Summary: Very slow service. We arrived on Sunday around 10; there were 8 of us - half of us in our late 40s+. We waited over 1hour to get starters. We asked for a selection of starters to share and these were presented on 4 plates. The starter I tried was some sort of meat but was as tough as... More

We were having a 'date night' so wanted a romantic meal with wine and delicious food. We were sat by the window and I have got to say it's not the most amazing view I've looked out upon. The service was great, attentive staff, chatty and smiley. Slight language barrier when ordering but was ok. The food was served quickly... More

Had another take away last night. Very good food and service. Collected in person as we were out in town and saved a further 10%.

Going to Dils was not planned, however we thought we would take a chance and see if we could grab a table for 6! We were seated more or less instantly, and were offered drinks and poppadoms in minutes!! Food was very good, although there were far too many raisins in my curry; wasn't sure if I was eating a...

The food is incredible here, it's not the prettiest but it's my Indian of choice in Hertford. Their Lamb Dansak is absolutely amazing.

We used to go there often with friends, but the food went down hill and the takeaway portions got smaller. We went recently and the food is good! Note to the staff: turn off the TV with Bollywood videos and play music, smile, chat with customers and be attentive. Jan surprised there is never anyone there when we go in.

The food, ambience, service were acceptable provided you understood you were eating in a suburban Indian restaurant circa 1970. There are more contemporary restaurants in Hertford.

I booked a table in advance for a Mother's Day meal and specifically requested a highchair for my daughter over the phone. When we arrived at the restaurant on Mother's Day we were told they had no working highchairs. What bad customer service and not family friendly at all. If they had even called me to tell me in advance... More
