“A great local restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

We have just moved to Napsbury Park from central St Albans and this has become our favourite place for a curry. The quality of the food is always top notch (tastes really fresh) and its exceptionally tasty. We also find it's definitely less salty and greasy than most Indian restaurants, so we never leave feeling bloated or thirsty! It is also extremely good value: we probably pay under £40 including service for two mains, a side, a rice, a naan, poppadoms and two alcoholic drinks. The Flamingo chicken and Flamingo king prawn is especially good. We haven't had anything we've not liked, but the garlic mushroom starter was a bit boring. Staff are lovely and attentive, although quite often look rushed off their feet when it's busy and sometimes glasses can be left empty for a while you try to get a waiter's attention for more drinks. All in all though, a fantastic local gem.

“Designer cuisine at sensible prices, great quality and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

The staff are more than attentive and the menu is a mix of established and novel dishes with a huge selection to suit most palates. All dishes are rated for "heat" and if required the chef will adjust the temperature up or down.
We normally find we order too much, and the staff have no problems with a party that orders a whole selection of dishes to share.
Prices are good, the decor is fresh and comfortable - no flock wallpaper in sight!
Well looking forward to my next visit - since this place opened about five years ago it has gone from strength to strength. The menu is regularly updated.
And if you don't want to dine it, local delieries are possible too.
