Food was average for an Indian restaurant and service good but the shock we had was the price of half pints of beer as they charge you a silly amount extra than if you were to buy one pint instead. The staff blamed it on the brewery saying that they told them they had to charge like that but people... More

The atmosphere is fantastic. The food is always flavoursome, filling and hot. The staff are ace and as a regular they remember your name. Fully booked? no probs, give us a minute.

Excellent food but sometimes not as spicy hot as I'd like. In London the flavours are just a tad hotter. It is a pity they don't deliver as we are 2 miles away, and another restaurant will deliver to us. I think the new one might steal a lot of trade.

The Helal is the venue of choice we book when going out for an Indian meal and worth the drive. There are many curry houses much nearer but we are always warmly welcomed (though by n means frequent/regular visitors), the atmosphere is good and you can relax and enjoy yourself with family and friends or as a meal for 2....

I tried the Mr Naga this time, really enjoyed it, they manage to make it hot but really fresh tasting at the same time. It may just be my new regular dish!

We went to Helal as a family this time as some of the kids were at dance class in town. Just for a change I had the Helal special and must say it was excellent. My wife had Murgi masala which was also excellent (I pinched a bit!) and the kids had tandoori chicken after their class. The keema naans... More

Having been to several Indian restaurants we found this to really only be an average one. The seating arrangements are booths, which is quite good as it does shield you from excessive noise. The starters of onion bargee and shish kebab were very tasty, However, from there it went downhill a bit. The main courses of chicken tikka cham cham,and... More

We visit this Indian Restaurant on a very regular basis, at least every 2 weeks for the previous 20+ years, as we find the food and the service excellent. This is a family run traditional Indian restaurant, where the owners and staff really make you feel welcome. The Chef, Manic, cooks an excellent madras, just the right heat and the... More
