Lime pickle is always in stock but I think it might seriously destroy the subtlety of a murgi shajahani. It's more an addition to a good thali which I don't cook very often because it takes practically all day and leaves me no time for indiamike.com!
What a long strange trip it's been!

Lahore Kebab House.

Or should I say Ďthe legendaryí Lahore Kebab House.

This place is awesome and if you like Punjabi food it would be criminal to pass through London and not try it.

I normally spend £10-12 (they do not serve alcohol but allow you to take your own).

Iíve been told the Pakistan Cricket team eat here when they are playing in London and I can believe it.

Although it probably seats about 65 people; you will still have to queue outside at busy times (especially weekends)

The address is:

2 Umberston Street, (off Commercial Road, by the junction of New Road), Closest underground stations are Whitechapel, Aldgate East, Bus number 15.

Beware of imitations; many places nearby have similar names to try to confuse people.

Just checked in on one of my local resturants and in a desperate attempt to keep from going out of business they have become an all KOSHER Indian resturant to try to appeal to the very large Hasidic population.

Hey! thank you Midnite Toker for the Vienna Restaurant.
I'm going to Vienna for the next weekend and I will try the Vego.
My favourite Indian Restaurant in my hometown in Munich is called Maharani at the Baldeplatz. There is another one in the Rottmannstrasse but I prefer the Maharani at the Baldeplatz. It has the "normal" northindia menu (like all indian restaurant in Munich), but very fine and delicate veggie food. Great Koftas! and a very very nice atmosphere with wonderful furnishing (very basic only a few fine statues) and the best: Great indian chilling-music! It's more a kind of lounge (okay not really a lounge like they are in clubs) where you can eat and relax.
Try it if you are in Munich.

btw: is it the one you are working Paan Wallah?

sorry I forgot... to say that the prices for the meals in indian restaurants in Munich are very high. Thats why I only going there sometimes, I'm always getting angry, especially when I'm back from India

For example:

- palak paneer around 10 euro
- chicken tandoori 14 euro
- simple dal 8 euro
- mutton vindaloo 14 - 16 euro

but it comes with rice *ha ha

If you need the accurate prices I will go there and take a menu card with me.

not really..the one i m working in is more german cuisine,a bit mixed with french and italian),ranging from rahmschnitzel,gefillde with sauerkraut,steaks,seasonal specialtites like asparagus,lot s of fish dishes,buffets and everthing the customers want me to cook...
sometimes I do some indian or thai food for our stuff but they don t seem to like indian food very much
my boss,different story,she freaks out when i m eating with my fingers indian style,always trying to give me a fork or knive..
but then I just say god gave me fingers to eat

I guess it ll be a big problem to find another cook when i go on travelling ,
but India is a bit more exciting then working every week end

Are there any areas of Munich that have a large amount of Indians, Pakistanis or Bangladeshis?

These are the areas where you normally get cheap (and superior) Indian food.

The best places (IMHO) tend to be the Cafe style places that look more like kebab shops than restaurants.

A good rule if you go to find a restaurant in this kind of area, if a place has more than 40 items on the menu (including rice, breads and deserts) donít eat there.

The place I go for Indian food is about an hour away...as is almost everything!

Jaipur Junction in North Royalton, Ohio.

Great food and reasonable prices as well. If you go for the lunch specials you get 2 veggie dishes, rice, raita, papadum and a naan all for around 6 USD.
They have a great all you can eat buffet on the weekends for under 10 USD.
They have great food and are always very busy.

Wishing I had an iced coffee now~

It seems that 8 of these have opened in a 4-block radius in San Francisco, just outside the theater district. I've eaten at two of the places, and they were very good -- though the food was so hot that I could see flames coming out of my ears. You can read the reviews at www.sfgate.com (Food section).

Edsita, I don't believe they were trying to cover Berkeley, just the Tenderloin....

I will try to check out Chaat Cafe one of these days. My favorite is still Al-Hamra on 16th between Valencia and Mission (a few doors from Pancho Villa).

I had the most wonderful takeaway from my local Indian (the Raj, Darby Street, Newcastle) on Friday night. Aloo paratha, made by the Indian chef before my very eyes (the kitchen is open to the eating area) - soft, buttery, stuffed with spicy potato and sprinkled with fresh coriander. With that I had a tender piece of chicken tikka with a yoghurt/mint sauce, mixed pickles, and a delicious thick mango lassi. It came to about AUD$12. You can have a lovely chicken curry and rice for AUD$6 there.

I recommend the Maya Indian Restaurant in Surrey Hills, Sydney for masala dosa. Their prices are cheap too, great Indian food and sweets.

Glasgow Winner of Best City in UK for a Curry

Basically Glasgow has dominated the best curry awards in Britain for a few years now and the sdandard across the board is excellent

A few to look for ...
The Ashoka
Shish Mahal,
Creme de la Creme,
Mr Singh's India

and my personal favourite the vegetarian restaurant Balbir's in Hyndland

So if any of you are passing through Glasgow and fancy a curry I hope this helps you avoid the deep fried marsbars

Chez Panisse in Berkeley. Owner/Chef Alice Waters is an icon for me (I'm a personal chef). Her use of fresh/organic/seasonal/local ingredients has influenced a generation of chefs. It's not cheap;, and it can take up to a month to get a table, but it is worth the wait.
And then there's Tommy's, in the 6000 block of Geary (San Francisco). Food is Mexican/Mayan/Central American; the food is good, but the margaritas rock! Getting a table is easy, but trying to get to the bar on a Friday or Saturday night is another matter. Bon appetite!
