All Comments

John - Nice starter - Prawn Puree. Main course bland - veg dish cold. Also v. expensive. However, conversation lively. Griff had the quote of the year: "His friend is a blood specialist he specialises in blood." PROFOUND!!

Dave - Excellent curry house - more upmarket than those visited recently (fully tiled toilets complete with halogen lighting!). Duck Tikka for starter was very tasty and I even ventured away from chicken curry for the main course. On top of all this I had the honour of sharing the experience with two ex-presidents of the curry club. Definitely worth a return visit.

Graeme - We played just 3 at the back for this fixture (for the first time in the history of the Club) - but with such experience in the side, it was a comfortable performance. I liked this place although my score probably won't reflect this fully. It was very smart (and the toilets were faultless). My meal was let down by my main course (Chicken Madras) which tasted like the chicken had been cooked separately to the sauce - maybe a result of having a curry in the quiet Xmas week.
