Hi Guys, great forum and as you all sound so well informed I thought you might be able to help me. I am looking for a decent Indian takeaway. I was always a big fan of Simply Indian but have stopped ordering as the last few have been very disappointing - small and not as fresh and well spiced as previously. So, consequently, am looking for other recommendations - any thoughts? Thanks
We went to Cafe Nawaz on Snowsfield (behind Guys Hospital) the other night. Great food & friendly staff. A fairly normal Indian menu, but at £20 for 2 (its Bring Your Own Wine), you cant go wrong.
Well worth it
Beetroot - Perhaps we have just been really unlucky but the last two or three times we have had anything from there has been such a disappointment compared to previously. We used to order from there regularly and were always really pleased with it. The food was lovely and fresh tasting and you could taste the fresh blend of spices and fresh coriander used. Friends were also full of praise whenever they were here.
However, the last two or three have been much smaller, the meat has not tasted as good and the spice and herb taste has not been as fresh. Friends who have tried it have been as disappointed as we were.
As I said, perhaps we were just unlucky with the times we have ordered. I will no doubt try it again at some point in the hope that we will once again have the great experiences we used to have.
Morley Tandoori is fab - talk about tasty and varied - we use it all the time!!
I'll second that -- I must have had an average of 3 or 4 take-aways a month from there in the past few years, and only been disappointed a couple of times (fatty lamb or tough chicken). The prices are unbeatable!
I recommend Cafe Nawaz too. I've been a couple of times, it's really cheap (as already commented) and the waiting staff are always really friendly. And as it's a BYO makes it a cheap night out. Well worth the visit.
