Sauma is the best Indian restaurant in Northbridge and one of many prime two or three anyplace throughout the City – you’ll be able to all the time be assured of getting a top quality feed in properly turned out surrounds. To this finish we ended up there final week – we had been to an early film up the street and dropped in for dinner on our means again to the station.
We kicked off our meal with a few dishes from their Street Food choice, after which went on to a few off the small share plates on supply.
Bindas bonda – golf ball sized potato desserts flavoured with curry leaf and spices have been introduced in a crisply fried chick pea shell and drizzled with tangy chutney infused with peanuts, coconut and garlic – consolation meals extraordinaire.
A juicy tomato had been scooped out and full of a mixture of fetta, spinach, chilli and shortly roasted within the tandoor and plonked on a mattress of hung yoghurt – good flavour combo, mild and straightforward.
A plate of tender and moist squid, flavoured with chilli and char grilled was subsequent – served with crunchy recent slaw, sliced purple chilli, recent coriander and sultanas that had been plumped up with kewra water – imparting a candy fragrant word. Roasted cashew sauce completed it off. A stunning dish.
Finally, hen tikka – plump, juicy hen flavoured with mint and coriander which gave each a heady aroma in addition to shiny greenish hue, roasted within the tandoor and served with chilli, lemon and ginger sauce – scrumptious.
Our garlic naan was fairly good, too – doughy and charred – good garlic flavour and simply the factor for mopping up the sauces and accompaniments. The rice was, as you’d anticipate, nicely cooked.
Sauma continues to impress – serving excellent meals, with a on level choice of wines, beers and spirits – nice waiters, all the time pleasant and welcoming, wonderful location within the coronary heart of Northbridge – what’s to not like?
