tasty and friendly

A new restaurant to the area and I was intrigued to try. The waiter invited me in to peruse the menu, he wasn't pushy and went behind the bar whilst I chose but was there to answer questions and take my order when I was ready. He even offered me complimentary soup whilst I waited for my order. Very hospitable. He food was lovely, very tasty with its own flavours, making it different from other Afghani restaurants. We ordered Afghani Tikka lamb, well marinated chunks of meat beautifully cooked with naan and a refreshing salad, the fried aubergine in tomato sauce was the highlight, delicious, my father's Egyptian so I've had a lot of aubergine, this was really tasty. Lots of garlic and big juicy pieces of red pepper. The spinach palak, tasted so creamy, although it wasn't. The pickle was a surprise, a little like that made by a Kenyan Punjabi that I know. It had glorious cubes of pickled garlic, chillies and cauliflower, different from what I expected, but very pleasantly so. For dessert, the Ras Malahi which I'd ordered as its our favourite Afghani and I Diane dessert was just being made and wasn't ready, but the waiter helpfully suggested the Firnee instead. I wasn't too sure, but was so glad we couldn't get the ras malahi. The Firnee was a rich, milky pudding, thickened a little by around almonds, and spiced with cardomen. It's my new favourite. Nice and light after a hearty meal. Portions weren't huge as they can be in Arab restaurants but it wasn't stingy either. just right, especially considering the price too; so lamb, salad, spinach, aubergine, pickles, 2naans and a dessert happily filled 2 of us and cost is just 20 quid. With a wee bit left over for a snack tomorrow. Nice one Uranus, we''ll be back to they the Amiga and rash malahi and get a 2nd portion of aubergine.
