i've been craving a great indian meal for ages (especially when i read my friends post here) so when kev and i decided to go out for dinner on friday we thought it could only be one thing... CURRY!
as you would expect i see so many traditional austrian restaurants in vienna and there are tons of italians/pizzerias and also quite a few asian restaurants (although i find it bizarre that they mostly offer japanese, thai and chinese food all in the same restaurant??!) but i've really not noticed many indian restaurants. i did however pass one (zum moghulhof on burggasse) during my wandering on thursday so we decided to go there without looking up any reviews beforehand.
now i'm not going to lie, the food wasn't quite up to what i would expect from an indian back in the UK, but i did enjoy it and i would return (but try some different dishes).
for starter i ordered some onion rings (yes, onion rings) but they were tasty and came with a lovely side dip (no onion bhaji on the menu). kev had a meat samosa which was also nice but not like samosas that i've eaten before. stupidly i forgot to take pictures (i was too busy enjoying my cobra beer and laughing at kev when he tried one of the chutneys/pickles and started to cry because it was so hot!).
for main i chose a lamb bhuna which didn't taste like a bhuna i know but again i did like it. kev had another lamb dish which unfortunately we can't remember the name of (a dish we hadn't heard of before) but i think it tasted better than my bhuna. and we ordered a garlic naan but they forgot it!
all in all i did enjoy the meal... the restaurant had a nice atmosphere... the staff were friendly... the service was pretty good (apart from them forgetting our naan but still trying to charge us for it!) but mostly it was just great to taste some indian flavours. oh, and the cobra beer was AWESOME!
still craving a chicken dansak though.... !
