Food: Moti Mahal Click for more info

A need for pre-karaoke dinner took us to this smart little Indian place in Covent Garden. Clean, well seated and spaced and nicely staffed, there wasn't much to complain about pre-food. It was the little touches like being given water and a soup appetizer without having to ask for them that sold me.

Food-wise it got even better. We were on one of those cheapo set menu deal things, but I felt that we had a good set of options anyway. Despite the place claiming to be Halal, I stuck to the vegetarian options (mainly for other reasons); not that I minded much since the potato pastry for starters and vegetable kofta for the main were superb anyway. The pear tart with ice cream was also an awesome bonus.

All in all a fantastic place to eat given the £15 bill we paid; so much so that I can imagine heading back in future. Recommended.
