The Darbar Indian Restaurant

65-67 Wilmslow Road
Rusholme
Manchester

Marg and I had just dropped off my son at his new digs within walking distance of the Darbar, and left him to unpack and clean the place.

We entered the place at about 3:30, with just a ouple of Indian ladies eating.

A couple of Poppadoms each, and the half-dozen relishes almost sated us on this hot and sunny day. Quite often I find that poppadoms have a bitter aftertaste redolent of rancid oil - these were fresh and dry.

Marg thought she'd try the Chicken Pillau, but there was a little confusion, and the waiter suggested the Chicken Biryani which she agreed to. I asked what the waiter suggested, and he told me the Lamb, on the Bone, Traditional Style, was his recommendation.

This Lamb Karahi was exquisite - the meat was perfectly cooked, and the spicing was "just so". The Raita accompaniment was fresh and tangy - again nicely spiced.

Marg's Biryani was just what she had hoped for - she has a morbid dislike of yoghurt, an unfortunate (for her) staple in Indian (and other) cuisines.

We both ate until we were fit to burst.

There was only one downside to the visit: one of the waiter's grasp of English appeared to be poor, and on a couple of occasions, he went away from our table without understanding what we'd asked for - a very minor problem which I forgive.

Verdict - I will certainly be visiting my son more often than is my fatherly duty - any excuse to eat again at the Darbar!!!

There is enough for all. The earth is a generous mother; she will provide in plentiful abundance food for all her children if they will but cultivate her soil in justice and in peace.
