Tried 6 flavours on Friday which is on city road. Nice home style indian food. Very much in the style of punitha's and sounds similar to cafe madras, lots of dosa and lovely veggie dishes.

been meaning to try that too, sounds good
do they sell samosas from the counter or do you have to order properly and wait?
thanks

Selling samoas ready made from the counter? Do cafe madras do that? How very dangerous , I'd have to pick a few up each time I passed!
They had a hot counter at the front but it was empty, they used it to put my meals in when they were ready whilst waiting for my chappatis. Maybe they fill it during lunch times, that's when they seem to have the most customers eating in?

nooo, Cafe Madras don't or yes that would be very dangerous!
just wondered as i haven't found an authentic place that does that in Cardiff
you'd think there would be one!

Went to the Potted Pig on High Street in Cardiff today. Delicious food and great staff, no wonder it was popular. That and two courses for £10. Great place. Going back next time I'm in Cardiff.

Just go. It's really good.

Might be worth booking tho. We turned up at 1.00 and they were full - well not full but they obv thought full enough for the kitchen so they booked us in for 1.30 and we went and had a pint in the Goat Major. :)

Finally got to Oscar's of Cardiff the other day. Did it with the missus and her boy. 7 before 7, a nice little deal. Proper food, nice stuff, and you get a nifty little pot of onion soup as a starter. £7 before 7pm. That's a main. I've not tried the grown-up food yet, but will be going back for sure.

In other news, Seren has closed. Gutted. A Portuguese has opened in its place, and I wonder if it's the same people...

ewww!

went to juno lounge on wellfield rd to eat for first time in ages last night after getting bit of plastic in me veg curry last time from a container :mad:

only ordered blydi tapas fries and onion rings, they teased us with the titchy sideplate and cutlery and left us waiting for about 25/30 mins before i went to ask, one or two others eating downstairs
blokey at bar was giving it that it'd only been 15-20mins and that some else had ordered tapas too, ooooh
wtf! how long does it take to knock out 3 small dishes and 2 side orders? 10 mins? maybe 15?
is it not the idea that smaller dishes should be quicker?
and then when it came the hummus was tasteless and was sent back for a swap with a well hot dish but luke warm food of butternut squash and goats cheese
bread portion was lacking as well.
#firstworldproblems :oops:
the waiting staff were fine and apologetic mind

wish i'd gone to albany fish bar instead!

Juno makes me mad cause it should be really good but so many times I've been disappointed or something silly lets them down! I keep going back as I think one day it'll sort itself out and be great!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds juno utterly underwhelming. I can't understand why it's so popular, the food is mediocre at best. Every time I've eaten there its overpriced stingy and drab plates of fairly tasteless food. I keep on trying it every once in a while because it should be brilliant, most ppl I know think it is and it clearly thinks highly of itself.

Sorry rant over...

don't apologise! go for it
reckon they must not care as they are so busy and don't have much competition this side of town
and the customers are generally aspirational wannabe posho's

there were 2 other people complaining the other night when the hummus went back about their wait
 
the fino lounge in whitchurch is the same, the menu sounds lovely, but when the food arrives it's always shit. They can't even cook a fucking burger properly.

makes.me.so.fucking.angry:mad:

Funnier than he thinks he is.
Had another 2 free Clark's pies this week and I must say they are much better than before the recent changes. the pastry is so short it is like eating a biscuit with a mince beef ang gravy filling. the filling is tastier too these days, a lot more peppery.
