Lawthorn Farm and indian Restaurant

The Singh family’s restaurant in Irvine has come to be one of the must visit Indian restaurants in Ayrshire.

Having taken on the rundown former Beefeater at Girdle Toll in 2007, the Singhs went to work converting the complex including the restaurant which is split over two levels.

The chefs serve up real home-style Indian cuisine.

There is the intense sizzling tandoori dishes or the mild, comforting kormas.

The mixed tikka is succulent and is served with a delicious sauce and cooling mint yoghurt.

Like the very successful Jewel in the Crown in Kilmarnock and the Jewel in Cumnock, quality is at the forefront of this Singh family enterprise.

Mac’s Spice Route

This Indian restaurant sits beside the A77 near Symington and demonstrates why this cuisine is made for sharing.

The charismatic Mac, or Mukesh Varma who manages the team, wants to offer a dining experience that is tasty and traditional, but also contemporary and healthy.

Everything from pakoras and tandoor, to Biryani and Bhatura is on the menu.

Try the Tawa, pan fried pieces of chicken or lamb with light herbs, spices cooked with sliced peppers and onion served with daal sauce.

Bhatura, a soft fried leavened bread made, served with garlic prawns or chicken is divine.

There are plenty of veggie and vegan options too, so it’s perfect for a group with varied dietary requirements.

There is plenty of parking available or place your order online for delivery.
