“A Bone to Pick in Paradise”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

I want to start a campaign. Bring back bones!

When Indian restaurants first appeared in this country - and, regrettably, I’m old enough to remember - they were all the same. Dark red walls, a bar at the far end and individual tables with white tablecloths along both sides, with obsequious, long-suffering waiters, who would pull out a table with a flourish when you arrived. A couple would always sit next to one another along the walls.

Some long standing traditions remain. Papadums are served first together with a rotating pickle tray, which is removed before you really need it - with the food. A biryani always comes with a vegetable curry, and takeaways always include a salad in a plastic bag, which makes them easy to throw away.

In those early days, a chicken curry would always be served on the bone unless you paid extra for “off the bone”, but when did you last see those words on a menu? Probably never, and you don’t know what you’re missing!

To find out, order a takeaway from Taste of Paradise and include the chef’s special dish “Staff Chicken”. The name tells it all; it’s the way they would eat a chicken curry and it’s heavenly - but make sure you don’t eat the bones!

Indeed, everything we’ve ordered from Taste of Paradise is delicious and made in an Indian traditional way instead of an English Indian traditional way.

This takeaway also serves other types of food, which is unusual for such good food, but don’t let that put you off, but I do have two criticisms. They charge a fee for credit cards, which is wrong, and they charge for delivery, which is very annoying. We always tip the driver anyway!

We shall, however, continue to order from Taste of Paradise, because that’s what they provide.
