Sun 3rd Dec 2000

Taking our son back to digs in Rusholme, we decided to forgo our usual Sunday Roast Dinner, and go for an Indian.

Sangam is one of the few we hadn't tried in Rusholme, and had been recommended by a friend at work. A short walk from his digs, and we were at the Manchester end of the main conglomeration of restaurants on Wilmslow Road. A quick look in through the window confirmed that it was well attended, and nicely decorated - even with "Christmasy" decorations.

We went in and were told that smokers tables were available, but we'd have to wait ten minutes for a non-smoker. We retired to the bar and had a couple of beers, a coke and a gin and tonic. Five minutes later we were invited to our table.

The restaurant is bright and airy, with a friendly buzz. The staff were attentive and pleasant.

Poppadoms and relishes arrived quickly (though un-bidden). The relishes were very good, and we all made the usual mistake of "piggin out" on the poppadoms!

Sheek Kebab, Chicken Tikka, and Fish Tikka were selected for starters - Marg hadn't the appetite, and said she would pinch some from Kathryn, who was unsure as to whether she would like Indian food. All three were excellent - The fish was particularly good. I could see what was going to happen to me, so I left one of my kebabs to be wrapped up to take home!

Main courses were: Lamb Pathia, Lamb Rezala, Chikken Tikka Dopiaza and Chicken Korma. 2Nan breads and two portions of Pilau rice. We all tried some of each other's dishes. They were all very good, although the Pathia was, to our taste, too deeply flavoured (and coloured) of tomato.

As we predicted, we were unable to finish the meals, and we noted that several other diners were takning home "doggy bags", so we ended up with quite a bit to take back home. They were kind enough to add a fresh portion of rice - a nice touch.

To finish off, Marg had a coffee, which she enjoyed, and I tried, for the first time, a Mango Lassi. This was similar to a milk shake, and was quite enjoyable. The verdict is that we all enjoyed not only the meal, but the ambience of the place.

Verdict: Recommended
