Have been to The Jharna many times and. I am never disappointed. Food tastes incredibly fresh. The biryani is fantastic. All meals are reasonably priced. This is definitely my favourite Indian restaurant. Highly recommended

I have been a regular customer of The Jharna for over 10 years now. Their high quality of food and standards of service never change. When I am travelling I really struggle to find anywhere that matches their amazing taste of food. I have tried...More
