Happiness is a good Indian restaurant you can walk to from home. We were so excited when Sarkhels opened around the corner years back and loved their food, so we were very sad when it closed down. But then Triphal appeared and once again we could relax in the knowledge that our Indian fix could be catered to easily at any time.
My husband loves Indian food…in fact when we have those “If you had to eat one type of food only for the rest of your life, what would it be?” conversations, he always says Indian. So there’s no holding him back if I suggest we go for a curry!
The menu is wide ranging and unbelievably good value. It’s hard to choose which inevitably means we tend to order way too much and proceed to finish it off anyway!
I love all the starters, so (somewhat bossily) tend to tell the table that we should just order loads and share them, which is just what we did tonight.
Main courses, of course are not for sharing…though it’s fair enough to have a taste. Whether you’re vegetarian, love fish or want something really hot there’s something for everyone. We ordered quite a range of dishes and each one was lovely.
Vegetables are great in Indian restaurants! And if I order a sauce-less dish like the tikka (above), I have the perfect excuse to order a vegetable dish to go with it. This was full of great flavours and packed a nice chilli bite, too.
The chicken Chettinard was a spicy baby (three chillies) with perfectly balanced flavours
The staff are pleasant and always smiling, putting up with our rather (too) boisterous table with patience and humour. Another satisfying night at Triphal!
