Saturday night. Business meeting. Went on longer than we'd expected. Left it late for a meal.

So Phil and I decided on an Indian, and ended up here at about 9:45pm. I'd heard about the place from friends, but had never tried it.

The restaurant is on the first floor, accessed by a fairly steep flight of stairs, so I couldn't class it as "disabled friendly". We waited in the small bar area for about 10 minutes with a Lager, then were led into the dining room, which was "L" shaped, with about 60 covers.

We skipped poppadoms, as we invariably find that it's easy to gorge on them to the detriment of the main meal unless you're very hungry.

Phil had the Mixed Tandoori, and I had Tandoori Trout for starters. We were both pleased, though Phil thought a larger helping would have been nice. Tandoori Trout was a pleasant novelty on the menu.

Phil went for Lamb Rogan Josh, and I decided on a Lamb Balti - share a dish of Pilau rice, and a couple of plain Naans.

Phil was very pleased with the Rogan Josh, commenting on the rich tomato flavour.

My Balti was good, though I personally would have enjoyed a little more fresh Coriander.

The rice was very good, as were the Naans. A couple coffees, and the bill came to just short of 28

Although the menu is fairly standard, the Fort of India hosts a monthly Banquet with dishes which weren't familiar to me - I'd like to go along just to try some of these - for example:

Palok Gusht
Nowabi Murghi
Chicken Makon Wala
Chicken Chilli Paneer

Of course, we'll report here just as soon as we can!

Drink moderately, for drunkenness neither keeps a secret, nor observes a promise.
