The prospect of being able to walk to a decent riverside restaurant from home gave me high hopes that at least Henley could now boast a good modern Indian, if little else. Refreshing sassy place for a town so steeped in tradition. Spice Merchant (as Square Meal describes) in its early days was much better than the type of place that doles out dishes of luminously oily curry.
Following many impressive meals bordering on exotic, we invited friends along. Having highly recommended it, we were dismayed to be presented with embarrassingly measly offerings, tough meat which either hadn’t been marinated properly or cooked slowly enough. They had retreated from big portions to strict rations, even the rice.
The last straw was a takeaway, so bad that I daren’t wonder what it comprised. I sent feedback – obviously starting with praise – to which I never had a response; most recently I got an e-mail marketing their restaurant – needless to say I have chosen to unsubscribe.
