First time back here in nearly 20 years. Still producing a good range of satisfying Indian choices at reasonable prices. Always a pleasure

My partner and I eat here very often as it is so close to us. Every time the service and staff have been excellent and we have never been disappointed. The thing I like most about the Jharna is that the majority of the menu is gluten free (apart from naan breads etc) and the staff are knowledgable of this... More

Have been to Jharna a few times but had a meal on Saturday night with friends and was blown away by the quality of the food and the service. Our whole table was very impressed by the selection of dishes in the menu and then by the food that came out. In particular the Pashwari naan was amazing. Drinks quite... More

Excellent Indian in a lovely upstairs restaurant. The dining room is large but quiet. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and helpful, coming to catch us with an item that was left behind at the table.

The tikka masala meat had been nowhere near the tandoor. The tikka masala sauce was NOT tikka masala yet the waiter insisted the sweet cardamon flavoured sauce WAS tikka masala. The dishes were £14 and £15 each and included rice but this seemed very expensive when the quality was poor and the order was wrong (or they just don't know... More

This resturant is my best Indian resturant in Belfast. Delicious food, nice staff, romantic place, reasonable prices. I am addicted to their Lamb Bryani.

Lovely ambience. Delicious food. Satisfactory portions. Perfect service. We stayed on after lunch to chat for a quite a long while and the staff did not chase us out. Very patient staff.

Ive been to this restaurant a few times and usually its been ok at best but on my last visit in august 16, the service and food I received was dire at best. I orderd a dish called chicken tikka palok and what I was served could only be described as a plate of oil with chicken and spinach through... More
