|So many curries!|
The butter chicken was nice but lacked the full bodied flavour of a true curry. Vegetable curry was creamy but tasted a little strange due the the addition of mint. However, this may be a personal preference. Tandoori chicken was slightly cold but forgivable. Daal, rice and naan were deee-licious! Daal was smooth and creamy, yellow rice was flavoursome while the naan was thick and stretchy - yum! Raita was ok but I wish the butter chicken was a lot spicier so that it could be utilised.

Dining companions who ordered the Vindaloo and Tikka Masala both said that these curries were tasty and held enough flavour. Unfortunately, the prawns of the last Thali were overcooked and tasteless, although the flavour of the curry was nice. Feedback was that it appeared as though the prawns were already cooked then dressed in the curry sauce, resulting in prawns that did not retain any flavour.

The Thali Room offers a nice introduction to Indian food and an amazing setting for dinner. Inside it's dark and exotic, where you dine at low tables while sitting on plush ottomans. Although there were some pitfalls to the food this night, overall it was a pleasant experience that warrants another visit. Thali Room were also kind enough to offer us a two for one voucher for our next visit!
