I eat regularly here, so I've got to know a bit about it. The food is cooked Apna or Home Style and that means all the food is prepared on the premises using fresh ingredients using the traditional Indian method. The seasoning is more subtle than we British are used to. This is Indian food for the connoisseur. It is also excellent ‘curry for people who don’t like curry’. Once tried, Apna cuisine is never forgotten. I recommend the wonderful Masala fish as a starter. Brought sizzling hot to your table. You’ll never want to eat the fish from your local chip shop again! Try lamb or chicken karai or my special favourite, lamb naihari and relish the special combination of spices that enhance the flavour and make every mouthful appetising. There is none of that feeling of surfeit that one gets with the ‘Anglo-Indian’ travesties usually consumed with liberal amounts of lager. My advice is to eat as little as possible before a meal at the Khushi as once you start, you’ll not want to stop savouring those delectable blends of flavours.
Apna cuisine is only part of the extensive menu, though all of it is cooked with the same loving care. For those who are a little less adventurous, there is the usual selection of vindaloos and kormas. Or, there are omelettes, fried chicken and other more British fare. The Khushi solves the problem for couples who can’t agree on where to eat.
There are desserts - if you are still hungry. These include cake and ice cream and also more exotic, Eastern fare. Finish with a cup of coffee, tea or chava, a delicious eastern alternative. There are other drinks available such as the delightful cloudy lemonade. I'd better mention that the restaurant is not licensed, so bring a bottle.
On a budget? Try the 'all you can eat Indian buffet, three course for only £7.99. It's great!
The staff are really friendly. The decor is stylish and simple. The mood is relaxed but not slow. It's like eating with friends who can cook. Almost like a second home. This is because the atmosphere of apna cooking is so homely and welcoming. If you’re not sure what to choose ask Mohammad, the owner who will discuss your preferences and recommend a dish to suit you. Catch his enthusiasm - and like me, you’ll want to go back to the Khushi again and again.
