Decent curries and top notch service on Hamdan Street
Time Out Says
Proving that courteous, well-informed waiters aren’t exclusive to posh hotels, the staff at this Hamdan Street outlet practically line up to bid you hello and goodbye. But while the hospitality is certainly fit for a king, the food can vary. A slapdash approach to spice quantities seems to be the main stumbling block. The grilled chicken tikka chunks, for example, taste overwhelmingly of mustard, while the makhani curry could do with more of a fiery punch. Elsewhere, the small selection of Chinese dishes feels tacked on and – judging by the sheesh kebabs and vegetable biryanis that whiz from kitchen to table all evening long – pretty unnecessary. Still, despite the noted exceptions, most dishes are still above average and the family crowds – packed in even on a weekday evening – certainly have no complaints. So for a decent meal in warm surroundings, you could do far worse. But be warned that any accompanying curry aficionados will find a few holes to pick.
