Really nice food, all four of us said our mains tasted great, very flavoursome and nicely spicey. Fantastic chilli paneer, salmon tikka and chilli chicken masala. Located in a lovely old building with exposed beams,run by attentive but not pushy staff and with a very nice relaxed atmosphere. We've been here several times before and always had a great meal...

Visited this restaurant on a Friday night as was enticed by the lovely looking building, however on arrival we ordered poppadoms that smelled and tasted like they were cooked in old fat. We then waited very patiently for 90 minutes for our food to arrive and when it did it was cold and tasted very bland. The reheated chicken was... More

I love Indian food. I eat at lots of Indian restaurants round the UK. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER VISITED. Why ? The staff are excellent, welcoming and very attentive. Great location and very clean and warm. Now the best part.....the food was amazing, fresh, hot and delicious. I like HOT curries, and my Vindaloo was... More

This little gem restaurant is hidden away off George Street and is in a lovely old Tudor timber building so the ambience of good. Good value, quick service and friendly staff.

This is an excellent little find. Situated just off George Street, I came here with a few friends after a footie tournament. After being welcomed graciously by the restaurant we were shown to a table. The ambiance was good and the beer flowing. The temperature was a little cold inside, heating could have definitely done with turning up the notch.... More

The restaurant inside was very nice but really really cold. When asking the waiter if something could be done he just shrugged walked away and said nothing. We then asked the waiter for a mango lasse, it took him nearly 25 minutes to tell us that they were too busy and that we would have to order another drink. That... More

Hidden away down an alley way, this restaurant is the very definition of a hidden gem. I rate it as one of the best restaurants in St Albans in any category. It is without a doubt the very best Indian restaurant in St Albans. It's the food that's most outstanding. Absolutely delicious. Vivid flavours that only come from fresh and... More

Came here last night (Thursday) with a couple of friends and we were all pleasantly surprised. Not been here since it was the sultan. Had the chicken sashlik (ignore the spelling) which was one of the best starters I have ever had in a curry house and it was a big portion for a starter. Went for the chicken vindaloo... More

Always searching for good Indian food around the UK, and after seeing such glowing reviews of this restaurant, our visit to Samoji proved extremely disappointing. Accepting that we had booked an early table on a Sunday evening, we expected the restaurant to be quiet, but not to the degree of being the only party eating until nearly 9.00pm. The restaurant...
