I had a hearty meal, for which I paid almost £100 for myself only !
Following comments :
Onion Bhaji – Very poor. I like my bhajis “fluffed-up”. Crispy on the outside & soft & voluminous inside. This one was compressed & hard. Very small portion
Cheese Naan – Not cheesy at all. Not even warm & small portions again.
Raita – Excellent. Probably the best I've tasted.
Vindaloo side sauce – Not spicy at all. Tepid & uninspiring.
Main Meal :
NZ bottle of Pinot Noir – Disappointing. Overly acidic, too fruity & did not “open-up” as a Pinot Noir should. Cost almost £40 inc. service charge.
King Prawn curry – 4 prawns served in (again) a tepid & uninspired sauce.
Mushroom pilau rice – small portion & quit heavy, sticky & starchy.
Mushroom bhaji – variety of mushrooms & quite good.
Saag bhaji – Heavy, tasteless & uninspired.
So, there you go. I am amazed at how divergent my experience was versus the hype. Don't believe the hype !This was a mediocre/nothing-special Indian (5 points i.e. would come again, if I could find nothing better) but so grossly over-priced (& over-hyped) that I have to mark it down to only 2 points only (i.e. avoid).
Want a superlative curry ? Try Rajasthan II in the City. No rave reviews by the critics, but always full of punters (although, not cheap either, but absolutely worth it).
