Excellent food but relatively expensive drinks

As on previous visits the food was really enjoyable. However, the drinks were relatively expensive. Currently, the drinks prices are not shown on the website. For our group of 15 diners, the average costs per person were: food £15 (starter and mains), drinks £11. Drinks at £11 per person were very... read more

We have dined at this restaurant many times. This was the best curry meal we have ever experienced there. It was excellent. Drinks options were limited. No J2O or low alcohol beer.

Great value and proper curry offerings - non of your poncey 'modern' Indian cuisine. This place is my kind of Indian and I loved it. This was my our first visit and certainly not our last. Recommended.

Ordered a takeaway on Saturday, The curry might as well have been a cumin curry and not the chicken curry as ordered it was so overpowering you could not taste anything else but cumin. The nan bread was stone cold. I have ordered from here and eaten here many times before. I do not know what went so wrong with... More

With out a doubt the best curry house in Harpenden. Top food and top service. Used to use the Shapla but found the service was bad and the food wasnt up to scratch either. Havng eaten in all the curry houses in Harpenden this is head and shoulders above them all.

We normally get a take away from Cafe Jeera which is always hot and tasty and on time but occasionally we go out for an Indian and tonight we did and we had a fantastic meal. The food is delicious, the service impeccable. They ask if you would like to take home your left overs and they always give you... More

Dinner with a group of 15 on a Tuesday evening. Papadoms, chutneys, main, side, rice, naan, cobras, coffees, tip, £25 per head. I had Sizzling chicken Murg and Brinjal Bhaji which were very tasty. The menu has been updated since my last visit a couple of months ago. I think the new menu prices are now a fraction lower, and... More

Love this Indian restaurant. We hadn't been there for a while but have eaten there twice in the last month. New menu and absolutely scrumptious. When eating Indian food I do not normally finish all my food but over the last two visits it's been clear plates all round. Great service too! Only thing is they always want to take... More
