Best Curry in Harpenden

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

This restaurant is one of my favourite restaurants in Harpenden. There is an excellent choice of Indian and Bangladeshi food which is always appetisingly and creatively presented to woo the palate. We have been there over the past few years and we are recognised each time we call. There is great variety of food and desserts. It never fails. They... More

We have been going here for years now and it is a reliable favourite. Good service. Just 2 observations, can we have draft beer please and maybe just lose the free chocolates and knock a pound off the bill?

I expected more from a restaurant in Harpenden and believed this place had a good reputation. It was an average Indian serving average food and nothing special...I'm Indian by the way. When I asked the waiter if his mother would be happy with what we were served he replied that it had been a very busy evening! I'll take that... More

The Cafe Jeera has been turning out consistent and delicious food for years now. I think it’s better priced the Cinnamon (up the road), and it’s more comfy inside. Cannot fault it. And they do Kingfisher in pints..... perfect!
