“Good food”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Nice decor and friendly staff, food was excellent and very authentic. Good value for money. The restaurant is right at the opposite end of where your sat nav will take you so keep walking.

“Very fresh, tasty food”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Typically, many Indian restaurants can involve greasy, overseasoned food. The food at the Darjeeling tasted very fresh, with large portions, and a great variation of dishes on the menu. Pricey compared to other local Indians, such as the Raj Vujon, but the food is definately one step ahead- it just depends how discerning you are regarding your Indian cuisine. Atmosphere and service was only average, could do with being a bit closer to the town centre.

“Found by chance”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We found this jewel of a restaurant purely by chance. Kids dropped off at the cinema and no point driving home (we dont live in Huntingdon thank god.......what a [--] hole!)
After several minutes wandering around the town centre we were starting to think that nobody ate out in Huntingdon when an aroma hit us both at the same time.
The restaurant didnt look much from the outside but the inside was much better.
A roomy table for two was offered to us and drinks ordered.
The menu is varied with all the usual dishes you would expect in your local Indian.
The food did not disappoint.........excellent, A+, fantastic!
Service good and price reasonable.
All in all a great find and we'll be back :)

“Rude staff. Poor food”
Reviewed June 27, 2012 via mobile

Went here a while ago, and seemed ok when first seated.
Starters-average
Main course- cream was clearly out of date and off

Co
Planned to the manager, and he threatened to call the police. Still refused to pay and tried to intimidate with bringing extra staff to the table including chef's!
Didn't care and still refused to pay for very low quality food.

Avoid of you want good food with good customer service.
If you like low grade meals, with even lower grade service this would've perfect for you.

Planet Spice in Godmanchester is 100000x better.

“Great Food.”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

We visited The Darjeeling, for the first time yesterday and were thoroughly impressed. The service can not be faulted and the dishes were very tasty, one we tried was a Bangladesh dish Beef Nehari, the beef was just so tender and the flavours of the herbs and spices mmmm.......we can not wait to return.
