I consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to Indian restaurants and know a thing about well prepared food, service, value for money and atmosphere. A good first impression when walking in - wonderful aroma, comfortable seating and pleasant Indian background muzak. The menu was extensive but there were no side dishes as such, just smaller versions of main dishes. However €9 a shot for a side dish is pretty extortionate. The Fish Tikka was off the menu, (permanently by the way). A pity, because, to quote the waiter, it was "the best thing on the menu..." . We therefore ordered Fish Jelfrezi, Aubegine curry and Lamb Korma with naan, roti and rice. Needless to say with no side dishes... Soon after ordering the pappadums with the standard dips arrived. Shame all were obviously from a packet. All main courses had a good flavour and pleasantly spicy and the fish and meat tender. The naan and roti were traditional and not out of a packet. The side salad was crisp and refreshing. Indian beer on offer: Kingfisher or Cobra. The service was average, the waiter somewhat distant and was rather slow in offering and refilling drinks.
