Apparently the most authentic Indian restaurant in town. If authentic means tasteless and overpriced then this has authenticity in abundance.
We ate a set meal for two. This included the tandoori chicken, fish, chicken curry, pilau rice and a single small nan. Only one nan. A set meal for two with only one nan. That makes little sense to me.
The service is passable albeit functional. I don't really mind bad service so long as the food is delicious, but I noted that no glass of water or tea was offered upon arrival.
The entree consisted of a too sweet but potable soup and a plate of diced carrot, cucumber and turnip. The diced vegetables looked like they had been left out on the counter for a week and were covered in black specks of dirt and browning at the corners.
We instinctively ignored these starters in expectation of a lovely portion of chicken. When it arrived my heart fell. The portion was SO small, about a mouthful of chicken. It was chewy and tasted fairly bland. The single small fish I received was tasty but not enough to feed all but the very smallest of mammals.
The most embarrassing dish was the chicken curry. 'Mild' is one word to describe the taste, 'Shit' is far more accurate adjective. Again the chicken was uncommonly chewy. The tablespoon of rice pudding at the end was pleasant enough but couldn't salvage a disappointing meal.
We had bought a set meal off the internet for 100kuai at a discount from 400kuai. I felt that I had been ripped off even with the discount.
I simply cannot believe they charge 400kuai for a meal as poor as this. I have to assume they served us a cheap approximation of what the 400kuai actual buys. If this is the case then the proprietors are not only inept but also dishonest and idiotic. Surely a discount offer is designed to drum up business not drive it away?
And they only gave us one nan.
Don't eat here.
