More than you should eat, for a great price

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 :-)

We stumbled into this restaurant after a day at Harry Potter world, and really craving an Indian meal. The place was very quiet, but the food was outstanding. Made fresh, full of flavour and exactly what we needed. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting an authentic, cheap meal. Catered for children and adults, one who was a vegan and... More

I lived in Watford for a year and only found this place in the last week. The outside looks dull but the guy who owns it is excellent and the food is great. If you have never been, give it a try, I am sure that you will not be disappointed.

We have been going to this restaurant for 6 years and we have always felt welcomed and the food good. We regularly receive emails from management offering deals including the banquet night deal on every night of the week. We have taken up this offer on quite a few Friday and Saturday nights over the last year or so and... More
