My favourite haunt for Indian cuisine in the Birmingham locale.

For starters I went for the Mirza Ghasemi (Baked, crushed aubergine, slow cooked with tomatoes, garlic and eggs) with Persian bread. Main course Bakhteari (lamb and chicken kebab) with saffron rice. Washed down with saffron lager. Service was good, and the restaurant pretty smart. In words of Peter Kay, I should have asked "Has tha nowt moist?". Bit dry for my palate.

When one door closes, another one opens. A fragile soul may have been deterred after a knock-back from the favourably reviewed Ah-Hua II. However, a man must eat, so I continued back towards Wiedikon and thought I would go for my second choice, the unimaginably named, 'Five Spices'. I was made immediately welcome, and the second waitress in attendance had already gone to get an English version of the menu when she heard me speaking to the first. The steamed Dim Sum for starters, at 15 CHF, was excellent, complimented by a zesty dipping sauce. For the main course, I chose the 'Nua Pad Prig Khing'. The four-word dish carried a three chilli heat rating, and the mature waitress tried to discourage me from ordering it. She cited many locals finding it too spicy to their taste. This little lady was unaware that I lived a stones-throw from the Balti Triangle of Birmingham, and so my palate was well conditioned. Although slightly too salty, the Beef curry dish was spot on, and fragrant rice a reassuring accompaniment, as comforting as a Yorkshire pudding with a Sunday roast. To show my sophistication to the locals, I asked for chop-sticks to chomp through the 27 CHF dish. Chop-sticks - in the hands of a Westerner - add a few additional minutes to any meal. To top a great meal, the Thai lady asked me is I was here for 'long time'? Unfortunately no, but the memories will.

Worst Indian dining experience. Ever. I chose to make the longish walk, in the cold rain, to Swaad this Thursday night because Thursday nights at Swaad are buffet nights. Right? Apparently not. Read on. I arrive circa 8pm. One couple with a baby are leaving, another couple are close to finishing. I am given a welcome as sparse as the customer roll-call in the event of a fire drill. Five minutes later, I am the only customer in there. A young fellow saunters over and drops two menus before me. He makes a recommendation. A drinks recommendation of sparkling wine, topped off with mango juice. All for only 10 CHF. "No, thank you, my good man. I'll settle for a large beer at half the price". I then picked up the other menu and enquired "Not buffet?". No. Not buffet. Menu. I chose the 'Hajari Kebab' (13.50 CHF) for starters, and safe-bet, 'Swaad Thali' (33.50 CHF) for main. It turns out that my trip to Swaad has taught me some new Hindi words. I now know that Hajari translate to 'plain chicken', and 'Swaad' means 'premium price for no discernible added premium'. Here's the rub. At 9 o'clock a coach-load (I have a photo of the coach) of about 30 Indian folk rolled into the restaurant and immediately started helping themselves to the bain-marie's of food I had passed on my entrance. Turns out Thursday *was* buffet night, just not buffet night for me. My thali contained a curry dish with fish that was cooked on one half only, and a small blob of creamy chicken curry with 3 chicken cubes languishing. I couldn't work out what to do with the bowel of plain yoghurt. I ate my rice, dipped my naan, and exited - never to return.
