Four of us decided to visit this restaurant, which was recommeded by locals. The restaurant was not totally full, but somehow the service was very slow. The food was good basic indian cuisine and best food I ate in Watford during my 4 day visit. When we finally got our bill, the owner apologised for the slow service, which was a nice gesture.

This restaurant offers good indian food with reasonable price.

It was a welcomed surprise to have the manager explain the regional difference in indian cuisine. "the rustic home cooked style of the punjab more subtle than other regions, influenced by the lavish mogul kings"he told us.When it was served it certainly lived up to the hype. The lamb shank was melt in the mouth and delicious and anari ghost with its pomegranate twist was exceptional as well as the karahi ghost for lovers of a full on curry was fantastic certainly didnt expect to find this kind of food in Watford.Added to listening to some memorable old numbers of Sam Cook completed a wonderful night out.

I came across this restaurant by chance as it was the first I found walking from my hotel. Nicely decorated in a modern style and no flock wallpaper in sight.

My request for just tap water was supplied in a pint glass with ice my order was taken then a complimentary popadom and pickles arrived.

My sheek kebab starter was served on a sizzling plate and was two 6 inch fingers of lamb mince laced with fresh coriander and spices and it was quite hot. No side salad but the kebab was very nice indeed.

I has lamb rogan Josh with rice and a paratha for main course. The rogan was quite a light sauce with unusually what seemed to be finely chopped tomatoes through the sauce rather than large chunks. An above average rogan Josh. Rice was fluffy but although the paratha was flaky it was a little heavy. Overall above average and worth a visit.

Great tasting food, have been many times, enjoyed every dish tried with each mouth full of flavour.

Atmosphere could be better, but restaurant is clean and tidy.

Staff are friendly and try their best to please and ensure a good experience.

Service charge is added to bills, so we do not leave a tip regardless of how good the service is.
