Eastern Paradise Review – April 2017
Usual meet at 1930 at The North Western. Good Directors and other drinks. A small group due to bank holidays causing a late re-arrangement, five go for a curry in Wolverton.
Shown to a nice table on time, to a fairly full restaurant. The reason became clear in that they do banquet on Friday! £15 for the classic five. Kingfisher and Cobra on draught. We had to have poppadums to retain that authentic review feel. These were served with a fairly standard selection of pickles.
I choose Bengal fish to start, which was tastey and made a bit of a change. Lal Mas for main – the good points were the lamb, which was beautifully cooked. The disappointment – with 2 chilies shown on the menu, I was hoping for that classic Lal Mas – but it just wasn’t hot enough. If a dish has no chilies marked, it must be negative hot. The dish was flavoursome, as were all the rice, veg dishes and naan.
The outstanding point was the service – they knew who we were, but nonetheless, well done to the staff. Would I visit again? If in Wolverton, yes, while mentioning to the staff when ordering, that if I order a hot curry, I expect a hot curry.
Summary – Need to visit again as it’s moved to Stony Stratford
Common Curry – Good value.
Certificate – None awarded
