It’s a number of years since I last ate in this Indian restaurant, directly adjacent to the Church, in the town centre. The competition in Middlewich has stiffened a little in the last few years with a couple of takeaways opening and the relatively popular Eastern Nights only about a 100 yards away. This probably explains why they are advertising a set price evening meal for £9.00, which seems a very reasonable offer, but would the quality be up to it?

The answer is, it was up to it. Sandro & I decided to go for the set dinner menu, which gave the option of a number of starters and main courses with rice or a nan bread.

The Cheshire Indian is a family run restaurant, with what appeared to be most of the family helping out in some way. It has been established for many years and been refurbished since my last visit. Included in the makeover are some of the plushest seats for many miles around. It has also been redecorated and carpeted to a good standard.

It was a quiet evening, with only another table or so occupied on the occasion of our visit. I don’t know how typical this is, but it was also early in the evening and possibly neither their busiest day nor busiest time. As a consequence, the atmosphere was perhaps a little jaded.

We studied the set dinner options and also the main menu, and decided the set dinner options were pretty comprehensive. We ordered poppadums and chutneys and some lager to be going along with. For starters I chose Sheek Kebabs, Sandro ordered the Onion Bhaji. For main course I chose a Lamb Rogan Josh and Sandro chose the Chicken Dopiaza. We also ordered two portions of rice and a nan bread.

The starters were fine, not exceptional but just fine. The main courses were a little unusual, but good. They were unusual because of the thinner than usual curry gravy, which was nicely flavoured and spiced. Obviously this is their ‘house style’ and it was refreshing to find a departure from the expected consistency of Indian restaurant food. I would say that this definitely added to the home cooked, family atmosphere of the restaurant. I think that this is it’s unique selling point and would expect it to attract its own strong local following from those ‘in the know’.

The meat portions in both main courses were good and the portions of pillau rice were large. The rice was well cooked, hot and aromatic.

Overall, Sandro and I were impressed by this unassuming restaurant, which I suspect may get overlooked in the face of much local opposition. I would definitely recommend this for a visit and if the offer of a set dinner is still running then it is a definite bargain.
