Had the stewy pot thing in CN. £15 for as much as you can eat of lamb, prawns, squid, agarics, mushrooms, fishballs of different types, pork stuff (like spam), tripe, etc. You get this boiling pot like a fondue and five plates of stuff that you cook yourself in either regular or spicy sauce. When you finish something they bring you more. Worth having if you've not eaten in two days. Didn't really manage to get into the extra plates but two nearby (probably starving?) Chinese customers where, I think, on their third round of lamb.

Lamb with ground chilli is worth having, it is not as hot as it sounds.

When I lived briefly in Cardiff we got to know a couple of local gourmets. They took us out on a couple of occassions to special places and the food was simply wonderful. Sorry, can't remember names, it was a good few years ago but there are some great places to eat in Cardiff.

Tried Mehfil in City Road. Good to go somewhere that's not good to appreciate other places around. It'a free buffet type of no-alcohol-allowed place. Meat curry should be relaunched as bone curry. Spinach chicken burnt and dry. Drinks service very slow (so much so that one of the guys had pretty much finished his main course by when his drink ordered forty minutes earlier was brought out). No highlights.

He's also asking which is better, Albany Fish Bar or The Codfather. I somehow replied CN. Anybody else thinks that the quality of the AFB has gone down in the last year? Or that Snoop should have chicken, chips and curry instead of fried chicken?

Cafe Madras in City Road. Good, snacky Indian. Lots of vegetarian choice, their king fish is good. The menu sort of forces you towards having a dosa as a main, but not necessarily. Lots of dumplings, soups, and tasty starters. No chicken tikkas, rogon joshes, baltis or anything similar on sight. Also, you can bring your own booze.
