comment Pickles were tasty but small portions (although we did get free top ups).
Thirsa starter was tasty and appetising, although the mussels were a little overcooked. Well presented though, and novel.
Karahi Ghost was excellent - well cooked with distinctive flavours. Can't fault the sides either.
Attentive service and nice decor and ambience.

comment The pre-starters were let down by the small pickle portions - very tasty otherwise, although I didn't get to try the spiced onions. The lamb kebab starter was very tasty if a little dry and it was nice to get dressing on the salad. Dissapointed that there was no quail available. I really enjoyed the chicken shakuti - it's refreshing to get a genuinely hot dish although again, the meat was a little dry. Side dishes were fairly average but no complaints. The service was far too slow considering it wasn't busy.

comment Good feed all round. Chocolate nan worked really well, as did the chilli rice - nice to see some novel stuff. The mango lassi was outstanding.
On to the kismot killer: it was insane. My whole body was tingling from the endorphines. I couldn't speak because my toungue was numb. It is quite possibly the hottest curry ever. Can't say I'd recomend it, unless I was feeling sinister, but it was a unique experience.

Salmon tikka was good, but below expectation.

Main course & sides were exceptional. Meat cooked to perfection.
