Visited here in January 2016 great food and service. Fav Indian in belfast. Great atmosphere. If you are going at weekends best to book as they do get busy.

I went here for an office lunch and we had a choice of starter and main course for £6.75. The service was very good and staff very helpful. The food was delicious and I would be happy to go back again. We had booked in advance and it was quite busy so probably best to book a table if there... More

Went as a large family group of 14 including children. Service couldn't have been better. Fast, courteous ad efficient. All food was delivered as ordered. The vegetarian choices were great with each of the 5 dishes that we ordered tasting very different. Numbers of customers seems to have dropped off recently, perhaps because its the summer holidays. The portions are... More

The lunch deal is great - starter and a main course with side for £6.95. We had vegetable pakoras to begin and then a veggie and chicken korma. The naan bread... More

I have been to the Jharna numerous times over the past 3-4 years, the welcome is always warm. The food is always super quality and hits the spot. The complementary popadoms and nightcap (if your lucky) are a very nice touch. I wouldn't go anywhere else for an indian in Belfast.

I returned for lunch as I was in the area and had a very pleasant meal indeed. In had noticed that the priced had increased slightly but at £6.95 for two decent sized portions you would be happy to pay it. On the day it wasn't too busy but as it was quite a warm day I would say that... More

Have had numerous meals in the Jharna, never disappointed. My particular favourite is the chicken dhansak, absolutely wonderful. Nice setting up above the busy Lisburn Road with a clean and comfortable interior. They do take away also!
