Nice restaurant and good service. I personally felt the menu was somewhat limited in terms of variety. However, the food we ordered was presented very well and flavoursome. For a three course meal a party of 7 paid £40 pp, no alcoholic drinks were ordered. The restaurant was fairly busy for a Saturday evening. We were seated and served promptly.

A very anglicised restaurant with bland, tasteless food. Surprised by so many positive ratings and definitely not the "Best of St. Albans". My wife had the paneer to start with which was good after which it went downhill. The naan bread was cold and the vegetable side dishes looked and tasted like they'd come out of a ready made supermarket... More

Insanely good restaurant. Decor and ambiance are spot on. The french-indian fusion is genius. Too many interesting dishes to satisfy one visit. If you have good taste you won't be disappointed.

Our party of six dined at this restaurant this last Saturday evening - the food is a 'fusion of Indian and French' cuisine. The place was packed and is obviously popular....and that was part of the problem. Our starter portions were very small and not cheap. They arrived after about half an hour. I ordered the filet steak for my... More

We found this restaurant by accident a couple of years ago and have been back a number of times trying almost everything on the menu including the special set menu at "happy hour". Last Saturday we booked the private room for eleven of us for a friend's birthday. The service was a bit slow but otherwise very good and the... More

We visited as a birthday treat. The dark wood interior, soft lighting, crisp white tablecloths and shiny silver cutlery was just the beginning. A small superb menu to choose from and upon receipt of the food it proved to be everything we hoped for - delicious flavoursome dishes that tingled our tastebuds. I would definitely go again. Price wise, it's... More

I am lucky enough to eat in some top restaurants through work and can honestly say that the food in this place is superb and as good as many west end trendy eateries with Michelin stars ... My only issue is the background music which doesn't need to be played and waiting times can be a little on the king... More

The name might confuse some, but it is quite appropriate. Chad has produced a superb fusion of Indian and European cuisine. Enjoy cocktails in the paneled bar before your meal. Then through to the dining room for a taste of modern fusion cooking at its best.
