Stopped off for a bite, ended up having a lovely full meal. Nice, albeit a bit obscure, starters (we had never seen anything like it in other Indian restaurants, but they were nice). Lovely mains, too. Nice service, quick and precise. Overall good experience!

Visited Chandpur on many occasions and again, this visit did not disappoint. The food was delicious with generous portions, service excellent and the atmosphere warm and relaxed. Really enjoyed the evening and catching up with friends. I'd highly recommend Chandpur when visiting Donegal Town. Looking forward to my next visit.

Conveniently located across the street from a car park, Chandpur is an unexpectedly lavish walkup from the street. The early bird menu struck my companion's fancy while I went straight for the vindaloo. Great flavors all around, albeit slightly sweeter than anticipated, particularly the garlic naan. Fantastic service and I don't think this was the result of it being off-season: there really is a passion for authentic indian food here. If you're in the area for any appreciable time, Chandpur is worth a visit.

We had picked out this restaurant from Tripadvisor for a recent visit to Donegal as we are both fans of Indian food. We got there at 6 pm on a dreary Monday evening and were not the first to arrive. Indeed the restaurant seemed to be doing a good trade for a Monday, so business must be OK. The decor of the restaurant is very pleasant and the bathrooms were clean and modern. We decided to eat a la carte although they had a reasonably-priced early bird. I ordered the chicken tikka chat to start and my partner ordered the prawn puri. My starter came with plain chicken rather than the ordered chicken tikka and was OK but rather bland. The "light pancake bread" which accompanied my dish was a little oily and I did not finish it. This bread appeared identical to the "lightly puffed bread" that accompanied my partner's starter which I suppose was meant to be the "puri" part of Prawn Puri. Again, the prawn dish was OK but had little in the way of distinctive flavouring. For our mains we had a chicken madras and a Railway (lamb) curry with pilau rice. Here we had more success. My chicken curry was tender well flavoured and quite hot (as a Madras should be). The lamb in my partner's curry was tender and lean and the flavour of the curry was good. Unfortunately she felt it was too hot. When ordering she had asked if the Railway curry would be hot and the waitress had told her that it did not even warrant a one-chilli rating on the menu. I tasted her railway curry before I tasted my Madras and can confirm that, in my opinion, it would have warranted at least a one-chilli rating on most Indian restaurants in terms of its capsaicin content. This was not a bad meal, it just was not a great meal, let down by so-so starters and a mis-rated (or mis-prepared?) railway curry that was too hot. The flavouring of both curries shows that Chandpur can prepare good tasty food.

Lovely little Indian in Donegal town, went for he early bird menu, small but good choices. Large main menu, all the food was very tasty, and served within good time. I have also bought one or two takeaways from here, but I find the takeaway menu far too expensive, epecially when rice is not included.
Dear Reviewer, I would like to thank Newbie for taking the time to post a review on Menu Pages, however I was saddened to read that he thought our takeaway menu was expensive. We do however give a complimentary plain rice or plain nan bread to the value of €1.50 with every main course ordered, so he was incorrect in his comment. We clearly state this on the menu, however if you order a special rice or a flavour nan we charge the difference, so this is maybe where our customer was slightly confused. We do also give complimentary poppadoms and dips with every order to the value of €1.50, so this again we feel this is good value. We are also well known for our generous portion sizes and do hope that our customer newbie will appreciate our reply. Kind Regards Chandpur Indian Restaurant

This restaurant has a fantastic menu with food which is absolutely brilliant. I have eaten in many Indian restaurants and there are none can measure up to Chandpur. The 'Railway Curry' is mouthwatering as is the Lamb Sag and the starters are delicious especially the 'selection' which gave us the chance to try a few different dishes. Very efficient staff and wonderful relaxing ambience. This has to be the best Indian restaurant in Ireland, can't wait to return for more sumptious delights.
