I had a hankering for an Indian takeaway tonight and was given the usual choice in Ely between The Sylhet and Le Spice.
I think both restaurants are superb in their own right but I couldn’t help but feel like The Sylhet was going to offer me the consistency, reliability, and service I was looking for.
I was interested in trying the new Indian Garden 2 in Fordham as we were driving through but they wouldn’t answer my calls.
I’ve been meaning to do a full blown review of The Sylhet since the start of the new blog as it’s one of my favourite restaurants in the city. Unfortunately, a takeaway will have to do for now but watch this space in the future.
What I love about The Sylhet is that it gets everything done right and is consistent in doing so. You can visit without having to worry about the quality of the food or the service provided by the team.
Upon visiting the food was still being prepared so I had a friendly chin wag with the staff at the bar. They were kind enough to offer me some superb and very meaty complimentary onion bhajis. They were a good size and a great taste!
I ordered saag aloo to bulk out our meal. It’s the perfect side to go in a curry. The saag aloo was a great portion and the perfect addition to the meal.
My chicken tikka vindaloo with saag aloo and mushroom rice was superb. Hot, full of flavour, and generous portions. As it should be.
My boy thoroughly enjoyed his curry and there wasn’t a single mark left on the plate. I’ve seen dishes come out of the dish washer with more sauce left on the plate!
The Sylhet Indian restaurant proves once again that it’s the reliable choice. I’ve never heard a bad word said about the restaurant and I can’t see it happening in the future.
