Lovely meal

Only issue was that we were sat near the bar the the waiters tended to wander around a bit. Otherwise a lovely meal in pleasant surroundings. Would definitely go again if in the area.

Nothing to dislike, the food was excellent. During peak seasons I would suggest that you might have to book a table in advance as there are not that may tables in there.

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
