omg omg omg

finally i find out where the lahore kebab house is ... my relatives(annoyin ones at that.. hence i didnt call them to find out :P ) took me there when i first came to the UK but i forgot where it was located .. could you please post its address ...

its the only mughlai food in the UK that reminded me of the food at my fav restaurant in delhi so missed not knowing where it was ... yayyyyy

and to add to this list

there is little restaurant (actually just 3 tables there) behind victoria station in london run by this pakistani guy .. awesome food

and out of the posch ones B) ... its on totenham (its 5am and i cant spell.. lol) court road called malabar something ..cant remember ..very nice for that authentic south indian flavour (no masala dosas there dont go there wishing for them :P cause i did)
Don't have many, but two that I'd recommend are:

Jaipur - Milton Keynes
The Moghul Palace - Stony Stratford (get the Mogul Chicken)
Only ever been to one really good one........

Raj Poot in Bath

Oh.......and Prolly the best Indian food Iv ever had was cooked up by Willibaba at his house after the majikana festival.....mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Willibaba gets my vote.
Well I for one will second Robs vote for Willibaba !!! After majikana his meal hit the spot.
Not that any of you can make it but hey, you never know..... The one place Ill miss more than any at all in Dallas is Kalachandjis Restaraunt. It is a small vegetarian indian restaraunt in the side of a Krishna temple. amazing food, great music, and truly wonderful to be surrounded by the Krishnas, so nice they are ;-)

I will have to look into some of the recommendations tho, havent had Indian yet here in the UK.....


Maybe he can bring some of his cooking to the Psyproject party? I'd be up for trying some for sure with all these glowing recommendations....

PS Goagabba - fully broe.
Made a lovely veggie thai green curry yesterday, was scrummie :heart:
Aaah, Mrs B my GF would love to have that recipe...... :grin: pls :Smile3:

Mike Indidginus - Good idea, but knowing Willi + party........ :Wink3:

Oh yeah, and one more thing Mike - Lank, lank, fully cool broester :Wink3:

Very easy:-
1 jar of thai green curry sauce (llyod grosman???)(cheat but quick when your busy)
half smallish cauliflower
1 large corgette
potatoes (how ever many you like)
1 1/2 onions
2 green chillies
2 red chillies
3-4 cloves of garlic
half yellow pepper
half green pepper
2 carrots sliced
2 sticks of celery
as many mushrooms as you like
black pepper & salt

I think that is it...... I need to get some proper herbs & spices so I can make my own sauces that will blow you away.

Do you mean Drummond St., nr Euston? I have been studying across the road since october and have not yet ventured onto drummond st, but some good Bhel Phuri would go down a treat.

For good 'rolls' I reccomend Mela on shaftesbury avenue at lunchtime, but my two choices: (obviously excluding my mum's) has to be:

1. the ashram in pondicherry, south india. You eat the food in silence and you don't even have to pay if you don't want to (you can do the washing up).

2. the second hut along the clifftop in Varkala, Kerala where they start marinating fish when you order it and there's stunning sunset without fail.

Not on my list (because I haven't been to it) is the Rajput on Goldhawk Rd, which my housemates swear by.
