An Indian restaurant that serves its food tapas style had an appeal to us, and as it had received positive reactions from plenty of people we decided to go there. The fact that it was close to where we were staying was an added bonus.
Its a deceptive restaurant as it has two rooms. The back room filled up quickly then they started using the tables in the entry room. We certainly couldn't fault the service which was extremely attentive throughout the entire meal
We started with some popdoms and dipping sauces. The spiced onions were lovely with a nice tang to them. This contrasted well with the sweeter mango chutney. We devoured both of them with the popadoms.
So it was the word bhaji that actually convinced me to order this dish. As you can see from the picture they weren't fritters nor was there any batter.
Nevertheless, the flavours were good though and it tasted really nice. We both enjoyed it.
Fortunately the fish pieces in this dish were not overcooked and dry. They still had their texture and moisture. The serving size was good as well.
The rice was nice and light. There was a subtle lemon flavour to it and certainly plenty of cashew pieces.
I'm still not sure about it though. It certainly was nice but it was possibly not the greatest rice though.
All in all Mother India Cafe is well worth visiting.
