Had a meal out with my 2 nieces, staff were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. Poppadoms and pickles appeared to keep us going whilst we made our decisions. The selection of food was excellent, and we chose a variety of dishes to share. Everything...we had was well prepared and presented and we loved it all. Would definitely come back here again.More

We ordered a takeaway from this restaurant. Firstly to be greeted with such a friendly and chirpy gentleman that called me by my first name, I instantly knew i was ordering with the best Indian restaurant and this filled me with such confidence. Then the...delivery guy came with such a nice polite and nice presence. The food is delicious and tasted so fresh. The onion bhaji in particular was the best I've ever tasted. The poppadoms taste fresh, authentic and easy to eat. My husband said the birriani was also as good as it gets. Very impressed and no faults at all, highly recommend this restaurant and we hope to join you soon to eat in.More

Visited with a friend who lives in Hemel Hempstead last night and had an excellent meal. It's his regular and I can see why. It stands head and shoulders above my local Indian. The food was absolutely top notch and the service friendly and efficient....Rarely am I moved to write reviews, but this was one occasion where I felt it was warranted.More
