Reviewed August 4, 2013

We stayed here before flying out on holiday. The food was really excellent and the service was great. This place is well worth a visit.

“Excellent food -- very very tasty”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

I am a regular customer of Pap J's - have been for many years now, both the old restaurant on Alma St and the new one on Wellington St. We go there regularly with a group of friends or get a takeout. The food is always absolutely fabulous. We're all Vegetarians and Vegans so I can't comment on the meat dishes, but the Vegetarian dishes are gorgeous. Our fav's are the Paneer Mongolian, Veg Manchurian dry and Makhani Daal

“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

This is something very different and out of the ordinary, as Indian restaurants go, the food is second to none, the atmosphere is very relaxed, service is efficient. Just remember to book as it is very popular.

“I can't understand why this place has such good reviews!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Only been once and will never go again! The food was terrible - the worst Indian food I have ever tasted! We went in a large group - service was ridiculously slow and when the food came it was basically all the same. I think they had one pot of sauce and tried to pass it off as everything on the menu. It was truly disgusting!

“Brilliant service and Superb food”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Visited last night after reading on this website it was no . 1 in Luton. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and asked for a table without a reservation . we arrived at 7.45 and were seated and had our food by 8. We had the king platter which was divine . Overall a fabulous experience.
