We visited Aangan for the second time this weekend. As before we were seated out the back in the courtyard/garden, though this time we were in the nicely decorated marquee rather than outside, probably a good thing given the wind. It is certainly different to most Indian restaurants I've been too, but still has plenty of character.
We shared two main dishes, the first a Tawa Paneer with marinated paneer, par cooked in charcoal fired oven, then finished on tawa (griddle) with pepper, onion & mushroom in a tomato based sauce. The other was a Chicken Kohlapuri, flavoured with curry leaves and whole red chillies. The chicken was spicier, and contained good sized pieces of chicken, both dishes were new to me, and were well flavoured and spicy, but not too hot and had me wiping out the dishes with my roti.
I've read comments that the service at Aangan was slow, but it was well paced for us.
We were again impressed with Aangan and will be returning soon!
