Film club last night. We opted to discuss the film over a curry. Appropriately enough, the film we were discussing was Slumdog Millionaire. I know, obvious.
One of the guys suggested Hansa’s and it’s been some time since I was last there and I have to say that it’s not a place I would have chosen for a curry. On top of this, my rather meaty outlook on life is decidedly iffy about the lack of a lamb chop to chew on.
I needn’t have worried. We shared the Hansa’s Surprise – a set meal for four that includes starters, mains and desserts for £60. The food really was very good, considering there wasn’t any meat in sight. I couldn’t really tell you what we had because as quick as he brought it and told us about it, we scoffed if pretty fast! Highlight was a new dish that’s not on the menu yet – a kind of lentil version of a balti dish, very hot and good. The puffed up naan bread things were excellent too (they would be perfect with a lamb and spinach balti). The spices were delicately and accurately used and it all tasted very fresh and not cloying as it sometimes can be after a down market ruby.
