Dave - Not keen on this Curry House. Beer was crap, No Chicken Curry was advertised. No distingushing features to the toilets, my Nan bread was like a dumpling and my starter was luke warm. On top of this I had to keep getting up every two minutes to let Diggers get to the toilet. I think it is time to move away from Brick Lane as the last few visits have been disappointing.
John - Good King prawn bhuna and chicken chat. I'm sure I wasn't the first person to drink my pint of Cobra so the beer got a bad mark. Overall.. not bad.
Graeme - The main part of the restaurant was softly lit and there were a number of couples eating there - it looked a bit sophisticated. However, we were shown to the tradesman's entrance which led to a pretty basic room. The food was nothing special. Unusual L-shaped toilet 'cubicle' with anti-Chelsea graffiti. The draft Cobra was very poor - I took my own revenge!
Mark - Not quite su-Preeme. Very quick service and extremely good portion size for my Sag Gosht. Bit of a fast food atmosphere rather than a relaxed evening meal. Nan a touch doughy and overall pricey. Glad we were not nearer the stinky loo's.
Brian - Nothing very good to say about this one - overall a very average restaurant with dreadful draught beer.
Neil - Beer? Brown water more like, terrible! Loos needed brightening up so I added some traditional touches, please note Brian Tinnion is a Bristol City footballer not Welsh for 'my line manager is incompetent'.
Jon - Busy and probably the biggest curry house I've been to. The draught Cobra was more like Tesco's Value Lager although the bottled stuff was much better. I think I benefited from a good choice of main dish with the Chicken Madras that was very good. The gents lavatorial facilities had been defaced with the name of some unknown farmer who kicks a pigs bladder around a field in cider country - what's the point? (Neil did try to make us believe this guy was a professional footballer). I did however manage to secure Neil's home number in order to report on his future exploits to his wife.
Darryl - [None]
Robin - Worse place so far. Watery draught beer and slapdash service. Starter was okayish and main dish was very tasty but lacked sufficient sauce. Unspeakable ablution facilities, but then I only went to the gents, unlike most others who made a trip to the ladies at some point.
Joseph - Lavish placemats, petite pepper shakers, all very un-indian oxymoronish, like a competent Zimbabwean umpire ..... bastard!!! .... (cricket ... nevermind). Efficient service, efficient decor, efficient food .…... My curry was flooded with chicken, struggled to eat it all. The starter again a disappointing sawdust-like beef thingee. The evening could be summed up perplexingly by the stench infused toilets ..... somebody had stolen the gender demarcation from the door as a souvenir ….. should I be standing or sitting, was it good or wasn't it???
