My brother has been raving about this place for years and now I have finally got round to trying it for myself. I can't speak highly enough of this place. The staff are excellent, the food is not only well cooked but perfectly portioned. There is a very quiet and relaxed atmosphere as well. We were attended to perfectly and... More

My family and I have been going to this restaurant for all the years it has been in business. The staff are always friendly and keen to assist. The manager is a friendly outgoing person but expects a high standard of service from the restaurant staff to the chefs. The premises are spotless and welcoming there is nothing nicer than... More

Stopped in with a friend for the lunch menu deal. Excellent value for a starter and main course. The food was speedy and very tasty as always - I have yet to have a bad meal here in several years attending.

We arrived with a group of 11 on New Year's Day. Beautiful modern furnishings and top service. Very knowledgable staff who had to deal with two of our group who are celiacs. Freshly prepared food in a partially open kitchen, the food was delicious. Complimentary liquors finished off a great night. Wine and beer prices are certainly on the steep... More

Small portions, high prices and long wait times especially to order. The food was fine if a bit tepid, drink orders were forgotten and an addition was made to the bill after if was settled. They were very accommodating in increasing our reservation by 3 people at the last minute and provided a complimentary aperitif after the meal. Most of... More

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.

Thank Wajere
