I have been to Salims many times previously as a student in Loughborough and the quality of the curries have never let me down. Their food is freshly prepared, served and exquisitely presented. The staff are efficient, well mannered and attentive. As a student I also regularly used their takeaway service which always delivered the food in plastic heat retaining containers which kept the curries burning hot upon arrival and ready for feasting!
After graduation and returning to Hong Kong, I have tried curry places in HK, NY, Amsterdam, Malaysia, Dublin - none of them have the distinctive taste that Salims has to offer (in particular the Chicken Makhani).
As I happened to be in Dublin for work a couple of weeks ago, I found myself planning a trip to Loughborough solely for the purpose to remind myself how good Salims was. I went with some friends who drove in from Nottingham and London just to visit this restaurant who also had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. This restaurant is highly recommended and sitting here typing this now, I'm a bit gutted they don't deliver to Hong Kong.
