Quite right, Bob. Was aware of that as I wrote.
New Year's resolution: Add restaurant preferences to the long list of 'Everybody to their own'. Other items on the list include engine oil and coolant, tyres, and fuel, where it is virtually pointless to suggest what anyone should use, even if they have asked for advice.

Nor it seems the most appropriate solution for iptv... :lolno: :lolno:

So back to Indialucia. Anybody tried it yet?

So does the restaurant owner not mind that you take your own food items ( chutneys etc) ?

Yes. We thought some things were quite good, others not so good. The mango chutney (not thin and runny like some other restaurants serve) and lime pickle were both nice. Onion bhajis good, vegetable samosas nice but very small portion. Chicken jalfrezi I wasn't too keen on, vegtable madras was good. We usually order one portion of rice and one naan bread to share but here the portion of rice was rather small for sharing. the naan was good, not thick and doughy. We thought the menu was not as varied as Goa Town in Nerja which is our current favourite, although the prices at Indialucia are a bit lower.

Not so far, nor has anyone tried to charge me 'corkage'...

The couple of restaurants we use regularly are used to me now. One actually asked me where my jar of chutney was when I forgot it one time.

Personally I thought Taj in Torre was really poor, bland, tasteless and I could barely tell dishes apart. My opinion and I don't have to justify it. On the other hand I think some of the dishes at Jaipur or Buddha are excellent, fresh and as good as you'll get anywhere, including India where we spent a couple of months, and believe me some of the Indian food there was pretty poor whilst others were spectacularly good and a lot was mediocre.

Let's not go round and round yet again and leave thia thread as it is, comments on a new restaurant.


So you can have your say but we cant.

Absolutely not, you say as much as you wish to add, and don't interpret that as me giving you permission, which is just as crazy as your interpretation of my earlier post...

Bob,
Please look at Forum rule 7.1, first sentence.
'Yada yada yada' etc doesn't seem to be quite how to do it, nor is outright rubbishing of others' contributions.

Yada Yada Yada is simply an alternative to etc etc etc or so on and so on, all of which save a lot of typing and are in very common use both written and verbally.

I rubbished nobody's contribution. Especially when you, the author of the post to which I responded took it in good grace and in the spirit of which it was intended. Still can't figure how that post illicited the response that was posted, which BTW I found personally offensive. I added the rider to the post as I could see the sadly obvious response of 'I don't need your permission' being posted, hence the tongue in cheek attempt to preempt it.

If you think a post breaks forum rules the correct procedure is to report it, not to take it on yourself to be a moderator.

Farewell, everyone. Some good friends here, but the autocratic way this Forum is now run (What happened, Sid?) is now beyond the pail. If the Forum can't follow its own rules, then there is no future in it for me. You can sleep easy now - one less rational voice to deal with.

Please delete all 1356 of my posts.

Went to the restaurant yesterday for lunch.
Friendly owner, nice outside terrace for eating out on a warmer day.
Spacious inside.
Service good.
Fairly standard menu and about average prices.
Food was OK, nice tender chunks of lamb and nice soft nan breads.
To me the food was average, had better elsewhere.
Probably go again in warmer weather to sit outside but wouldn't go there just for the food.
Cheers
