Spice Lounge, Petersfield

First Floor
1 & 2 the Square
GU32 3HJ

A 500 year old, grade 2 listed building in a market town square is not the most obvious place to find an Indian restaurant, but perhaps its just a sign of how popular the cuisine is in England these days. We visited the Spice Lounge later on in the evening after visiting a couple of Petersfield's pubs.

Inside traditional English timber beams meet 'traditional' high end Indian restaurant style... The menu covered all the dishes I'd expected with some less common ones.

After the obligatory poppadoms our mains arrived. The chicken madras was a popular choice, and the tarka dahl went down well.

I had the veggie karahi which was nicely spiced.

The naan bread was fully puffed up...

There is something about a 'traditional British Indian restaurant' if that's not an oxymoron, that I miss when in Australia. The food may be less authentic, but the experience isn't ever quite repeated in Australia, whether its the flavours, the vibe or service... So for me it was an enjoyable end to an evening.
