Raising the bar for Indian cuisine in North London, Hazara provides a fine dining experience, the perfect location for celebrating a special occasion or for those times when a takeaway on the couch just won’t cut it. Located on Belsize Lane, a short walk from Belsize Park underground station, Hazara draws in even the most discerning of curry connoisseurs from all over the city with its gourmet Indian cuisine and elegant setting. At Hampstead’s Hazara, the chef’s take time-honoured recipes and give them a new, creative and refined twist, with options ranging from nariyal malai scallops (pan-seared dill and coconut milk soaked scallops served with a sundried tomato and mango relish) for starters, and mains like the dudhiya batair (quail cooked in a creamy sauce) and the tandoori duck prepared with caraway seeds, cloves and cardamon).

The food was excellent, the service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant, in all evening was a very good experience. Would recommend this restaurant..
Why did we not discover this place before? Amazing Indian food, but not the generic menu - lots of sensational dishes that were completely new to us. The tandoori broccoli and the grilled long aubergine were highlights. Biryani also not to be missed. Good service too, plus an unexpectedly good wine list. Before we left we were already planning our next visit.
Great restaurant with fine Indian food with a proper kick. We really enjoyed our meal there and cannot wait to go again. A real treat.
Great and prompt service, very friendly and nice atmosphere. We ordered four different curries and one daal and every dish was delicious! We'll be back soon!
We were royally treated at the Hazara last night. Our friends were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary, and the restaurant was very thoughtful in providing us with a romantic table set with red roses, and even produced a lovely cake at the end of our meal. The meal itself was delicious - genuine Indian cuisine, beautifully cooked and tastefully presented. The staff were very courteous and helpful; and we enjoyed talking to the chef, who took the time to come and chat to us. We much enjoyed our evening there.
Hazara has been our HQ for a while now. We love the food and super friendly staff! They always make the extra effort to make us feel welcome. We have now tried many dishes and are never disappointed. thank you Hazara!
Excellent food, excellent service, nice atmosphere, very reasonable prices. We told the waiter that the food was better than any Indian food we have eaten in Boston and the chef came to thank us. An excellent experience all around.
Food was absolutely fantastic. I was sitting on the fence before I got there but the food was top draw. The lady serving us was friendly, gave us all the time in the world to order. Polite. 10/10
Each dish tastes different and they are all pretty delicious. Food feels fresh. Service polite and affable. Some starters were too small to share. Do not have other drinks than beer or wine - they are on offer but have no flair or volume.
I had the dal mahkani and the samosa chaat, both delicious. The restaurant was warm and friendy. The only thing is I wish they were a little more on top of refilling water -- you'd think they be better about that given how much spicy food they serve.
