Before you make the long drive back to Maple Creek or Lethbridge after finding the new car you’ve been searching for, why not stop for some spicy Indian foods? The variety of eateries in Calgary ensures you’ll have no problem finding plenty of exotic cuisine as well as hometown Ales from some of Medicine Hat’s finest brewers to whet your whistle and clear your palate as you wait for the next tasty course. Once you’ve had these, you can start moving through our lists of favorite Indian Restaurants near Medicine Hat!

The Himalayan

Creamy curries, tender lamb, and a wide array of options for those with food allergies. The Himalayan is one of the most popular Indian restaurants outside of Medicine Hat, and it isn’t hard to see why.

Short of stopping by the Farmer’s Market and picking your own produce, it doesn’t get any fresher than Tamarind. They offer a wide range of vegetarian specialties made with fresh, local ingredients, as well as options for the carnivore that include lamb and tender butter chicken.

JP’s Indian Bistro

Rich, flavorful Indian food, friendly service, and a cozy atmosphere have made JP’s a top pick for locals and visitors alike. We recommend the lamb curry, but there are plenty of other tasty options, including vegetarian choices and selections for those with dietary restrictions.

Hours: Sunday – Saturday, 12:00 PM – 10:00 PM
