We got lost, arrived late but they he staff were extremely helpful.
We asked for recommendations from the menu and every dish was delicious.
Well spiced and the lamb and chicken were so tender.
Looking forward to to trying more dishes in the future.

Booked this for my fiancé’s birthday and it did not disappoint! Food was so yummy and service was quick. All of the waiters were lovely and chatty, highly recommend this restaurant. The atmosphere was very romantic with dimmer lighting and candle lit tables, will be returning!

Great service on a very busy Saturday night. All the dishes we ordered were excellent. I ordered two dishes I hadn’t tried before and was certainly not disappointed. The paprika chicken tikka was lovely and charred on the outside and succulent on the inside. Definitely the best Indian in Berkhamsted.

Went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. Having been asked when booking if we were celebrating a special occasion I was disappointed nothing was even mentioned. Then one of our starters wasn't available however instead of asking if we wanted something different they just brought the other starter and main meals out together. Yes most of the food was very good except the Nan breads which were not great but the service was terrible and I wouldn't go back again as I don't live in Berkhamstead.

Service efficient but not especially warm. Portions huge, I left some and I rarely do that. Drinks expensive £6.50 for a pint bottle of Magners Cider.
I would return. Nice atmosphere and for a party of 7 the circular tables were the perfect size for all to converse.

Food took a long time to come to our table even for a busy Saturday night but when it did it was amazing. Only other point is that the lighting was very low.

Booked an early table for 7.15, & got to very busy bar with the news to buy a (very expensive) drink while we wait for the table (no apology) Finally got seated at 7.50 & received the food just after 9. No apology, very disinterested service & seated in a walkway that kept attracting a knock as they went past. Average but very expensive food too, Toilet’s flooded on floor. Won’t be back
