As a visitor to Long Eaton and staying in a local hotel, I decided last Sunday night to give the hotel food a miss and treat myself to my favourite meal, an Indian. Born and bred in one of the UK's leading curry cities - Glasgow, and having been introduced to quality Indian cuisine somewhere around the age of 7,( I am now 51 OMG!!) I have had many experiences over the years, most of them favourable.
With slight hesitancy and intrepidation, I did what you are probably doing now, taking a look at reviews then trying to make my mind up,....... LOOK NO FURTHER!!!!
Whilst I cannot draw a comparisin to the other restaurants as I obviously havent been to them, I can honestly say that the Al Naseeb was absolutely outstanding in every aspect. Very rarely if ever, I would honestly tick every box with 10 out of 10.
From the initial warm, friendly welcome, I was shown to my table in sumptious surroundings, clearly no expense spared in the decor, fittings, furnishings and marble bar and open kitchen areas.
Prompt service delivered complimentary poppadoms and a delicious chutney and spice onions tray. I ordered my old favourite a chicken tikka, the presentation of which was so overwhelming, it was a shame to spoil, however spoil and demolish I did!!! Chicken tikka, succulent and cooked to perfection accompanied by a keema nan and washed down with a couple of bottles of still water all with change out of £20!!!
My work is now taking me back to Glasgow and unfortunately wont get the opportunity to become a regular here however to all the lucky residents of Long Eaton if you havent been its a must, go once and I doubt if you will ever go anywhere else.
To visitors passing through, if you are only going to try one Indian restaurant, this HAS to be it!!
Well done to the staff and owners of the Al Naseeb, you really have set the bar extremely high.
Show me a better all round Indian dining experience and I will be straight down from Glasgow to experience it !!!!!
