The three best restaurants in Belfast according to TripAdvisor

2 min read

Belfast is known for its much-loved food scene, with restaurants catering to every taste you could imagine available right on our doorstep.

But when deciding which spot to try out next, many of us rely on reviews websites that rank restaurants such as TripAdvisor, with figures from 2019 showing the site has a whopping 456 million unique visitors worldwide every month.

TripAdvisor uses a “popularity index” to rank businesses, which determines guest satisfaction with the restaurant as a whole. This means restaurants won’t just be ranked by price, but instead other values such as quality, quantity, and how recent the reviews are.

So, customers will not only know if a particular restaurant fits their budget, but also how previous diners rate the cleanliness, standard of food, service, and much more.

Each search is ranked by the quality of review, ranked by the popularity index to make sure that reviews will be fresh.

Here are the top three restaurants in Belfast on TripAdvisor right now:

1. Himalayan Nepalese and Indian Restaurant

Clinching the top spot is Himalayan Restaurant on Belfast’s Botanic Avenue. The family style restaurant is located above the Subway on Botanic and serves the best bits of dishes from across India and Nepal.

They’re in the £8-£20 price range and have dishes which cater to those who are vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free.

Some of the most recent reviews talk about the brilliant range of food on offer, large portions, and fabulous customer service.

2. Nu Delhi

Nu Delhi Indian restaurant is situated at the heart of Belfast city centre on Great Victoria Street.

The mid-range spot is open every evening until 11pm and was listed in TripAdvisor’s list of the UK’s 10 favourite South Asian takeaways in 2020, thanks to their fantastic offerings during lockdown.

Reviews mention the great buzz about the place, singling out the fantastic customer service, tasty food, and lovely cocktails as high points.

One reviewer even said it’s the best Indian restaurant in Northern Ireland.
