Spice Fusion, Droitwich- Review by HungryOwl-On May 29, 2017 by HungryOwl
We headed out to Droitwich for a quiet meal on a sunny Sunday evening and arrived just as it started to rain. Typical English weather
The restaurant has been open in Droitwich for many years. My first visit was December 1999. Since the last time I was here is has been freshly decorated too.
I have never had a bad meal here and even once when I ordered a dish that was too spicy for me they changed it. The main waiter – who is possibly the owner is a friendly and knowledgeable guy who will help you choose your dishes and recommend the best rice or naan to accompany the meal.
Starters: Onion Barjis (me) Sheesh Kebab (FattyCat)
Mains: Lamb Mekhani and Peshwari Naan (me) and Chicken Bhuna (madras hot) and boiled rice (FattyCat).
Both of the starters were a delight and enough to leave us wanting our main courses.
The main courses arrived and I must say to the eye mine did not look attractive – more like a plate of carrot puree with cheese?? I did not get why there was cheese on top of my curry and it was just standard cheddar. The curry was strange consistency, but tasted lovely and there was also lots of lamb. My fault though the Peshwari Naan was too sweet to be served with such a sweet curry. FattyCat helped finish it off with his spicy curry – saying it was a perfect match.
I think FattyCat took on a challenge too far with his Madras hot Bhuna – it was packed with veg and chicken, it was clearly very spicy and he added quite a lot of the minty yogurt dressing.
We had selected the food from the £9.95 menu and I had chosen lamb instead of chicken or veg which was an extra £1.95. On top of this we had a pint of cola each the total bill was £28. So I must say I felt a little ripped off by the price of the colas.
The food was excellent to taste, but not the most attractive. The service was friendly, helpful and at a pleasant speed, so we were not feeling rushed or neglected.
