    i'm definitely a big fan, but sadly not sure i have space for any of this at the moment. I'm in the process of decluttering too. :(

    The shop's been winding down for months now, not re-stocking loads of items, and the VM has looked tired for ages, the sign outside has fallen to bits, the Tikka oven was off for ages.....I was sick after the last time I ate there.

    It's a shame to see both go, but if they have reached the end then they've reached the end.

    Yeah their food has slipped...my boyfriend wasn't well after his first experience. Not good.

    I also got a bit sick after eating there - last year though... :(

    I've noticed their chopped chillies have brown seeds and that can cause tummy issues. There might also be a hygiene issue...their toilets are grim.

    It's a bit annoying. 11-5 probably best of both worlds.

    The VM had slipped my last few visits were best forgotten about.

    For delivery, I started using Gurkha Cottage on Maharani 's advice and haven't looked back since.

    The only half decent this is the one in Herne hill, Lombok but think it's pick up only. I don't eat Chinese food in this country, it's generally rank unless it's somewhere like mandarin oriental.

    I love really shitty Chinese. I go to the one in West Norwood on Lansdowne Hill. If it looks that bad and stays in business, then the food must be good!

    Lombok is a restaurant and you can dine in. I've had many a good meal in there. Reasonably priced as well.

    I'm pretty sure they used to do TA from another venue. I might be wrong.

    I think they have a take away place further up the road toward Dulwich. Same name.

    So it's the 15th and clearly the gasworks haven't finished on Leigham Vale etc. I was just chuckling about that when a letter popped through the door to say a rather noncommital "end of September" as a new date.

    did it mention a year or just September? :hmm: :D

    like I said... noncommittal... :eek::D

    (but you have the same thought processes as gaijinboy who added... "2024?")

    Out of delivery distance *sobs after drooling over the menu and placing an order*.

    The island in the middle of the main road by the junction with Harpenden Road has been removed. Anyone know if its going to be replaced? Its a bit dangerous to cross there without it and its a heavily used crossing, especially by kids.

    Which will be nice when it arrives (& I suggested it in the consultation, so am pleased overall), but the timing of the current change could hardly have been worse. One of the biggest factors in that crossing being a good idea was the number of school kids who crossed dangerously via the island. They've now removed all safe crossing spaces just in time for the start of the school year.. brilliant! That, combined with there being no pedestrian crossing down by Tulse Hill any more (for god knows what reason) leads to a huge stretch of road where the only option is to take your life in your hands & try to find a gap in traffic. Really crappy planning, which seems to have taken no account whatsoever of pedestrians.

    Grumble over, but it really is amazingly dumb.

    Ooooh :cool:

    But yeah, hope they get it done soon 'cos its a dangerous spot.

    Nice to see they've cleared that corner where the empty office is too, that was ugly. Hope they plant something better than the 'edible garden' opposite. Still nowt to eat on it, just weeds. The poppies are their only saving grace.

    That office has planning permission for conversion to residential, btw.

    I'm going to use the new pelican crossing as the new border between Tulse Hill and West Norwood. I might make some signs.

    Better than empty I suppose, but it doesn't look very appealing.

    It's quite clear. Tulse Hill extends South to the fire station, and West Norwood extends North to the railway bridge.

    exactly - for what reason? Because they can't be arsed to put in temporary lights? They don't even need to be turned off at the moment. It's absolutely ridiculous and a nightmare crossing there - even worse with groups of kids. Really annoyed about it tbh.
