Description: Situated on Cheshunt’s busy high street, De Ja Vu brings the best of exotic Indian cuisine to the depths of Hertfordshire. The bright, modern interior is accented in shades of blue and features arty prints on the walls and funky electric blue lights that look great after dark. The flawless service and laid-back vibe have made it a firm favourite with the locals, who flock here for midweek meals, weekend blow-outs and early evening dinners when the set menu offers excellent value for money. The a la carte menu features sizzling tandoori dishes; classic curries; and Chef’s Specials including South Indian garlic chicken with fiery green chillies and De Ja Vu’s signature Gosht Tawali – marinated lamb cooked with peppers and fenugreek.

“Delightfully surprised at the upscale service and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

We were very glad to have booked a table as it soon filled up. We realised quickly why a booking was essential, the food and service was superb! We were seated immediately at our table and were given drinks and poppadoms within minutes of sitting down. As we were happily munching, we were given an extensive and enticing appetizers and mains menu to peruse at our leisure. Even though we only ordered mains were each given a lovely starter with assorted sauces. Already thoroughly impressed we received our mains where the chefs selections were decadent and the regular menu staples were above and beyond the expected quality. Plates, cutlery, and drinks were quickly and efficiently cleared away and replenished without us really realising. The atmosphere was slightly upscale but not overwhelming and inaccessible and it made for a very enjoyable treat. The quality, along with the reasonable prices, make this restaurant well worth any excursion. We will highly recommend this place to everyone!

“No Starters and go home”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Arrived at 7.45 pm and order taken about 8.15 pm. We asked where the starters were several times. Still no starters by 10 pm so we asked yet again and we were ignored, Eventually some of the starters came out, but they were cold and dried out - probably sitting around for ages. I'm not sure that is too healthy.

We complained about the quality of the food, service and the missing starters; all to no avail. We were then effectively asked to leave. They said we should leave and not pay the bill for starters and drinks.

All around us there were other tables erupting with anger because of the wait and I cant say that I blame them.

Don't go there unless you have plenty of time and a full belly!

“3 bits of chicken”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

went in for a takeway and when İ got home couldnt believe it. 3 tiny bites of chicken in a pot of sauce and the other dish was a soggy garlic dish.
the restaurant is just being expanded but on this experience would give it a wide berth
