A lovely experience of Indian food

I have been to this restaurant many times as my family, especially my 79 year old mother, love it. Food tastes good and is reasonably priced and the decor and ambience is lovely. I would highly recommend the Jharna.

I love the Jharna! The decor, the food and the service are all of a high standard! The food is amazing and it makes for a great evening out! Spent New Year's Eve here of 2013/2014 and it was such a nice way to celebrate as it was packed and had a lovely atmosphere! Always my first choice for a... More

Was staying in the malone lodge and asked for a good Indian restaurant and they sent me to the Jharna. I had the chicken tikka madras & my girlfriend got the chicken korma and hands down the best we've ever had. Service is very pleasant. I will return again the next time I'm in belfast.

At Jaharna they attempt to make the food healthy and to this end I do think they succeed. They don't use false synthetic colours nor do they use excessive oil in their sauces. Any food we've ever had here is fresh and well presented. We've eaten here several times. Some of the dishes are created fusion Indian food and they're... More

Friendly, helpful staff. Would recommend this restaurant as food is of a very high standard. Introduced it to friends who live in Newtownards and they travel up to Belfast frequently now as they enjoy it so much. Manager engages with customers to give a welcoming feeling to visits and insures everything is to their taste.

This restaurant is one of the most delicious Indian restaurants in Belfast. The food is delicious, portions are just right, the service is fantastic, and overall this restaurant is excellent. For this reason, I visit this restaurant regularly with my friends and I would recommend it to anyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed Indian meal yesterday. The service was very personable, the food was very tasty and very reasonably priced. The restaurant also gave us a free after dinner drink which we all enjoyed. The menu also offers UK food in case there is someone in your group who would prefer that. Would recommend if you are looking for good... More
