As we entered we were attentively greeted by 2 staff members who offered us menus and sorted out the seating, as there was a crowd of us. The restaurant looked authentic and the menu was well set out. I had the vindaloo and... read more

Maybe I'm being unfair - but they managed to ruin a night out. Had some Restaurant Choice vouchers that listed this restaurant (one of two in Hemel Hempstead) - I asked about this when booking and was told it was OK. After a meal for 8 people (which was OK) - the vouchers were then refused, despite me showing them... More

Been meaning to go for a while after several referrals from friends and family alike. Grossly disappointed. The staff on the whole were surly, food overpriced and food order was wrong and a drink order didn't arrive. The restaurant is small and there were empty tables during our visit so no excuse for poor service. The choice is fairly wide... More

I have been here various times and never been disappointed until my recent visit. From the moment we arrived the staff were miserable. Normally you receive a friendly welcome as you would expect in any restaurant. However we were served by at least 3 of the 5 staff working that evening and not one of them cracked a smile or...

Dont know if we caught them on a bad night but not one member of staff appeared to be having a good time. We had to ask to order, and remind them to bring wine and food. That said when it did arrive it was very nice so well done to the chef as he saved the evening. Get a... More
