C&R Cafe Restaurant

Other customers seemed to have more interesting looking dishes, but our meal was frankly very disappointing.

Not good choice for vegetarians - very few vegetarian options on the menu, and one that was tasted suspiciously fishy. All food was produced at once, rather than starters first, main course after, despite specifically requesting starter first. The stir-fried vegetables had not been stir-fried, but were exactly the same as the vegetable sauce for the noodles. The peanut sauce was not very peanutty at all!

I have been to this restaurant a dozen times at least, and apart from not being able to get a table one busy Saturday evening, have always enjoyed my meal.

The Dahi Puri starter is too delicious for me to risk not ordering it. For the main dish I usually go for one of the daily 'specials', which you'll need to ask the waiter about. The Sunday aubergine special is also good. And they can also do masala tea which seems pretty unusual these days.
