Great Curry House

A traditional curry house somewhat tucked away but well worth seeking out. Attentive service without feeling rushed. Would recommend the Rogan Josh chicken and mushroom pilau.

I was staying in the area on business and I was delighted to have stumbled upon this place by chance. The menu offers plenty of choice for the adventurous who would like to deviate from the usual curry house offerings and also all the usual favourites too. I highly recommend the chicken peshwari.

We visited this restaurant as a group of 14 people and none of us were happy with the pathetic service , lack of courtesy amongst the staff. The food was undercooked full of onions and lacked the taste. I personally had the worst Indian food of my life at this restaurant!!

Stopped by here with some depends. The food was tasty, however the service ruined the experience. They weren't patient.

Rude staff. Dreadful service. Terrible food. Hiring a cab to pick up a tandoori off Brick Lane would be better than spending a penny here.

The location and decor may not be the most charming ever but in simple food terms, I think this place is arguably the best Indian restaurant in Harpenden.

We had a meal with neighbours in the restaurant earlier this year and really enjoyed the food. However we ordered a takeaway last evening and what a dreadful experience. The food took an hour to arrive and the chicken bhuna dish appeared to be just onions with undercooked chicken. I spoke to the restaurant and they agreed to replace the... More

I was in a party of 12 who visited around 8.30pm on a Thursday evening. We had poppadums etc, a main and side, naans, average 2 Cobras each, cost including tip £27 each. The restaurant was busy but we were served efficiently within a reasonable time. Nice atmosphere, sudued lighting. Everyone was happy with their food. I have dined there... More

After having ordered what was an average meal with a hefty price tag (£20 minimum delivery) i must say that the man i spoke to upon ordering my food was most rude when i complained that my food had been delivered cold and rice was very hard - his response was 'put it in the microwave' which tells me that...
