Great warm summer day to be out on the patio for lunch. I ordered the Chana Masala and Roddy ordered the Chicken Tandoori with yogurt mint sauce (only served on Fridays). Our order included soup, salad and palao rice.

I dined in Curry Original, walking from a nearby hotel to escape hotel food. The service was friendly and quick, and my veggie samosas and butter chicken both were just right. I will definitely eat there again.
