My partner and I ordered two starters - Vegetable pakoras and Onion Bhajis, both served with tamarind sauce. 4 portions of each, looked and tasted average, were very filling. Sauce was spicy but nice, would have liked a yoghurt sauce with the bhajis as they were spicy. For mains we ordered saffron rice, Shahi Paneer (vegetarian), Chicken Korma and a buttered naan. Both curries were absolutely superb - chicken was tender, sauce was perfect. The Shahi Paneer was outstanding - smooth and spiced, with large chunks tasty of paneer (home made we were told). The saffron rice was different but nice, although it did have whole cloves in it which were not so tasty. Large portions left no room for dessert, even though they sounded interesting.

We were seated quickly, waiting staff were attentive. Drinks arrived punctually, as did our food. Staff spent a bit of time talking and laughing with the owner which I dislike. There was probably one staff member to many. They need to polish their wine glasses and reccomend dishes/wines to customers

The restaurant is quite small, initially we were seated at the front section where there were other full tables of people but were moved to another table which was much better and less congested. Decor was modern - a change from some 'tacky' indian places we have been to. Lighting was great.

We had a lovely experience at Harvest of India, we did not book - just did a 'walk by' as we often do down O'Connell Street. Main selling point was the large selection of vegetarian dishes all sounded yummy. The menu was displayed out the front which was helpful. All dishes were marked as mild, medium or hot which was also helpful. Nice decor, friendly staff and good portion sizes - we will definately be back to try a banquet! Would reccomend this restaurant to other diners.
