Time Out Says
We are slightly perturbed as we arrive by the staff focusing their attentions almost exclusively on the male member of our party. And, sadly, the feeling continues for the rest of the meal (especially when it comes to settling up). Women, it seems, are not up to ordering, or paying, for themselves. We could perhaps overlook it if the food was superb, but on this evidence, it’s not. Starters are fine, but forgettable, the mains are hit and miss and the raita we order is missing from the table but present on the bill.
The prawn moilée main is undercooked and, as a result, the prawns are inedible, but the crispy fried okra, which comes in a lightly spiced batter with a satisfying crunch, is very tasty and moreish.
Apart from the décor here, there’s not much to suggest why it remains so popular. It has its moments, certainly, but it’s just not consistent. Maybe the 20 percent ADCB discount does the trick.
The bottom line
Looks great, doesn’t taste great.
