I like what we in Europe call "Indian food". I am a sucker for spicy chicken and often order chicken vindaloo.
I walked by F. East today and decided to test them. The restaurant was almost empty and I choosed to sit on the terrace in a "lounge" sofa. Not ideal for eating but relaxed and comfy. The menu has something for everyone. While I decided I was served complimentary poppadoms with sauces, a nice touch.
I choosed chicken vindalo, basmatri rice (which is not really needed because you get potatoes in vindalo), garlic nan and cucumber raita (youghurt).
It was all delicious. The nan was of course freshly made and beautiful colored with what I believe is safron. The chicken as spicy as you can expect. I really enjoyed this quality food.
My only "complaint" is that you get too much food. I ate probably half of it. It's more of a problem for the restaurant but I don't like leaving food.
So if you fancy some really good indian food in a relaxed lounge environment, this is your place. They do have proper dining tables as well if you don't like the sofa.
In addition to all the food described above, I had a Castle beer predrink and a huge glass of Shiraz. Still the bill was only R201.
