This was a curry club with a difference. Actually this wasn't a curry night, instead it was a date night with my better half. Off we went to Nurjenna in Southgate for a romantic curry.
Assuming that you have read the interview with the owner of Nurjenna, please take a peek below at the review of the food.
Sometimes I think I know my audience well and what they want. Today I think that my mass audience do not want a wordy blog review, but instead a few pictures and some thoughts on the food.
Sheekh kebab: a hearty portion of lamb, well seasoned and went perfectly into my naan as a roll.
Chicken Tikka: the star of the starters. Zingy, juicy and tender
Lamb Tikka: not as good as the chicken and a bit tougher.
With the naan and the condiments these were a good starter. To be honest the portion sizes were very generous and I could already feel a defeat coming up; especially with the fact we had ordered three main courses between two people.
Lamb Shank: What a site it was. Completely covered in veg, cooked perfectly and just fell off the bone. Wanted more herbs and spices to give it an extra kick.
Fish Tandoori: Amazing - spiced delicately and the red colour made it looked perfect too. Flaked off and was so lovely. No butter, full of flavour- do order
Butter Chicken: probably the star of the main courses. Nutty flavours with the right amount of spice. Creamy and meaty at the same time- sounds like a good combo and it was.
We ordered this along with a portion of rice and naan too.
This was definitely enough food for four people and we were happy to eat this the next day for lunch too. Both times we needed a rest and breather as we were so stuffed. Generous portions sizes and quality food, Nurjenna is a must for North Londoners. It is a different vibe to the usual Indian, and the ambience, staff and service will make you feel very welcome.
Thanks to everyone at Nurjenna. See you soon.
