A truly long-awaited delightful experience. Delectable food and company, topped off with the personable, elegant service and non-invasive attention of the proprietor and his chef wife. Her North Indian food is made from scratch using only the best ingredients which is evidenced in the delectable quality and excellence of the dishes served up. The ambiance is intimate, relaxed and delightful. Suitable for couples, friends and family, although for business the tables could be a bit close together. Being lunchtime, we started with the Masala Fried Fish (Kingklip) and Paneer Tikka which was more than enough for the four of us. We each ordered a main which we shared among us all: Chicken Tikka Masala; Lamb Rogan Josh; Goa Fish (Norwegen Salmon) & Prawn; Crayfish Vindaloo and a dish made up especially for us - mushroom and corn in tomato curry (this was the one i liked least). All served with pomegranate raita and tomato/onion sambals a little Basmati rice, Puri, garlic & coriander Naan, and Pershwari Naan which I've never had before and am now addicted to. A far cry from the commercial tastes and aloofness of the more well-known curry joints in CT like Bihari, Bukhara and even the little place in Cavendish which used to be great but since it changed hands has also served up the same commercial paste-tasting, over-sugared 'slush' as these others - none are as delicious as they were and don't come close to this authentic little gem. If you want excellent authentic freshly prepared Indian cuisine, Annapurna is the only place to go in CT if you are indeed a curry connoisseur! Will definitely be back even though it is quite a drive away. But, worth it! (We had two desserts to share. But, if you are like me and are not mad about Indian desserts, if you are lucky enough to find the little Parisian bakery next door open, grab a dessert from there... )
