Great Indian Restaurant loads of Vegetarian!

I have been coming to this restaurant for many years and it has a consistently high standard you can usually just turn up during the week but weekends you definitely need to book. Staff are very attentive and friendly, it's just a great curry place!

We had 2 main dishes, 2 vegetables dishes, 1 rice and a naan bread. The quality of the food was very high and the flavours were unique amongst all of the dishes. The best Indian food we have had in the local area for a very long time. A dish recommendation would be Keema Peas with extra ginger! Delicious.

Good quality food with lots of choice and many chef specials on offer. Fairly small restaurant and very full on our Saturday night meal so book. It's traditional fare which seems a bit old fashioned these days but I suppose suits some more than others. Personally I would like to have seen some modern interpretations of lighter, fresher dishes. Highly... More

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 expensive, bearing in mind some were on soft drinks...

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
