The choice for curry of the month was an easy one in December. Popping down to Tokyo station Yaesu exit, and then a five-minute stroll will bring you to a restaurant that has pretty much the works in terms of Indian cuisine. We have been there a couple of times in the evening, but this was the first time for lunch. The meal came from a choice of five sets, and the one we chose contained two curries (our choices were chicken and fish), sambar and rasam, poori, basmati rice, salad and dry papad. Oh, and they threw in a complimentary beer, too. The sambar, rasam, and basmati were on repeat, and I personally asked for three more rice and two more of the other two. The basmati was dry and fragrant and excellently prepared – I could eat a plate of it on its own – and the curries were abundant with soft and succulent ingredients. The poori was just the right amount of oily (a great alternative to a stomach-filling naan), and the papad was light and crispy. The sambar and rasam were flavorful, but if I had one criticism it would be that I would prefer a few more base ingredients in the sambar, but seriously no complaints in the grand scheme of things. All in all a fantastic lunchtime feast and we will be going back for more, even if it's just for the superb rice.
