I've heard Kitchen Samrat's curries criticised for having too much gravy and not enough meat, but I love the fact they are really saucy. (And yeah, I know I just gave you a lecture about 'curries' and too much sauce, but just like I love proper Cantonese food, sometimes only a steamed dimmie in a paper bag will do!) They have some unusual touches, like mini chick-pea puffs in the raita to add an interesting texture. The times I've eaten in, I've been given a complimentary appetiser, a little glass of spicy tamarind water. They are super-friendly and they are becoming more widely known - I'm glad their persistence is paying off!
