Satisfy those curry cravings
The Marigold Indian Restaurant is a cheerful cosy spot with its own fire place well spaced table settings, cushions on the seats and friendly staff.
With over 70 dishes and side dishes to try, it's sure to satisfy those random Indian food cravings.
My friend and I arranged to go there because she enjoyed the meals and I knew it was reasonably priced; a good thing when I just had to pay my car rego!
For entrée my friend gave me one her tandoori drumsticks to try and I had that dilemma of food envy until I bit into the samosa I'd ordered. I love a good samosa, it's almost a meal in itself and this was no exception stuffed with hot spicy potato, green peas and herbs.
For mains, I devoured the Palak Paneer with home made cottage cheese cooked with blended fresh spinach with roasted spices and cream. We also ordered the Eggplant Masala, eggplant and potato sautéed with cumin seed and seasoned with selected herbs and spices.
Because we couldn't go past ordering a curry, we settled on the Marigold special goat curry cooked in traditional Nepalese style with aromatic roasted spices, garnished with fresh herbs.
There was plenty of other dishes to try from Prawn Malai to the favourite lamb vindaloo so its sure to cater to various tastes.
It's fresh, comfy and cheerful and don't forget to try the Marigold special mushroom naan.
