Now I've never been to the Bombay Brasserie in South Kensington (extortionate rent in London can sometimes bite into the old eating out budget) but I've only heard good things about it and a friend reliably informs me it's a favourite venue for stars such as Tom Cruise. Opening the box up, I realised that even my mammoth appetite for curry would not cope with the meal on its own so I quickly invited a mate and his girlfriend round to test it with me. The whole meal was piping hot and ready to serve by the time they arrived 30 minutes later. Both the main dishes, Chicken Tikka Makhani and Chicken Pista Korma, took 25 minutes to cook in the oven, while Mushroom Xacuti (mushrooms and Goan Xacuti masala made with coconut and spices) took less. The two rice dishes ­ Dhansak and Lemon with Cashew Nuts ­ just required a quick blast in the microwave and the two naan breads were just right after five minutes in the oven. This is home cooking at its easiest but with a taste to match. Our favourite was the juicy Chicken Tikka with succulent large pieces of breast going down a treat, although it only beat the Pista Korma by two votes to one. The rice was also very tasty although my mate's girlfriend moaned that there wasn't enough. The £10.99 price tag would fail to deter me from a repeat purchase. It may sound expensive but this is good stuff. {{P&P }}
