We last ate here with friends. It is a large, popular place and the car park is nowhere near large enough; there is often congestion but they have a member of staff on car park duty to find you a space. There is an extensive menu and it is possible to have the main courses with paneer cheese as a... More

Excellent as always. If you don't mind paying that little bit extra then this is the resturant to go to. From Indian food newbies to veteran curry eaters there will be an option for. Plus the staff are very knowledgeable about what is in the dishes Food is not oily. Service is always very good.

Had heard a lot about this restaurant and to be honest I thought why drive 30 minutes + to go to Indian restaurant when there were several where we were staying in the UK. Still, our UK hosts seemed very insistent so we went along. From the moment you arrive the service is outstanding. You are greeted at the door... More

K2 is a well run restaurant, with an excellent selection of courses. The food is superb. The service is efficient, and the atmosphere warm. The pause between course service was just right [not hurried or slow].

We are Indian foodies and k2 is excellent! Fresh, beautifully cooked, lovely presentation. By far the best Indian in the price range. We have been to Michelin star Indian restaurants and believe the food and service here is equal if not a little better as more honest in terms of price v quality. We will be back again and again....

Eaten here for many many years always enjoyable, although the staff can be a little to "familiar" in that they drop there standards at times, which upsets the better half lol! But other than that I'd be very hard pressed to find fault.

My second time here. Last time we had a really very bad experience. This time, better but still the service is poor and inattentive. We were seated promptly in a corner of the conservatory. However it was very overheated. Orders taken quite promptly. Asked for a bottle of water which came with not enough glasses. I had to ask 3... More

As main dish I had lamb Rohan gisht with rice... More

Uniquely styled, Hemel Hempstead’s K2 Balti House is situated on Two Waters Road, close to the banks of the River Gade, and between the very centre of Hemel Hempstead and the smaller area of Kings Langley. You won’t miss the restaurant - an imposing white painted building with its pillared entrance and statement blue neon exterior lighting. It has an eye-catching design with a very modern style, which continues on into the Restaurant itself, where comfort meets chic in the most dynamic of ways. Superb views out over pretty countryside scenery are enjoyed in the Conservatory area, while outdoor decking and Restaurant Terraces provide lovely "al fresco" dining away from the hubbub of the town centre. Service is extremely personable here at K2, with staff all trained to a very high standard, providing a truly professional but welcoming service.
