Review #25 Mirabai, Headington

To the Mirabai with new departmental chums for a getting-to-know-you curry. Booking wasn’t necessary on a quiet Wednesday evening but popadums were – mountains of ’em. And what a glorious array of chutneys to go with! Definitely a plus. But did we stop there? I shouldn’t bloody well think so.

Straight into the mains, no starters – mine was a prawn curry which went heavy on the mustard seed. Yum. In fact double yum, lovely big king prawns and a generous dollop of sauce. If only I’d got my own personal naan it would have been perfect. But that was my fault rather than the restaurant’s. A scattering of veggie sides, all good, and at a reasonable price.

Conversation flowed naturally, helped along by lashings of Kingfisher. After passing up dessert I said goodbye and got the last bus to London in a state of solid gut-full sleepy contentment.
