One to avoid is Everest on the junction on Poonsuk and soi Kanjanomai (where the Thupurai hotel is). Earlier, I had one of those cravings you get for an Indian from to time. Nothing else would do.

I actually went to Mehfil, opposite the Hilton, which I ate at once before and although pricey, the food was excellent. But I couldn't get in! There was a bike with a side car completely blocking the entrance while making a delivery and it was raining. There was no way through and after standing there like a lemon for a couple of minutes, I'd had enough and remembered seeing the place above, which seems quite new, so I wandered around and it looked okay.

So they gave me some free poppadum's and three dips to start with, 2 of the 3 dips were perfectly fine. My starter of veggie pakora consisted of individual vegetables coated with a type of soft batter and tasted of nothing at all really, other than of individual vegetables cooked in some sort of soft batter. I played a guessing game with what the veg was, a cauliflower floret was easy enough, as was the onion, otherwise I was clueless, apart from the chilli one. Yup, that's a single chilli in this softish sort of batter, that was a bit tasty, but not in a nice way! No dip was provided as an accompaniment.

Naturally, by this stage, I wasn't expecting much of my chicken jalfrezi and I wasn't disappointed. It bore no real resemblance to a curry, yet alone a Jalfrezi. It was just chunks of chicken in a tomatoey sauce with an overall taste of rancid chilli. I didn't eat much. I just had plain steamed rice served with the 'curry' and I'm glad I did, I saved some money rather than risk another type of rice.

I had a garlic naan as well, as least that's what the menu called it. It didn't really have the appearance or texture of naan and nor could I tasted any garlic, maybe because it was burnt?

To be honest, it's my fault really, any restaurant that has an 'international' and Thai menu, as well as an Indian one, is unlikely to provide the real McCoy.

Next time, I'll just be patient and wait in the rain if I need to.

Not sure what you mean ,but my experiense whit many restaurants ,be thai,indian ,middle east or others they dont allways cook the same way to a forrenger that they would cook to their native people,because they are affraid it could be to spicy or that people dont like the flavor of some food.

Completely agree, it's opposite Amari Hotel, British Curry House style food, and live music usually after 9.00 pm I think. Prices v. good too. And they have some screens for live sports. They are doing a buffet now on Saturday evening but didn't try it yet.

There's an international style menu too.

It was Zafran near the Hilton before they moved, same chef.

Which is why Thai food in the west is so disappointing.

Which post was that in reply to? We're talking about Indian food.

If mine, I spent 12 years in Dubai and ate a huge amount of 'proper' Indian and Pakistani food. Dubai also has a Brick Lane take away place which I also used from time to time (Brick Lane being the East London street where Indians own many restaurants, I don't think there's a Thai equivalent in the UK). Both styles are tasty in their own way, just as Chongqing spicy hotpot (Huoguo) cooked by a Chinese is totally different to British-chinese style special fried rice and kung pao prawns from the takeaway on the corner. But I crave both from time to time. I'm under no illusion which is considered 'authentic' but that doesn't concern me.

if you like the taste of the food it doesn't matter if it's "authentic" or not. I used to eat at a Thai restaurant in San Destin , Fl. that was as good as anywhere I've eaten in Thailand. if you've never been to India how would you know if the taste was "authentic"? beware the food police.

I agree it doesn't matter, and this is also is maybe getting too close to the confused idea of cultural appropriation. Two American women selling street tacos in the US have had people trying to take legal action against them because they're not Mexican!

In Dubai, I ate a lot of food cooked for Indians by Indians, Pakistanis the same. Small shops where you never see a white face (except my drunken mug at 2.00 maybe). So I can say that although I never went to India I can be 99 percent sure I've tasted authentic Subcontinent food on a lot of occasions. I can honestly say I enjoy the taste as much at the Brit-style Indian at Take 5. Neither is superior (both are cooked by an Indian though :D ).

99% is a high enough number. I will try Take 5, Paul Desmond not withstanding.

I've played music with people from India so I may be guilty of cultural appropriation. ditto for Reggae and Jazz, not to mention European classical music, Brazilian, Cuban, etc. it's a good thing I'm using an alias or I'd be spending all my time in court. Oh wait, this isn't the U.S. Phew!

:P Yep I think we're far enough away from 'The West' not to have to worry about people with those sensitivities yet. I wore black/grey shirts or a black ribbon pinned to my shirt for several months after the King died to show respect, and I wasn't accused of trying to pass as Thai; those that did comment said they appreciated the action.
