Sorry followers, no food photos for this blog due to technical issues (i.e. forgetting camera!!)
During a trip to Oxfordshire, we were invited out by friends to The Dil Raj, Indian restaurant in Abingdon, near Oxford.
We did book, and good job as it was quite busy, although it looked like a few of the tables might have been Christmas parties so it might not always be that busy.
On sitting down we were offered Poppadoms and our drink orders were taken.
Poppadoms were crisp, tasty and served with 6 different, gorgeous dips in a revolving dip tray.
I started with a Vegetable Samosa - two gorgeously crisp triangles stuffed to bursting with tasty vegetables, they were huge and served with a beautiful dressed salad.
They were followed with two side orders, rather than a main course, of Mottor Paneer (Peas with Indian Cheese) and a fabulous dish - Gobi & Pumpkin (Slow cooked cauliflower with tasty pumpkin immersed in mixed seeds and spices ) which was amazing !
We shared Rices and Naans, both of which was delicious.
Prices were great, and the house wine, which was a lovely Chilean Merlot, was only £10.50 a bottle.
Total bill came to £105 for 4 people, poppudums, starters, rices, bread, 3 bottles of wine and 2 soft drinks.
Will definately be back someday.
Here are their contact details.
