Since the invitations had been given out, I had been thinking about the Halloween party that I was going to host! It was Harley’s birthday during the very first week of big school, so as a result of him not … Continue reading
I am lucky enough to live on the South Coast. A place I have lived all my life. I thank my parents and ultimately my grandparents for choosing Dorset as their home, as I love living here, and I love it that my children will grow up here, enjoying the beautiful beaches and bustling summer lifestyle that I hold so dear in my childhood.
Yes, house prices are expensive here. But having some of the UK’s best blue flag beaches on your doorstep, is surely a reward worth reaping.
Another thing which the South Coast knows how to do pretty darn well, is to cook. We have some fantastic places to dine so I wanted to share with you my favourite restaurant in Bournemouth.
Located in Westbourne, Dorset, is indi’s: specialising in contemporary Indian cuisine, it is hardly surprising that they won the Asian Curry Awards, 2013 for the South West.
Indi’s has built up an enviable reputation during its 10 years of business and sees customers returning again and again, me being one of them.
When you first step foot into the restaurant, you notice the crisp white, clean, contemporary lines which makes this restaurant the most unique place to dine. Front of house always show impeccable hospitality, ensuring that you are well looked after.
The one thing that gets my mouth salivating before I’ve even sat down in this stunning restaurant, is knowing that deliciously light and crisp poppadoms with homemade chutneys will be served to the table while I peruse the menu. Now, I’m not the most adventurous of sorts. I treat my taste buds to what I know they like. My husband is far more audacious and less daunted by trying something new. Indi’s serves to suit both of us.
If you manage to make a decision on your order having looked through the extensive menu and seeing all of the delicious dishes which indi’s has to offer, you will most importantly, notice the taste. It’s different to any other Indian food I have tasted before. It’s delicious. It’s honest. It’s exciting. It’s consistent. The fine ingredients are evident in every mouthful.
The restaurant also serves to suit a more sociable style of dining, if you fancy popping along for your lunch break, or sharing dishes from the Tapas menu. You can also have the true taste of India in your own home with their comprehensive takeaway menu.
And as if this first class restaurant couldn’t offer anymore, they can provide bespoke menus for your private functions or corporate events.
So if you’re local or you are willing to travel to find this little gem of an eatery, which really does push the boundaries of Indian cuisine, then take a look at their website here or ‘like’ their Facebook page, to see that I’m not the only one who rates this restaurant so highly.
