The frontage of Little India, Victoria St, Newton Stewart, may not grab you (we hummed and aa-ed before taking the plunge) and though the interior is neat, clean and comfortable, the Taj Mahal it aint. But, if you have a palate for the most tasty of Indian flavours, - good, wholesome fresh ingredients, suffused with fresh herbs and spices, then you are passing up a truly rare cuisine experience.
Within you will find no commercially manufactured chicken nuggets floating in suspiciously startling red or unbelievably yellow sauces, but dishes of exceptional flavour, prepared by a master in their craft. Even the rice had a distinctive individuality, and the Nans - clearly made there and then - were as light as a feather. And the price? Around £25 for courtesy popadums and pickles, two main meals with special rices and nan bread.
The boys who opened this exceptional treasure came down from Glasgow to fill a gap in the market, and their delight in your delight is evident. Of the dishes we had on the evening every one was a jewel (We can highly recommend the King Prawn Tikka Lahori saag and my own favourite was the Peri Peri Massala). Be aware, they do not have a license, but will happy open and provide glasses for a BYOB, conveniently available from the CO-Op a couple of doors down the street. Naturally, they also run a thriving Take-Away Service.
We will be back.
