Exotikka of India

Having read the reviews on this site I decided to give it a try. We found the place a little dull, there was certainly no atmosphere. The restaurant was almost empty but they still refused to let us sit at a larger table away from the bar, they said the table was booked but there was only one other group of 4 all the time we were there.

The food was ok but generally the standard boring choice that always tastes the same, as usual at Indians these days the starters were significantly better than the mains. The portions were small and the food was not particularly hot. indicating to me that it had probably been warmed up rather than cooked from fresh ingredients.

I can't complain about the cost, it is genuinley cheap £40 for two with wine. I'm still looking for a good Indian Restaurant experience that serves freshly made traditional Indian cuisine with some character. It's been a long search at a wide range of establishments from the ones that charge £10 for water to those that feed you for £10 all in.
