As an englishman who loves his curry, with a girlfriend who misses curry since she returned to mexico city a few months earlier, we decided that it would be worth a visit to this restaurant!
We got there and ended up being the only people in there for half an hour or so, by the end of our meal there was only two other couples. The atomosphere score was purely on being stared at by the waiter and waitresses. If this would was busier, im sure this wouldnt have happened and there would have been alot higher.
To start off with, we ordered drinks (a diet coke and something ive forgotten the name of)
These took about 20 minutes to come, and keep in mind, we were the only people there, to take a can of diet coke to a table with a glass. The other drink was like a coriander milkshake, awful, but again, our fault and likely a traditional drink of the area. Not anything to do with the restaurant and so isnt any part of my score.
When we ordered our starter, the Samosas were awesome, probably the best I had ever had, but I had ordered a rice dish i expected to be a vegetarian biryani, alas, it was rice with a few vegetables in (again, my fault i suppose), and not all that interesting. My girlfriend had chosen aubergine curry, which came out in a very very small dish. along with these we had naan breads, that were ok, but mine was a garlic naan and didnt taste anything like garlic.
As my girlfriend had no rice with her meal and i had nothing but rice, we shared. Overall it was a very small meal with not alot of substinence for one person, letalone two.
The desserts were awful. Old, hard and dry, not much else to say.
On top of this, for the meal described, one milkshake and two diet cokes, this meal came to $430 pesos. Which, in mexico city is a very high cost for a very small meal. Even in england this would have been steep, and the meal far heartier and not all that different from what im used to.
That said, what we enjoyed the main meal, however small it was, and may return in the future, with a thicker wallet, being less adventurous in the drinks department and not having desert.
