Have your say

This takeaway was recommended to The Star by a reader of our food pages, so I thought I’d give it a go.

I tried a starter I hadn’t seen before, badahmi chicken tikka (£4.60). The chicken pieces are coated in peanut butter and cooked in a clay oven. I couldn’t taste peanut but the spicy yoghurt and tangy tamarind dips were lovely.

For the main course I tried a rabbit curry (£6.50). The meat on the bone is slow cooked in goose fat and ghee, then added to a mild curry sauce with rosemary. The meat was good, the sauce was full of flavour and the rosemary added extra depth. Side orders of pilau rice (£1.80) and tandoori roti (70p) were top class.

I wasn’t a fan of the saffron ice cream (2.20), with its smoky and almost antiseptic flavour, although it was well made.
