Sree Krishna claims to be the oldest South Indian restaurant in South Indian (1973). Sick of Tandoori and other northern Indian specialities we headed there for a breath of fresh curry.

Never…I repeat never...venture to Sri Krishna if you’re starving to the point of murder or in a huge rush to catch the latest Bollywood extravaganza. You will wait…not because it’s busy…I’m not even sure of the reason. The extraordinary wait tends to occur between the starters and main course.

For starters I like the Masala Dosai (rice and lentil flour pancake filled with potato masala)…light and delicate served with a delicious light curry side. ₤3.50

I have a feeling they specialize mainly in vegetarian food although they do serve a wide range of meat and seafood curries. Their vegetarian curries were fresh, with a bite and best of all, not languishing in oil. One of the few Indian restaurant I can get my intake of essential “5 a day”without worrying about limp, over-nuked veges.

The Lamb biriyani ₤5.50 is a must. Not a huge fan before, now I see the light and am converted. So rich and flavoursome, clearly made with care and attention…generous in tender pieces of lamb. A meal in itself and a dish worth fighting over for.

It was reassuring to see that our experience was endorsed by a number of large Indian families enjoying themselves as well. Even better that nearly all the dishes are alarmingly good value. For four of us with lassi, we clocked up just over ₤12 per person and were thoroughly stuffed, sleepy and satisfied.
