My friend and I called in here this evening after it was recommended by another friend. Monsoon Kitchen is beautifully decorated and we were greeted warmly. We were given a menu which is not the usual extensive range of standard curries, but instead, a select number of traditional, home style dishes. No alcohol is served which was not a problem for my non-drinking friend and myself and we had the mango lassi - absolutely delicious. We chose the Lamb Samosa and Chicken Tikka for starters - Samosas were delicious, in fact so delicious I was have liked them as giant sized! Next we had Chicken Tikka as a main course and a Desi Handi and Pilau Rice. This was the best rice and the best curry we have ever tried - buttery, spicy and flavoursome. The portions were good too. The Chicken Tikka was not the usual red coloured chicken but delicate and served with some lovely little pots of sauce. The food was beautifully presented and the attention to detail with the dishes, spoons and goblets was lovely.
We had a lovely chat with the chef who told us about the ethos behind the restaurant - home cooked food, served in a safe, family orientated environment. We will certainly be back! My only grumble was that we a little cold, probably because we were near the door and it was a cold night but other than that we had some of the best food in a long time!
