“The only thing I like better than talking about food is eating”
The Christmas banquet at ‘4550 Miles from Delhi’
This month Alison reviewed 4550 Miles from Delhi in Nottingham City Centre.
The Journey to Delhi
An Indian cuisine is probably not your typical ‘family/child friendly restaurant’ of choice but we were kindly invited to sample the Christmas menu at 4550 Miles from Delhi. Thankfully, it only took approx. 15 minutes. No passports required.
The Christmas Banquet
‘Christmas Menu’ – not the typical roast potatoes, turkey, Brussels sprouts and trimmings. If you’re a big fan of Indian food, then this will add magic (and spice) to your Christmas.
We were showered with delicious, crispy poppadum’s on arrival. My son, daughter and husband munched through all of it leaving me with the crumbs!
The mixed platter was surprisingly filling and very spicy. The lamb chop was delicious but was too char-coaled for my liking. Shame my son couldn’t eat the king prawns as he loves them, but they were the spiciest item on the menu – my husband didn’t even break a sweat. The kids couldn’t have any starters, so we asked for the butter chicken and steamed rice to arrive sooner. I was impressed by the fresh garlic naan bread, which my daughter scoffed up too.
Friendly and cosy atmosphere. Just a shame they don’t open during lunch time as 5:30pm was late for us as a family.
As you can expect it’s not a typical ‘child friendly’ restaurant as they don’t serve a kid’s menu. But not to say you can’t order side dishes or let the kids munch off a mild curry. They do serve chips, but we didn’t order any.
If you love Indian food then this is one of the best in Notts, I would say. However, if your children are not used to eating Indian food then the experience would not be as great. Fortunately, both my kids have had mild Indian food – such as korma and butter chicken. But that’s as far as it gets. Not forgetting the naan bread and poppadoms.
The restaurant provides highchairs and some space for prams, but the clientele is largely for adults, couples, students and older family members.
Overall, staff were friendly and helpful. My daughter didn’t have a meltdown so that was a bonus. I would love to eat here again but minus the children, if I get the chance!
