All Comments

Dave - Excellent well researched choice of venue - superb starter and the award of my first ever 10 for the Nan Bread. Good "local" ambience however service was a bit poor.

Graeme - A very different style of place to the norm - more like a café - no flock wallpaper and NO BEER! I didn't really like the place but the food was good, esp. the nan - the best yet. We had to walk so far to it, I was worried in case I needed my passport to get back to the City. My overall opinion of the place was not helped by the fact that I was up half the night with the sh**s (a liquid bowel condition).

Mark - A Curry too far - Wrats would like this place as it must be almost local. Unique delivery of starters, one plate and pick out your own? Cheap and simple, (reminds me of a girl I once knew) the food was good but it would help to have the pickles served with the poppadums.

Neil - Cue compulsory 'string up Dave for making us walk miles' comment, in actual fact only 20 minutes if you know where you're going. Obviously we didn't. The new Presidente must stamp out the emerging practice of dessert consumption.

Robin - It's not Griff's fault dragging us all that weary, stomach rumbling way out to the boonies - it's his parents. They must have dropped him on his head at some point, and I feel like staging a repeat performance. Poor ambience (no tablecloths), no beer, indifferent veg, strange insubstantial rice, reasonable service (but I'd rather finish my starter before my main course is dumped in front of me), fair main course, good starter and a superb nan.

Darryl - After a Nepalese-like trek into the bowels of Whitechapel my comment still stands 'I don't go this far for a shag...'. No Alcohol licence, Plastic cane chairs, no table cloths and Al-foil on the lights certainly distracted from the ambience. Starter was dry/overcooked, Main (Daily Special) was a mild spicy but good, the chickpeas dish was actually the tastiest, the papadoms were the thinnist I've seen (good).
