Myself and a few friends visited Jalfrezi after reading the great reviews on Tripadvisor whilst we were in the area visiting Alton Towers.

We booked a table in advance and the restaurant was quite busy, so it may be worth calling ahead if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night.

Our experience at this restaurant truly was first class. All of the food was an extremely high standard and the portions were more than adequate. The menu is also very extensive and you will more than likely find a dish that suits your palette!

All of us agreed that the service at this restaurant was superb. One person in particular (I assume he was the manager or owner), really made our experience that extra bit special. He talked us through the dishes in detail, listened to our requests and tailored the food accordingly. Other restaurants can learn from his level of service!

Without a doubt if I am back in the area I will be popping in for another meal. Highly recommended!

Having had heard good reviews about Jalfezi, we decided to treat ourselves to a nice sit down meal. The decor is very flash but not unattractive, but the music is very loud. There was nobody else in the restaurant and we found ourselves almost shouting to hear each other. The waiter was attentive but seemed to want to rush us to order which was strange as we were the only ones in there! On perusing the menu, we noticed that the prices for a sit down meal are almost double that of their take away menu. Never mind we thought, at those prices, it must be amazing food! Sadly, it wasn't. It was ok, no more than average, except for the onion bhaji wich was a flat and floury affair with a hint of onion. Quite possibly the most tasteless one i've had! The waiter, although friendly continued to rush us whilst making a very big and insistant fuss about us leaving him a review on trip advisor. I don't think this was exactly what he had in mind though... Jalfrezi is just average. And expensive. Trust me, there are far better Indian restaurants in Stoke than this one.

Excellent food, wonderful service. Definitely 'arrived as a stranger but left as a friend'.
Probably the best Indian food we have tasted outside of India itself.
Will definitely be back.
