On Friday 7th June 2019, we bought three takeaway dishes from JK in Indooroopilly. Our order comprised a Lamb Biryani, and two curries, namely, a Chicken Balti (medium spiciness), and a Lamb Jardaloo Boti (medium spiciness).
The Lamb Biryani was splendid. The lamb pieces were tender and well-marinated, and the cucumber raita complemented the biryani very well. Each of the two curries came with a tub of cooked white rice. The Chicken Balti cooked with onions and tomatoes had a distinctive spicy flavour. The Lamb Jardaloo Boti was slightly less spicy with a delicate flavour of apricots and tomatoes. All three dishes were quite enjoyable.
Given our penchant for spicy Indian dishes, we were not particularly keen on the popular Lamb Rojan Josh or the ubiquitous Butter Chicken on their lunch specials, catered to Western palettes. Neither are we fans of the Glasgow-hybridised Chicken Tikka Masala.
We fondly remember this restaurant when it used to be Ashoka Exotic Curries some decades ago. By and large the layout has not changed greatly from when we used to dine here as a family all those years back. Despite the somewhat tawdry appearance of the restaurant presently, we must say that the takeaways that we bought from JK were a delight to our taste buds. Well worth the long wait and given that that we were the only customers that hour.
