Fair quality evening meal enjoyed with my friend, not very spiced and somewhat lacking the stunning feeling of better establishments. Generally clean and well presented but the carpet is in a very sad state in need of a heavy steam clean. Very pleasant and attentive staff.

Visited recently and was left somewhat disappointed. The service was good but I found the food to be quite average which considering the cost of the food there was a big let-down. However, what really surprised me was the physical condition of the restaurant. It looks quite run-down with damp patches on the walls, worn-out furniture and dirty carpets. It... More

40 of us went to a fund raising evening held at this restaurant. It was excellent. The staff were most friendly and welcoming, and very helpful. The choice of food was very good. There was plenty and it is probably the best Indian food I have experienced. Also, the staff were very accommodating when a couple of diners needed non-oily... More

Lovely night, polite , friendly and attentive staff, great food beautifully present. Everyone was pleased with their choices and the bill didn't hurt too much either. My head in the morning on the other hand.....

Very friendly and polite staff welcomed us on a busy Friday evening. The onion bhaji starters were fabulous and very large so we had this as a shared starter. I then chose from the specials menu and loved the green mossala. It was fabulous and the chilliest left a nice warm feeling in your mouth. I took home the leftovers... More

A charity night in aid of Keech hospice. Great food and traditional dancing. A sell out and celebrity guests in attendance. This is a gem in Harpenden and the ice cold beer helped. Gluten free menu as well as all the traditional Indian favorites. .

Having read some excellent reviews some we decided to book a table. The restaurant is well appointed and the staff were friendly. However, the meal was enjoyable but I was left a little disappointed; the rice was slightly over cooked and my chicken was dry and lacked the taste that I was expecting it to have. Other members of our... More

This restaurant has become the venue for four old friends to meet up four times a year. It has to be special because we have know each other for nearly 40 years and nowhere else will do. The Café Jeera is the perfect place. The food is nothing short of excellent and the welcome and service second to none. We... More

We only ever order curry from Cafe Jeera! They won us over with their fantastic selection of vegetarian options and generous portions of paneer, rather than a few measly pieces. Service and delivery is always on point. Best curry place in Harpenden for sure!
