No 7 Temple Weybridge

I love a new restaurant to try and one walking distance from my house is even better. On Friday for date-night with my husband we ventured to No 7 Temple in Weybridge. As 'Indian Gastronomy' is their strap line, I was expecting more than a chicken tikka marsala, and I was not to be disappointed.  Whilst perusing the menu I sipped on a glass of Merlot whilst Mr BMB opted for draft Cobra and  popadoms to nibble. Although the classic Indian dishes are available, the specials were recommended and held a senior position on the menu. We decided upon The Railway Lamb Tava and Goan Fish Curry with pilaw rice , garlic nan and okra bhindi and shared a mixed grill as a appetiser. Although the rice, nan and popadoms were pretty much what I'd expect from a local take-away, the meat dishes were pretty special. Made with whole spices, the tastes and flavours were really fresh and and the meat and fish were succulent and well cooked. Although the spices added lots of flavour and a little warmth, the taste shone through rather than the heat I would really recommend the Railway Lamb Tava and the king prawn on the mixed grill was amazing, so next time I want to try the Chola Jhinga - fresh water king prawns grilled in the tandoor. Unlike most curries, I didn't have the gorged feeling after we finished are feast as the food wasn't greasy, so we even managed to share a carrot tart - served with mango smoothies.
Although a little more expensive than your average curry house (special mains £10-13 depending on meat choice, sides around £5) it is definitely worth the extra spend as the taste, service and ingredients are exceptional. I think No 7 Temple might be getting another visit very soon...
