We decided to try the Jalsha one night after a friends recommendation. We decided to place an order for home delivery as the weather was awful. We were told the order would be with us within an hour... An hour and twenty minutes later and we receive a phone call that they can't find our house. I direct them over the phone. The total to pay was accurate to their website. I had the KIng Prawn Sag and my girlfriend had the Chicken Tikka Dansak. Both mains were fine. Nothing great, just fine. The rice was fairly bland and tasteless. The naan breads were cold and mine was over cooked. Far too crispy and so I had to leave half. This was our first try of Jalsha and shouldn't imagine we'll go back as Canterbury has a lot of Indian choices.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice and the food was excellent! The service is excellent t as well! We were abit unsure about going to another Indian restaurant in canterbury because the first one we went to was raj venue as recommended by trip advisor reviews but was deeply disappointed and the food was awful! So I thought Jalsha might be the same but was not at all disappointed! The restaurant is 1 mile from city centre and is defintly worth the visit if you visit canterbury! As I come from the Asian background it can sometimes to be hard to find a restaurant that we enjoy and suits our taste buds! So overall very happy

The restaurant was clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. The menu at first appeared overwhelming because it is so comprhensive, but after picking through it for a while it conjured up a table full of wonderfully aromatic and tasteful dishes. We were not disappointed. There was so much for all of us (four people) to tuck into and taste, it was a delight and the end result, the bill not excessive for what we had. An overall wonderful experience.

We chose to have an Indian Take-Away with the family for a Saturday night in, and they agreed it was the nicest Indian they have had in a long time. We ordered via Just-Eat, and the delivery was prompt and without mistake. We'd reccommend Jalsha for eating in or taking out!

Visited on Friday, food was lovely, came out quickly.
Service was good and priced reasonable
Only negative would be a lack of choice on alcohol
