It was a Saturday night and as a part-time British ex-pat, that means an Indian! So we tried this restaurant as we had enjoyed the Italian place next door. The place was empty at 7.30pm which didn't bode well.
We ordered the traditional starter of poppadums which came with 2 spicy dips, neither of which were the traditional mango chutney or raita. The poppadums were not freshly cooked which was disappointing in an empty restaurant and would never happen in an Indian place back in the UK. Then we had to pay extra for mango chutney etc.
There were very few side dishes - no onion bhajia and no Bombay aloo - although the spicy potatoes were offered in a naan bread, they declined to give them to me as a side dish although they could put them in a curry!
The main courses of chicken tikka and chicken arrived along with our cauliflower aloo. Everything was luke warm temperature wise and not particularly tasty in our opinion.
All in all, very disappointing to a Brit who is used to British Indian restaurants - it may be that if you don't know what these have to offer, then you may of course enjoy the Al Hamra, but we didn't and won't be returning
