Best indian restaurant in Hertford

I have been here many times with my family and friends, never once have I been disappointed. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly.

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

Dils is located above a costa coffee,we were the only diners on a Wednesday night so had the place to ourselves. Decor is bright and friendly only odd thing is the 2 tvs showing Indian TV Service was polite friendly and efficient. Menu is wide and varied including a small non- Indian section. Popadoms were fine,the dips were excellent. Our... More

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 poppadoms has a "tide mark" round it,... 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
