We tend to avoid Sat evenings because it does get very busy and sometimes that involves a wait because he insists on cooking every meal from scratch and to order. His food... More

Went without booking on a busy Saturday evening. Was greeted by Jamal who said, "This restaurant is rubbish." This contradicted all of the great local reports that had taken me there. But I like self-deprecation. "The place is rubbish, not enough room or space. The food is great but the restaurant is rubbish." Jamal told me it would be another... More

Been to this restaurant on various occasions over the years, and found it to be consistently good, you can have it cooked as spicy as you require and the portions are plentiful. Overall, highly recommended.

Me and my family have been regulars at Jamal's for years. You've always had to wait on a Saturday but we don't usually mind as the curries were worth the wait. However last week was the final straw. We asked for a bottle of dry white wine and the staff brought sweet and opened it. When we pointed out it... More

Returned to Jamal's after a previous visit which we enjoyed. Sadly the second visit was a polar opposite. We went on a Saturday expecting it to be busy but found it surprisingly quiet. Upon arrival we asked for a table for two but were left sat by the bar for 15 minutes even though there were plenty of free tables.... More

So impressed with this Indian, there wasn't a long wait as I went at about 5:30 on a Thursday but honestly I wouldn't of minded if there was a long wait because the food was so beautiful and so authentic. You can tell after your first bite how much effort has been put in. Jamal does take orders/serve food table... More

As a regular of jamals me and my partner have always found it to be the best indian we have tasted so far..the chicken tikka masala especially is the most tasty weve ever tried, we have never found the waiting time an issue as we know fresh food takes time to prepare.. The restaurant itself is very traditional and the... More
