Let me start by saying that the food at cafe india is excellent with a capital 'E' !
The food however, also seems to be interpretive. What I mean by that, is that although excellent, none of it is as you would expect from a normal, run of the mill curry house. It's as though the normal dishes (madras, parhia etc) were explained to the chef, and what he serves up is his interpretation of what has been explained to him. Is
The madras is tasty as hell, but lacks the heat. The vindaloo is what I would expect the madras to taste like. The Parthia is an unusual consistence, though still ridiculously tasty.
The only let down that we had was the lack lustre peshwari naan, which was lacking in filling, that said, the parts that had an abundant amount of filling were superb!
The staff were friendly but a tiny bit inattentive (though this could have been my impression as I was ravenous and wanted my food now, Now, NOW! like the big baby I am when I'm overly hungry)
Overall a great restaurant experience with excellent food, but not necessarily the best option if all you want is what your used to from other curry houses. Very nearly a 5star rating from me on this one.
