Another trip to the theatre called for another meal out! Last night we headed to Kama Sutra on Sauchiehall Street to take advantage of their very reasonably priced pre-theatre menu. At £10.95 for two courses, it certainly isn’t going to leave you penniless, but how would the food be at this price? Well, I can say with all honesty that, in this case, low price equalled high quality.
A sucker for Chicken Pakora, I enjoyed four succulent, moist pieces of meat coated in a lightly spiced, crispy coating. Dad tucked into huge, crunchy Onion Bhajis, whilst mum enjoyed the Mixed Pakora – a plate consisting of two chicken, two vegetable and one haggis pakora. All three dishes were served with a creamy yet spicy sauce and a small salad – and all were very tasty indeed.
Mum and I then enjoyed Lamb Dopiaza, and dad a Lamb Bhoona. Between us we shared two pilau rice, one plain naan and one garlic naan. The two naan breads were huge, smothered in butter with the perfect ratio of crispy and soft bread. Admittedly, mum found the dopiaza to be a little too hot for her tastes, but I enjoyed the warm glow which it provided. The lamb in all three dishes was tender and perfectly cooked, soaking up the tasty sauces with ease.
While mum would definitely order differently next time, we all agreed that we would happily return to Kama Sutra, whether it be to make use of the pre-theatre menu or to sample from the à la carte.
