I visited lazaat based on a few "recommendations". What can I say? There were a choice of about 9 or 10 main meals, with no descriptions (note that the price was of the higher end of curries so expected good quality and with the lack of choice it would make you think that all food is cooked to order). so I asked the waiter for a description of one curry called "mogli chicken curry". I was informed that it was "sweet and nutty". Being someone who usually goes for creamy sweet curries I expected it to be similar to a korma. When the food arrived I saw that it was a particularly spicy tomato based curry with chillies in it; no hint of sweetness, nuttiness or creaminess. I called over the waiter and explained that it was none of what he described and to that end wanted to choose something else. The waiter was very polite and said I could swap it to another dish of my choice with no extra cost. I decided to order a lamb korma because I figured that this would be a safe bet. After 20 minutes had passed and my dad and boyfriend had already finished their meal, the lamb korma arrived. The meat in the korma was literally unidentifiable. It had a hint of lamb taste but that's where it ended. The meat was tough and bet black; no pinkness or tenderness to be seen in the meat. It had the texture and colour of charcoal. Clearly the meat had been cooked, frozen, microwaved and thrown into a curry again and just served. I called over the waiter and politely asked him to try some or ask the chef to try some them come back to me to discuss it. The waiter and back two minutes after and said that the chef said that the food was perfectly fine and that's how he always did it. The fact that the chef didn't come out to talk to us himself and very arrogantly denied there was a problem with the meat or failing to offer a solution was enough for me to ask for the bill. I forgot to mention that my dad ordered a chicken biryani and this was bland, watery and had puff pastry on top (authentic-NO) .I must stress that the two waiters (lee and josh I think their names were) were very attentive and they are a credit to the restaurant. They seemed to be doing the dirty work of the chef sadly. Shame about the food. I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody.
