“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Me, my mum and sister we're visiting St Albans for a few days and we fancied an indian, we we're aimlessly walking around searching for one that we liked the look of. I am so glad we decided to go here over all the others, the waiters we're very helpful and polite, it was pretty empty when we looked in the window we choose to give it a try and the food was beautiful i had the butter chicken (they call it something else) but wow it was gorgeous! I'd advise you to go in and try it, amazing food, polite service, nice surroundings and a reasonable restaurant price! Go in and try please!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We have eaten at this restaurant many times it is a real gem, Every dish is individual and presented perfectly. We find the host and his staff very welcoming. We are surprised that sometimes it is very quiet i think because it is not on the high st people dont know that its there. Perhaps I shouldnt review it and keep it to ourselves

“A Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Only discovered this place about 6 months ago and have been here quite a few times since. The food is exceptional (try the Salmon Tikka!) and the service is great, lovely atmosphere and spotlessly clean. Has become one of our favourite places to eat.

“Exceptionally tasty and well presented food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We went on a Sunday lunch and were the only people in the restaurant. The food tasted fresh and with some wonderful flavours; as well as this, the presentation was excellent and different to the vast majority of Indian restaurants. Service was appropriate and it was good value at £8.95 for the main, side and rice or naan (although never sure why this is called 'three courses'...not even three plates since it all arrived on one plate!).

“great food, terrible service/attitude”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We've ordered and eaten at this restaurant many times. The food has always been very good, but they messed up a dinner party take away order, tried to blame us for the problem, and when we complained had a really aggressive and unpleasant attitude - in this case from the person who said he was the manager.

In summary, if they don't mess up then they are great, but if they do then don't expect any form of customer service. Will never order from these guys again. We've had the occasional issue with other take-away restaurants in town and without exception they have tried hard to fix the issues, unlike these guys who don't give a damn, even about long term customers.
