The most literal definition of a diamond in the rough. You wouldn’t expect some seriously good Indian food to be found tucked away in a petrol garage complex. But what Al-Amin lacks in curbside glamour it makes up for in buckets of flavour at prices you would never believe. Their chicken briyani and tandoori tikka chicken is worth the roadtrip alone – rising petrol price and all.

The menu is as extensive as the portions are generous. It covers practically every Middle Eastern region with some chowmein thrown in too. As such starters vary from hot noodle soups to chicken nuggets and samoosas. Their curries are rich in flavour, with the usual trappings of masala, jalfreezi, gosht and palak on offer. There is even a beef curry section, which is almost unheard in these parts. If you want to stray away from the usual curry fare there are burgers and even a bit of lobster. Finish the feast off on a sweet note with their jalebi or kulfi.

No booze for sale. You can instead switch it up with some sugarcane juice, a Bombay crush lassi or even an avocado milkshake.

Staff that are efficient, friendly and full of helpful suggestions are always a plus but any establishment that has a wall of toys ready for sale to placate a bevy of bored children gets all the brownie points.

It may seem unassuming from the outside but once you walk in and go upstair is opens up to a banquet hall fit for any massive function. The size of the venue and the somewhat dated décor don’t make for the most intimate of date nights so best you bring along all your friends. Or take (away) the romance home with you instead.

Best for...
Big parties or takeout for Netflix and chill.

    Went with my wife on one occasion and saw a cockroach on the table. Told the waiter about it and did not seem concerned at all. Second time went with a group of friends and found a cockroach leg in the sugar. Disgusting!!!

    No ambience, service bad, naan served raw, aloos big, large quantities ok food. Once was enough.
