I must confess that, although fond of curry, I have not been to an Indian restaurant for a long long time. Yet somehow, on Friday night after a particularly punishing week at work, I found myself with a raging, curry sized hole. Cafe Naz was nearby, and looked bright, modern, and reassuringly busy. We were welcomed in and shown to a good table. Service was prompt and professional, the food and drinks arrived as quickly as I needed them to. Chicken jalfrezi and lamb dhansak - always good benchmark dishes to sample-were unlike the tired, oily offerings I remember in the past: both delicious, with distinguishable flavours of fresh spices.
The atmosphere was lively and very busy, with parties of all shapes and sizes. The high turnover clearly ensures that the food is freshly cooked. The interior is bright and modern; no whirly carpets or mock colonial decor here; think more along the lines of a smart college canteen, which I suspect is what Naz may resemble during college term time. We paid £45 for two pints of lager, a keema naan, basmatic rice, two main course,two vegetable dishes and one kulfi. Very reasonable for the quality; I will be returning the very next time the curry sized hole appears, which I now suspect will be sooner rather than later.
