Lovely family meal, very accommodating staff if a little understaffed. Would recommend

This is not a bad place to go for an Indian. The food is quite good but perhaps not stellar. It is quite plain and cramped inside but the service is usually good. I find Indians in general quite expensive for what they are so no different here. Not a magical dining experience but always dependable.

I read revue of this restaurant on trip adviser and can't understand how any body would give this a good rating apart from being clean the food was bland the service was depressing and very aragunt I'm a indian food lover and I eat it at least once a week, but this place is expensive and I don't mind paying for nice food but by far this is not a nice indian restaurant .

Vegetable dishes are ok, although serving spinach and cottage cheese as saag paneer is a joke. Meat dishes are best avoided completely, unless you like low quality over cooked meat with the texture of meat that has been cooked, frozen and then overcooked. A naan stuffed with lamb was actually a naan sprinkled with some dry old mince tasting like dog biscuits. A tandoori special is the least special tandoori imaginable and at around 15 euro is very overpriced. Crab claws which taste and have the texture of saw dust, a lamb kebab which tastes like a pouch of cat food and prawns cooked until they're bouncy. This is not Indian food, it is a foul imposter. Indian food is fresh and delicious, the only fresh thing here are the raw onions.

Oh my goodness, you have to eat here. I have gotten takeaway from here a number of times and the food is always very good. My husband and I decided to eat in the restaurant for a change and all I can say is WOW. The food, the same food that we usually order, was spectacular when eaten fresh from the kitchen. The naan bread was so fresh, I could sit there eating bread and sauce all night! The staff are very friendly, the food is high quality and pretty good value, the decor is quite dark and the restaurant is kept dim and has quite a few tables in it and is a bit small, with the takeout counter located in the restaurant and all foot traffic for that is passing tables. So if you go in, I recommend sitting as far from the "path" as possible. This is my only issue with an otherwise excellent dining experience.

Santoor is quite simply the best Indian restaurant in the west of Ireland. I am a big fan of Indian food and have eaten in every Indian restaurant Galway has to offer. Most of the others are reasonably good. Santoor however is great. But why do I think it is great? The food is always highly consistent. If you ask for Sag Paneer this time it will be just as tasty as the last time - obviously the same for all other dishes. Also if you want something that is not on the menu it is never a problem. Along with the high taste high consistency food is the friendly staff. The guys in Santoor cannot do enough to please. Any resonable request is taken care of and always with a smile. The only downside as mentioned by other reviewers is the space. Although on my last visit the tables were rearranged a little better.

Typical Indian that you would find in any part of Ireland. Tables, Chairs & décor all very predictable and it is small so tight. Not necessarily that special place to bring someone for a quite chat. Food is of a decent quality but slightly expensive as you have to pay extra for Rice. Service is nice and friendly. Does what it says on the tin.

Are here on a number of occasions. Food is consistently good. Tables are positioned a little close together for my liking - some are so close you almost have to ask the person sitting behind you to move in order to get out! (docked a point from atmosphere) Mostly have had a very good experience with service - just one poor experience where the waiter seemed to be having a bad day! (docked a point from service).

We were staying in Oranmore and decided to try Santoor. Not being very hungry we skipped starters and had a tandori mix grill and a lamb tikka masala. The portions were generous and were very tasty. We enjoyed the meal, the surroundigs and found the staff attentive. The meal including a bottle of wine cost about €62.00. We would return and try it again!

A really great Indian restaurant, we've eaten in so many and this is definately one of the best in the west. The food is really excellent as is the service. Attentive yet not overbearing. Highly recomment the Santoor Special Chicken Curry. It's really gorgeous. The Naan breads are really wonderful too. I like the fact that medium spicy will actually be medium spicy. All too often Irish Indian restaurants can be too afraid of offending customers with good spice! Prawn Puri is a lovely starter dish also! Nice atmosphere as the restaurant was busy, we're clearly not the only ones who recognise the greatness!

On a weekend trip to Galway, Myself and Husband stumbled across Santoor Restaurant on a drive through Oranmore, after having a look at the menu outside we decided to go back that evening when it was open for a meal. On arriving into the Restaurant that night there were about 2 other tables occupied with diners, we decided for a table for 2 at the window, on sitting down at our table I noticed the table cloth had the remains of food from the people before us, also the heater dish they leave on the table was also stained with the food from the people before us! I asked the waiter to change it,and was shocked at how rude the waiter was, no apology no nothing just stone-faced silence like I just gave him more work to do, unbelievable! we were given a sauce and some Poppadoms which were bordering on being stale,we then ordered 2 Tikka Masala dishes, one Chicken Breast Tikka Masala & the other Tandoori Tikka Masala , chips, Naan Bread & Pilau rice, the only thing that tasted OK was the rice and the Chicken breast Tikka which I left half of, also the Tandoori Tikka Masala must of having so much food colouring it was a unnatural shade of bright Orange and the Chicken was as tough as old boots! Myself f& my husband were also surprised to see how many takeaways were given out on that night, the only reason I know this is because people picking up their Take-aways had to walk through the whole Restaurant to pick it up! which I found very unprofessional. Either way Restaurant was busy that night all the same, and being a lover of Indian food I would rather pass on this Restaurant as food was terrible, place was dirty and staff were unpleasant and rude!
