My wife and I live locally so decided to try out the latest new restaurant in our little area, and I'm very glad we did! It was excellent Asian food, Pakistani to be precise, and everything was just a little bit different from your run of the mill Indian/Bangladeshi/Pakistani restaurant.
The popadoms were prepared and presented in a way I've never seen before and were non-greasy and delicately flavoured. My wife's onion bhaji was served differently to any I'd seen before and she rated them highly, and my seekh kebab starter from the grill menu was nice and juicy and well seasoned.
My chicken biryani was unlike any I'd tried before in the way that it was layered, and was delicious. My wife's tikka masala was very different to any masala we've had before, it wasn't the usual bright red colour and didn't have the same nutty flavour of your typical masala, but it tasted excellent all the same. The fact that we were able to specify exactly what level of spice we desired due to the dishes being prepared freshly to order was a massive bonus, and is definitely reassuring in that you know the food hasn't been prepared hours in advance and is just sat there in a pot all evening waiting to be ladled out, as I suspect it is in some places.
The decor was nice and colourful, and obviously new and clean, so that gets a thumbs up. And the serving staff were excellent and extremely helpful. My wife and I seldom drink so the alcohol restrictions weren't an issue for us, and I admire the owners' having the courage of their convictions in sticking by their Muslim faith/principles.
Finally, the prices and value for money were excellent considering the freshness and tastiness of the food, the hearty portion sizes, and the all round pleasurable dining experience. We'll definitely be going back and would recommend it to any fans of high quality Asian cuisine.
