Well, it was coming to an end to our trip down under, and I had not really spent much time with my sister while over here.
So big brother Lee decided to take her out for a curry lunch. Neither of us had, had a curry for a long while. Especially Abbie, who hadn’t been for a curry in years because no one else in the family like them (honestly, I do wonder sometimes).
A short drive (by Australian terms) to Ipswich, Queensland. Parked up, and headed into the Indian Mehfil. Given one of the higher ratings for restaurants in the area, we had to give it a go.
It was dead, only one other table. We had to stand at the counter to be seated for what seemed like forever. I had looked at the menu beforehand and found they have a lunch menu. After being sat, I realised that they had not given us the lunch menu (naughty little waitress).
Now we had been given all the menus available. We both decided to eat from this lunch menu. It wasn’t a set menu, but it was a menu with items that were slightly cheaper than the standard menu.
So, our order went as thus.
- Lamb rogan josh with rice, and
- Garlic naan,
- Butter chicken with rice,
- Plain naan,
- Popadoms, and a
- A glass of coke (which was $4 for a small glass)
We both shared a mixed platter from the starter menu. This consisted of meat samosas, onion bajias, chicken tikka (bone on), and chicken tikka (off the bone).
I must admit, the food was really good. As always though, I ordered too much Indian than I could handle in the one sitting. But oh well, it was nice to see the awkward waitress try and box it up at our table.
