Memsaheb on Thames restaurant review
The popadoms came with the usual fayre of dices onions, mint sauceand mango chutney. The mango chutney was unusually my favourite. I don’t usually like he sweetened puree normally served at Indian restaurants. However, this was a stronger, tamarind infused chutney which had a flavour to rival the chutneys at the Michelin starred Benares Indian restaurant, which I have review here.

Mains at Memsaheb on Thames
I wasn’t so keen on the lamb curry. Despite its unusual name – Lamb Xacuti – it tasted like run-of the mill lamb, and a reheated lamb at that. Both mains came in decent sized portions, so could easily be shared between two. We paid just over £25.00 for two of using our Tastecard, and we had only bought one soft drink and had water. This was reasonable, but if we had paid the full price of nearly £40, I would feel like we hadn’t really had value for money.
So here’s my quick-fire summary…
Memsaheb on Thames restaurant review in a nutshell
Price – two can dine for under £40. Though cheaper with Tastecard
Halal – yes. Some vegetarian options available.
Great if… you want something slightly different (I’m referring to the crab puri starter, not the rest of the menu). Also great if you like your starters mild.
Not so great if… you’re a curry aficionado. This is a bit run-of-the-mill I’m afraid.
