Guest review
by Simon Middleton, Newport Pagnell

Went for the banquet night on Monday/Tuesday - starter, main, side, rice/nan and a small cobra for £9.95.

Limited choice of food as when we said we wanted the banquet, the big menu was whisked away to be replaced by a postcard with the available dishes on. Less of a banquet, more a banquette but at least it had all my favourites on it. Started with a sheek kebab which was a tad crumbly but very spicy. Managed to nick half an onion bhajee off my neighbour which was rather good.

Main dish was Chicken Pathia. Not overly spicy (on the way in!) but had a fantastic rich tangy fruity sauce and plenty of chicken. Peshwari nan was an ideal accompaniment, the sweetness counterbalancing the tartness of the sauce. Aloo gobi side dish was a bit cold but when you're in a group of 17, you expect that sort of thing.

Overall, the meal was very good and particularly good value for money. The staff were a bit grumpy at first but seemed to cheer up as the night progressed and a good few large cobras were ordered to supplement the small freebies. Shame about those sheeks (or skeeks depending on the menu).

Simon rated this 8 out of 10.
