More about Castle View Indian Cuisine, Lincoln

Lincoln is a very historic town which means there’s plenty to do. There’s also plenty to eat, and if Indian is on your mind in that regard then Castle View Indian Cuisine should be at the very top of your list of restaurants to try. Once you’ve made your way to Union Road, there’s much to choose from in the way of tandoori specials, biryani, the traditional classics, impressive vegetarian options and, unusually for Indian restaurants in Lincoln, plenty of fresh seafood. The salmon mujadara is a particular favourite of ours, consisting of Bengali-style marinated salmon fillets, capsicum and green chilli.

After all of that, you’ve then got a selection of chef’s specials that are somewhat famous in central Lincoln. Try the duck curry cooked with coconut milk, the chicken or lamb achari (if you’re brave enough to take the heat), or the Gandhi special that’s packed with minced lamb, garlic and some fiery ginger. As you can see, Castle View Indian Cuisine offers a vast amount of choice and much, if not all of the menu can be adapted to whatever your dietary requirements might require. As we said, for the best Indian meal out in central Lincoln, there really is no need to look further than Castle View Indian Cuisine.

Rare to find an Indian restaurant with so much charm. Situated under the walls of Lincoln castle and across the road from the Lawns, this restaurant is run by the happiest and friendly people you could possibly meet. From the cheerful welcome to the laugh filled goodbye, the Castle view makes you feel special. The Food! You could eat a different dish every day for a month and never be disappointed. Well spiced and piping hot. I suppose the test of quality is that it is packed full of customers at 7pm. The only negative is that the restaurant is on the first floor and makes it impossible for many disabled people.

A brilliant experience. Really tasty food with excellent depth of flavour, not just heat and colour. Superb ambiance, great building/location and pleasantly warm on a cold evening; too many restaurants skimp on heating. Wonderful, genuine people, who have time for folk and care about what they do. To be fair to Castle View I can only suggest give it a try, but in the back of my mind I really want to keep it one of those great little gems that not too many folk know about. Steve

Overall, a great meal at this restaurant. The table was a bit crammed in and that stopped me giving full marks. However, the food was excellent (had the Chicken Tikka garlic chilli) and the service was fantastic. First time I have been asked if I was enjoying the main, and that they would swap it if I wanted! Asked for bill and was offered complimentary shots which was a nice touch. Would certainly come back to this lovely Indian restaurant.

Fantastic food. Good 'old school' Indian menu. Excellent service, with friendly, helpful staff. Can get busy, but easy to book online to make sure you get a table. All good and I can honestly say that there wasn't a single thing to find fault with. I will definitely be returning, next time I am in Lincoln.

As always, excellent cuisine - really delicious and generous portions. (Took leftovers home!) Staff friendly and very welcoming. Did have a chipped plate which waiter changed for me and also initially found the restaurant a bit chilly (perhaps where I was sitting at the top of the stairs) but nothing will deter us from coming back again!! Will also recommend it to our friends.
