Palki Indian Restaurant, Tin Hau

I am not a huge fan of Indian food, I would eat it once every six or twelve months. I was in India earlier this year and I think I reached my quota when I was there. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like Indian food; it’s just not my first choice of cuisine. I would rather eat something else.  I was a little surprised when Hubby suggested Indian food one evening, but considering I couldn’t come up with an alternative, Indian it was.

We have walked pass this restaurant a couple of times, and would peak to see how busy and authentic the food is. It’s always filled with diners and the décor is like most Indian restaurants I’ve been too – beading and embroided cloth piled neatly and hung from the ceiling. It wasn’t busy that night we went and we were seated immediately.

Started off with chicken tikka – which is Hubby’s favourite. The chicken tikka was served in a hot plate, it was smokey and the aroma was wonderful. However, it wasn’t as good as it smelt. The chicken was dry and the taste a little bland. It was rather disappointing.

We ordered a serving of goa fish curry. I love good fish curry, however, the fish was over cooked and dry. The curry was over powered with coconut milk – that was all I could really taste unfortunately.

The garlic naan was good! It was fresh, hot, garlicky and fantastic. This was definitely better than the chicken tikka and curry. It was a little oily but tasty.

When in India, my friend, R, introduced me to poori – which is deep fried Indian bread. It’s usually the size of your palm, but the poori served that evening was as big as the garlic naan. The poori was crispy, light, and although oily it was as good as I remembered it!

Hubby ordered a glass of mango lassi, it wasn’t the best mango lassi – it was really sweet and I couldn’t really taste the mango to be honest.

The garlic naan and the poori were the two things I enjoyed most. The service was good, and waiters tentative, however, the meal overall was extremely disappointing. I think the food in India was definitely better (of course!) and the best Indian restaurant I’ve been too is Surjit’s Indian Restaurant in Annandale, Sydney.

Where is your favourite Indian restaurant? So I know where to go if and when Hubby craves for it again!
