Shi Raaz Fine Indian Cuisine @ Flinder's Lane, Melbourne
It's been a week since Ms Peachia left us... for our final meal together, we went to Shi Raaz fine Indian Cuisine on the corner of Flinders Lane and William Street...
I've passed it by many times, but never thought anything about it.. which is odd since I LOVE Indian food (when my mum was pregnant with me, she had Banana Leaf rice (Msian Indian Cuisine) nearly everyday for 3 weeks, or so the story goes)
My first impressions of walking in was... "Gosh, this is a posh restaurant!"
It was quite busy (Thursday lunchtime)
We gave our orders for various versions of Lemon, Lime and Bitters, which confused the poor waitress and she showed her disdain.. (I wasn't very impressed with her attitude)...
For Lunch, Shi Raaz offers great values and choices...
As a bunch, we ordered the Thali special (sized up) $17.50, they have a smaller option for $14.50
The Thali special comprises of Chicken Tika, Samosa, Chicken Korma and Lamb Rogan Josh (The beef option was changed because of me!)
I was a bit embarassed, but luckily no one complained... *pheww*
Also with it was saffron rice and roti...and a Papaadam... I love Papaadams...
Absolutely great value and the taste was pretty authentic as well.. I shall return another day with a completely empty stomach as I couldn't finish the $17.50 option (much too much food!)
