“Excellent food and great service”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We've eaten at Jalsagor many times and always find superb food and service.
Although we always prebook, there is often a short wait for a table. This is especially so at weekends but it's busy every night. Surely the sign of a great restaurant.
Really good food and good size servings served by courteous and attentive staff assure you of a good meal every time.
I would definately recommend Jalsagor to anyone enjoying Indian cuisine.
Remember that it will be very busy, so if you're looking for a quiet and romantic meal, go very early in the evening or later at night to miss the bulk of the other diners.
Highly recommended.

“Satisfying food; the place could be run better”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Gastronomically, Hereford seemed like a paradox to us in our recent visit - given the renown of the cattle breed that bears its name, and given its apple cider, we would have expected it to be a foodie town. But we had hard time finding a place for dinner that excited our imagination. Eventually we settled on this Bengali restaurant on the eastern part of the city center.

We ordered two main dishes, including their signature dish; a side of vegetables, rice and naan. All dishes were tasty, portions were ample, and prices were reasonable. Tonight the place was very popular, and as the restaurant filled in, we thought, the staff became less and less able to cope with the crowd. The service, initially polite and pleasant, became harried and inattentive; we had a big time gap between being given a dessert menu and catching a waiter's attention to make an order. (The desserts were generic - we have seen exactly the same menu at another Indian restaurant in quite another town.) Similar for trying to catch someone's attention to pay the bill.

By no means an unpleasant night-out and the place "did" for us; would go back for food, but for an *early* dinner.

The waiter was very knowledgable and spent a fair time going through the menu and helping us to choose something. Food was excellent and good value. Service was outstanding.

I've been to the Jalsagor many times and have had their excellent food as a take away! The menu is rich and varied and the cooking always excellent. If you order the same dish - it arrives cooked the same as before, tastes the same and is as good as ever. However I usually order a different dish every time I go there.

The waiters are helpful, polite and efficient, the orders are right rather than almost right. The helpings are generous, tasty and hot as described or as hot as you ask for. The extras are spot on, chapattis and naan breads are very good - try the variety of filled naan instead of the plain ones. Rice is right but I usually chose breads.

I can't speak too highly about the Jalsagor - not the cheapest but not expensive - I've tried several of the other Indian restaurants and none come close to the Jalsagor.

I highly recommend the take aways - order by phone and collect if you live near, I do. If you want it delivered it arrives by taxi and usually quite quickly.

Not only do you have the excellent The Barrels opposite but don't forget The Victory just down the road. It has its own brewery and their draft beers are excellent. If you haven't seen the bar at The Victory you're missing a treat.

All this within 100 meters - Hereford is GREAT !
