We wanted a pre show meal, and I have often walked past this restaurant and though it smells so good, I'll have to try it one day, but in St Albans there are so many to choose from I never remember to give it a try. Well not anymore, possibly the best Indian meal I've had ever. All the old... More

Excellent service, very attentive staff. We had poppadoms to start with onion barges. Then four different curries, they were a good size portion so we shared rice and nan breads between two. Paid £84 for four with shared starters mains and a few drinks. Well worth it.

Five of us turned up without a booking on a Friday evening. The restaurant was busy, but the attentive staff accommodated us without issue. Service was efficient but not in your face. The food was excellent. Will return next time we are in town.

We eat Indian quite a lot and the food is always superb here or as a takeaway. Yes, the food takes some time to arrive if you compare to e.g. McDonalds but we do that weird thing of talking to each other while waiting. By now we have tried a lot on their menu and have not yet come ax... More

Looked forward to eating here due to rave reviews but was disappointed. Waited an age to get served... but hey, it'll be worth the wait I thought. Huge menu, with lots of dishes I hadn't tried before. No, not really. Maybe I just got unlucky with what I ordered. Prawn Starter was bland. Lamb dish had two solid lumps of... More

Very much enjoyed Saturday lunch here on a short break in St Albans. We were the only customers, although one person arrived just before the restaurant closed at 2.30 pm, and was turned away. The quality of the cooking was very high, and the interior of the restaurant was elegant. Service was good. Would return if in St Albans again.

We went with friends on a Saturday night. The food was good but not amazing. Service was so so, as was price. Wouldn't rave.

Went her as a party of 6 one Saturday night. The restaurant was busy but this didn't hold up service. Apart from popadoms we only had main courses with sided and naan bread plus 3 of us had beers. So the price of £68 for two before service is a little expensive for Indian. That said portion sizes were good... More

cant really complain about the food quality. Just the portion size- only 5 pieces of chicken, and the nan was a bit flat and crispy. My two fav things. totally dead atmosphere too. But everyone enjoyed the food.
