The Haldi promises to bring a new concept in Asian food to the district.  You’ll find the restaurant at the boundary of Pitstone and Ivinghoe.  As far as cuisine is concerned, it spans the boundary between traditional and innovative.

The Haldi offers an interesting selection of dishes and we strongly recommend its Bangladeshi fish specials.

There’s plenty of parking and the welcome was warm & inviting.  The starters came quickly and we were particularly impressed by the Haldi Spiced King Prawns and Mussels infused in a creamy butter and garlic with a hint of white wine. Delicious!For main, the Murgh Jalfrezi generated a good level of ‘Haldi heat’ but it wasn’t overpowering, accompanied by perfect special rice.  A real show-stopper was the Bengali Hilsa Kufta boneless fish special.  It was a really pleaseant, well-balanced dish beautifully presented, very much complementing the Rioja.
The Haldi’s well stocked bar offers an extensive wine range travelling through Argentina, France and Chile, backed up by some impressive champagnes.Delightful indian puddings rounded off an evening of great food, hospitality and impressive service headed by the owner Shelim and his hard-working team.

Thanks guys, we’ll be back soon.

    I have now been to the Haldi on two occasions with my family. The food is really excellent and probably the best I have had in the Tring / Berkhamsted area. The welcome is very warm and the service excellent and personal. Definitely recommended.

    Ate in for my son’s 8th birthday and they made a huge effort to make him the centre of attention and gave him a fabulous evening, including Ice Cream Birthday cake.
    Have subsequently had 2 take outs.
    Cannot fault the food.
    The welcome is always warm and friendly. Just what you want in a restaurant.
    Highly recommended.

    My family and I have eaten in on a couple of occasions and had numerous take-aways and I must say each and every time the food has been amazing and the service outstanding. I highly recommend the Haldi, fantastic!

    Just returned from a fabulous pre Christmas Sunday lunch at Haldi. What a treat! A great welcome as always and the food was superb. We are very lucky to have this restaurant practically on our doorstep.

  27. RICHARD, Dec 24, 2014 says:

    I have used the Haldi as a take-away since it opened. The food has always been first class. Tonight I had my first sit-down meal in the restaurant with my son. It is by far the best Indian restaurant I have eaten in (and I have eaten in many). The quality of the food was superb together with an efficient and friendly service. Thank you.

    Having been to most of the indian restaurants in and around Tring we thought we would try the Haldi as it had been recommended and the reviews looked favourable. We went with two other friends on Saturday night. The surroundings looked really good and the staff friendly and attentive.
    I ordered the chicken Suka as a starter and I must say it was very good, the chicken was plentiful and not dry but nice and moist and the sauce very different, good start.

    I ordered the Murg Korai as my as my main course with mushroom bhajee side dish, well this is where the disappointment settled in! The meal was cold and tasteless, no actual heat at all and no spice heat whatsoever (it shows a two spices heat on the menu). The chicken was very dry (overcooked) and the mushrooms tasted of nothing, really bland, i was shocked at I was expecting a fantastic eating experience. Lastly the beer to me tasted watered down!!

    This is the first review I have ever written on a restaurant and feel the £66.00 we paid for two meals expensive.

    Saying all this we will try it again and maybe have the starter as a main course.

    Great service, great atmosphere, great food!

  30. Trevor Smith says:

    Went for a meal this last week, my wife and I on our anniversary. This was our first visit there. It will certainly not be the last. The food was excellent, as was the service. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to any lover of good Indian food.

  31. Pauline and Laurie Lindars says:

    Brilliant food as usual, I can honestly say that all the times we have been coming we have never had a bad meal. Saying that we are going again tonight

  32. Dan hazelden says:

    First takeaway here and fantastic.

  33. Denis B, 7 Jan 2017 says:

    I’ve tried all the other Indian restaurants for miles around and this beats them all hands down!
    Moni Chingri Puri followed by Murgh Green Masala every time can’t get enough of it. Been coming here since just after it opened, we used to go all the way to High Wycombe for this quality food and service, now go no further, Pitstone the centre of Gastronomic excellance!!!!!!

    I travel all over England and always take opportunities to eat at Indian Restaurants when away from home so believe me when I say the Haldi is up there at the top of the list. Also the guys are all great, very polite, helpfull and a pleasure to chat to.
    Thanks guys for some truly memorable meals.

    Lovely atmosphere, food and service excellent. Good value for money, highly recommended!

  36. So very impressed The Haldi. I was introduced to the restaurant via friends from Pitstone. A warm welcome with an ambience to match. The service was smooth and professional and the menu offered something different from the norm. The food was superb and i will savour the evening for some time and will delighted to recommend and return soon. Thanks for a great evening.

    We had a delicious meal last night at Haldi. Service as always was fabulous, great atmosphere and while it was a full and busy night we were brilliantly looked after. We tried the Hariyali chicken for the first time, which was yummy.
    Looking forward to coming back soon. We’re so lucky to have such a great resteraunt in our village.

  40. Silva S, 20 Aug 2018 says:

    I met a friend at Haldi for lunch today. We were told that they’re having a fire safety inspection today and weren’t open for lunch. Upon hearing that we’d both travelled 30 min from opposite areas to meet up there, we were given a table by Ahmed, who put on music for us and served us with great courtesy and friendliness. Lunch was delicious and Ahmed bent over backwards to make our experience absolutely brilliant. We were so impressed that we have booked a table for another meal. Absolutely highly recommended!

  41. Gwen H, 16 Dec 2018 says:

    Went to Xmas over 60s lunch today for first time. Very impressed, staff were friendly, helpful and polite. Meal was very good. Will be going back soon.

  42. Daniel Nathan says:

    Fantastic takeaway during the lockdown. (25/4/30) Superb value; one pointer is that I can’t find any prices on the website?

    But just to say a meal for four was superb value too.

    Totally highly recommended ….now our favourite place.

    Thanks C and K, Cheddington.

  43. Maria Giddard says:

    First order placed on NYE… Risky!! But Tring lacking in a decent takeaway that delivers. Came on time, friendly service, delivered hot with a smile! You have gained a new customer this evening! Many thanks & cannot recommend highly enough, many thanks for making our lockdown NYE a success! 😀
