Rare for me to post here but I was so angry with Balaka & Jahinga Indian restaurants during Open Championshp weekend, they more than doubled their prices for the 4-days - pure greed!
Already fairly expensive restaurants, they were usual prices early in the week but by Thursday the 'same' menu suddenly had no starter less than £4.95 and no curry without rice for less than £15.95! Every dish highly inflated, over £5 for a side bahjee etc.
A meal for two in Balaka cost £55 on the prior Sunday, I estimated the same meal over Open Championship would have been £125, I heard but not confirmed that a cobra beer was also being charged at £9 a bottle. We walked out of Balaka after ordering a beer and viewing the menu having complained to the manager and refused to order at those prices..
Thankfully the new evening only Indian in South St. (Chilli and Pepper? ), retained normal prices throughout. First time I've eaten there and I have to say I'm really glad, it's far superior to Balaka and Jahinga so the latter two have shot themselves in the foot by losing regular customers.
I'll tell all I know about the pricing, I wish the new restaurant every success and recommend it above Balaka & Jahinga, not only on quality and quantity but the manager has some moral backbone not trying to make a quick buck by ripping off golf visitors.
I'd like to also recommend The Grill House, an old favourite that managed to keep service, prices and quality the same throughout the week, great service, fine steaks & ribs - highly recommended!
I hope this interests some.
