Tonight we headed out for dinner with my little sister Lynette and her husband Ian. Being a Wintry night, we decided a good curry wouldn't go amiss, so headed to Ian's recommended Indian restaurant, Jaipur. The beauty of eating out with four of you, is that with a shared meal in the centre of the table we were able to enjoy four curries. So it was Palak Paneer, Lamb Biryani, Butter Prawns and a not on the menu item called 'Cry Chicken'. I have no idea where the name comes from or what it means.
We had a lovely dinner, and it was a good opportunity to chew the fat. Well there obviously wasn't much fat in our meals, so a chance to catch up. We were there for about 3 hours in total? When we were leaving the owner came out, and actually mentioned how nice it was to see us sitting there, taking our time and indulging in the food slowly and having a good conversation. He said it isn't something he sees very often, as people usually dash in and dash out. He really appreciated our actions. Although as we commented after we left, he may think differently on an extremely busy night when four people are hogging a table for three hours! This was a Monday night and the restaurant was by no means full to capacity, but definitely had a lot of comings and goings.
So for those of you in Hamilton or surrounds who enjoy good quality Indian food (and the meal here rates up there among my favourties to return to), all four of us can definitely recommend Jaipur Indian Restaurant, at the north end of Victoria Street.
