5 Indian Restaurants in Oldham you need to try!

For over 200 years now (yes, it’s been that long!) Brits have been enjoying the thousands of different variations of cuisine that came from the land of India!

In recent decades, with countless new Indian restaurants an takeaways popping up all over the country, it’s hard to argue that the hugely popular spice-based food hasn’t taken the UK by storm.

In fact, as study in 2016 showed that some Brits will even spend up to £30,000 on Indian food in their lifetime. Given these numbers, it’s safe to say Indian food is less of a treat and more of a national obsession.

But what about round these parts? Indian restaurants in Oldham can be found in various locations across the town and region as a whole.

So if you’re on the hunt for Indian restaurants in Oldham, have no fear – here are just a few suggestions to get you started!


You’ll find the cleverly-titled ‘Indish’ on Jardine Way in Chadderton, just across from McDonalds. But after your first visit, you won’t have a problem finding it in the future.

Now entering its tenth year operating, the classy interior design of the building stands out straight away. Taking advantage of a mix of both light and dark for its décor, the colour pattern is broken up with the use of serene LED lighting which stretches along much of the ceiling in numerous colours.

Café Lahore

During the Metrolink service construction through Oldham town centre, it may have been a fear that Café Lahore would have suffered due to the distraction. But nothing could be farther from the truth.

Based at an easy-to-reach location on Union Street in Oldham town centre, you have absolutely no excuse not to visit this “subtle but spectacular” restaurant.

With a colourful array of traditional Punjabi and Kashmiri dishes to choose from, Lahore has become a very popular spot for fans of this particular cuisine.

A simple yet elegant design takes a backseat, though, as patrons from across Oldham are consistently blown away by two things: The stellar service and the quality food.
