Our takeaway tonight was better than any Indian takeaway I’ve ever had elsewhere, inc London/Melbourne/NYC.
We just ducked in for a simple takeaway (butter chicken, lamb madras, garlic naan, rice $48.50) and were thrilled to discover all the dishes were absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked.
The butter chicken sauce was rich, the chicken beautifully cooked in the tandoor for texture and flavour. The lamb madras was so tasty, with coconut and curry leaves, and large tender chunks of slow cooked lamb. Naan was fluffy and generously sized. My only critique is I dislike whole spices in the rice (don’t enjoy biting down on a cardamom pod).
Overall we were extremely impressed and I can’t wait to go back for a banquet — looking forward to trying all the other menu items!
The restaurant staff member who took our order was friendly and helpful and called us when our order was ready so we could wander over to check out the Night Market while we waited.
Devonport is very lucky to have such a good new Indian restaurant and I hope SK’s continues with this high standard.
