Originally going to the pub over the canal but it was full so tried this restaurant. Eating early it was fairly quiet but was very busy later on. The menu was very extensive and varied. The food was well presented and of good quality. Can't fault the service either. Would happily return (and probably will). May be a good idea... More

Had a lovely meal here. The poppadums came out quickly and were nice and fresh. The cherry chutney was lovely, especially mixed with the yoghurt dip as that was a bit spicy. The menu had some nice variations from standard Indian fare and the staff were happy to help with any questions about a particular dish. The three of us... More

I have had take away a couple of times and it has been great. The first time I stopped in the place was empty but the next time people could not get a table without a reservation.

Very disappointed after a 4 hour journey he Marina was the closest Indian to the hotel and we'll recommended on trip advisor. I walked in and was told "we have nothing" Not even an offer to wait for a table. Extremely rude and disappointing was really looking forward to eating here.

Fantastic food, great service, attentive but not overbearing staff, reasonable price. One of the best Indian meals I've ever had, anywhere. And my wife got a rose!

Was staying in the Holiday Inn Express across the canal and wanted a Friday night curry. After looking at the reviews we weren't expecting too much but as it was raining we did fancy a long walk into Hemel Hempstead. The place was busy and nearly all the tables were taken but they accommodated us by resetting a table. The... More

I went here with my boyfriend as part of our anniversary celebrations. I'd read really good reviews about this place, and as we were staying at the hotel across the canal, it made sense to give it a go. We were bitterly disappointed. After reading how the staff were 'friendly' and the food was 'fantastic', it was almost like we... More
