Dildar Indian Restaurant

Dildar Indian Restaurant

100a, High St
Tel: 01606 592949

The Dildar is located in the old main High Street, just out of the new town centre in Winsford. Parking is available in the street outside or in nearby public car parks. In recent years this premises has undergone a number of changes of ownership, so let’s hope that this restaurant remains a more permanent fixture.

The restaurant is housed in large premises that are prominent from the road. It has been refurbished in a light and modern style, giving the appearance of having lots of space. The result being that tables are not packed closely together.

My wife and I went on a weekday evening at about eight o’clock and the restaurant was fairly quiet but did have a couple of other tables in use. During the course of the evening more diners arrived and there was a steady stream of people coming in for takeaway meals. This is a promising sign that the food is good.

We were seated straight away and we ordered drinks whilst we browsed the menu. We also ordered Poppadums and Chutneys.

The menu arrived and we studied the fairly standard contents that included Tandoori, Balti and Karahi as well as a wide variety of the usual curry dishes. We both ordered the Mixed Starter that consisted of Lamb Chop, Sheek Kebab, Chicken and Lamb Tikka. The Lamb Chops as a starter initially tempted me, but as one was included in the Mixed Starter I decided to go for that. For main course I ordered Lamb Karahi and my wife ordered just Onion Bhajis and a portion of Vegetable Rice. I also ordered Pilau Rice and Nan Bread.

The Mixed Starters contained a small salad of lettuce, cucumber and tomato, a small portions of Chicken and Lamb Tikka, Sheek Kebab and a decent Lamb Chop. The meat was good quality and well flavoured the yoghurt and mint sauce accompaniment was perfect. We were both suitably impressed and now had a taste for out main course.

The main courses arrived after a respectable wait. My Lamb Karahi was served in the Iron Karahi and looked quite tasty if perhaps a little oily. The Vegetable and Pilau Rice were very good and the Nan Breads were excellent. The food was served fresh and hot and proved to be exceptionally tasty. The Lamb Karahi contained a good quantity of tender lamb and a pleasant and not overpowering curry sauce. It was sympathetically spiced and well flavoured. We were suitably impressed with bot the flavour and the portion size.

We chose not to have dessert or coffee, although they did have the ubiquitous glossy dessert menu.

The bill cam to about £24 for two, including two drinks each, which was excellent value for money.

Overall we were pleased with the meal. The restaurant is clean, cheerful and presents nicely cooked food. It should establish itself as a firm favourite in the area and we will certainly return. In fact I have also shortlisted it as a suggested venue for a night out with the ‘lads’ at some stage in the future.
