The Red Rose, Basingstoke

Yesterday we ventured out to an Indian restaurant with our Basingstoke friends. They'd been before and it seems they'd had a major revamp inside, the decor very modern and nice, although they could do with removing a few tables to give a bit more space. I had the prawn purée to start, Ian the tandoori king prawns, both very tasty. For mains, Ian chose a creamy mangoy chicken curry, and I went for my usual lamb tikka massalla. Both very nice and decent portions. The other two mains our friends ordered were also good but no idea what they were (think one was a korai)! The bombay aloo was very good too, nice soft potatoes, good sauce. Ian and I went for the standard frozen desserts, both good although I didn't manage to finish mine cos I was a bit full!

Prawn *purée*?!

Yep - I've had it at several indian places before - it's basically small prawns all spicy in a sauce on a chapatti. It's good.
