Delivery driver tried to charge me for delivery when I live under 3 miles away. When I disagreed and showed him on Google maps, he argued with me. Eventually he backed down. When I phoned the restaurant to complain I was called a 'bad customer anyway'. Unbelievable!!!! Whatever happened to 'the customer is always right'?? Food was actually quite good... More

After trying 3 other Indian places in Harpenden and being told they didn't have high chairs this place was a welcome change! The food was absolutely perfect, but ask for the butter chicken without broad beans. (Unless you love large beans in your curry!) Appetizers came quickly and were delicious. Each dish had a distinct and different flavour. Mains were... More

I've had a number of curries from Cinnamon and have yet to be disappointed. I'm always warmly greeted on arrival and my order taken promptly. The food is delicious, especially the super hot chicken curry dish and the naan bread is so tasty. A firm favourite!

We were warmly welcomed, offered drinks and given menus. Food ordered we were left alone. Food arrived and was served, almost slung on the table by a surely waiter. Not the best Indian food Ive ever had, but enjoyable venue

We booked as a group of 10. Arrived at 7.15 and it took 30 mins to receive our drinks after which we placed orders. Nearly an hour later we started our meal. VERY long waits at every stage. I dread to think what time the two groups who arrived after us must have eaten. Can't help but feel the menu... More

We literally just had a takeaway delivered! We usually use Massalla village who are great, friendly and reasonable ! My husband ordered the food, the person taking the order was rude, he wouldn't tell us the cost of the food and also said we had to pay cash!! When the food arrived (cold) we had our £41.50 ready which we... More

Had a really delicious meal here. A lovely restaurant and nicely decorated. I usually eat Indian food under duress, but have to admit I would look forward to eating here again.

My quest to find the best curry house in Hertfordshire continues. I have avoided going to Cinnamon for the last 4 years out of principal After living in Tooting for 10 years I know that good curry doesn't have to cost the world. As it is Cafe Jeera (probably the best curry house in Harpenden) has just bumped up its... More

This is probably the best Indian in Harpenden . The food is so fresh you can tell the difference in quality compared to other Indian R. Service is first class, never rushed and you can park opposite in the car park - what a bonus!!!

We had what was supposed to be a five course banquet for £15.95. There were at least three courses, but I don't think I could identify five. The main course, which included many different dishes, as we were a large party, I would describe as monotonous. Many of the dishes tasted and looked much the same - just chicken or... More
