Fairly good, not quite what I expected

I've eaten in Indian/Asian restaurants all over the country - I'd say it's my staple diet! - and I found the food in Dil's to be okay but nothing special. The restaurant was really quiet (albeit it was midweek). First impressions - I'm always sceptical when the yoghurt sauce that comes with the... read more

Went on Thursday with 4 other blokes. We all had starters and mains with rices and nanns and beers of course. The bill came to just under £100. Bargain! Enjoyed it so much I took my wife there on Valentines night & she really enjoyed it to.

Went on a Wednesday evening so it was fairly quiet and service was very fast, efficient and friendly. The menu is varied and has good explanations of what each dish is. All three of my party enjoyed excellent meals. If you want an indian in Hertford and haven't tried this place then I completely recommend it. Very sensibly priced too... More

The service in their was great, the staff were friendly and most importantly the food was spot on! I've a had a lot of curries in Hertford and this... More

Have visited several times before and always had good food and service. Visited Saturday 6 th December. Was very busy. Think they couldn't cope. Customers complaining long wait for food. Our food came quite quickly. Mango chutney was like water. And only onion in other dish instead of mixture of tomato cucumber and coriander. So starters a let down. Two... More

We decided to get takeaway from Gills because of it's superb reputation on Tripadvisor. Sad to say we were very disappointed, food turned up lukewarm and was cold by the time it was on the plates. Both our meals lacked any punch, bland is the best way to describe, which is not what you expect from Indian food. Shame, as... More

I love this restaurant, its small, yes, but the food is always so good. Whether we opt for a takeaway or to dine in - the quality of the meals never fail to impress. I always recommend this place if someone is in the area. Staff are polite and friendly, plus you never feel 'rushed' when eating. A great place... More

I have been coming to Dils for as long as I can remember. Such great value for money, the food is always spot on and the service is impeccable. They have a lot of unusual and jazzy dishes without the price tags attached (most of the Indian restaurants in Hertford are over priced) but not Dils! Would defiantly recommended :)
