Me and my son visited Jivan's last night based on the Tripadvisor ratings. First impression... very basic, cramped and uninviting. I could have accepted all of that if the food had have been up to scratch and the price reflected the quality and surroundings - but it didn't. The sundries were fine (rice, naan etc) but my chicken and mushroom... More

Jivans was a great place to go , but ran down hill quite a bit. But it's much improved recently. I think someone else has taken it on. It's good to see that it's going back in the right direction. But jivans, please , clean the windows and give the place a lick of paint. ... Your lovely food deserves... More

I had visited Jivan Balti sometime back. Food was really yummy and it has a great ambiance. They have got decent space available on 1st floor of the building where small parties can be arranged. Overall tasty indian food with nice ambiance and good service.

It is in one of the "darker" parts of town but we love it. I am always glad when I can get a car space outside the restaurant but once inside I am, in heaven. Delicious food.

Jivan's is our 'go-to' destination for a curry. It's always great food and a reasonable price. Their hours are very flexible if you fancy a late meal. Staff are very friendly. The chicken tikka sizzler is delicious but everything we've eaten there has been great. There are numerous eateries on the same street but they are no competition whatsoever so... More

Jivan's used to offer the cheapest curry with the best nan breads ever served by friendly staff with a great deal of personal attention. Cheap, cheerful in shabby but somewhat charming surroundings. Sadly, this is no longer the case. A place gains a reputation, puts up its prices, fails to recognise its regular customer base and loses everything that made... More

Don't be fooled by the not so good looking interior. The food and service is excellent. This was my third visit, and the food has been absolutely brilliant every time. Best currys I've had.
