Service was excellent. Chicken jalfrezi was perfect. Garlic naan was light and tasty. Had some of my other half's fish pakora which was super good. Will definitely come back for anniversary dinner.

Chose KoolBa when up visiting family. Booked online, table was ready and service was great. Food amazing, everyone was happy and we even got an answer as to why they have chickens on the window (ask?). Will return for sure.

Would highly recommend this restaurant. The food was so full of flavour and didn’t leave us feeling bloated. Staff are so polite and knowledgeable. Wish we lived closer to be able to visit regularly.

Although there was no vegan option listed in the menu, the waiter assured me they could veganise several dishes. The two carnivores in our group were very happy with their very rich looking meals. The two vegan meals, although supposedly different, were in fact identical,...More
