We have popped in on 4 occasions now, looking for a rather quick eating experience before a show or gig. Last night there were 2 other tables in use which was very pleasant: sunny day, door open onto the wide avenue of the city, airy floor to ceiling windows. It is quite a small restaurant with tables close together - though I believe there is an upstairs also - so it was very nice to have it almost to ourselves!
Poppodoms and 4 plentiful dips came immediately as always, with a carafe of water. As usual we ate them all, and then when my main arrived I couldn't finish it! I never learn!
We ordered a main each. I had biryani, which arrived beautifully presented with a side of lovely chunky sauce and decorated very colourfully. We didn't order any sides on this occasion. Prices for mains can be under 10 euro, for example a vegetable biryani is about 9.50 euro I think. Sides can be ordered in larger portions as mains, and these can be around 7.50, and a side of rice is 3 euro. I didn't notice any main over 16 euro, however the menu is quite extensive so there may well be. The portions are a perfect size and tasted delicious. I didn't finish mine and my companion barely finished hers. The service is always spot on; last nights waitress was welcoming and professional. Whilst the cooking is done in sight of the diners, it is unobtrusive.
