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!

Tried for the 1st time with good friends on Saturday night - liked the menu as had a few different items like Salmon Tikka and Monkfish. Starters all delicious, our curry was just the right heat and had great flavours although our friends found it a tad too hot -but perfect for us! Service was very prompt and seemed good... More

We have visited several times over the past few years and have never been able to fault the food or service. The restaurant has an authentic feel and good atmosphere so it is the Indian in Harpenden I would always choose for a special occasion. Monkfish curry particularly good and difficult to find in other Indian restaurants. I was slightly... More

We've recently moved to the area and have been trying many of the local restaurants. Café Jeera served great food - with distinct tastes and textures. It was a real pleasure to visit and is definitely our number one choice in the area.

Seems to have improved during the past year - very good staff ( albeit sometimes over staffed ). Must say food very good always tastes as it's just been cooked ! Will carry on using for my fortnightly curry with friends and wife best one in Harpenden by far.
