What was the cannibal DJ’s favourite Smiths’ song? Girlfriend in a korma.
Oh come on. That’s comic gold, right there. Old comic gold, right enough but still…
Forget about mining the depths of curry/song title crossovers because we have hit jackpot gold with today’s Big Deal at Punjabi Tadka (Atrium Court) in East Kilbride.
The Indian restaurant has been under new ownership since last year and EK’s curry fans love it. We’ve put a couple of customer comments below but TBH, we could have listed pages of them.
Does that whet your appetite? Well, today’s Big Deal is a for a three course meal for two people.
It includes a choice of starter and main course accompanied by three sundries followed by the special house tablet ice cream or that all time favourite Indian dessert, gulab jamin with ice cream.
Spice-loving Big Deal buddies have free rein of the starters and the main course on the a la carte menu although there is a supplement on the seafood and tandoori dishes.
We could try to tempt you in by describing the individual dishes but you can check the full menu here.
We will just say that all the old Indian favourites you would expect are there along with the occasional interesting detour from the beaten track.
That’s enough blether from us. This is what the customers have to say. Echoing many 5pm customer reviews, this is what John Russell reckoned after a visit in August:
‘Very fresh, tasty food. Best pakora yet!’ Rating 5/5
