Indian
A new Upmarket Indian Restaurant just opened in Fashionable Belsize Lane. Dishes are cooked with care and to perfection by Head Chef who hails from the Taj Group in India and has worked for a Michelin Star Indian Restaurant. Healthy cooked techniques are employed as well as separation of all White fish, seafood, lamb, chicken and vegetables with individual labelling and storage. Already becoming a favourite with all the Belsize Village locals this restaurant has something for every palate with a number of regional dishes from Punjab in the North to Kerala and Tamil Nadu in the South, with so many regional dishes on offer, we are sure you will find your taste. Serving White fish ranging from Black Cod, Halibut, Tilapia and Sebass this restaurant really is catering for patrons from a varied number of backgrounds with an extensive vegetarian menu as well as Lamb and Chicken dishes. If you fancy just drink why not relax with a cocktail at the bar or with a refreshing Pint of Cobra.

Absolutely fantastic food. Service could be improved by taking drinks order on arrival and not waiting til we had to call staff over to order food

Very disappointing about Covid Social distancing - I had to demand that other diners were not placed close to us. The tables were far too close together and there didn’t seem to be enough awareness of what was necessary to ensure safe dining

The unique taste of Hazara is always a culinary treat and tonight was no exception! The Kerala fish curry was amazing, the tamarind stands out in the sauce.

First time visit here while staying at the Premier Inn overnight down the road Hampstead Heath. Read reviews on Trip Advisor and everyone raving about it so had to try. Was not disapointted at all, best curry had in my life - yes that good! Ordered starter chicken tikka trio and popadoms and was awesome.. chicken so nice and tender. Main course ordered their special dish which was so tasty and flavorsome.. no colurings or sugar added and tastes so fresh... 10/10! Service was very welcoming too and nothing too much when asked for. We even spoke with the owner towards the end of our meal who is also the chef and he was so nice. Must visit when in the area.. we will be back again for sure ... amazing! :-)

The food in this restaurant is delicious. Really good regional Indian food, carefully cooked and presented. The service is very good. It is ordinarily good value but with the Eat out to help out discount, the value was sensational. I highly recommend.

seated in the corridor for the toilet, yes my chair was the actual corridor, not on the side, in the middle. tried to change our seats to be not in the toilet, and they said no. Suppose some other 2 seater group requested the only table that was not in the corridor. awful service, awful attitude. no respect.

Sublime food, beautifully prepared and presented.
Slightly odd service. Orders taken but sighed at when asking for a pause between courses. Not an issue and shrugged it off, but unexpected and unwarranted.

Good Indian meal in a nice setting. We really enjoyed both the konkan chicken curry and curried lamb shank we had for mains and the gulab jamun desert. Plenty of option on the menu, including vegetarian dishes. We ate here on a Saturday evening and would definitely recommend booking as they were turning people away.

To be honest the food was ok bearing in mind where the location of the restaurant is I do think they are missing a trick. Food has the capability of being at Trishna standard but let's itself down by serving lamb chops that were fatty and overdone-I was wondering what was French trim about the chops but anyway clearly I have been spoiled.
The chicken curry was nice but the star dish for me was the aubergine-not sure the £80 bill justifies the aubergine. Oh and how can an Indian restaurant not have decent raita?
Service was very disappointing not very engaging bearing in mind 4 waiters and restaurant half full??? Sorry but won't be going back.

Great food but service was a bit slow and some staff were quite miserable! Smile! Accommated gluten free requests well. Ambience lets it down quite a bit as it was quite cold- please turn the heating up. Also lighting not quite right so isn't a warm, cosy atmosphere.

The quality of food was fine but the service was extremely slow. Although the restaurant was full and very busy with the take-out orders, the staff were super friendly and still smiling! However we had to wait for our main meals to arrive for about 1:20 hrs. Obviously the kitchen could not cope with a full house!

We were the only diners (end of half term probably why) hence lower score for ambience. Staff outnumbered us so but awkward in a space this size.

Hazara is an old favourite of ours and the food is outstanding - only criticism would be that they should advise at order stage the dishes that are light on sauce. Rice was too dry to eat with the dishes we ordered and a side veg would have been better. I actually prefer Hazara because there are dishes like that so it only needs explanation not changing.

Smoked monkfish is a most have!
