My first experience was ordering a takeaway by actually visiting the restaurant. The staff are friendly and courteous and asked me to take a seat whilst looking through the takeaway menu; I was even asked if I'd like to purchase a drink whilst I waited, which was a nice touch, but may have been restaurant prices so I declined. Having grown up eating curries, as I have Indian heritage, I was looking forward to trying something new and hopefully exciting. The menu is comprehensive with your standard British curries, but some exciting sounding specials, so plenty dishes to choose from. One thing that struck me straight away though was how expensive the meals are compared to the average local curry house; starters £4 to £11, main meals £9, £10+, which do include rice and a (1) popodom; these are city prices! I chose a chicken tikka Rogan Josh and a garlic naan. It came along quickly, which always sets alarm bells ringing; is the food cooked well and what shortcuts are they taking? The aroma when plating up at home was wonderful, the rice lightly spiced, but so much more than the so called pilau rice you get in most takeaways, reminded me of my father's rice. The chicken tikka was definitely tikka'd it looked the part and the sauce was rich and thick, not full of oil. So initially very impressive to look at. The taste of the curry sauce and chicken was also as impressive, great textures and flavours; probably one of the better Rogan Josh I've had, so the chef knows how to cook. Yet the difference is always in the detail and I was disappointed to a degree with the rice, which tasted old rather than freshly cooked and the naan which was surely microwaved to heat it up. The diners sitting in seemed to have fresh naans, but mine was dry and chewy. I expected better. I would have rather waited another 10 mins for better rice and a fresh naan. At these prices it shouldn't leave you disappointed and this meal did. Would I go back, yes, to try again, but I'd book a table.
