Fantastic food and service.

Love coming here. Great location and fantastic food. My favourite local Indian. I've always had good service. Food is cooked fresh. Often have take away or delivery. Never been let down. Friends I've brought like it too.

Have been a few times with daughter and friends, also with family. One good meal seems to cancel out another.

Having visited a number of Indian restaurants in Hemel Hempstead, this gets my vote for the worst one visited and should be re-named The Marina "not so nice" spice lounge I just wished it matched the marinas surroundings. Both the food and service were not good and shall not be visiting again

Visited here on a Friday evening whilst staying at the Holiday Inn Express nearby. Friendly staff and a good menu selection. I particularly enjoyed the crab curry ! Would visit again and seemed popular with the locals which is always a good sign.

The food at this place is nice enough, but the service leaves a little to be desired. When you walk in, they will immediately ask you "Have you booked???", rather than politely saying "Good evening". I've eaten here 3 times, and found the food to be decent enough; although a little overpriced compared to other Indian restaurants in Hemel. The... More

We went to the restaurant for our Christmas dinner/annual reunion in January. The restaurant was comfortable and the facilities were clean. The staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. The food selection was very good with something for the most discerning diets. the food was well cooked and presented, and came out at the same time. There were seven... More

Went to this restaurant as was staying in a hotel nearby. On arrival on a Friday evening, we were frowned upon after entering, and then asked `have you booked' rather than `good evening'. The restaurant was half empty - so not sure what the ig deal was. Was seated and served by serveral waiters including the manager. The quality of... More

Appalling service which is a shame as the food's pretty good. Long waits, others served before us, surly and unsmiling responses

Food was good with plenty of choice on the menu. Decor is a bit typical for an Indian restaurant. Staff are a bit dour but efficient. Would visit again.

After reading some of the reviews, I wasn't too sure about visiting this place but it was close by and had tables available so decided to give it ago. It is quite a small restaurant but the staff were polite, service was quick without feeling hurried. The food was pretty good for the price and decent sized portions. Would visit... More
