Lovely food, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Amazing creamy sauce, a lot of rice and incredible saag aloo. All served piping hot.

Fri night takeaway, delivered on time, everything ordered arrived, starters good, mains OK. I wasn't disappointed but nothing really stood out for me. My boys enjoyed their shashliks more than I enjoyed my lamb curry, maybe I ordered the wrong dish. Perfectly OK meal, but not as good as I had hoped.

Came here based on TA advice and was not disappointed- it was empty when we can on a Wednesday night which is always a worry but all was good The venue itself is a tad old school Indian restaurant which I love, the welcome was courteous and friendly The menu was extensive and well priced the food was very good...

After a long drive to Watford, i was very happy to find this great restaurant. Fantastic Chefs special starter, and cracking selection of curries, rice and breads. Very friendly service. Ate in the first night, and ordered a delivery the second night. Thanks folks, it was excellent.

I'll preface by saying this is far from the best indian food I've tasted, however it was still very tasty. You will get more food than you can possibly eat in one sitting if you're not careful. Definitely go on a Wednesday (I think?) when they have a 5 course special. So much food, so much good!

I have not been here since last year, so was surprised to see the old owners had left, which filled me with dread, as I really liked the old staff and the food (but had never left a review before, sorry!). We then found out Thursday night is no longer the banquet night, it is now Wednesday. Unlike another reviewer... More

Ate here after a day at nearby Harry Potter studios - couldn't have found a fault even if we tried. Both our meals were cooked to perfection and very reasonably priced too. Helpful staff. Wide variety of choice on the menu, we were very happy :-)
