Indian and South Asian
Our appetisers were spectacular - my choice was crab morisa, which consisted of a large red capsicum pepper stuffed with spicy minced crabmeat and baked in the oven with a delicious cheese topping. My friend chose tandoori scallops, which arrived sizzling on a platter. The tender scallops had been slow cooked in delicate spices, and she declared they were the best she had ever tasted.
Just when we thought things couldn't get any better we were proved wrong - more delicious fare was set before us. The menu is extensive (the seafood menu alone was the largest we had ever seen) and it was tricky to choose just one dish, but eventually we settled for Kentish lamb Bengali korma, which was prepared using sweet fragrant spices simmered in a creamy sauce with fruits, and the amchoor - chicken in a buttery sweet and sour sauce flavoured with mango. To accompany, we shared fresh-tasting lemon rice, an onion bhaji, Bombay aloo and a delicious peshwari naan - the latter was just the thing to mop up every last scrap of the delicious sauces that we couldn't bear to leave on our plates. The meal was a complete success - so enjoyable in fact that we have already booked a table for next weekend. I simply can't wait.
