The prices are okay, maybe slightly pricy for a couple of thing.
My fav 'Indian' restaurant in the UK5
Like with anywhere you have to know what to order though, so here's my recommendations...
For 1 person - Onion bhajias for starters, followed by a Karahi Lamb and a nan.
For 2 - just add their Mixed Grill (the best mixed grill I've ever eaten!) to the list.
For more - Try the Karahi fish, Karahi chicken, Karahi chilli chicken, Samosas... (I'll update this list after my next visit!)
Avoid the dal - not great; and the 'mango lassi'. For starters no one drinks the stuff in India or Pakistan, and Mirch really don't make it so well. If you really like mango lassi, try 'Roti' a couple doors down. You can take it away in 4-pint bottles :)
Follow it up by walking down to Anand Pan a little further up the road towards Tooting Bec and try their malai kulfi as dessert. It's on a stick so you can eat it on the run, and it's a great way to end the meal!
