There is no better advert for a restaurant than a glowing firsthand review,and Devdas' satisfied customers have been spreading the word since it opened almost a decade ago. As a result, this restaurant has become one of the area's most popular, with an ever-expanding fan base. If you need further convincing before booking a table, however, just look to Devdas' collection of awards and accolades; it has been a finalist in the British Curry Awards for four years in a row and was also named as one of the top 100 UK restaurants.

With such a reputation, Devdas seemed well worth checking out. Inside, the dining room has a sophisticated and relaxing air, with smart furnishings and uniformly dressed tables. Professional and friendly service came courtesy of the experienced and knowledgeable staff, who were always on hand and happy to help guide us through the menu. Speaking of which, the choice is fantastic; classic favourites sit alongside more unusual offerings, with everything cooked from scratch for a wonderfully authentic result.

We began with crisp, light paneer tikka, deep-fried marinated king prawns, and subtly spiced stir-fried crab drizzled with honey sauce. All these dishes featured wonderful flavour and texture combinations, exemplifying the care and attention that goes into all Devdas' dishes. By this time, our expectations were certainly gathering momentum and it was with excited impatience that we awaited our next courses. We were grateful when these were served promptly in the form of a lamb sugondha and sea bass patrani. The former comprised melt-in-the-mouth pieces of meat prepared with rosemary, fresh mint leaves and a blend of Bangladeshi spices, while my guest's seafood dish featured subtly spiced, flaky sea bass cooked over a charcoal flame. Needless to say, both meals were well received and eagerly devoured.

Devdas' special offers promise unbeatable value, while their delivery service allows you to enjoy high-end restaurant cuisine in the comfort of your own home. For a sure-fire way of satisfying both your appetite and palate, make this great restaurant your dinnertime destination
