Anghiti Indian Restaurant, Innaloo
I booked Anghiti Indian Restaurant in Innaloo for Hubby's 32nd birthday celebration especially since we haven't been to Anghiti for a long time. I remembered that Anghiti served great Indian food many years ago and I only hoped that they still do. We also chose this place because Anghiti is listed in the Entertainment Book *grins*.
From outside, Anghiti looked a bit unassuming and small but when you open the door, you'd be able to see how spacious the restaurant is.
I sent through my order ahead of time to Dalbir Kandola, the man in charge of the booking. That way the chef can prepare everything as soon as all of our family members arrived. We ordered each of everything below but added an extra rice, naan and butter chicken.
Hubby's parents never tried Indian food before and they usually stuck to a good steak for special occasions so this was a good treat for them :-). Our favourite was the butter chicken and we ended up ordering two extra servings of chili nan to dip into the rest of the buttered tomato gravy.
The chili naan was everyone's favourite and tastier when compared with the garlic nan. I feel like someone should make an Indian fusion naan like cheese and chili. Imagine how yum it can be!
The lamb madras was so tender, it was cut in cubes and cooked with cashew nuts that gave the crunchy texture to it. The Goan fish curry was another favourite of the day especially since it had a bit of fresh ginger aroma to it.
Anghiti has a large window to the kitchen so you will be able to see all the action behind the scenes. There won't be a lot of waitstaff at the restaurant because each table has a bell to call them. We didn't realise this before and we were wondering why there were barely any staff on the floor. It wasn't until my grandma pointed out the black button with the word 'bell' in the middle of the table that we pressed the button and the staff promptly appeared.
The quality of the food was really good and all of us came out from the restaurant with really full tummies. It seemed that Anghiti's quality didn't suffer at all since many years ago. Since we were in a group of 7, we used two entertainment book vouchers which gave us a total of '25% up to $60' instead of just up to $30. Two vouchers can be used if there are more than 4 people in your party. Our total discount that day was $54!
Anghiti really delivers in taste with the food we tried and we were very satisfied. There's also plenty of parking which makes it a great option if you're planning a big lunch/dinner event.
