Cafe Balti Review - May 2015
Friday 29th May saw MKCC return to Café Balti in Wolverton. Eight of us met in the
Great Western for a couple of quaffs before the short walk around the block to the
We went straight to our table in a pleasantly appointed surroundings, and the staff
got on with the business of supplying poppadoms and drinks. Pickles were plentiful
with a nice red-coloured onion pickle with a bit bite to it and a good mixed pickle
(similar to lime pickle).The menu is pretty standard for MK Bangladeshi restaurants
- that is not a criticism. Starters were well-priced, prawn puree for less that £3
was the most popular. The puree was well-received and there was plenty of filling.
The manager also brought a couple of bowls of samples of new dishes on the menu.
One contained what we thought we dried broad beans, which having been cooked, were
partially rehydrated - a bit different and very nice. A couple of the guys went for
this as a main course. I chose the lamb dansak. There were very few negative comments
about the food - the odd bit of less than tender lamb being the only one I remember.
My lamb was fine, but I still have all my own teeth. An enjoyable evening, good value
food in a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin restaurant. Richard B did have the lamb balti.
I tried a bit. Not even close.
