  • review rating 5  My wife booked a table here to celebrate my birthday whilst we were staying in Waltham abbey . It was quite possibly one of the best Indian meals I've ever had.We had light, crispy poppadoms with a tray of dips to munch on before we ordered lamb samosas and the kebab platter to start. Everything was delicious and fresh. This was followed by chicken jalfrezi and haryali chicken tikka for mains. All the dishes were super tasty and had just the right level of spice. Nothing was greasy and everything was well proportioned. The staff were really attentive and couldn't have done enough for us. As a birthday treat they also brought out some ice cream and a complimentary shot to wash it down with! The experience was extra special when we saw our favourite bottle of wine on the drinks menu! I'd definitely call this a hidden gem and would recommend it to anyone! It's quite small, so if you're planning on going I'd recommend booking beforehand. It was a very popular, busy place where you can dine in or order it to take away.
