"Breads - their taking the rise!"
Date of Visit: Friday 16th December 2016 - 7:00pm

The first thing that struck me, was the hike in the price of the Chapattis... Wow! - £1.50 for just the one! Desi Roti in Doncaster town centre charge a mere 50p !

With Naans at £2.50 and up to £3.50 for a "speciality", it's obvious that they'd rather you order rice from the big pot that sits in the corner of the kitchen. All they have to do with rice is bang it in the microwave for 20 seconds or so... with the breads, they are much more labour intensive and hard work.

I lost interest after this.

The Mixed Kebab Starter (3/5) was ok. The samosa was weak, and i guess bought in. The sheekh kebab wasn't spicy enough for my liking. The onion bhaji was the best of the three.
The Mixed Bhaji Starter (4/5) was scored a tad higher than the MK by Old Ironguts.

The Chicken Biryani (3/5) could have done with a wee bit less rice and a tad more chicken and sauce. The Chicken Balti (4/5) was reported as being fine.

Breadgate means that I doubt if I will return here for a while.

Merry Christmas and all the best in 2017.
