Very friendly and polite staff welcomed us on a busy Friday evening. The onion bhaji starters were fabulous and very large so we had this as a shared starter. I then chose from the specials menu and loved the green mossala. It was fabulous and the chilliest left a nice warm feeling in your mouth. I took home the leftovers... More

A charity night in aid of Keech hospice. Great food and traditional dancing. A sell out and celebrity guests in attendance. This is a gem in Harpenden and the ice cold beer helped. Gluten free menu as well as all the traditional Indian favorites. .

Having read some excellent reviews some we decided to book a table. The restaurant is well appointed and the staff were friendly. However, the meal was enjoyable but I was left a little disappointed; the rice was slightly over cooked and my chicken was dry and lacked the taste that I was expecting it to have. Other members of our... More

This restaurant has become the venue for four old friends to meet up four times a year. It has to be special because we have know each other for nearly 40 years and nowhere else will do. The Café Jeera is the perfect place. The food is nothing short of excellent and the welcome and service second to none. We... More

We only ever order curry from Cafe Jeera! They won us over with their fantastic selection of vegetarian options and generous portions of paneer, rather than a few measly pieces. Service and delivery is always on point. Best curry place in Harpenden for sure!

Visited with a party of 10 friends. Really excellent experience as previously. For main I had Sizzling Murg, very tasty. The cost, including pappadoms, main, side, naan, rice, 2 Cobras, coffee, tip, £30 per head. The service was efficient and friendly. The best Indian restaurant I have visited in Harpenden. This restaurant is very popular and it is advisable to... More

Visited here without booking but received a warm welcome and didn't have to wait for a table. The staff were brilliant and very attentive but not intrusive which was lovely. The food arrived in good time and was absolutely delicious. Would definitely highly recommend and will be returning myself.

We have been going to Jeera since it opened many years ago and keep going back! We had a takeaway and went there to eat recently, and it's still as good as ever. We have occasionally tried others, but haven't found anywhere as good locally.

Really enjoyable evening with a party of 15. As on previous visits the food was excellent and probably the best Indian food in Harpenden. Very popular restaurant and so you need to book at potentially busy times when it tends to be quite noisy. The service is also excellent.

Probably the best Indian restaurant in the area if you are eating in the restaurant...... but I find that ordering a take away is never as good .... not only are some items not always hot some items are not delivered correctly and on some cases missed of the order completely ... this has happened on a number of occasions...
