Quality food at really low prices.

We had a lovely sunday lunch at this place. Our favourite consist of Korma and Tikka Masala to tease our sweet spots and could not complain. Probably only thing to let this place down are guys walking in with shorts and football tops. The biggest surprise was the bill as it turn out they had 2 for... read more

I used to be a regular at this beautiful restaurant. Having hit on a few poor experiences in a short space of time I stopped calling. Finding myself in Belfast for lunch with my family they suggested we try there. I didn't take much persuading. At 1:15 there was a decent amount of diners - a good sign. We were... More

Possibly the best on the Lisburn are, although I know that's a contentious issue and a bold claim! Everyone has their favourite Indian restaurant in Belfast (a city I like to think of as a Curry Few Sqaure Mile), and while this isn't mine, it's definitely in my top three. Very generous portions, beautifully presented and served by attentive staff.... More

Had a decent meal here before the Northern Ireland v Romania match. I must have been one of the men wearing a football top - we can be pretty civilised! The menu looked good so I ordered something I hadn't seen before. Turned out to be indistinguishable from chicken korma. Also could have been hotter (temperature, not spice) but, to... More

Nice atmosphere (allowing for the fact that the place was full of men in football tops). Food very nice. Service ok but could be improved. Recommended.

First there was the long wait for pur RESERVED table, then there was the even longer wait 50 minutes for our food. During this time the tables around us with guests who arrived after us were all served while we waited. We were given 2 plates of poppadum between 10 and 2 bottles ofwater, which would have been fine if... More

I think this restaurant is the best in Belfast! It the one place I want to go to when going for an Indian. I love the different dishes, absolutely delicious and the fire place in the middle of the room, really gives the restaurant atmosphere.

One of the best Indian meals I have had in Belfast. I would rate The Jharna as a fine dining venue with décor to match.

Went there with my boyfriend for dinner, arrived about 8.30 pm without booking and were seated straight away. It was fairly busy but we were made to feel very welcome. Service was quick and attentive and the food was absolutely wonderful. We ate so quickly as we were starving but it was still gorgeous. In & out in 45 minutes... More
