As thousands (if not millions) of people spent the last week or so stuffing their faces with tins of Roses and Quality Street, January 1st marks the start of more diets than any other time of the year.

I’ve mentioned The Banyan Tree earlier on this blog, but for new readers all you need to know is that it’s the best Indian restaurant in Peterborough. Next to the Cock Inn in Werrington to be precise.

So it’s with great surprise (to me at least) that I find myself recommending The Banyan Tree in Peterborough (Werrington). I visited the restaurant mid-week for a family birthday (mine!) and we had an absolutely fantastic time. Words really do not do this restaurant justice.

A few weeks ago I happened across a delicacy that had previously evaded me from my usual Indian restaurant visits. The more I read about it the more I found myself wanting to try it, you know how it is.
Normally only for those in the know, the Nargis kebab is typically ordered off the menu, with the waiter checking with the chef that “it can be done”. Continue reading “Nargis Kebab”
