Being curry fans we were really looking forward to our meal at Rajinda Pradesh. We like to eat out and thought a curry would be a great treat while at Center Parcs.
However, the whole meal was a disappointment.
We had the set menu deal, this was advertised outside but when we got our menus it didn't mention it at all. We asked if it was available and were then given a leaflet. Another table arrived after us and asked the same thing about the set menu!
The service was prompt and we got our poppadoms straightaway. They were very oily and tasted like the ones you make yourself out of a packet. The dips that came with it, were a bit of a guessing game, they weren't like any we have had before, one even had the taste of pesto.
The starter platter was bland, the bhaji had an unpleasant powdery after taste; while the drumstick was slathered in sauce but had no taste at all.
Our main courses were again fairly quick to the table but were the biggest disappointment. I had a Makhani, which is normally a rich creamy dish and not overtly spicy, mine tasted like a bland tomato sauce. My partner had a Dhansak, and again this lacked flavour and spice. The base of the dish is normally a lentil dhal but this tasted more like boiled and bloated lentils had been stirred into a base sauce. The pilau rice seemed like microwave rice from a supermarket takeaway. The garlic naan was the best part of the meal with a good garlicy flavour but again had an oily texture like the poppadoms. We left most of our mains and were both very disappointed.
The service we received was polite and prompt overall but overall I felt the food was overpriced for the quality.
