Quick grab a pen and write down this number – Sheffield 2395000 – it’s all you need if you are looking for a top quality Indian takeaway.
I discovered it by chance after watching TV chef Rick Stein taking a culinary circuit of India.
Watching old Rick at work gave old Nick a burning desire to find something similar.
I called a mate who knows his onions – and his bhajis – when it comes to curry. He recommended Mehr’s Massala.
The place, which boasts an open kitchen, didn’t disappoint. We had a beautiful mixed kebab starter with crisp large popadoms and a range of dips.
This was followed by a meat full delicately flavoured chicken balti and pilau rice which was again perfectly cooked.
And the bill – a very reasonable £13.10. Bargain.
