As you regular readers know I really like Chaakoo, and I have been there a many times.

You can see all my other reviews by doing a search, but tonights visit I decided to keep my promise and try different dishes…ok well I had one that I have had before but the rest was all new.

Tandoori King Prawn £9
King prawns steeped in our house smoked tandoori rub, flash flamed on the robata grill and garnished in citrus lemon.

When this arrived I though “oh” as part of me though it was presented in a shell and I am not a fan of that but I was very happy to see no shell

This was very nice, the King Prawn was very meaty and the flavour was really good. The meat wasn’t chewy, and the flavour was was just right.

I tried it with and without the sauce, but personally its perfect without but its all down to your own personal taste.

I would have this again.

Machali £4.95
Fish pakora in a coriander & green chilli batter.

I was a little disappointed with this dish, the main reason I was expecting a lot of flavour but for me it tasted just like Fish Fingers.

Don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with Fish Fingers, but it was just an OK dish for me.

Saag Paneer £5.95 (V)
A classic jalfrezi dish of spiced spinach, studded with cubes of creamy fried paneer cheese.

I decided that I still had room for some more so I opted to try this dish.

I am so glad I did.

This was a very nice dish, and I am regretting not having it sooner (thats if its been on the menu and I have missed it…or recently added).

I would and will have this next time and again and again! I might even order two on my next visit.

So! I normally have a Mango Lassi but I thought lets try another one today.

It was ok, the pineapple flavour was nice and the texture was ok.

Little disappointed but glad I tried something new, I think I will stay with the Mango Lassi.

Flavour : 4

Overall :

Overall another very good visit, I am very glad I tried a lot of new dishes and I will 10000% have the Mango and Banana Crumble.

Every time I come here I am very relaxed and always have a good meal, if you haven’t tried here yet please do give it a visit.
