare. The first thing you notice when you walk in is that the place smells fresh and clean. Spotless! It's not something you ought to have to mention, it should be like this everywhere, but it often isn't! The service was prompt and attentive, without being stuffy at all.... More

Iv got to be honest,I have been going here since I was 18yrs old (20 years ago) I'm sure it's been under different management many times but staff always are polite friendly and helpful. The food is normally served quickly and correctly.. but I'm not 100% sure, as normally I visit this place at 12.30am after a big night out,... More
