Eating Out: Indian Kitchen, Cleethorpes
I AM a huge fan of curries and I have never tried Indian Kitchen – so I thought it was about time I tried this popular venue.
The former champagne bar was heaving when we arrived, so we were glad we booked a table in advance.
As we arrived, we were shown to our table, which was a little too near the bar for our preference, but as we watched people arriving throughout the night and waiting for seats to become available, we were glad of it all the same.
The atmosphere was great, so are expectations were high for the food, too.

There was also a candle lit on our table to add a little bit of romance.
We ordered our drinks and sipped them while choosing from the extensive, but delicious sounding menu.
After a very hard decision, I opted for Chicken Shalima Karahi (£7.95) and my partner decided to go for Chicken Nawabi Khana (£7.95), accompanied by two pilau rice (£3.90) and a plain naan (£1.95).
And, of course, a proper curry wouldn’t be right without poppadoms and a pickle tray (£4.20).
With a rumble in our stomachs we couldn’t wait to start, and shortly afterwards the poppadoms arrived.
The pickle tray looked divine and there was so much choice. Every pickle was tasty – though the mango chutney was my favourite.
There was also an unusual onion pickle, with some kind of red sauce mixed with it, which was delicious.
After filling a small hole in our stomachs, our mains soon came out. The waiter was very smiley and helpful, regularly asking us if we required top-ups.
My dish was slightly spiced, with a touch of cream and the chicken tasted very fresh. The tasty, soft naan bread was great to mop up the sauce.
The pilau rice was not as spicy as usual, but was still quite tasty.
My partner’s Chicken Nawabi Khana was a complex curry with 21 ingredients... and while it was very tasty, he said you couldn’t taste all the spices.
However, the chicken was very tender and nicely spiced with a roasted blend of herbs.
Overall, Indian Kitchen was a fun venue to be in, with a party atmosphere.
The food was delicious, the service was excellent and there were plenty of staff, who are all more than happy to help.
