Tonight I had the delight of eating at Mezbaan South Indian Restaurant in Brougham Street, Tollcross.
I had wanted to try this place for ages and found that an author of a blog I read had eaten there and loved it, therefore I was sold. Her post about Mezbaan is HERE. Thanks Alice
All food served is halal and it’s BYOB
For starters we had – King Prawn Mango Puree Puffy whole wheat bread with prawns cooked in mango sauce. £6.50
My friend said it was simply divine ! I am allergic to shellfish, so couldn’t try it It was a very reasonably sized portion for a starter.
Murgh Mirch Kebab
Breast of spring chicken de-boned, then marinated in yoghurt tandoori spices coated with a sweet chilli sauce and cooked in tandoor. £4.95
I absolutely loved this starter – so flavoursome (with a wee kick to it) and again, good sized portion. Thankfully we were served a jug of iced water to help cool down my throat
For mains we had,
Alphonso Chicken Delicately spiced ﬁllet of chicken cooked in mild cream and smooth mango sauce. £9.95
Lamb Kotyam Lamb marinated in yoghurt overnight, with desiccated coconut and cooked in lentils. £9.95 with plain paratha and steamed rice.
Having had a starter, the rice was big enough for 2 people. The mango chicken was simply wonderful I could have eaten 2 more dishes of the stuff. The chicken was soft and tender nad has to be one of my all time favourite dinner dishes, which is saying something !
The lamb dish was also wonderful, stimulating all parts of my palate ! It wasn’t spicy, just really flavoursome and the lentils worked well.
I really had no room left for dessert, so didn’t look at the menu to see what was on offer.
I am torn between my usual Indian restaurant – Pataka at Causewayside and this new one to my list. Their menus are different, so I will be alternating in the future to work my way through the menu at Mezbaan The food is highly recommended from me.
Suitable for disabled ? The restaurant is on ground level, but unfortunately the toilets are down a steep set of stairs.
