I took a very good friend out for a wonderful and memorable birthday meal last night. The venue was Taaj in Jordanstown. On arrival we were warmly greeted and seated and presented with our menus, which included the regular A la Carte and the High Tea Menu. As we were both hungry we opted for A la Carte. Whilst we looked at the menu we nibbled on freshly prepared and crisp poppadoms served with three delectable chutneys. Our drinks were a big bottle of Kingfisher for my bud and sparkling water for me!!
Our order was:
Mixed meat starter to share
(Chicken tikka, Lamb tikka, seekh kebab, reshmi kebab, meat samosa, salad)
Seafood balti (monkfish, king prawn)
Nag Puri (Chicken and lamb tikka)
The meat starter was well presented and the samosa pastry was crispy and meats were all tender and succulent.
The main courses were absolutely delicious, rich in flavour and spice and not oily or falsely coloured, but natural and authentic. The rice and nan were tasty and just enough for the two of us. Exceptional service in wonderful surrounds and amazing authentic food. All for under £60!!
