Indian Times is a family of four Indian restaurants but this one you’ll find in the centre of Ayr on Sandgate. It’s one of the most popular Indian restaurants in town and we can’t get enough of it because its menu consists of dishes from pretty much every part of India. You’ll find Indian Times signature dishes in the way of jaipuri, south Indian garlic chilli and a curious spinach dish called malaidar, made with fresh cream, spinach puree and lashings of fiery green chilli. It’s damn good. Of course, you’ll also find the curry house classics and an impressive vegetarian offering. Indian Times Sandgate is a little gem you really ought to be trying and, as it’s popular, be sure to reserve a table in advance.
Excellent food at great prices. Friendly service and BYOB with no corkage charge. Only thing is interior could do with a freshen up. But doesn't detract from the overall fantastic experience.
Very attentive staff...nothing a bother to them...prices and food excellent. Definitely worth a visit. No alcohol license as yet but you're welcome to bring your own.

The telephone number given on all websites does not work. We walked in and had to wait for a couple of minutes before we were greeted, when a staff member was stood a meter away, albeit he had his back to us. Despite this, he must have known someone had walked in the restaurant. Once seated we again waited a longer than I would expect for our drinks order to be taken. Poppadoms did turn up, with a lightly spiced chopped onion dip but no mango chutney, mint yoghurt or diced cucumber and onion. The menu was fairly limited to your traditional dishes, with one or two exceptions. Our staters were fine. A prawn poori and chicken tikka shashlik, which had more mushrooms than chicken. The main course consisted of a lamb rogan josh, lamb bhuna, a chicken jaipuri and a tandoori mixed platter. We also ordered a peshwari naan. This was the best part of the meal. Each dish had good flavour and the mixed platter in particular was very good. The staff member serving was polite and courteous - once we had been seated. The atmosphere was ok. It was a Wednesday evening, so not overly busy, with a few small groups in. The decor is quite ordinary, though the seating comfortable.
The food was delicious, served by friendly courteous staff. Love the bring your own bottle (BYOB) with the Co-op just across the road. I was impressed so much I’m going to book my birthday meal there.
The food was excellent and plentiful. The service could have been better, however they were busy. We loved that we could take our own wine. Would recommend highly.
Food is excellent, service first class , staff very friendly. Only thing missing is an alcohol license. We will definitely return as the menu is varied and interesting.
Food was excellent as always but service was slow for which the waiter was apologetic.Staff shortages are a problem when operating a very efficient kitchen.
